various gigs with Ocean in England and a residency as drummer with the jazz-trio
of my Sound-Source partner
Penny Tobin on keyboards,
I also played the all-yearly English summer-gig with the American band “Dharma
Bums“ (Phil Hemley, Joe Flood & Co.) 1988
and 89 at the Glastonbury Festival
and 1990 in London.
Commissioned work as arranger and composer for songs and soundtracks.
the activities with the jingles company Sound Source I became more and more
involved with the art of programming. 1990 I started to write my own songs,
many of which Betty Semper fitted with lyrics and the necessary vocal-lines.
This work went so well, that I decided to produce ten of them. I contacted
Vienna, where Katarina, a
friend of mine, put up funds to finance the production. On my visit to Vienna
to arrange the necessary logistics I first met Pimpfy
and his “Beserlpark Studio“,
where the production was to take place. This was another beginning of a
long-standing productive relationship. The production of the LP “Discovery“
took place between December 27th ,1990 and January 18th , 1991, with runny
noses and sore throats but still successfully.
