Noahs Boat - …doesn’t it have to say „Noah’s Ark?“. Not in this case! Noahs Boat is not a story in that sense. They are a story-telling band from Berlin. Without lyrics. Meaning; they play instrumental music. They create images, landscapes and feelings around you and if you let yourself fall head first into yourself: inside you as well.

I can actually say that for sure - if their style hasn’t changed dramatically - as I have seen them play live on several occasions now. And every time they were able to let me forget my surroundings and what happened during the day. This sets the bar for this album quite high I think, as I am now listening just to the music without having the live atmosphere.

The Less You Love, The Less You Live is actually coming out on 1st November 2018, so for the first time ever, Shibbster Tweets is presenting you an exclusive pre-release revi…

I got to know OdeVille during the local heroes contest in 2007 in Hanover. Back then, they had English lyrics and were somewhat ‚harder‘ than they are now. Let’s be honest: Of course in 2007 the emo and scene music was sparkling and ubiquitous. …and influenced bands like OdeVille a little as well. Nonetheless: When emo and scene slowly started to disappear, OdeVille did not. They are still a high-quality independent band from Northern Germany. Maturing as people and maturing as musicians. Their first album „I am Tourist“ (2009) sounded already way more controlled than their live-performances that I saw in 2007. To be honest, after that a…

What composing music for an Escape Room has taught me

What composing music for an Escape Room has taught me
Well, today for something completely different. Not only do I work as a mixing & mastering engineer, but I also do compose instrumentals for clients and perform, record and produce them. This year I was given the fabulous opportunity to compose the background music for an Escape Room in Hanover.
But first, let me elaborate on the background story a little... I have composed two songs for Olly’s debut Album „Normal Kann Jeder“, and I arranged all the other compositions for his album. The entire album serves the genre of pop-rock/pop-punk. And was my first big gig that I landed as a composer/arranger & session musician. It was fairly easy for me to meet the expectations because the desired genre was very close to my comfort zone (e.g. Laetitia, iCarus, Heute Tanzen, Wet Beach…). But being the curious music addict that I am, I want to learn more genres and more approaches to composing music. One of my things to do before I die is…
