The following file is an example of how to do a drum solo, having fun with your drumsticks. And -otherwise- I make a little servertest. The job is to upload a file with 44 mb and to see, what happens? I guess, it will work with fast internet connections. If you are allowed to leave a comment at this website, feel free to give me some words about it….but be patient, this solo is a file with nearly 19 minutes duration, whow, isn´t this a sexual healing?[audio:WS_30003.mp3]
Another fine audio example, how I played these songs in earlier times. The situation was a little bit like home recorders work on audio works. All these audio works were recorded with a 16 track TASCAM recording engine. In the beginning we had a MITEC mixing desk with 40 tracks, later we bought a brandnew Yamaha O2r digital mixing desk, it was one of the newest technical toys You were able to buy in 1996…it was fucking cool, folks…
Hear it and have fun.[audio:headnshoulders.mp3]
This song is a common work of a big team with so many regards to be successful. We played that song, and we made backing vocals to it with Maja Joel-Dürr and Billy Brooks.
A record company liked that song. They said to us, that we have to play that song in an audition for the german preselection for the Grand Prix Eurovision Contest. But if we do, we have to sing it in german. So we did. Our texter was Norbert Hammerschmidt, who was well known as texter for Hildegard Knef (‚Für mich solls rote Rosen regnen‘) and many other famous artists. We did our work, but suddenly there was a big crise in between the relation of our singer and our keyboarder. They´d been on strike, and the band divorced – one day before the final curtain fell down. Sorry about that, but shit happens….[audio:grandprix_refreshed.mp3]
Our songlist was very long, and we tried 2 become famous popstars. Hear another song of mr. man & friends, a really funky one…[audio:sweetest.bitterness.mp3]
Another song is this one:Facts, Reality, ….. This song is played by the same persons and it´s full of emotions. Have fun 2 hear it.[audio:factsreality.mp3]
Here is an audio file from a song called ‚America‚, it was in 1996. Performed by mr. man & friends: Rüdiger Lange (vox), Steffen David (g.), Hugh McBrien (g.), Stepan Dragan (b.), Tommy Tulip (dr.). This song was written by me and I guess, Step made the basslines 2 it, wasn´t he?[audio:america.mp3]
Look here, folks, this is a reminder for myself. I saw her in television today, and I have to remember her. She is fantastic, and she can´t hear. She feels it, she is deaf and she is wearing no shoes…., I added her to my uncomplete list of drummers drummers….
A really nice instrument, which is a little bit to expensive, is the hang-drum. Have fun looking this little piece with some hang-stuff.
