Glitterbug interview on MDR Sputnik Roboton

Friday, April 27th, 2012

I did a radio interview for the German public radio station MDR Sputnik, which was aired last Wednesday, April 25th, 2012. More info about the show here. It’s obviously in German, and I got to tell a few of the stories behind the tracks. Thanks Gesine Kuehne for the nice interview!

‘Cancerboy’ news!

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Two weeks prior to the release of my next album ‘Cancerboy’ I wanted to share a few bits and pieces with you.

First of all- take a look at the microsite of the album!

I also just uploaded a first track for streaming on my SoundCloud profile:

My most favorite video artist, Ronni Shendar, created an amazingly beautiful and touching video for this track. Check out the preview, the full video will be released soon.

Glitterbug’s Bandcamp site in place!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

If you were wondering how to find those Glitterbug tracks in lossless quality or how to order vinyl while still getting the files in any format you ever wanted, incl. all those wonderful audiophile HQ, lossless files, look no further! My Bandcamp site is up and running, and you can order directly from there, both the digital and the physical goods.

If you want your money to go to the artist directly, I believe that there’s no better way on the web at the moment.

Here’s my latest release:

New live set uploaded: live at Glashaus, Bayreuth, 2nd of December 2012

Thursday, February 9th, 2012


This was our last show before the pre-album-release break (Cancerboy is out May 7th, 2012, we’ll be back on stage in April!). Thanks to the lovely people at Glashaus Bayreuth, it was such a great pleasure to be on your stage. We could have not hoped for a nicer tour finale!! And also a very special mega thanks to the dear 24h Kollektiv people!

The set was recorded straight from my sub mixer, stereo out, into a small Tascam recorder, that’s it. No further editing or post production has been done to the file.

New EP “Egress” out today!

Friday, February 3rd, 2012


My ‘Egress’ EP is out on the Israeli label False Industries! Hurray! Thanks Yair for your efforts, I am so exited about this.

False005: Glitterbug with a dark and magical release on False Industries. This Release will come with remixes of The Sight Below and Tilman Ehrhorn

Egress is a work for string ensemble and electronics composed and recorded by Glitterbug, consisting of four chapters – Vacuity, Span, Stagger and Appraise.

Continuing his notable cinematic approach and pushing it to its next level, Glitterbug unveils Egress as audible storytelling, similar to radio-play and audio drama scores, dealing with notions of escape, isolation, loss, mourning, and undefined fear.

The composition’s thirty minutes are desolate and bare. They narrate an idea of a final, irreversible departure, presenting a soundtrack travelling through vacuous territories and hollow drifts. It narrates a void of inhabitable space, documenting the emotionality of the sound of a world post society, of a future in an unknown and possibly hostile place.

Egress is formed by a reduced musical structure, built upon discerning tonal subtleties, suspended single notes, and harmonics going slowly atonal.

(Note to the listener: As the work explores wide ranges of sound and tone, a decent stereo system or high quality headphones are required to fully experience the work, as computer or laptop speakers will obliterate vast parts of its frequency range.)

New DJ set online: Glitterbug @ Pacotek, Tel Aviv, 22nd of July 2011.

Audible Approaches For A Better Place

Thursday, April 28th, 2011


What if artists composed music for a better world?

Audible Approaches For A Better Place

Haus der Kulturen der Welt,
John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10 10557 Berlin
Doors open 19:30 / Concert begins 20:00 (sharp!)

One evening with 10 live performances by:
Casper Clausen and Mads Brauer (of EFTERKLANG) feat. Karim Ghahwagi
Christian Löffler
Eliad Wagner
Gold Panda
Glitterbug and Ronni Shendar feat. Enas Massalha
Jasmina Maschina
John Kameel Farah
and very special surprise guests (to be revealed in May!)

c.sides asked ten diverse artists (and bands) to create new works, all sharing one goal:
to make a humble contribution toward making this world a better, more just and beautiful place!

Artists had full freedom in their creative process. We provided only general guidelines to participating artists regarding the project’s concept and an intended timeframe of ten to fifteen minutes for each piece, in order to allow the artists to develop an idea beyond the limitations of a ‘regular track.’ We also encouraged artists to work with different musical means than they usually would!

This is an artistic experiment we have wanted to do for a very long time. It is a personal reaction to the overwhelming global and local injustices, catastrophes and troubles, and stems from a slightly naïve, yet sincere belief that art, in its essence, can be a political act and path to changing the world. The idea is self-critical and self-deprecating, yet genuine and heartfelt: to create something beautiful and thoughtful, to dedicate a bit of our creative time to pondering the world and our role in it.

And the results? Probably our most beautiful production yet!

And, it will take place on one of Berlin’s best sounding stages: the large auditorium at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

It has been an amazing experience for us to see the pieces come together, miraculously corresponding with one another and with our own individual works. And we don’t think anyone should miss out on this event.

One first step to making this world a better place is that entry costs only 8 Euros at the door, and 5 Euros for those eligible for discount!!!

A Second step is that a (double CD) release under the same title (Audible Approaches for a Better Place) will be released on the c.sides Label in September featuring all the works of all participating artists. The release will already be available for purchase on May 12th for those who attend the event. Yep, that’s 4 months before the official release date!

This evening is part of the HKW Lokal program, as part of the ÜBER LEBENSKUNST initiative, more info here.

Glitterbug’s Wet The Cat Mix

Saturday, October 30th, 2010


Glitterbug’s Wet The Cat Mix by Glitterbug

This is yet another part of the fantastic “never released podcasts” series. This one was made for a large online platform that has both an R and an A in its name. Originally supposed to be released around the release date of my last album, it was postponed and postponed, and half a year later, I thought to share it regardless. It’s more techno and a slight bit more “mainstream” than usual…

01. Glitterbug – Calcutta
02. SCSI-9 – r7l20
03. Martin Buttrich – Enough Love to Hate it
04. Cari Lekebusch – Rainbow Beard
05. Gerge Levin – Falling Mansory (Stimming Remix)
06. Griffin – Up Class
07. John Tejada – The Open
08. Konstantin Siebold – Apart
09. Eric Johnston – Labrador
10. Hector Moralez – No Shame
11. Pepe Arcade – Subfever
12. Laurent Garnier – Stargazing
13. The Martinez Brothers – Won’t Somebody (Original Mix)

This mix was entirely made by hand, utilizing only two Technics turntables and a old Dateq 3 channel mixer. For tracks that I don’t have on vinyl, I use one of those silly DJ programs with vinyl control.

Two Remixes for Gold Panda

Thursday, October 7th, 2010


Here are two remixes I made for Gold Panda‘s wonderful Snow & Taxis EP, taken from his current album ‘Lucky Shiner’ on Ghostly.

The ‘Pink Snow Balls Remix’ is available on the (beautiful!!!) clear vinyl edition of the ‘Snow And Taxis’ EP, that comes with remixes by myself and Throwing Snow, in addition to the original version of the track. The vinyl is available in the UK through Gold Panda’s Notown label, and internationally through Ghostly. The more ambient take of the ‘Nightly Snow Fall Remix’ is available as a digital bonus track.

Boomkat says says about the ‘Pink Snow Balls Remix': “Glitterbug sticks with the more linear pulse of the original, daubing it with warm, atmospheric pads and a shoegazy techno breakdown that Trentemøller would be jealous of… it’s deadly!”

Here they are:
