A great project at the great studio that is Salmagundi in Northfield, MN. I assisted Brian Paulson for Trace in late 1994.
How I learned to stop worrying
I produced with Chris Dorn, recorded the whole thing and mixed with Dave Kent. Summer of 1996.
My first full involvement with the whirlwind that was Prince. With him, I tracked, edited and/or mixed about a third of this mammoth achievement in 1996.
The acoustic album that ended up being tucked away in the Crystal Ball compilation. Started in December of 1996 and finished in the spring of 1997. With Prince, I tracked, edited and mixed.
A supremely fun rock project that I tracked at Salmagundi in Northfield, MN and mixed at Seedy Underbelly in Minneapolis. Produced by Jacques Wait and me and released in 1997.
A mind-boggling two week assessment of unheard Prince music in 1997, albeit barely scraping the wealth of Prince's famous vault. Most songs were done, so I mainly edited, did a couple of overdubs and the odd mix.
Come 2 my house
Some singers need my help. She doesn't. I recorded, edited and mixed with Prince and the enjoyable duo of Ricky Petersen and the late Tom Tucker. 1998.
Graham Central Station
I was introduced to one of the pillars of funk while engineering a record for him with Prince. How cool can life in the studio get? 1998.
I started being the recording dude and ended up mixing a song and even co-producing a bit. The time was 1998 and the place the former Replacements studio in Minneapolis.
Prince and the Revolution
1999 The New Master (Single)
A timely re-make of the original, which has since vanished into the far reaches of Prince lore. I got to listen to the original master tapes and to engineer the alterations in late 1998.
Rave un2 the joy fantastic
The most fun Prince album to make for yours truly. Recorded, edited and mixed by Prince and me in 1999.
Maceo Parker had turned up at Paisley at the tail end of the Rave album in 1999, and Prince duly gave him two tracks off that album for Maceo to use. I engineered the Paisley bits before Maceo added his parts.
Mittermeier & Friends
Das AK-Chromosom-Arschlochkind strikes back
This is one of the first mixes I made in Munich, Germany, when I considered re-locating there in 2001.
A great deal - Gwen Stefani sang on a Prince song and Prince vamped up one of No Doubt's in return. I engineered Prince's parts and Ms. Stefanis original vocals in late 1999.
A town called seven
My first full exposure to the German way of making records, which was helped by the great studio that is Cap A Pie in Regensburg, Germany. I engineered and produced with the band, mainly in 2001.
Zauberwelt der Klänge
Dorothée Kreusch-Jacob is an accomplished author of children's books and music. This album illustrates her spiritual side and marks my entrance into her musical family. Edited and mixed by me in 2002.
Johannes Tonio Kreusch
Johannes is son to Dorothée and brother to Cornelius, and I got to work on many great projects with all of them. This one marks the first one with Johannes, and I did tracking and editing on it in 2003.
Very cool project with the former Smokie singer in 2003. I engineered, Michael Beckmann produced.
Mama get real
A smoking hit for the Italian legend, cooked up by Mousse T in 2003. I mixed this in Hannover, Germany's Peppermint Park Studios and at Logic Studios in Milan, Italy.
A fun example for the slew of work I did for Italian producing legends La Bionda. This mix is from 2004.
Life is beautiful
The most intense work I did for Cornelius Claudio Kreusch. I engineered and co-produced throughout 2003 and 2004.
Word of mouth
An album I'm very proud of. I recorded and mixed most of the songs in 2004 and 2005.
My little red bag
A fun and wonderfully offish album all around. I set up sounds for the tracking and returned for the mix when everything was recorded in 2004.
Eric Burdon and the animals
Athens traffic Live (CD+DVD)
I recorded a bit with the legend that is Eric Burdon, and I mixed the bonus bits for this live DVD in 2005.
Rising Girl (Single)
I produced this single at my house in 2003 from an original rough recording the band provided. Number one in their native Austria for several weeks in 2005.
George Clinton presents The P-Funk All Stars
Perhaps the most fun result of the creative ping pong Prince played with his buddies. I tracked Prince's contribution in 1999.
This album was recorded and mixed in ten days and it's lost none of its freshness. I mixed about half the tracks in 2005.
An Austrian cousin to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Mixed at Recordable Studio, near Vienna, Austria, in late 2005.
Mixed in 2006 at Peppermint Park studios in Hannover, Germany. My first collaboration with producer Jan van der Toorn.
A very fun remix of these Europop legends. It's great to to look into somebody's cards that you've known all your life through their multitracks. From 2006.
Superstrings (then "Wake") were my first clients when I moved to Germany in 2001. I love their music and this album from 2007 should show you why. Mixed at their studio in Munich.
The Jet Pack!
As fun and Technicolor as rock mix as I could have ever wished to make. Produced by Nils Ruzicka, I mixed this in 2006.
I mixed this live DVD and album of the group's many hits at Wolfgang Lenk's Wolke studio in early 2007.
Mousse T. and various
The assignment was to audibly re-create the 60s for a movie, and did we ever! Tracked, assembled and mixed with way too much fun in 2007.
This marks the only time I've ever produced without simultaneous engineering duties. Recorded in Saint Privat, France, in 2006 and mixed in Vienna in 2007.
Die neuen Männer
I was the project whip as one of five producers for his album in 2008. I also recorded some and mixed it all.
Dahoam is dahoam (Soundtrack)
This is the only album I ever did that impressed my Grandma. Mixed in Munich in 2008.
Band of the day
Co-produced, recorded and mixed at Peppermint Park, Hannover, Germany, in 2009.
Amazonia Live in the jungle (DVD)
A live mix for the Scorpions; my first one for the band! Mixed at guitarist Rudolf Schenker's Scorpio Studio in 2009.
This crazy song is as of now the only release of a wonderful recording session with Joss Stone and her band at her keyboard player's home in Abensberg, Germany. Late 2007.
Mousse T. & Suzie
All nite long (D.I.S.C.O.)
I've been heavily involved in many great projects with outstanding producer Mousse T., but he usually mans the controls himself when it comes to his own projects. This is one of the few exceptions. 2009.
Männer am Meer
A fun production project with a lot of travel to Biel, Switzerland, in 2010 and early 2011.
Rickie Lee Kroell
Recorded live at Tweed Studio in Munich, Germany, and mixed at my very own Aural Majority Pad in 2010.
Sorriso De Flor
A classic session - recorded very quickly with a hired band and mixed in something like three days in 2009.
The proud Egyptian
The very first album I mixed entirely in the box. Turned out nice, though, didn't it? 2010.
Live 2011 (CD+DVD)
My first mix for a 3D project in 2011.
Mousse T et al.
Mann tut was mann kann (Soundtrack)
Kind of an anthology of my near-decade of work with Mousse T and his crew as an engineer and even co-producer. Assembled for a movie soundtrack in 2012.
Copacobana (at the Copa)
Another classic that I got to re-assemble for a remix. This time in 2011.
I got to record a part of this at Abbey Road Studios in 2011, so to me, it'll always be huge. Mixed a couple of tracks, too, both at Peppermint Park Studios and in my Aural Majority Pad.
Das gezeichnete Ich
Hinter allen Dingen
A summer spend in front of laptops and a couple of days spent at Hamburg's Home Studios yielded this album in 2013.
Ich würd' Dich gerne wieder siezen
Made during three sessions in three different years in producer Tobias Künzel's Brotmann basement studio, this album was released in 2014.
The Sound of Slow
This album was mixed all over the place - in Tuscany, Munich and at my house, before it was finalized in late 2014 in Berlin's Freudenhaus Studios. Well worth the effort!
Return To Forever
This is mainly an album based on the many outtakes the Scorpions amassed during their long career, masterfully improved by Swedish producers Nordhansen. Recorded between 2012 and 2014 at Scorpio Studios. I mixed the bonus concert films on the 2016 tour edition at my Aural Majority Pad.
Forever and a day (Documentary)
I mixed the concert moments for this documentary in 2013. If you need to brush up on your Scorpions history and want to see my bald head on your screen in the process, check it out!
I very happily mixed this fine fonky offering at my Aural Majority Pad and at Freudenhaus Studios during 2014 and 2015. A musical conversation well worth continuing.
