May/June: I recorded Basswerk 11 vinyl (Damn Wire/ Copper to iron, mastered by Simon @ The Exchange and put it up for free! Bandcamp also includes some sound examples from my performance under my real name @ Klang & Raum Festival, Koeln, St. Gertrud, November 2019. When performing live, I improvised over it, so this is just the „barebone“ and very raw, but I still like it, so I decided to give this away for free/ pay what you want.

Do April 30...    Basswerk x Deegree x Drop That Stream in den Mai .. DJ&VJ performance with Sehvermoegen
Marcel Panne and I have been performing at "Basswerk Sessions" @ Gebäude 9 since 1998 - varying intensities in sound and picture. I'm aware there is a new wave of formatted Drum & Bass "in town", but to me this is what the genre is about (this is 1hr of our stream without the transmission interferences incl many dubplates)

Friday March 7: Synaesthesia Liveact...  who am I? Heiner? The Green Man? Philo saw me @ Klang & Raum and asked me to do something between Ambient & Jungle.... I always love that approach... it happened @ Niehler Freiheit...the last event before Corona...it was spooky...we knew it was coming, but we ...just did it one last time.

Saturday Jan 11, Basswerk Session @ Gebaeude 9 Koeln again - feat. Document One. Gebaeude 9 has been totally renewed.

November 17 18h under my real name I performed an Ambient Set @ Klang & Raum/ St. Gertrud. I plan to do more ambient stuff in the future - some tracks do have a soundtrack vibe. Ill also play @ Philo‘s event Synaesthesia

I compose and produce mainly elctronic music, especially Drum & Bass music and Jungle, often with a spheric, dubby or jazzy touch as „The Green Man (TGM)“ . I learnt piano playing, arranging and synth programming - and experiment. Before my new projects I released two albums and a lot of singles on various labels (including „Sound Power“ in 2013). I also run label projects including „Basswerk“.  I compose music for good movies and pictures and like to do remixes and collabs with good musicians. Music is a “dialog” and I also sing in a choir.
I wrote a (german) book about Logic Pro X, did a Hands on Kontakt Tutorial DVD and in the early years wrote a book about Reason. I teach creative music production classes and developed a course about Beat- and Music Design for Akademie Deutsche Pop/ United Pop  (Logic, NI Komplete, Ableton, Pro Tools).  I also write reviews and workshops about new stuff. Sometimes I also add a few tutorial videos.

Ich komponiere und produziere hauptsächlich elektronische Musik, gern auch dubbig, cinematisch oder jazzig. bevorzugt Jungle und D&B als “The Green Man (TGM)”. Ich habe Klavier, Arrangement und Synthesizer Programmierung gelernt und experimentiere. Ich habe vor den aktuellen “22 Jahre Basswerk” Projekten zwei Alben und viele Singles auf verschiedenen Labels veröffentlicht (incl. „Sound Power“ 2013). Ich betreibe verschiedene Labels, vor allem „Basswerk“. Ich remixe, komponiere Musik für Filme und arbeite gern mit guten Musikern, auch anderer Genres. Musik ist ein Dialog - und das erlebe ich auch im Chor, in dem ich singe. Ich habe ein Buch über Logic Pro X geschrieben (deutsch, neue überarbeitete Auflage erschienen 2017, Rheinwerk Verlag/Ex Galileo Press), eine „Hands On Kontakt“ DVD produziert und vor längerer Zeit auch ein Buch über Reason geschrieben. Ich unterrichte kreative Musikproduktionskurse (Logic, NI Komplete, Ableton, Pro Tools) und habe ein Kurskonzept für die Akademie Deutsche Pop / United Pop erstellt. Ich schreibe regelmässig über neue Musikproduktionstools. Manchmal erstelle ich auch Tutorial Videos zu  Themen. Ab und zu veröffentliche ich ein paar Tutorials oder Ergänzungen zum Buch bei Updates (logichilfe.de).
