Last year, I started performing live under the stage name Axel Auerbach. I played lots of open stages and even two longer concerts. Since I didn't want to alienate everybody with my usual constant genre and language hopping I decided that Axel Auerbach should at least sing in one language. So I've become a "German Sänger-Songschreiber".
I will probably try to write as many songs as possible in German but who knows? What comes out comes out.
I've also programmed a live looper in SuperCollider and have been running it on a small embedded computer. A few weeks ago, a friend of mine put the whole thing into an old Boss ME-5 case. Now it's the coolest gadget I have and it might get featured here as well.
I welcome all sorts of feedback. Don't hold back!
Have a great FAWM 2019, everybody!

No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Oh man, you are messing me up with your new profile picture! Congratulations on your year of performing. What kind of music are you focusing on for Axel Auerbach (if any focus is really necessary)?
Hey, that is fantastic! I don't really know if my ramblings deserve a spot next to Vai and Neville, but it's not my place to criticize. 😁 Thank you for the interesting read.
Hey buddy! I have a stack of sticky notes for this coming FAWM. One of those notes involves you. Drum track at some time during FAWM, if you have time and are willing. Jelly, sir - we must make it!
Hi Axl! I’m ready....you?
