I was invited to be part of derStandard Corona stage in lockdown. So I sat down to figure out how to produce a good sounding live video in my little home studio, with two mobile phone cameras – one hanging from my microphone with two rubber bands – and – once like madonna – a new outfit for every song:-)
I made it a mix out of existing tunes related to lockdown in some way and new tunes. like “Zerrlegungsbeauty(track 2) and Maultrommelblues(track 6), which are new pieces.
It was quite a journey and many many takes of each tune until it felt ok to send the audio mix and the two videos to the standard video crew who put it all together.
The journey to making this video was intense and incredible.
86/60 had the splendid idea to produce a life Video for this song. So we started to look for a location. Then the idea of playing a small living room concert morphed into: every single guest will be a camerawoman and cameraman.
The whole idea was planned out, we started asking film and music aficionados to join in. The a whole classroom was rearranged, the chalkboard was designed by Oliver Schöndorfer, professional lighting installed and placed by Nino Pfaffenbichler, and the whole setting set up by Michael Holzer.
Then the 30 people of the team where given a few hints of how to start filming and how to end. Everything else was up to them.
I played three takes of tiger that where filmed. Masses of Data was transferred to local computers and afterwards the buffet was transferred into the stomaches of the film crew.
Playing this song live for this wonderful camera team of 33 music and film aficionados was superb. MANY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU, best team ever!
Please enjoy this Video, forward it to a friends and come out to see me play live in a town nearby.

Silence is the first single of my upcoming album Smiling Eye(release date: march 2nd 2018 with a live how at Radiokulturhaus). Somehow it has always been here and important for the growth of the album. Its simplicity, the topic of silence itself, the very reduced ingredients.
My friends from 86/60 loved it also, and it stayed in heir heads so much, they wanted to do a video to it. I was totally in for it ofcourse !
So the ideas developed, a plan was made, the search for a room began, and also the search for a transparent fabric that fit our needs. The little revolving stage and lots of light, camera equipment, a special produced background, and a shooting plan.
The day of the shooting was a warm summery, and after a day of setting up the room we began with the most difficult shot – do film the falling of the “curtain”. After that, everything else seemed easy.
….The splendid team of gifted artists is:
Nino Pfaffenbichler (camera)
Michael Holzer (director und editor)
8660 (produktion, grafics & images)
The song itself was mastered and mixed by Oliver Brunbauer at Feedback Studio 2
Titi LaFlora did a supervise support job in feeding us like the kings and Kristina Bangert supported me in guiding me through my acting.
The fabulous klingt.org server of Dieb13, which also hosts my site, celebrates its birthday with an evening of concerts of muisicians and band from the klingt.org server. Meanwhile this has developed into a little festival with lots of audience, many concerts and is a musical highlight every year in Vienna.
So this little excerpt was filmed, when klingt.org became 12 years old. Filmed by Susanne Luschin, who also did a an Okto TV docu about klingt.org.
I wanted to do a music video by my own, when the album release of „shoot me“ came closer. I had been photographing in series for quite a while, specialicing in intersections of cities I was playing in on tour.
„leave“ is a mix of these and other serial photographies I did over the years in cities like Mexico, Tokyo, Vienna and others. No editing on the photos was done.

lokai was invited by “Kunstradio” to do a special 45 Minute long programm.
The piece should be played live in front of an audience, and also be broadcasted live through the web as part of the EBU series. We developed a very special Version of our program „transition“(Thrill Jockey records), which deals and incorperates writings by Charles Darwin. In one of them he describes the joy of riding a huge turtle on a beach. This picture really inspired us, and we imagined the most wild rides….and so the title for this was clear. Performance specialist and speaker Anat Stainberg was a great joy to work with and a wonderful performer.

This is a video by Verena Brückner. It was shot totally analog like. We had three little cameras filming each on a little stand simultaneously above of each other. I played this live in my Studio. Behind me you see as a „video background“ our unused rest of our kitchen floor.
This was filmed in 2007, but the render or upload quality was bad, and so I reloaded it in 2011.
