2016 was a wonderful year, we had a very good time with each other, a good mood in the company and many nice private moments. The world is going crazy and many people are anxious of the future but first of all I would like to say thank you for the past and even more for the present. We are at the lucky end of the world and we should share a bit more carefully the goods we have keeping a respectful relation with those who are not that lucky now and in the future.
I am very much looking forward to another great meeting on 2017s SUPERBOOTH to also talk about such with you and yours. I hope to meet you all up again soon wishing you a wonderful christmas time and a good start into 2017.
with warmest regards from all of us,

In Mannheim ( where is Mannheim? ) .. the one and only german Pop Akademie was offering workshops and a panel to talk about pop becoming mainstream in past and presence…or not. Introducing all the current forms of making music as we do they had a wonderful event with plenty of visitors. Patrick was there performing a big system together with Daniel Miller and others, see a little report about it on their local news – jump to Minute 10:30, please.

For the upcoming SUPERBOOTH17 we will invite a few school classes from berlin and around to be introduced to synthesizers, their meaning as a real musical instrument, an experimental tool for mathematical physics or installations and arts, perhaps we can offer a simple soldering introduction or i dont know, but .. we will start to think and care about the next generation of creative users of electronic musical instruments.

[..]Wallonien sagt nicht einfach Nein. Vorausgegangen ist ein 18-monatiger umfangreicher Konsultationsprozess des Wallonischen Parlaments mit Wirtschaft, Gewerkschaften, Zivilgesellschaft sowie den europäischen und kanadischen Verhandler/innen. Einen Prozess in dieser Intensität hat es in keinem anderen Land Europas gegeben. Regionalregierungschef Paul Magnette kennt das Abkommen in einer Tiefe wie kaum ein anderer Regierungschef – und lässt sich [..] nicht blenden.

I just uploaded the last one of a wonderful interview series with Bob Williams and Steve Gay, the owners of Analogue Systems, UK. They designed one of the first modular systems in the (nowadaws so prominent) eurorack system more than 20 years ago – „we`ve stood the test of time.“ – what it is still available and quite outstanding. There are plenty of sound samples on the web, I also made another video with a patch example on a bigger system, more to follow soon.
