Count Hemmendorff - Castle Hemmendorff Audio Tour

May 14, 2010

I started this music project back in like… 2004? 2002? Noone knows.
It has finally found the perfect label however, and is now released.

Join us on this unguided Audio Tour of Castle Hemmendorff. You will visit the Great Hall, where the Count hosts the monthly midnight ball for the ghosts of the Castle and unfortunate bypassers, and the Laboratory, where the Count spends much of his sleepless nights, doing questionable experiments to achieve immortality and produce mindaltering elixirs, as well as the Secret Garden, home of the mutant truffle finding poodles, self-luminous albino owls as well as many other more or less succesful experiments.

The record is out now on the one and only Danny Wolfers own Strange Life records. A great honor.

Two tracks from the record.

MIXSET: Obsolete Love Songs

April 20, 2010

A collection of arguable love songs, this is slow dancing for the depraved. Some true gems like Billy Swan-Don’t be cruel and Katrina’s club from the Vamp soundtrack.
Check the comments for full tracklist.

MIXSET: White Funk

September 15, 2008

A 38 minute celebration of another of my musical obsessions: the sound of early 80’s new wave/synth/postpunk.
Featuring the vampire freakout of Douglas Bregger, the lyrical genius of Arvid Tuba and the beautifully frantic hihats of Our Daughters Wedding. And more. AND MORE!
All hits.

Coming up next: Black funk.

MIXSET: Sunny Day Obscurities

April 16, 2007

The Count is feeling splendid! Mixing up a mix for sunny springdays in the grounds of Castle Hemmendorff. A pretty varied selection of jolly tunes, much french and italian library but also some other stuff, ranging in time from the 30’s Ink Spots to La Düsseldorff 1981.

29 minutes of sunny sounds. Carefully selected and poorly mixed.

MIXSET: Paranoia

October 11, 2006

The Count is feeling a bit apprehensive. Probably with good reasons. Lurking in dark alleys. Scheming.

Moody, neurotic tunes, spanning over a wide range of genres. From Tom Waits to dark warriordisco to some uneasy chitown ghetto trax. The centerpiece is the incredible Squadro Blanco - The night must fall.
