Dear music lovers,
I wish you a happy Monday morning!
1982 I founded DD-Studio, a record studio for music and advertising production, with my partner keyboarder Manfred Schiffinger. From 1987 the studio was renamed to “sounDDesign” studio. Schiffinger and I composed and produced more than 2.000 advertising jingles, film songs and music records from 1982 until 2001. Many of them with the Austrian singer with Australian roots Sandra Pires who was an exceptional talent discovered by sounDDesign in Helmuth Fink´s Papa´s Tapas – Atrium – Zugabe below the studio.. Later we also started to work with Sandra´s younger sister Orieta Pires.
1997 I had the idea of a new song and I wrote the lyrics by myself. Schiffinger and I recorded the song with Orieta and Christian Pogats, well known as the cook “Sebastian” in the TV series “Schlosshotel Orth”. I presented the track to Sony Music and they offered us a contract for one album – release all over Europe – and a budget of 1 million Austrian Schilling. But at the meeting which has been scheuled to sign the contract, Orieta suddenly refused to sign because the contract was exclusive. She told Sony the story that she and her manager Ziggy Müller found better opportunities in Germany. Later she never could get any record contract and at the end had to leave Austria to go back to Australia.
Here´s “I love you” with Orieta Pires and Christian Pogats.
Yesterday we heard songs of the exceptional artist Seaned O´Connor. She has an unmistakable style to let her voice tilt into the overtones. But she didn´t invent this vocal technique. Few years before I heard it the first time in a song performed by Sam Brown.
Not very much later the technique was copied by many vocal artists. Please listen to Sam Brown´s song “Stop”.
