New Project out now: Sonic Transients - The Rhoen Tapes


Sonic Transients is an ambient project by Axel Stupplich and me, but it's not another Axess/Maxxess-Album.

What's the story about this album?

In winter 2023 we retreated to the Rhön (DE) to record this album. We rented an old house with a view to the Wasserkuppe, the highest mountain in this area. We had all our equipment with us, sat in front of the fireplace and were inspired by the silence and the landscape. We didn't have a concept or half-finished material with us, we wanted to be inspired by the moment for something new. We startet from zero and the music that was created here is far away from what we have done in other projects.The basis for this sound was created on our hikes through the deep snow in wind and fog. Wanna hear it?

Reviews for my CD "Reactivate"


Some fans & friends sent me a few links to German reviews of my CD REACTIVATE. If you have still found reviews, even multilingual ones, send me the links – thank you!

New CD: REACTIVATE – available from February 1st, 2021


I’m proud to present my seventh instrumental solo work. „Reactivate“ ties in seamlessly with his predecessor works and builds a bridge between electronic music and progressive rock. Warm sound collages, powerful rhythm structures and monstrous guitar walls alternate and bring this atmospheric, dense music to the point.

Available from February 1st, 2021 on CD, Bandcamp and on all musicchannels, streamingportals and at the wellknown Onlineshops in the Buy-Section.
