New Tripsitterklang release: White by Shy Lip.

I'm excited about my third Tripsitterklang release called "White" under my "Shy Lip" moniker. It's been a while since the last one and I'm thrilled about having collaborated with such incredible people.

I want to thank all people that lent me their ears in the process.
Matt Colton was in charge of mastering all tracks and the cover artwork was created by the amazingly talented artist and illustrator Ana Popescu.

The History of Web Design – Book

Books about websites are like monuments about Jazz. They seem somehow outdated, even when they were new and lack the most important element of the medium. In this case: interactivity.

This book promises to be different:

From the founder of the FWA Rob Ford. The book is a comprehensive visual history in  21 chapters for every year since 1998. It includes the best websites and examples of hardware used at the time, and explore how user experience, usability, and technological milestones have influenced the development of the internet we use today.

Photo Wake-Up: 3D Character Animation from a Single Photo

I came across this project from a collaboration of students from the university of Washington and Facebook. Photo Wake-Up is an automated method and application for animating a human subject from a single photo in 3D.

The algorithm doesn’t work so well if the subjects aren’t facing forward. And doesn't work at all if the people have their legs crossed. Find more information about the project here.


It sort of reminds me about the colorisation project of Peter Jackson. He restored and colorized 100 Hours of World War I Footage.

I also wonder about the possibilities of animating old photographs and colorizing them, but also about the dangers of the already known “deep fake” problem.

Sonnox must-have plugins

Sonnox, high quality audio processing plug-ins, are starting their sound plugins summer sale today! I'm covering here my top 3 plugins. I really recommend you go and try the fully functioning 15-day demo here. Sale ends July 10th 2019.

Used in my latest release: Shy Lip - The silent elite.

Oxford Inflator



I know what you are thinking: "I'm always sceptical of plugins that don't show me exactly what they are doing."
I feel you. But this beast is truly something else. The Oxford Inflator V3 isn't just a "make it louder" plugin. It can be used to glue your mix together, or add apparent dynamic range to flat signals. All of which can have positively dramatic effects in your mix. This for me is a must-have plugin, So if you have to choose only one ----> get this one.

Oxford Dynamic Eq

Have ever used Fabfilter Pro · Q3 ? Why should I even bother getting another EQ? The possibilities of the sonnox Oxford Dynamic Eq are quite similar. Main differences are its limitation to 5 bands and no Ultra-steep 'Brickwall' slope setting for LP and HP filters. Above all, the Oxford Dynamic Eq is outstanding and extremely musical. The Oxford Dynamic EQ combines the benefits of dynamic EQ with the Oxford EQ’s Type 3 gain / Q dependency. With practice you can mold the character of the sound in very musical ways. Avoiding the downsides of multi-band dynamic control. It sounds super refined.

Oxford Eq



Al Schmitt doesn't use EQs. I know, good for him. But if you are working in the box, without microphones and high quality hardware a good great EQ is essential. The Sonox Oxford EQ has four completely different sounding EQ types, each with it own character and console style: 1) Clinical EQ similar to the SSL4000 E series 2) Tighter ‘cut’ for removing problem frequencies 3) Classic EQ similar to Neve and SSL G series curves 4) Wide and gentle curves perfect for mastering.

Movie title sequences

I recently watched Jackie Brown, a movie by Quentin Tarantino. The movie title sequence features the song "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack in its entire length. After that I decided to post a list of some of my top movie title sequences. There are really so many good ones, that I might extend the list in the future, but I'm starting with a list of five. As Saul Bass is such a big influence I added an entire video about his work.

Saul Bass -  The Name Behind the Titles

Pink Floyd - The Wall 1982

Quentin Tarantino - Jackie Brown 1997

Martin Scorsese - Casino 1995

Gaspar Noé - Enter the void 2009
