No The Big Crash VR at Rencontres Internationales this year

Unfortunately the showing of The Big Crash VR at the Rencontres Internationales event at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt in Berlin which opens tonight, wont happen. The organisers dropped the whole VR program and postponed it to 2022, a wise decision which I support. Putting a VR headset on random peoples faces is not a good idea in a pandemic, especially with all the hideous mutations. 

Thats why I decided also to not show it in The Big Crash exhibition at XM3 in Aalborg, safety for the audience first!
For home consumption you can still check out the multiuser version on Mozilla Hubs which works in the browser on desktop or all VR headsets.

30 years Notstandskomitee

30 years ago a bunch of old communistic politicians in Russia tried a coup and failed to establish their emergency committee which is in German called Notstandskomitee. In that time I recorded several solo tracks besides my work with Das Kombinat and was searching of a possible / impossible project name when I was reading about it on a foldable medium we called newspaper back then. The word sticked.On 2. September I am going to perform an outdoor concert in Aalborg, Denmark, to celebrate the anniversary of my soloproject with new tracks and visuals created with a custom software I am working on right now.
