Sitar Study - Raga Jaman

Sitar study as a preparation for Beautiful Shanta on the CD Sunflower.

 inspiration for my electronical music

Sitar Study

Some pictures of my guitar and sitar study as a preparation for a record. However, I didn’t use the sitar or guitar on my records. I only use guitars as a source of inspiration. The only time I used an acoustic instrument myself was on Beautiful Shanta on the CD Sunflower.


Almost all of my music is electronical music made with keyboards, samplers, by me designed soundscapes and sound samplers. Electronical music is only limited by his performer.

Musical sessions

There are no boundaries. For the accoustic instrumental parts of the music I invited some of the best instrumentalists. Who played the composed music and gave it a nice jazzy touch in the improvisation parts. Enjoy.
