about

How Sigmar Polke inspired me to start Vanishing Pictures you can read in the linear notes of the first album.
The line-up of Vanishing Pictures changed all the time and it could grow from a duo to a big band.
In the studio I recorded every musician separately, using my own part as a basis to improvise on. The musicians never heard the music before recording, only very rarely more then one take was recorded and I did hardly any editing.
For concerts I always created a different line-up. Sometimes the music was a 100 % improvised, at other times I created a sort of lead sheet using colours and drawings.
I have annoted each track so you find more details there.
