    New composition for string quartet out on all platforms and soon on vinyl!

    Last summer I devoted some time to imagining how to translate the reflections and different faces of a prism into music. This was a serious challenge I must say. The outcome of these explorations is available on all platforms and in spring there will be a vinyl. Thanks to the friends of the Goldmund Quartet for the commission and their talent and Neue Meister for the ongoing support.

    The other good news is that in a couple of weeks Prismatica will be released on vinyl!

    Collaboration with Magnificent Matter

    Pascal is happy to announce a brand new collaboration with Magnificent Matter. Magnificent Matter is a Berlin based collective creating abstract and cosmic worlds under the lense of a microscope. Their explorations dive deeply into the realms created by nature itself, discovering the recurring patterns our micro and macrocosmic reality is constructed of. Ranging from Live Vj Sessions, over audiovisual installations up to fine art prints, they are always on the look for a more authentic experience that represent and honor the beauty of our planet and beyond.
    Beside creating together with Pascal a complete set of immersive visuals for Pascal's live performances, Magnificent Matter also directed the Official Music Video and the cover artwork for Pascal's latest single By This River by Brian Eno.
