Incouts – Früher war alles anders

Hi y’all,

I recently did a product presentation film for the Austrian startup “Inscouts”. However, this one is a little bit different from what you would expect from a “product presentation”, it’s really a short film, and Manuel Gruber and the gang came up with a smooth story, a great cast, a terrific team and a cool concept for the music. We had a lot of fun, although it was quite a bit of work (which comes naturally when you start without a proper briefing). I recorded guitars, violin and some more stuff with my dad, and Manuel asked his brother and his brother’s friends to help out with the horns. But you may want to check it out yourself, here it is:

Between Bar – A short film by Pauline Flory

Hi y’all,

before the year is over I have to issue a blogpost for 2015 – I realize that nothing has been written yet. There have been two projects this year worth mentioning, one of them is a short film that I am about to finish:

Pauline Flory has made an amazing 5-minute short film called “Between Bar”, where her protagonist enters a bar an tries to become a part of this universe – in vain? There is some alcohol involved as well as a few interesting halluci… visions.

Music has been written and recorded and the sound design ist basically done, so I am in the process of finishing the mix for the film. See it soon (like…2016) at a film festival near you…!

All the best,
Alexander.

PS: Check out a really short, but really interesting making-of here.

Out now: Susan Blake – Promises

Hi y’all,

Susan’s great new song “Promises” is out now. It was arranged and produced by me earlier this year. Susan came up with her own life’s story and wrote a tune that came straight from her heart. Philipp Hochhauser produced and directed an amazing video and the result can be viewed above. We had a good time although the topic is a bit tough, and I hope it shows. Have fun!

All the best,
Alexander.

Wiener Zeitung – commercials for the world’s oldest newspaper

hi there,

i recently finished a few spots (web, and so far also one of them for cinema) for Wiener Zeitung the world’s oldest newspaper.

this paper is now in danger of going bankrupt, since our vice chancellor is considering to cancel the mandatory publishing of laws and other official information in the Wiener Zeitung. Paid content that obviously makes a considerable part of the paper’s revenue.

anyway, just before that suggestion went public, the nice folks at Wiener Zeitung decided to do a little campaign with Neuer Österreichischer Trickfilm, a company that is run by friends of mine. who, naturally, asked me to do sound and music. so here’s the first spot that has been released – enjoy!

all the best,
Alexander.

Cherry Tree – Song by Anches Alexa, produced by Augustin Lehfuss and Alexander Zlamal

Bildschirmfoto 2014-06-23 um 19.32.24

hi y’all,

i recently recorded, mixed and produced a song by anches alexa, called “cherry tree”.

we recorded accordion, guitars, percussions and, of course, vocals at my place as well as at “Gustfuss Records“. I did the percussion arrangement as well as all of the technical stuff, anches sang and augustin had created a tune out of anches’ ideas.

it was a lot of fun and you can download the result from itunes here.

if you don’t like itunes, you may want to check out amazon music, or just listen to the whole tune at soundcloud. have fun!

all the best,
Alexander.
