DUE TO COVID-19 WE ARE IN LOCKDOWN WITH CLUBS BEING CLOSED. AS WE STILL WANT TO KEEP UP WITH MUSICIANS AND DJS AROUND, AND FEEL THAT DIGITAL STREAMS ARE IRRETRIEVABLY LACKING THE SOCIAL ENERGY OF LIVE MUSIC EVENTS AND ARE NOT ABLE TO COMPENSATE FOR IT, WE ARE LOOKING FOR CONSOLATION IN WORDS. IN THE END MUSIC IS A SOCIAL PRACTICE. INSIDES FEATURES VOICES FROM VIENNA’S ELECTRONIC MUSIC SCENE, LOOKING TO EXCHANGE IDEAS, FIND MUTUAL INSPIRATION AND EXIT STRATEGIES, ENTERING PERSONAL REALMS.

In our country-home in Waldviertel which I love, but not loving to be stuck.

Birds, plenty of – as i still feed them

Unfortunately my depression

What’s your opinion on live-streams? You see any alternative ways to support the music community?
Not watching live-streams, it’s too exhausting
What are you missing most? What are you afraid of?
Still of sleeplessness and death
What will change you think?
Not sure, but i am afraid nothing will change, we are going through a wave of dark, right wing times, feminism is more or less a just a term, solidarity is gone

The release show of my dear friend Electric Indigo in March
Are you still able to pay your rent?
Yes, and i miss my apartment in Vienna.
