hello folks,
a merry christmas to all of you :-)
this site is in a very early state, not much content yet.
i promise to add more sections soon.

currently i'm working on several projects together with my
band-mates from drøn. one of these projects is a collaboration
with japan-based artist frank henville.

benjamin muendoerfer's track "technologie" is now online as
free mp3 release. also included is my experimental interpretation
"reagrain", which is made entirely with granular synthesis.
here is the link.
