A while ago I thought about having my Spotify playlists streamed to my Playstation 3. My sound system is connected to that device, placed in my living room, so I needed to find a way to stream the whole sound output (also called “Stereo Mix”) from my Mac to the PS3. In this article I will explain how you can stream any sound from your Mac, for example Spotify, to any local device using WLAN, in this case my Playstation 3.

Schema.org provides you a good way to optimize your website for search engines. SEO surely means much more than that, but the usage of Schema.org will improve your visibility to Google & Co. a lot. Have you ever, for example, checked out movie search results at a website like IMDB.com or Wikipedia.org? They will mostly show you additional information for that particular movie, such as a trailer link, a link to release dates, maybe user ratings for this movie (check out the tiny yellow stars there!) and sometimes information about the actors, the director and much more, depending on your search query – and the website’s markup with Schema.org. So Google is not that intelligent that they know what the website is about – you gotta ensure this yourself by adding Schema.org microdata. While it does not directly improve your website’s rankings, the search results for your page will certainly look more appealing to users since additional information will be included.

Today I’d like to share my top ten of movie score pieces. Most of them are pretty beautiful, romantic themes, to relax, to think, to dream. At the bottom of this post, you will find a Spotify playlist which contains all the ten tracks included.
1. Elevator Beat (Nancy Wilson)
The most wonderful theme for a wonderful movie (“Vanilla Sky”). Elevator Beat contains so much melancholia that it always gives me a feeling where I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. While it is rather sad music, it still emphasizes some hope – beautiful.
2. La Valse d’Amélie (Yann Tiersen)
If you haven’t seen the movie “Amélie” yet, do it as soon as you can. To me, there is no other movie as interesting like this, and the music is great aswell. La valse d’Amélie is my favourite piece from the score, and, while there are an orchestral and another third version of this track, I prefer the piano version.
I will soon release a new music video, another one for a song by my sister Christina Sophie. It’s called Island and it appears on her new album Secret Sinner to which you can listen below. Be excited as the music video will feature scenes shot in Thailand where we travelled in March this year. You might wanna check out the song first (it’s track 7)!
A while ago I saw another very exciting tutorial on VideoCopilot.net where they showed us how to create a great-looking train explosion. As part of this tutorial, they introduced the usage of Mocha for After Effects. In this article I will conclude this for those who are especially interested in this kind of stuff or those who don’t want to watch the whole video (although I encourage you to do so). As an addition to that VideoCopilot tutorial, they offered a new After Effects presets file there which easily allows dynamic tracking in connection with Mocha. However, if you’re using a translated version of After Effects, you might have issues using it – how to fix these will be explained in the last paragraph of this article.

For today, I simply want to share something with you. But it’s not just something, to me it certainly is the most brilliant video masterpiece on the whole Internet. I mean the Internet is huge and I surely don’t know everything, but this is the best thing I’ve ever seen.
It’s here, the new music video for Christina Sophie’s song “A Quarter To 3”. I also composed and produced the music of the song you are hearing there, while Christina Sophie wrote the lyrics and performed it wonderfully.
Also, I am happy to announce that her first album (aswell my first album as a producer) will be out on April 12 this year. So it’s only about three more weeks! 🙂 But for now, I hope you enjoy the clip!
Old memories… in September 2009 me and my friend Lars-Jannik decided to make that movie about a young guy collecting greenery. Some kind of simple-minded person who, nonetheless, found himself a vocation and, nonetheless, wants a person to be loved by – this is “Leaves and Love”.
I’m kinda sad we had this beautiful idea when we weren’t technically ready for it (as you will see). But, nonetheless, I still like this piece of short movie, and I consider it the best one I created so far, ignoring the technical aspects of it. To me, this movie means so much, and this is why I gave my website its name. So maybe you get my feelings about it, maybe you don’t – anyways, I would be glad if you took five minutes of your time to check it out. Thank you!
