German soundtrack composer Martin Böttcher passed on friday. My old band recorded his Der Ölprinz and Kara Ben Nemsi Effendi main themes, and with Tecumseh Melodie I aimed to understand his unique sound by trying to rebuild some of his trademark devices. Martin Böttcher not only beamed generations of kids into a beautiful adventurous frontier west with his audio magic, but in the early seventies he also was one of first three sailboarders in Germany!
You can now buy various prints of this at artflakes.
This melodramatic piece came together with Stratocaster/echo sound and strings and all kinds of theatrical stuff. This is the first mix in that video. The 2012 mix is the one for sale here and in various download stores. Buy right here in my online store!
You know I started a little series of versions of Exotica classics when I released The Enchanted Sea. So coming soon to an online store near you is the next rendition I recorded – Tabu (or Taboo as it is also known). The recording is mastered, the artwork is ready, the license is paid
