Fantastic festival-tour ended - Now we'll go into studio

The Metalfest Open Air in Czechia, the Big Gun Festival in Moscow, the fantastic show at the JUMF festival in Korea and at the end the Tank mit Frank festival show in Germany was real fun.

Beside that, Victor reached the 3. position at a run of the German Rallycross Championship, played a show at with Go Music at a 50 years Woodstock festival and drove more than 2.000km on highway! Now he need some sleep!

VS Studio - Orchestra arrangements

If you're a fan of handmade music with real instruments and you like orchestral sounds, I can offer you my help! Sometimes recording with an orchestra is faster and cheaper than painfully programming keyboard samples. Just let me know if you need arrangements, recordings or producings with an orchestra just like I did for Rage, Lingua Mortis Orchestra, Almanac, Leaves' Eyes and many more.
