The Hans Connection
He was slow to pull the trigger, but he finally did it! After many years of waiting, I can finally introduce my friend Hans-Jörg Scheffler on myNoise. Our meeting goes back to the time when we both were working as sound designers for Roland Corporation Japan in the late nineties. Hans is a mad sound designer, very prolific but a tad messy at times. With Hans, you never know what hidden surprises await. His patchnames for example: "Homopathetic" to refer to the sound of a horrible-sounding male choir patch and "Horny Sax" for a brass section. That's Hans! And we always need someone like Hans to keep a hardworking team in a good mood.
Among Hans's varied talents, there is one that this sound generator illustrates so well – Hans has the gift of gathering people together. The Hans connection is real and works like a charm among musicians. He managed during lockdown to involve 70 of his musical friends in his Cabin Fever project, including Deep Forest and Jacob Collier! For the generator 'Hands of Time,' Hans invited two of his buddies to play along – the talented Hans-Peter Salentin on the flugelhorn and the skilled fretless bass player Manfred Miketta. Thanks for joining in!
