Public compilation: Encounters EP

The "latest greatest" of my production work is the Encounters EP with 4 tracks. This has been my most ambitious (and most expensive per track) production project so far, and I'm very happy with the end result(s). Unlike my more electronic arrangements, this EP features gifted guest musicians: Gidi on drums, Natasha on cello and my producer Enrico plays some dope guitars on most tracks. It turned out more raw, edgy and I like the human feel of it. Here's some snippets of all four tracks. They should give you a first impression of the general sound and an idea of the variety of styles and moods. Unfortunately it cannot transport the whole dramaturgy of each track and the EP as a whole. But hey- it's a start.

If you want more: feel free to enter - the Encounters EP is the BIG Reward for all contributing guests in February 2024.

Welcome gift II - Another free track - "3000 things"

Here's another track of mine with a fair amount of "let's get something started"-vibes. And then it gives you another hint of my style. The track has a lot of electronics in it, some Pop appeal as well, but also a couple of twists and turns in the arrangement and the songwriting. You need for sure a longer attention span than todays standard 15 seconds... Have fun. And maybe groove and dance a bit. Ulrich

Welcome track I - German lyrics - "2 + 2 = 4"

Welcome to this page - and here's a free track to get you started. What is my musical project KAON actual all about? Most of the time I sing in English, sometimes I use German lyrics, and sometimes I mix the two languages. My aim is to have a little dramaturgy in each track - convey a certain mood or tell a little story.

For this track I had the music composed first (my regular order), and I asked two people to write lyrics (in English or French). And when this wasn't happening, finally creativity hit my with these German lyrics. To me it captures the energy of a fresh and hopeful new beginning - so I thought it is a nice welcome gift to all my subscribers and people stopping buy to check me out. Enjoy.

G.A.S. relief - (gear acqusition syndrome) - some pocket money for gear upgrades and maintenance

  • at least 10,00 € (one-time only)
  • approx. $10.82

It's well known amongst musicians. "I need this new guitar." - "Hey, this XYZ compressor sounds awesome." - "Here's the ultimative delay plugin." etc. etc.

Luckily, I'm well equipped with analog and digital gear, but every once in a while I upgrade existing platforms, collections or plugins or dare to buy some additional gear/software.

If you want to add some "pocket money" to do so, I might finally be able to get me that killer Atari ST computer with 4 MB RAM ;-)

Encounters EP - 24 bit HD quality

  • 15,00 € (one-time only)
  • approx. $16.23

You will get access to the "latest, greatest" release of Feb 2024. The 4 tracks "Encounters EP" as HD 24 bit files.


This is by far my most ambitious project, recording not at home but in the "Famous Gold Watch" studio in Berlin, and hiring some guest musicians as well. The EP is less electronical, has a bit of an organic, edgy sound.


I still can remember times when it was a no-brainer to go to the record store and buy the latest release of an artist you liked, drag it home and play it for days and weeks in bliss. So consider supporting my project with a "fair trade" deal and drag home your virtual copy of my work in the best available sound quality.

Mastering a track - sponsorship

  • 50,00 € (one-time only)
  • approx. $54.10

Mastering is the art and craft of finalising a finished mix and make it sound great on all sorts of listening devices. I love to have Pete Maher (https://www.petemaher.com/) as my mastering engineer. He's worked with big names in the industry (e.g. U2, Depeche Mode, Pixies)), but he still has a heart and affordable rates for unsigned artists. If you want to support my production work directly, you can pick this option and you'll know where your money goes.

Next track that could use some final polishing is that "gift for everyone": 2+2=4 - whenever someone goes for a mastering reward, then he can get mentioned as a sponsor, or stay anonymous - whatever is preferred.


Bonus: get immediate access to the Encounters EP here on getnext.

Sponsorship - production budget

  • at least 100,00 € (one-time only)
  • approx. $108.21

I like hiring some pros and experts to work with me on my music. Like everyone, those people have rents and bills to pay, and that can't be done by today's streaming royalty peanuts.

If you have the possibilities to contribute financially, I'd appreciate it very much.

The money will be directly allocated to new production projects, and if you wish you can learn which track and which tasks the money is used for. I'm also happy to name you as a sponsor if that's what you want.


To give you an idea: I've worked with producers so far who charge around 500 EUR per song for production work and mixing.
