The Lab

A Room For Unlimited Creativity

This is The Lab

I built this place with Sven Kosakowski, my brother from another mother. Our vision was a great sounding, always ready recording laboratory for experimental, improvised music. We are so happy that after more than half a year of planning and building we finalised it and are ready to record.


In the following, please find some pictures of the room, the gear we packed inside, and Sven and me playing. We are constantly adding and changing things, so this room is a work in progress, just as the music we make. Stay tuned for new releases…

The Lab Manifest

Create, innovate, collaborate, share.

Be yourself and let the music flow. Challenge yourself and create the unknown. Try to avoid musical habits. Improve yourself and play something new. Take risks, be prepared to fail, but always turn the mistake into something beautiful.

Make quick decisions. If something gets boring stop it or change it. Think process, not product. Give something away and tell a good story. Ignore the rules, but never play a note without a purpose. Play what you like to hear.

Be nice. Love. We are one.

Let’s Create Something Together

Please support The Lab

All of these projects and recordings are made without the usual rules of the music business. It is not about money and fame; it is about the moment, the music and the art. With this project, we don’t want to enter the charts but want to offer musicians a platform to create something far away from rules and expectations. The Lab wants to provide artistic freedom in the true meaning of these words.
Therefore it would be great if you help us with this project. Any help is much appreciated.
