Wrong by Depeche Mode (& Video)

Other listening materials include Lady Gaga, Turkish Turbo Folk Music, from the country corner: Dixie Chicks and Tanya Tucker, and from the classics: Marianne Faithfull, Jeff Mills, Leonard Cohen, NIN, Stereo Mcs, Madonna, Lucio Dalla, Peter Tosh, Public Enemy, Robbie Williams, Sugababes, System of a Down, The Verve, Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Edith Piaf, Eminem, Falco, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Gossip, Guns N Roses, INXS, Juanes. Our assistant Wendy is really deeply involved in Techno and since his arrival we listen a lot of it at the studio, so there we go again, i am feeling like 20 years ago at an illegal party, an underground club or a huge rave somewhere in the outskirts of Rotterdam.


The most amazing cinematic experience was with my daugther Billie-Ada watching the Disney flick „G-Force“ – 3 guinea pigs saving the world, not very funny BUT in 3D. The technology is so far advanced that i suggest to everybody to go for a test-view, it’s mindfucking and so cool; i couldn’t follow any story for the first 20 minutes, i was absorbed by the visual power and i can now see the application of 3D not only for movies but for art installations.
