Spaceport – New album (CD / Digital)



Martin Stürtzer’s new album ‘Spaceport’ features an hour of music filled with synthesizer sequences, analog noises, lush pads and cosmic echoes. The seven tracks were recorded during the “home concert” live series as well as during studio production sessions. The first CD release after 2022s ‘Relativity’ comes in a nice Digipack with inside out print.

Home Concert 59

Welcome to the 59th edition of my Home Concert series. In this set I present five new Ambient tracks. I used a few instruments, which I had not in my studio for a while. Like the Moogerfooger Ringmodulator, the Modular system and the Waldorf Microwave 1 (in the rack off screen). Music was arranged in Bitwig using midi for the hardware synths and also a few software instruments. My main controller is the Midi Fighter Twister with a script for Bitwig.

Live concert in Wuppertal, 22.03.2024

I am delighted to announce a live concert in Wuppertal on march 22nd. Taking place at Zentrum Emmaus, which also happens to be my new church workplace since last year. I am going to play two sets: starting the night with sequencer action and maybe some Dub Ambient tunes. Then we will have a break, followed by a Space Ambient / Drone set. Capacity is limited, presale is online now.

Home Concert 58

Welcome to the first home concert of the new year. For this liveset I recorded five new tracks in between Ambient and Downtempo music. The Elektrons are back in business and taking care of the drums, some sequences and rhythmic patterns. Synthesizer sounds are mostly from my hardware synths, controlled via Midi by Bitwig.

The music of this Home Concert will be released on Bandcamp and the streaming services on the evening of Sunday, 7th.

My Beethoven recordings

I want to share the recordings of two piano sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven with you, which I recorded at home this month. There might be hundreds of better recordings out there, but at least you can find out, how I play them.

Ludwig van Beethoven
op. 13 “Pathétique”

1. Satz – Grave/Allegro di molto e con brio

2. Satz – Adagio cantabile

3. Satz – Rondo Allegro

Ludwig van Beethoven
op. 31 Nr. 2 “Der Sturm”

1. Satz – Largo/Allegro

2. Satz – Adagio

3. Satz – Allegretto

Home Concert 57

Welcome to the 57th edition of my home concert series. This set features tracks from my new Dub Ambient EP “Aquatic Cosmos”, as well as two unreleased tracks. As you can see from my worried facial expression this set was very complex to arrange, while Ableton struggled handling the 41 midi and instrument tracks. This is my last liveset in 2023, thank you very much for your support!

New EP: Aquatic Cosmos


“Aquatic Cosmos” is a four track EP. While I usually don’t use drums in my Ambient music, this EP consists of four tracks, which are build around subtle rhythmic patterns. The title track was recorded live during my Ambient Night 14 stream, and the other three tracks are mixes, that I have been working in this year, without releasing them. I hope that you enjoy this “chill” version of Martin Stürtzer!

Home Concert 56

Yesterday I released the 56th edition of my Home Concert series.

Part one is a new version of a track that I first recorded with the Jupiter 8 inspired synth by Black Corporation.

Part two starts with atmospheric pads, followed by a lot of sequences. I used pretty much all of my synths to record that track. Since I got the Kenton Midi interface for my Juno60 I can finally use it for programmed sounds!

Part three starts with a few sequences from the TAL-J-8 and I play a solo lead sound which I programmed to mimic a guitar. I use the Push3 controller to dynamically play the patch.

Part four closes the set with a 20 minutes long ambient piece in which most of the sounds are played live on the keyboards.

Home Concert 55

What started as a spontaneous idea a few years ago became a tradition that I am looking forward to a lot: My three hours long birthday session! Most of the music will be improvised and recorded during the stream. I prepared some sounds and sequences but the idea is to leave enough space for ideas.

Album Release “Circular Oscillations”


“Circular Oscillations” is the second album by Martin Stürtzer, recorded with the concept of a vinyl release in mind. Each of the six tracks features Stürtzer’s unique style of sequencing analog synthesizers, along with atmospheric pads and drones. Both formats (vinyl and digital) have received their own mastering to address the individual requirements of each medium and ensure the best listening experience.
