This is my first multitrack video. Please use http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJ28h_ybzgg&fmt=18 for high quality. It is my own arrangement of Happy Birthday. The lowest note is a D2, the highest one is a G4. I recorded only the second half of the song, because I was too lazy to do the rest, right now.

And no: I am not smoking - it was just f***ing cold in the practice room.

The video quality is terrible, because I used the video mode of a digital camera to record it.

This video is an insider joke (only funny for German speaking people, if at all) that I recorded for some friends but decided to upload publicly.

It is the arrangement by Platinum, which I transposed down by about four and a half semi steps, making the bass note of the last chord something between an A#1 and a B1.

This is a multitrack video of the Barbershop tag "To Reach The Unreachable Star", which is an excerpt the Belgium song "La Quête Impossible" by Jacques Brel. Please use www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvcAxhfK8Ec&fmt=18 for high quality.

It is the arrangement by Burt Staffen (1970) and also tag no. 69 of David Wright's classic Barbershop tags compilation. I added a A1 to the final chord, which I barely managed to hit one morning. I did a lot of EQing to that note, because without adjustment it just sounded like noise.

for better quality.

Tube & Berger is the alias of Dance/Electronica producers Arndt Rörig and Marco Vidovic from Germany:

They found my multitrack videos and asked me to record a Jingle for them. I was honored and gladly accepted! They wanted me to sing a slightly modified version of the To Reach The Unreachable Star/Impossible Dream Barbershop tag with the lyrics "Tube and Berger", using a multitrack setup similar to my other videos:

Here is my multitrack version of the original To Reach the Unreachable Star tag for comparison:
