"Evolution" (Sep 15, 2008) is my first album. The recording sessions lasted from March to August 2008 and I worked on this record during the breaks from touring with my band "Arcadia".

My 2nd solo album is called "Codex Magika" and was produced on Sep 18, 2012.

"The Codex Videos" was released on Sep 18, 2013. Click here to watch some clips!

"The Art of Complications" is out since Jan 10, 2016.

My latest album, "The Silent Watcher", was released on Nov 4, 2018.

How to develop a great Timing.
 
  • You need to have a metronome absolutely, that will become your Best  Friend.
    Always practice with that.
  
When you are practicing a rhythm:

1 – Try to put down the speed (bpms), for example let’s think that you have a funky riff at 120 bpm in 16th notes. Play that at 3 different speed, 60 bpm, 90 bpm and 120 bpm, low, mid, hi speed.
 
2 – For those who want to develop a “Great” timing: let’s think that you have 20 minutes to practice that rhythm; do that at 40 bpm for 5 mins, 60 bpm for 10 minutes, 90 bpm for 3 and 120 bpm for 2 minutes.
 
Do those exercises on all the rhythms you have to write, practice and play with the band or for your album etc..
In less than 3 months, working everyday like this you will get a “perfect” timing at any speed, you will get the so called “inside sync”. Guaranteed, I did that for several years and I still do that.
