HG SCHMITZ - FOREVERMORE, 2018 Exactly 5 years ago on the 11th of November 2013 my sweetheart Hilde and I became a couple. So it is our 5th anniversary we are celebrating today. And tomorrow on the 12th of November is Hilde's birthday. My dear Snuff, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU !! I don't wanna miss any single second of the time we are together now. Knowing and loving you is the best time of my life. It was a hard period for us. Everytime when I came over to Norway I had to leave you again and it still hasn't changed. But I don't give up hope and stay optimistic. We are going to make it, Baby. This song I wrote and recorded in 2016. It got never released before. The footage of the video shows Hilde's hometown Lillehammer in Norway. She lives in a paradise and I want to be there soon - forevermore. I LOVE YOU MY DEAR !!!

HG SCHMITZ - NO-WAY-MELODY OF 2018 Inspired by the Genesis song 'Broadway Melody Of 1974' from the album 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway'. Actually I'm not a friend of doing cover versions. And what I did here is not really a cover. I always thought that the main theme of this song, which is so brilliantly thought out, would also be a great basement for adding some variations. So I tried to make it my own and played a little around. The animations in the video are excerpts from the original live projections of 'The Lamb' concerts people saw in the background of the stage during the shows. I discovered this footage on Vimeo and used it for strictly non-commercial purposes. HG, 10 / 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

TYLER SELPH - HG SCHMITZ I'M SO STUPID, 2018 The instrumental of this song got originally recorded in 2017. I'd been in search for a male vocalist since a longer time and after TYLER SELPH did a tremendous great job on one of my latest posts (Dead On Time) I asked him if he likes to participate and join me on this tune here. To my joy he agreed. Tyler started writing the lyrics. Actually, the instrumental had an other title as the song is called now. We changed it because Tyler created a story about a man who got betrayed and left by his girlfriend and the content of this story had absolutely no connection to the title I used first. Although the man's friends warned him not to trust this woman he fell in love and got terribly disappointed by her. Finally he realized how stupid he has been starting a relation to her. His heart got broken and his ego destroyed. So our song became an anti-love song and what I adore the most on Tyler's lyrics and words is the way how he put the negative atmosphere and mood of a broken love into his vocal performance. From my point of view I'm feeling absolutely satisfied with the final results. Tyler's work has lifted up our hard rock song to a higher level. He's a blessed and highly talented singer artist with huge versatility. This project will definitely not be our last collaboration. The video got taken from Vimeo for strictly non-commercial purposes.

HARRY THOMPSON - KAI LIEBERT - CJ BERRY - KJELL JOHANSSON - HG SCHMITZ - BLIND FLIGHT, 2016 Somehow this video got lost on my YOU TUBE channel and because of that it also wasn't available on FANDALISM anymore. I knew I had saved it on one of my hard disks somewhere but couldn't find it. Now I rediscovered it and thought it would be worth a re-post. BLIND FLIGHT is one of the most extraordinary projects I'd ever been involved to. 5 musicians from 4 different countries came together for creating some music. As for me I can say that this collaboration is one of the highlights in my personal history of making music.

TEDD VAN WAGNER - HG SCHMITZ MISTAKE, 2018 A short story about autism. The basics of this tune got recorded and programmed in 2010 and 2011. For years it had just been a not fixed idea but I worked on it from time to time. The concept became clearer and clearer when I discovered a video which captured me. It is a short film about an autistic person that gets thrown off the track by just a tiny little mistake in his daily routine. I found it in 2016 and one year later I asked Tedd if he would like to join me on this project. He agreed. Tedd is always a contact person when you try to touch some unusual stuff. The idea was to create a progressive and psychedelic piece of music based on a reggae groove and that's like a house with opened doors for Tedd. He sent me his adds in March 2018. It took a little time to insert his instrument tracks to the project. The final results are talking for itself. We both know that this kind of music isn't for everybody's ears. It needs to get used to. But exactly that was the challenge. The exercise was to put some experimental ideas to a groove of traditional reggae music. So please listen to what we have done.

MARK TAYLOR - HG SCHMITZ MASK OF EMOTIONS (Extended Band Version) This is the very first collaboration MARK TAYLOR and I have ever done. Let me tell you some background details of how we came together. Around 3 weeks ago I listened to an acoustic guitar piece from Mark and loved if from the first second. I asked him if he would give me his permission for working on the sound because the recording was a little quiet. He agreed and so I gave it a try. I couldn't resist playing a little pad melody to the song and when I sent it to Mark he liked it very much. Additionally I told him that this tune has a huge potential for doing a band version on the basement of his original recording. Mark gave me his okay and so I started creating some drums and bass programmings. The original song was a little short for a band version. So I extended the song and Mark's video from 2.20 to 3.42 minutes. In my comment to his post on Fanda I told him that I think the song sounds very sweet and almost cuddly. I wanted to keep this emotion when I added my instruments and from my point of view the final results are confirming my intentions. Dear Mark, I'm very happy about our first common music work. As I told you before I envy you for your skills in acoustic guitar pickings - something I always neglected to learn. This little acoustic piece you recorded sounds so inconspicuous but in real it is a great composition. Thank you so very much for giving me the chance of becoming a part of it.

MELVIN DONOVAN - HG SCHMITZ GENTLE GOING, 2011 / 2018 In April 2018 I sent the instrumental of this tune, which got originally written and recorded in 2011, to Melvin and asked him for writing some lyrics and singing to it. Parallelly, I'd been working with my cohabitee Hilde on our pop rock opera. The opera had absolute priority and so 'GENTLE GOING' fell into the background. In the past weeks we started working on the song again and finally we got it made. I knew from the beginning that Melvin is the perfect cast for this kind of music. It is a love ballad based on acoustic guitar and an arrangement for drums, bass, electric guitar and strings. This simply is Melvin's bag. He never disappoints me and relating to a music style like this he always delivers exactly what I'm wishing for. So he did here. The lyrics of the tune are on the video running along with Melvin's vocal. Please enjoy watching and listening, Ladies & Gentlemen.

HG SCHMITZ - TALKING BULLSHIT, 2009 / 2018 This song originally emerged in 2009 from the idea of making a song about people who like to rant. You find cants everywhere - in lyrics of very famous songs, politicians spitting them out endlessly, especially in TV shows and well known movies you'll find them, and even you and myself are using them thoughtlessly. If you'll take a concerted look to that subject you will discover a lot of statements here and there which are completely empty of sense and value. We all aren't free from TALKING BULLSHIT sometimes. The crazy thing about it is that we almost need these words of 'higher wisdom' for getting our validations in daily life, even if they are totally unnecessary and self-evident. TALKING BULLSHIT is an instrumental hard rock song. I did a first remaster in 2012 but haven't felt completely contented with the drum line. So I progammed a new one and improved the sound of all separate instrument tracks. There are no keys or synths used, just the drums and bass programmings and the varying guitars I played. In the video I have used words I created spontaneously, which you can't find in any language all over the globe. Just trying to make you understand ironically, how much useless verbal stuff we produce. Enough of all that BLAH BLAH now ! Please enjoy watching and listening.

HG SCHMITZ - BIG BLAST, 2011 / 2018 This is another harder rock song from 2011 I have remastered in the past few weeks. The biggest blast of all times got caused by the nuclear bomb. The video shows how naive the American military handled the first tests they did after the invention of that super weappon. From today's point of view it is unbelievable how careless and inconsiderate the responsible persons acted at that time. Please enjoy your listen everybody.

STRAIGHT WAY TO HELL, 2013 / 2018 I'm not very experienced in playing and recording metal but exactly this fact was the challenge for me here. I have worked in almost all kinds of styles and genres so far but there are just a few, maybe 2 or 3 tracks, you can call metal. Actually, it isn't my prefered style of music but in my opinion a musician should have done it once in his life. I realized this project all over the year 2013. Haven't worked on it constantly but now and then. Normally the programming of the drums is one of the easier exercises but this drum line almost drove me insane. It was very difficult to give the kit the sound of a real metal kit and the double kicks were very hard to program and mix. The song contains no keys or synths. Just used to play a rhythm lead and a solo lead guitar in addition to the drums and bass programmings. You can call me a bloody beginner in case of metal music but for that I'm quite satisfied with the results. This one is going at full throttle !!! Please enjoy your listen, everybody.

HG SCHMITZ - RAT POISON, 2011 / 2018 This is another remastered song which got originally recorded and arranged in 2011. I had to program a completely new drum line cause the original one from 2011 wasn't usable. RAT POISON is a hard rock track that belongs more into the category of 'melodic hard rock' than to the metal genre. The video material I found on Vimeo and used it as always for strictly non-commercial purposes. The problem was that the footage of the main story had just a length of 1 minute. Those little rat clips had only a few seconds. So the exercise was to cut the scenes into pieces, stretching and editing them and using those fragments in a way which filled up the entire tune. RAT POISON had once been on Fandalism as an audio upload from Soundcloud but I deleted it a long time ago. The sound quality (especially of the original drum programming) was not to compare with the remastered version you will hear now. I'm feeling quite confident with the final results. Anyway, the audio player of You Tube is one of the worst I know. It sucks a lot of the original audio quality you'd been working for, intensively. The cover photo got shot by my sweetheart Hilde at a subway station in Oslo, Norway. I just edited and mirrored it, horizontally, and put the two halfs together to one pic.

HG SCHMITZ - SIZE REALLY MATTERS, 2011 / 2018 There was no video, the sound quality was very bad, the original arrangements were horrible but the composition itself had huge potential. So what to do ? I started reworking that tune at the beginning of August 2018. There had been lots of tracks left I hadn't used for the original version from 2011. So I began sighting those unused tracks and I found a couple of recordings which I finally added to the new arrangement. If I look retrospectively at this project I can't explain to myself why I haven't worked with those tracks from the beginning. I can't describe what kind of style I should mention in case of this song. There are elements of fusion, rock and also pop music. The most difficult part of the tune was the drum programming. Thinking back to 2011 I must have had a lot of time for doing that work. I'd been totally surprised about myself when I listened to the programmings for the very first time after more than 7 years. Sometimes you do things you don't even know how to appreciate right. Now I do. The video I found after a long time of searching on Vimeo. I used it for strictly non-commercial purposes.

HG SCHMITZ - DEAD ON TIME, 2016 / 2018 This is an instrumental funk rock song from 2016 which never got released before. I'd been looking for a video since a long time and finally found it on Vimeo. I used it for strictly non-commercial purposes. The footage shows the story of a workaholic who's living for his job only. He's missing the good sides of life, falls into depressions because of too much stress and in the end it kills him. Maybe some of the viewers may think this stuff is way too morbid or even ghoulish. I don't think so. In terms of getting devoured by your job and daily resposibilities, what is making you sick, the video comes to the point. HG, 2016 - 08 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

DANNY ROFFE - HG SCHMITZ - STAY IN BED TODAY, 2018 After more than 2 years Danny and I decided to work on a common song again. In April 2018 I sent him an instrumental and asked him for his participation. Fortunately he agreed and so we started to work on the project. Danny is one of the musicians and guitarists I'm looking up to. Whatever he touches is becoming gold. In case of this tune I wanted Danny to join me because of his affinity for floyd-ish sounding guitar arrangements, which he's able to play as nobody else I know. To my big surprise he also wrote some lyrics and sung the lead vocals. His voice here reminds me of Paul Carrack, the former vocalist of the band Mike & The Mechanics. Please enjoy your listen, everybody.

BEN PODDER + HG SCHMITZ - CRAZY 'BOUT YA, 2011 / 2018 This is the second song with vocalist BEN PODDER I have reworked and remastered. It got originally recorded in 2011. On this tune Ben demonstrates his ability of singing the Funk. At the risk of repeating myself I have to say that he is one of the best male vocalists I've ever worked with. His phrasings and ad-libs are a raving delight and his voice is so powerful and simply unique. CRAZY 'BOUT YA is definitely one of the most challenging projects I'd ever been involved in because my works on the programmings of the elaborate horns arrangements almost killed me. Enjoy your listen well, everybody.

HG SCHMITZ - SAVED FROM DROWNING, 2018 This song is for KJELL JOHANSSON. Dear Kjell ! There isn't anything I can give to you, except some music. Actually you deserve way more as just a song. In the most dangerous and awkward crisis I'd ever been in all my life, you rescued me by acting so very selflessly. You made me feeling relieved and at the same time I'm totally ashamed. 'And when you think, things have come to an end, a little light from heaven will be sent' . . . This particular light came from Sweden. Right now I really don't know why and how, but the day will come when I return the favour to you. You can bet your life on that. I want to thank you sinserely my friend. Humans like you have become rare in this world. As I know you, you aren't the typical fan of pop music, lol. So I decided for a quite jazzy tune. And as you know me, I can't do jazz without a tiny little touch of funk. Please enjoy the music and see it as my mark of recognition. HG, 07 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

BEN PODDER + HG SCHMITZ - THEN YOU CAME, 2009 / 2018 Many years before I became a member of Fandalism I posted my music on a German internet page. There I met a vocalist named BEN PODDER. We started recording several songs together. THEN YOU CAME is one of these tunes. It got recorded in 2009 Ben's voice meshes perfectly with Funk, Soul and R&B. When I hear him singing he always reminds me to Peter Gabriel, especially on this song here. Unfortunately, we lost contact since a couple of years. He is one of the most skilled and talented singer artists I've ever worked with In 2012 I did a first remix/remaster of THEN YOU CAME. It got released on Fandalism as an audio upload from Soundcloud. Now there is a video behind the music.

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - TALES OF LOVE AND EVILNESS, 2018 Since many years Hilde and I had the idea of doing some musical stuff like this. The instrumentals of the songs we used got written and recorded between 2014 and 2017. In the beginning of September 2017 we started to realize our intention of creating a Pop Rock Opera. After more than 8 months of intensive and time consuming work we can proudly announce that we have finished our project and fulfilled ourselves a dream. TALES OF LOVE AND EVILNESS is subdivided into 14 chapters. The Intro of our story gets followed by 13 vocal songs and 1 instrumental track which acts as the Outro. Viewers and listeners have to be patient if they want to experience the whole project. The total length amounts to 1 hour and 7 minutes. Hilde and I are well aware that not everybody will hear and see on our work to full content but we are sure that you will miss something if you do not. There are further informations about production details, cast and characters at the end of the video. We would like to thank sincerely all those people who were involved in this project. Without you a realization would not have been possible. Lyrics: 01 AS IF Hey Mr. Manson - how are you doin' ? I wanna introduce myself to you Take a good look into my face I'm standing right in front of you I don't like your attitude You don't see me as I am You just want me for pleasure But it's not who I am As if my face gets blury As if I got no mind As if my pain don't move me As if I'm out of time As if you understand me But all you see is fame You wanna make me your way But my soul is not for sale Hey Hey Yeah HEY ! Take a good look ! Come on ! My souls is not for sale As if I do what you want me to do Stay away from me Stay away from me Stay away from me Don't come any closer !

I wish you to be okay I wish you find back to the person that you used to be I hope your cigarettes won't kill you and your drinking will chill you I hope your heart of stone will melt I hope you keep your health I hope your lovers won't forsake you I hope you don't look back And regret your actions And your silly life Cause is it time for pride Or is it time for shame Now it is only yourself you gotta blame Break a leg Break a leg Someday you will see Someday you will see You will see Somewhere deep inside your heart I hope you will enjoy the chances you get And the doors that close and open Before you shut them I hope you have thought about The consequences and the options You can get If you bet on the right horse that you're looking for the right quality Before you hit the floor BEFORE YOU HIT THE FLOOR ! Yeah ! I say: Break a leg ! Break a leg ! Break a leg ! You don't get nothing more from me now !! Break a leg ! Come on Break a leg - And then you go ! Hoooo !

CJ BERRY - HG SCHMITZ - WIN-WIN-SITUATION, 2018 CJ and I started producing this fusion track in late 2017. But suddenly my PC crashed down and I had no access to the data of the broken hard disk drive anymore. Months went by before a good friend of mine made it possible to restore all the files which I thought would be lost for all times. So I started working on the tune again but then the next shock appeared. CJ became sick and he still hasn't recovered completely yet. All these bad circumstances made it really difficult to finish the song but finally we got it done.

A few days ago I had just the separate guitar tracks. The final arrangements of combining the new drums and bass programmings with the formerly loose guitar tracks made the whole thing to a serious song. The video I found on Vimeo and used it for strictly non-commercial purposes. HG, 05 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - S.T.U.P.I.D., 2011 / 2018 This is an instrumental pop rock song from the album 'Freshness" which I produced in 2011. It once got released on Fandalism as an audio upoad from Soundcloud. Now I have improved the sound quality of the entire recording and created a video what took a lot more time as the remaster of the song itself. I'm becoming more and more experienced in using the Adobe video software. It isn't all perfect but I made some progress. S.T.U.P.I.D. is the first new release of 4 remastered tracks from that album. I'm still working on the videos for the other 3 ones - ARMED TO LOVE, LOVERS AND HATERS and TOO MANY SUCKERS. Step by step I will post them in upcoming future.

HG SCHMITZ - EXPERT TESTIMONIES, 2018 This is an unreleased instrumental funk song from 2016. I'd never been satisfied with the drum line and so I programmed a completely new one the last days. The title EXPERT TESTIMONIES occurred by reason of my fight against the German state. Around 3 years ago I applied for my pension because I'm incapable of work since I got sick almost 5 years ago. They send me from doctor to doctor for more and more expert testimonies. I had to lawyer up and went to court and now they play on time. I'm still waiting for the trial and I'm totally unsure about how long they want to let me wait. It is a helpless situation. HG, 2016 - 04 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

ANNEMIEK BEEX & HG SCHMITZ - TO MY MIND, 2018 After I'd finished my works on this jazzy pop song I actually felt pretty well with the final results. But then I had doubts. And I was right. On the original version I programmed a piano line which got more or less created by using the famous '2-finger-search-system'. The melody became very nice but it was just a sequence of single tones without any chord playing. I'm a lousy keyboarder. So I asked Annemiek Beex for joining me and that was a fantastic idea. I requested her to play as close as possible to the original melody of the programmings and she did it as swift and exact as an arrow. There is a difference of miles between a piano programmer like me and an educated piano player of her size. Annemiek is simply a genius on her instrument. She gave the atmosphere to the tune which was missing in my programmings. There is a special kind of depth in the music now that I wasn't able to create. Her skills on the piano are extraordinary great and I'm very happy about having her on board for this project. Thank you very much, Annemiek.

HG SCHMITZ - I SAY HI, 2016 / 2018 My dear Baby ! Today I SAY HI to you. My last public declaration of love I sent you a longer while ago. It was time for doing it again. Music and video are just for you. This so far unreleased song is for my sweetheart Hilde. Since we met around 5 years ago she makes me happy everyday. I can't imagine a life without her anymore. We are still separated from each other and can't live a normal life at one and the same place. But we never give up and the day will come when we realize our dream. I wanted to post the tune way earlier but couldn't find the right video for it. Now I discovered the perfect one on Vimeo. It was really worth waiting for that.

HG SCHMITZ - DEMONIAC SNACK ATTACK, 2018 I know about some people who eat all the time - at least it seems to be like that, lol ! The special person I think about will know who I mean. One of those folks is myself. There are situations when I can't stop from stuffing me with food which isn't really healthy for the body. But in moments like that health doesn't count. It feels as if a 'DEMONIAC SNACK ATTACK' is coming over you without any chance of escape. And exactly this fact is the subject of the song I recorded around September and October 2017. It is a rock tune with influences of pop and punk. The video got finished a few days ago. HG, 2017 - 04 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - TALKING GERLISHWEGIAN, 2018 If you aren't capable of speaking the language of your girlfriend, and your sweetheart can't speak your own mother tongue you have to make a compromise of meeting in the middle. My sweetheart is Norwegian. I am German. So we communicate in English cause that's what we both are able to understand and speak. But now and then we amend some words of our mother languages to our conversations and that sounds quite funny sometimes. We created our own special kind of accommodation. 'TALKING GERLISHWEGIAN' is a simple instrumental pop rock song from the beginning of this year which relates to that subject.

HG SCHMITZ - SHADE-LOVING SOULS, 2018 An alternative rock song with influences of funk and pop music. The structure of the arrangement doesn't follow the normal and ordinary rules of usual build-ups in rock or pop music. I have tried to veer away from a normal structure. There isn't a real A-part or B-part and there are no repeats of parts which are normally appearing in pop & rock arrangements. There is an intro and an outro but between the opening and the finishing part verses and choruses are variegating again and again. It depends on the listener where to find a bridge part. The one hears it here, the other one there and maybe there are also people who can't find a bridge at all. I have worked in just 2 basic tonalities - E and F - what makes the tune sounding quite simple. For all the guitars I have used several virtual amps of the 'Guitar Rig 4' tool, as well the guitar sounds are from that tool. I've played all the guitars directly into my PC. The drum programmings were made with the sounds of the 'BFD 2' drum software and the keys and synths got programmed with the 'Nexus' tool. The bass programmings got done with 'Trilian' from Spectrasonics. The video installation got created with the Adobe Premiere Elements software. Enjoy ! HG, 01 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - QUICK ART, 2018 This song is some Progressive Funk. All tracks got originally recorded and programmed in 2016 but since that time I'd never been working on a constructive arrangement. That I did in the past 2 months. Finally I started working on the video. On Christmas Hilde got a new video editing software from me. The former one she usually used she gave to me. It is way better as any other video tool I ever owened before. But I have to learn how to use it and this video here is one of my first attemps. 'Quick Art' is an homage to the life of Hilde and me and Hilde's two cats - four creatures who definitely became one. HG, 01 / 2018 © 2018 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - HOSTAGES OF TIME, 2007 / 2018 Progressive Rock isn't what I do every day. But there has been a time when I experimented with a lot of different styles. 'Hostages Of Time' occured in a period between 2006 and 2007. The original tracks weren't usable because of many sound deficits, except the drum line. Step by step I redid all recordings and programmings and the very final step was the video. It became quite simple but it goes with the message of music and title pretty well. Have a good time everybody - wherever you are in this world. HG, 2007 - 01 / 2018 © 2007 HGS PRODUCTIONS

JOHNNY GRAUENGAARD + HG SCHMITZ - MAN ON THE MOON, 2014 / 2018 This pop rock song got written by Johnny in 2014. He sent me a rough copy and asked me for doing some adds. So I started immediately working on the tune. Finally I added some additional drums and the entire C-part which starts at around 2:24. Somehow we both almost forgot about this song. I can remember that we planed to make some variations on the arrangements and Johnny thought the drum rolls at the beginning of the song were too heavy. At that time in 2014 we also worked on several other projects and maybe that has been the reason why "The Man On The Moon" got out of our sight. Finally I re-discovered the song and started working on a remaster. The video I found on Vimeo and used it for strictly non-commercial purposes.

HG SCHMITZ - KICK IT OFF, 2017 / 2018 Around a year ago there was a time when my Marshall amp broke down. At a moment's notice I couldn't record guitar stuff anymore. What to do in a situation like this ? So I started working on some electronic productions by using different kinds of synths, keys, electronic drums and midi-guitars. Finally 3 songs occured and "Kick It Off" is one of them. The music style is hard to describe. I would like to call it "Electro-Funk-Pop-Rock" with a touch of Techno, lol. For the drums and percussion I used the Electronic Kit from EZ Drummer. All other recording tracks got programmed with a bunch of synths, such as Nexus, Predator, Blue, Moog Modular, Memorymoon, etc. I also used the sounds of the Hypersonic 2 multi-instrument tool from Steinberg, especially for the midi guitars. In the end it became a rhythmic and danceable something which wasn't really planed at the beginning and that's exactly what makes me so obsessed of creating music. It was great fun seeing the development while working on the tune. I feel quite contented with the final results. HG, 2017 - 01 / 2018 © 2017 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - LET THERE BE LIGHT, 2017 Most of the recording tracks I used for this song are from 2010, except the drums and bass programmings which are brand-new. Finding the video on Vimeo was a sheer stroke of luck. I'd been searching for a longer time to find some adequate footage and what I finally discovered is the perfect fit that meshes definitely with the title of the song. The video shows one of the most unusual and felicitous fashion events I have ever seen. This is what I call innovative and creative art. The makers, especially the lightning choreographs, did a tremendous great job as I think. Just having the idea of doing something like this deserves top appreciation. Please enjoy music and pictures.

HG SCHMITZ - NO TIME FOR NOTHING, 2008 / 2017 What you will hear now is an instrumental jazz song with R&B influences. It is one of my early attempts of creating elaborate horns arrangements. The tune got posted on Fandalism for the very first time as an audio upload from Soundcloud in 2008 but shortly after the release I deleted it again because I didn't felt satisfied with the sound quality. More than 9 years later I added some footage to the music and improved the sound as good as possible. I haven't recorded any new tone for the new mix. All tracks are definitely from 2008. For everybody who is interested in looking for the virtual instruments I utilized, as well the guitars I played and the appropriate recording equipment I used, here is a list. Used software for the programmings: Drums: Addictive Drums, EZ Drummer (Rock - Pop Kit) Percussion: EZ Drummer (Percussion Kit) Bass: Trilogy (previous version of Trilian from Spectrasonics) Keys & Synths: Hypersonic 2 from Steinberg, Nexus, Blue from Rob Papen FX's: Hypersonic 2, Nexus Trumpets: Sample Modeling - The Trumpet Saxes: SaxLab from LinPlug Played instruments: Acoustic Guitar: Ovation Microphone: Neumann Electric Guitars: Ibanez SA 220 FM, Gibson SG Amp: Marshall Mix & Mastering: Lexicon, Waves HG, 2008 - 12 / 2017 © 2009 HGS PRODUCTIONS

SA.GO.BA. - HG SCHMITZ HIT THE JACKPOT, 2017 This funk song has been a hard one to do. What sounds so easy and simple was a very hard and difficult job, as well the instrumental work as Sam's vocal creation. Some obstacles impeded an earlier finishing of the tune. My PC collapsed and I couldn't work on music for several weeks. Sam had severe health problems and had to set priorities to his recovering. Finally we did it and today we want to present our new common song. Please listen to Sam's thoughts, fears and feelings he had the night before hurricane Irma came.

HG SCHMITZ - SLAP IT OUT !, 2017 Another song from the vault. This is an instrumental punk rock tune which got constructed in 2017. The guitar tracks I used are originally from 2009. All this material has never got arranged as a seriously real produced song. The drums and bass programmings are completely new and it has been some kind of a puzzle to get it all together working well with the guitar stuff. Finally the track became 2.55 minutes long and I'm very glad I could realize it to what it is now. For all lovers of speedy punk rock. Please enjoy ! HG, 10 / 2017 © 2017 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HILDE SVENDSRUD - JOHNNY GRAUENGAARD - HG SCHMITZ - 'OUT-OF-FOCUS, 2017' This new project Hilde and I created in coproduction with JOHNNY GRAUENGAARD from Sweden. I'm always fascinated about how well Hilde and Johnny blend with each other when they sing together. They both have an affinity for this kind of pop music. The song is structured very simple and easy and maybe that's the reason why it became so catchy. Simplicity is the key and so I abstained from elaborate keys or guitar solos, deliberately, while working on the instrumental. Please enjoy your listen well, everybody.

HG SCHMITZ - LIGHTS AT NIGHT, 2009 / 2017 A classic rock instrumental - originally recorded in 2009, remastered 2017. Currently I rework several recordings from the past. There's a lot of stuff that wants to come out of the vault, lol. "Lights At Night" is just one of those tracks that got constructed and arranged with guitar snippets from different time periods. The drums and bass programmings are completely new. Sometimes I feel totally astounded about all the useful material I discover that I once recorded while practicing on the guitar. I have never expected this stuff could be worth that much for creating serious song arrangements. The video I found on Vimeo and used it for strictly non-commercial purposes.

HG SCHMITZ - THE POPE ON SPEED, 2007 / 2017 This funk rock tune got originally recorded in 2007. I once released it as an audio upload from Soundcloud. But I felt unsatisfied of having no video for the background. So I started searching for some footage on Vimeo and voilà - I found this little animated cartoon which fits perfectly to the music. This is a satiric and ironic view on the pedophiliac misconducts of many members from the Catholic Church. The only way to stand those unacceptable deeds which - as the official statements of the high-ranking church dignitaries said - had been 'individual cases', is taking it with a little humor. Talking about 'exceptions' makes the whole scandal even more worse and the Catholic Church becomes more and more implausible. They still sing their praises of the celibacy.

HG SCHMITZ - SCARED OF HEIGHTS, 2017 This is an alternative hard rock song. The guitar tracks I used are from different recording periods. Some of them are from 2006, others from 2011 and 2015. Bass and drums got programmed during the past 3 weeks. I am totally afraid of heights. Don't really know where my phobia comes from. The strange thing is that my fears only appear when I'm somewhere in the open air what means that I don't have any problems with heights as long as I'm in closed rooms, for instance while flying in an aeroplane, sitting in a restaurant of a television tower or looking out of the window of a higher building. Sometimes it even scares me passing a high bridge with my car. The video I found on Vimeo and used it for strictly non-commercial purposes. HG, 09 / 2017 © 2017 HGS PRODUCTIONS

Now I have remastered the tune and put some footage behind the music. The video shows excerpts from the 'MidnightMare Fashion Show'. I'm not very familiar with fashion presentations and I can't keep Gucci apart from Chanel but this kind of clothing the models wear on the catwalk I really like. Probably it is because of the colours 'cause I'm a fan of black and white. This kind of fashion isn't too excessively stylish and can be worn by everybody. Have fun with the music.

MELVIN DONOVAN - GABRIELLA GAINES - HG SCHMITZ - WE REAP WHAT WE SOW, 2017 In a way this song is a counterbalance to the lastest posts I did. 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW' is some kind of folk rock, or better, country rock. I always liked to have alternation in styles and I want to keep on doing that. My partner on this tune is MELVIN DONOVAN who invited his granddaughter to participate in doing some additional vocals. Thank you very much GABRIELLA GAINES for having been with us here. After a few months of the Trump administration the whole world could see how sick this man is in his brain. He is nothing but a narcissist and psychopath. The best proof for that was his behaviour at the G7-meating in Europe, lately. All the voters of Trump reap what they sow now and that's what the footage of the video is all about. I'm feeling so sad for all the people who didn't voted for him but have to put up with him now.

I never released it before because I didn't felt contented with sound and arrangement. Even today the sound quality isn't perfect but the re-arrangement of the entire track became pretty well now. One word to my friend MELVIN DONOVAN. Mel - when I was looking for a video I found this one on Vimeo. The title reminded me of you. I really don't know why the filmmaker decided for this title but I had to smile when I first read it. The movie is called "Melvin The Magical Mixed Media Machine". LOL !!!!!!!

HG SCHMITZ - IF TOUCHES COULD KILL, 2007 / 2017 I think many people who are creating music know about the situation of incompleted and unfinished projects which once got started but never finished. After a while you almost forget about them because you go on working on other productions. 'IF TOUCHES COULD KILL' is a good example for that. I started working on this particular tune in 2007. Solely the guitar tracks were in a satisfying condition when I rediscovered the song. All the rest - bass, drums, the sound quality of the entire tune and the arrangement - needed improvements. In the middle of 2016 I began reworking the whole material. Originally the title of the song was "If Looks Could Kill". I finished my works around the beginning of December 2016, right in time for Franck Szypura's birthday on the 11th of December. So this song became his birthday present. It was just an audio track. A while later I found the video I finally used on Vimeo. Everybody who's watching it will understand immediately why I changed the title from "If Looks Could Kill" to "If Touches Could Kill". The new title meshed with the story line of the movie to 100 %. "If Touches Could Kill" is a classic rock song. There are no synths and keys used, just drums and bass programmings and my guitars.

ALBERT DESOTO - HG SCHMITZ JUSTICE IS A CONSTANT FIGHT, 2017 The instrumental of this rock song got originally recorded in 2006. In October 2016 I sent it to Albert after I did a remaster of the whole material. Somehow I heard Al's voice on the tune even before I asked him to sing to it and I'd been feeling very glad when he agreed to my request of becoming my partner for this production. Step by step we implemented the project and today we can proudly present the final results of our works. Dear Albert ! Your lyrics and the pictures you used for the video are showing Hilde and me that you have totally understood about her and my situation. You have put yourself into our place and you have also realized the unsatisfying circumstances we had and still have to walk through since 4 years. When Hilde and I watched the video for the first time we felt deeply touched and we both want to thank you very much for your empathy.

HG SCHMITZ - HEY FRANK, 2001 / 2017 In all probability this is the very first serious recording I ever did. Around one year after starting playing guitar I programmed a drum and bass groove that steadily repeats, added an organ and layed a solo guitar improvisation over it. Technically it is nothing special but I like the melody I played. All over the years I have tried to redo the whole solo but I always failed. I never came close to the original recording, neither in tone nor in melody. It was one of those moments back in 2001 when I did something instinctively which I can't repeat in exactly the same way. Finally I decided to improve the original tracks as good as possible and here are the results. HG, 2001 - 03 / 2017 © 2001 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - LET'S DO IT NOW AND HERE ! 2002 / 2017 This particular song is a very special one for me. Never had the time for reworking the old tracks but now I finally got it made. They all got originally recorded in 2002. The first release was in 2005. 1999 I started playing guitar seriously and at the same time I began to learn how to work with Cubase. Haven't had a clue about how to use a sequencer correctly at those days. Anyway, I always knew that the recordings from 15 years ago had some kind of potential. "LET'S DO IT NOW AND HERE" is the very first reggae tune I ever produced. What I love the most is that steady monotone groove of the tune. 7.15 minutes are passing by as if it were only 2. The guitars got recorded by playing them with the sounds of the "Guitar Rig 2" directly into my PC. Haven't used an amp. From my point of view of today I can't really believe something like this is possible. The organ and the clavinet got programmed with the "Hypersonic 2" VST from Steinberg. This program is running on 32 bits only and I'm very happy I kept one PC which is able to work with it. The sounds are simply marvelous. "Hypersonic 2" is a multi-instrumental tool offering you sounds for basses, keys, synths, strings, drums, percussions and many more. For the drum line I used the BFD 2 tool and the bass got made with the forerunner of "Trilian" called "Trilogy" from Spectrasonics. Please enjoy the song and don't be too critical with your assessments. This tune is from my very early days. HG, 2002 - 03 / 2017 © 2005 HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - THE HUMAN FACTOR, 2007 / 2017 After several posts of collaborations with different musicians and releases of songs I produced with my cohabitee Hilde Svendsrud I decided to remaster one of my solo projects which I like to present today. Currently Hilde works on the videos for two of our new "Schmitzruds" productions. Both songs are completely finished but the videos are missing. That gives me the time to post this tune I have produced by my own. It is a rock song that contains no other instruments as acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drum programmings. "The Human Factor" got originally recorded in 2007. The tune needed some improvements which I have done while remastering all the tracks a few weeks ago. Now I found a really cool video on Vimeo that I used without any commercial purposes. All Instruments & Programmings, Arrangements, Mix & (Re)Mastering by HG SCHMITZ Please enjoy !

MELVIN DONOVAN + HG SCHMITZ - EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT WELL, 2017 Approximately 2 months ago I got inspired of recording a country song what I have never done before in my life. The person who motivated me was DAVE RODRIGUEZ and so this song is dedicated to him and his wife ANNETTE. During the production process of the instrumental I knew already who to ask for writing the lyrics and singing to the song - MELVIN DONOVAN. And once again it was the right choice. I'm very happy he joined me on this project. In uncertain times of the Trump administration in the USA millions of people all over the world are feeling afraid of dark times coming up. This "president" is totally incapable. One possiblity to stand the situation is pure optimism and so I called the song "EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT WELL". Melvin's lyrics are critical, informative, provocative, sarcastic and funny at the same time. As a German I wouldn't have been able of writing a text like this as Melvin did it in his mother tongue. He also did an awesome great job by presenting his words on the vocal.

SAGOBA + HG SCHMITZ - MY DOCTOR IS A FOOL, 2017 Sam and I are very glad we can proudly present our new common work today. This project took us a few months to finish it. Sam stuck in his works of producing an album and I'd been working on several other projects during that time. But today our baby got born ! The title "MY DOCTOR IS A FOOL, 2017" relates on an experience I made with a pain therapist last year. I want to spare you mentioning any details of that quaint meeting I had with this man. All I can say is that he acted so unbelievably strange that I decided to choose this title for my current project I'd been working on at that time.

In October and November last year I posted several reggae tunes on You Tube without releasing them on Fanda. I have decided for a special one of them and want to dedicate it to you.

MELVIN DONOVAN + HG SCHMITZ LIFE IS THE HARDEST, 2007 / 2017 The instrumental of this song got originally recorded in 2007. I had the opportunity of using the equipment from my friend Philip who also had been responsible for the recordings of the acoustic guitars. A while ago around the last quarter of 2016 I asked Melvin if he likes to write some lyrics for the tune and to sing to it. He's always my favourite choice when I'm doing music which is going into any direction of folk. And my choice was right - Melvin never disappoints me. He also added his unmistakably sounding 12-string acoustic guitar which became an absolute winner for the song.

HG SCHMITZ - TOO MUCH DATA, 2005 / 2016 This is my very first post in 2017. In our fast moving times life gets more and more influenced by masses of data. As a person who got born in the late 50's I remember times when only 2 TV programs were available, telephones had dial plates and my most professional recording equipment was a Dolby-C tape recorder. Today there's a lot more of media. And of course, there is also way more data that creeps into our brains causing an overdose of information. This song got originally recorded in 2005. I had just a very few guitar bits from that time I could use. Bass and drums got programmed completely new. There are no other instruments used. TOO MUCH DATA is a simple structured punk rock tune.

All tracks are the original ones from 10 years ago. I limited myself to use this stuff only and haven't added any new tone. Just let me say some words to the video. Cannabis can be a magical help for people who are suffering under horrible pains. It isn't just the drug devil as many people see it. Reggae like this is and stays one of my favourite music styles. I'm still working on some more remasters. HG, 2006 - 12 / 2016 © 2016 HGS PRODUCTIONS

KAIBOARD + HG SCHMITZ - BAREFOOT JIGS ON PUSHPINS, 2016 This is my very first common project with Kai we did by our own. He once told me he'd been playing in a metal band in the past. So we decided to work on an instrumental that I recorded several years ago - not really a metal but a hard rock tune. ( or is it metal ??? ) Kai played all keys and synths, did the final mix and mastering and edited the video. I played the guitars and programmed bass and drums. Kai's skills on the keys are tremendous. It is such a piece of luck for me having him as my partner on this tune. This song is for all lovers of harder rock 'n' roll.

HG SCHMITZ - MISIMPRESSIONS, 2016 This is reggae music - some deep roots reggae. The song got originally recorded in 2006. It was my year of doing a lot of reggae stuff. I have started to remaster a serie of songs from that time. "MISIMPRESSIONS" is one of them. I love this monotone groove and the simplicity of that tune. Less is really more sometimes. The song contains no complex guitar solos or other elaborate arrangements. Even the horns are very simple but this is exactly what the song needs. So I hope you like it the same as I do.

HG SCHMITZ - COMING TRUE, 2016 This is one more release of a reggae production I did originally in 2006. All instrument tracks are from that time. If you are really believing in something it will come true one day. That's what this song is about. Sometimes your dreams relapse but if you keep on fighting to realise them they will come true. This song is for my Baby. I found the video footage called "The Windmill Farmer" on Vimeo. It is such a sweet little animation that speaks out of my soul. HG, 2006 - 11 / 2016 © 2016 HGS PRODUCTIONS

MAURICIO GARAY - HG SCHMITZ JUST FOLLOW YOUR NOSE, 2016 A real pleasure for me having the opportunity of working with one of the best vocal artists I know - MAURICIO GARAY. The instrumental got recorded many years ago. Before I asked Mauricio to sing to it I did a complete remix and remaster of the original tracks. The vocals had always been missing on the tune but now I got the perfect singer for this piece of music. You made me very happy with the final results, Mauricio. MAURICIO GARAY: LYRICS & VOCALS HG SCHMITZ: IDEA AND COMPOSITION, ALL INSTRUMENTS AND PROGRAMMINGS, ARRANGEMENTS, FINAL MIX AND MASTERING I hope the American people do well with their decision who's becoming the next President of their nation. Of course, there are the American folks only who are allowed to vote but the person who's gonna rule the USA in future is also very important for all the rest of the world. Enjoy listening everybody ! Mauricio & HG, 11 / 2016 © 2016 HGS PRODUCTIONS LYRICS: I got an email in my box today it said don't you bother coming in, the company is on its way to a place that pays some dividends, retirement will have to wait and we need to borrow your last check, to help pay for the brand new help, we wish you all the very best. World record-breaking stocks, the world meanwhile just laughs and mocks. how long can we keep on eating the lies, constantly repeating Race relations on the rocks, the little ones are needing socks sister, brother, father, mother, dont forget, to love each other Leaders make themselves to last, they want power they want cash, you know I'd like to help you son, but I got a campaign I need run, don't forget to cast your vote, cause I'm your last and only hope, a millionaire and your own show, smells so good just follow your nose All of mankind on the brink, hating so much they can't think, sister, brother, father, mother, dont forget, to love each other The world is running out of time, just for once lets use our minds bells and whistles should be sounding, final warning pressure mounting Race relations on the rocks, the little ones their needing socks sister, brother, father, mother, dont forget, to love each other All of mankind on the brink, hating so much they can't think, blaming it all on each other, can't we talk to one another

STIG JONES + HG SCHMITZ - LUNATIC BLUES, 2016 This is the very first common project of Alan and me. We once worked on the legendary "Experiment Project" but we never did a particular song together. That changes today. A while ago I sent Alan a blues instrumental which got originally recorded around 2005 or 2006. I asked him if he would like to write some lyrics for the tune and to put his awesome and unique raw voice onto the song. He agreed and today we can present our final results. As an enthusiast of the blues Alan participated many times in the "Blues Thursday" on Fandalism. For me it is my first contribution ever to that happening.

HG SCHMITZ - BIG MOUTH AND COLD FEET, 2016 The day of decision is coming closer. This is my statement about both - pest and cholera. I disbelieve the day of decision will be the day of judgement at the same time. Whoever wins this election - what the world gets is a disease. One of both candidates will be the next President of The United States. Can you imagine ? A disaster for the whole world. I guess being stoned could be the better way to stand it. But even then it's getting hard. This is a reggae jam originally recorded in 2006, remastered 2016. HG, 10 / 2016 © 2016 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

ANNEMIEK BEEX - HG SCHMITZ WOOPIE, 2016 Written by ANNEMIEK BEEX. She played all keys, added the opening guitar riff which is running through the entire song, programmed the bass line and did the video editing. I programmed the drums, but I have to confess that my drum line only works in combination with Annemiek's drums which she also programmed for the original recording she sent me. You don't really hear her drums in the final mix but without them my drum line would be worth nothing. So please trust me - they are definitely there. I played also all other guitars and did the final mix and mastering. Actually I had absolutely no time for joining Annemiek on a collab but she captured me with her FUNK and JAZZ ! Currently I have no amp. My Marshall is out of function and I can't afford the reparing. So I used the Guitar Rig sounds and played my guitars directly into my audio interface. That needs a lot of adjustments and is very time consuming. Thanks for sending me this tune, Annemiek. Actually you haven't asked me to join you on this song but I couldn't resist working on it ! That wasn't the first time it happened like this. Annemiek & HG, 09 / 2016 © 2016 - Annemiek Beex

HG SCHMITZ - ONE BEER SHORT OF A SIXPACK, 2010 / 2016, AUDIO VERSION Because my video software is a sound killer I want to post the audio version of Mark Hall's birthday song parallel to the video version. The sound quality of the audio is way better. Relating to sound I'm acting very perfectionistic and I want to give any listener the chance to hear my music in best quality. The intro of the video version I left out. Dear Mark ! Once again HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Hilde and I ! HG, 2010 - 09 / 2016 © 2016 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - ONE BEER SHORT OF A SIXPACK, 2010 / 2016, The guys from the British island are always acting so very complicated. Yesterday it was John Lunn who celebrated his birthday. Today it is MARK HALL. Hey Mark ! Couldn't you have asked your Mom to deliver you one day earlier ??? Or couldn't John have asked his mother for a one day delay ? It would have been way easier for me to create a common birthday video for the both of you in one go !!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK from Hilde and I! We wish it would rain beer for you today so you could fill up your glass by holding it out of the window !! And I'm talking about real beer. German beer, of course, lol !!! Have a splendid day with your wife and kids. We love ya !!! Btw, just for your enjoyment I have posted the audio version of the song parallel. The sound quality is way better.
