Hey all

It's been a while since my last update here. How are things on deviantART these days? :)
Work and music keeps me very busy at the moment, but in a good way. I'm currently in the process of writing
new songs with my band glaston and cutting a new video for my youtube channel preisseldrums.

I'm hardly on deviantART anymore, but if you'd still like to see one or the other creative thing coming from you,
you can best do that via Instagram on instagram.com/preisseldrums.

Hope to see you there.

Be well.

Hey everyone

Here's the first Single of my band glaston - If you're into Experimental and Post Rock music, this may be for you :)



Enjoy.

And I'm very happy to update you on my latest video project featuring my drum Cover of TesseracT's Nocturne - one of my all time favorite songs.. and a pretty intense experience as the song challenged me in all aspects as a musician. But it was so much fun to learn the song, film and edit the footage all by myself :)

Filming: Nikon D7100 / Canon Mark III / GoPro
Editing: Sony Vegas 11 Platinum
Sounds: Recorded at Fist Studio, Switzerland

Watch in HD/720


Thanks for your support!

Hey all

It's been a while and I hope you're all doing well :)
Things went quiet but I've not been resting much. In fact I've got my own experimental/Post Rock Band
by now and creativity flows both into music and visuals. In other great news, a well known DeviantART artist
will contribute one of her Photographs to our EP Cover Artwork - More news coming soon.

Up until then, you can watch some teaser videos which I've recorded and edited with a Nikon D7100.

News from September 11th, 2011

Dear all

Today I'm retiring from photography and deviantART.

I've been a member of this great place for more than 9 years, made some good friends, became senior member and heck
even inspired fellow artists. I'm greatful for what I've learned here - but my time has come to move on.

Photography doesn't touch me anymore.. Not in a way it used to. Inspiration and motivation have entered standby
mode and I need to find new challenges to keep my creative soul going.
Music will still play a major role in my life, although my band Pure Inc. split up a while ago. I'll keep going and also
check back here every now and then - retiring from Photography doesn't mean I'll never touch a camera again ;)

If you want to contact me, please use my email address: horizon.at.bman.ch (.at. = @)

Thanks again for everything.

Cheers
David

Hey all,

It's been a while so I thought to give you small update on what's happening in my life.
Photography indeed gives me a hard time at the moment, I need to travel more, see new places and faces.. inspiration may
then come back :)

Up until then I've found something new:

Video editing.

As part of a 'Metal Gear Online' gaming clan I've decided to work myself a bit into Video editing and this is my firt attempt:

Hey All,

Is it just me or is there something about 'the older you get the faster time flies by'?

//Life
Just recently I've updated my journal with some things which are currently going on in my life. But 'just recently' actually was half a year ago :|
Life's indeed busy and mainly I've put all my energy into the creation of my band's 4th Studio Album. But things are looking good and faith of our latest creation actually lays in the hands of our Sound engineer now...

//the air i breathe...
It's the calm before the storm until the rest of the year which gives me some space to breathe and room for new inspiration. Photography has constantly been there with me, but mainly I had no time to fully dedicate myself to a project or I lacked of inspiration. But whenever i had the chance to pickup my cam I tried myself in Portrait Photography. My lovely girlfriend was kind enough to give me many chances to try myself... so probably more to come soon!
But also I will focus on some nature projects again, as Autumn is breaking in and i definitely will try to capture some of my most favorite season's beauty.

//deviantART
It seems like not only my time is flying by, but also deviantART seems to make progress... fast! So many new and talented artists out there, combined with many new deviantART features, which I couldn't even explore yet. I should really take some time to polish my profile, get back to all your nice comments and start to submit more artwork again..

//stuff..
When I was done with recording drums for our latest Album I've finally fulfilled myself a dream by buying a PlayStation 3. Mainly I bought the PS3 only for Metal Gear Solid 4 as I'm a diehard fan of the series. And I must say: This game is the best piece of art/movie/game I've ever played. Following Snake on his last mission is really touching (if you understood the story and played all previous games) and adventurous.
And the most recent Film I've enjoyed was 'The Inglourious Basterds'. Very impressive acting by the rather unknown German actors (e.g. Christoph Waltz).

Well and in other news I will have to undergo surgery. Having throat pain the specialists have discovered a polyp on my vocal cords. This will be removed soon I shall not speak for 3-4 days :/

Thanks for your support and see you all soon!

D.

Hey all,

It's been a while, so I thought to give you some updates about what's going on.

Life's busy and I'm currently writing new song material with Pure Inc. We've already planned to enter the
studios again end of this year. Music / Drums is the other half of my creativeness and currently needs alot of my attention.
But I haven't forgotten about my fellow deviants here or photography in general. I'm still reading my comments and get back to
people when ever time allows me to do so..

The year 2009 couldn't have started better: I've found my source of inspiration in kelly and also came up with a whole bunch of new photography ideas. Some of these (and kelly :)) can be seen in my most recent photographs. I have many new photogrphas up my sleeve, just need some time to work on them...More to come very soon!!!

Also I wanted to thank you all for your never tiring support and for the daily deviation on:
Perception by x-horizon

Have a good week all and see you around!

be safe!

Hope you like it, eventhough it's not directly related to my photography ;)

Hey all,

I'm currently somewhere in germany. The nightliner bus takes a rest as it's driver needs the required 9 hours to rest.
So I thought to give you a little update how things went so far. The past 3 weeks were really exhausting, but also we had a really good time and I hope promotion-wise it a positive tour for the tour.

I didnt take my camera on tour, as it was too risky for me. But still we've captured some moments for us to remember.
So if you want you can go to our myspace page and browse through the gallery. HERE ->viewmorepics.myspace.com/index…

More art will come soon :)

cheers!
