Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way
TM have been doing some very special collaborations and projects since our journey started in 2008. Voilá – here they are: some of them burried in the past, waiting to be discovered again, others still continuing and blossoming.
Ever since Layerlab, Graz offered us to reproduce ourselves as 3D figures, the Minigrooves are basically joining us everywhere we’re going. They also will be hosting our upcoming crowdfunding video as well as they were the center piece of the “I Got Time“ video from our recent album. Check them out below!

The Taiwan Tours
2014 – 2017
4 years – 4 tours. The first tour in 2014 was featured by the „Recorder Various“ project, followed by a club tour in 2015 with Tali Rubinstein and the Interestring String Quartett. In 2016 we performed in front of 10.000 people at the Taichung Jazz Festival. In 2017 the Taipei Jazz Festival marked the end of our last trip to Asia so far. Join us on tour by checking out the Media section!
With Shawna Young
2016 – 2017
Shawna Yang is one of Taiwan’s finest Jazz musicians. This multitalented lady has plenty of live experience and it was a great honor to share the stage for shows in Austria and at the Taichung Jazz Festival. What a pleasure it was, check out the live video!

With Studio Percussion
In addition to the jazz and pop genres, TM’s music always uses some minimal music elements. Over the years, our own captain Wolfgang Radl has been focusing on the work of Steve Reich. It led the band to Studio Percussion, a well-known Austrian mallet ensemble and an unforgettable live performance at the famous Orpheum in Graz. Check it out!

2012 and 2014
“What you see is what you get!“ We microgrooved some classical masterpieces such as Vivaldi’s “Summer“ and “Winter“ and performed them live as well as we did some rearranged pieces from “Spring Kisses Summer Rain“. With a full pit-orchestra. Pure joy – check it out below!
2015 – 2018
We arranged and recorded the chamber music piece „Spe Salvi“ written by Austrian composer Gerhard Fuchs between 2015 and 2018. Appart from that, Gerhard supports us in raising sponsorships for upcoming projects.
With Ulli Pallemanns
2008 – 2012
After winning the Helix Board competition out of 800 bands, our cooperation with Ulli Pallemanns started. We recorded our debut album „Spring Kisses Summer Rain“ with him as well as some DVDs for the German Recording Magazine. Unfortunately, the masterpiece „Waterdrops“ stayed unfinished – but partially lives on in songs of „Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way“. Check out the exciting footage from our colab!
With Atmosphere Media
2010 – 2012
Atmosphere Media is a pioneer project which developed the first 4K Ultra High Definition ambience and entertainment plattform for luxury hotels, cruise lines, casinos, bars, lounges, restaurants and spas. During our journey we have been recording several live sets for AM. A few of them can be found in the Media section and on YouTube!

Studio Live Jams
2016 – 2017
The concept of Studio Live Jams is quite as simple as challenging: a radio host and a band do 1 hour of nonstop live recording. No cuts, no overdubs, no second take. And the whole thing gets broadcasted via livestream and on the radio. Hosted by Vincent Ederle we did 2 live jams together with Toniforum Graz. Audio files can be found below!

With Step Saturn
2010, 2012, 2016
Step Saturn is a composer and producer who is constantly exploring the spectrum of electronic music. We started to work together in 2010 but it somehow took us ages to release something together – check out what we did on „Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way“!
With Georg Gratzer
We have invited Georg Gratzer for one session with Atmosphere Media – he truly is the Godfather of reeds! From woodwinds to saxophones, from clarinets to didgeridoo, he masters all of those instruments. Check out the compositions we did together on the “All The Things“ record!
With Peter Stodulka
2008 – 2011
It was at “Klavierpeter“ Stodulka’s project studio in late 2007 when the first TM songs were jammed and recorded. One of the tracks “Not Yet“ later on won the Helix Board Contest to set of our journey. The studio does not exist anymore but we gave it a warm hearted fare well performance in 2011. Check out the Media section for some pictures of that faithful night and of course, the first TM performance video ever!

Jazz Chamber Music
2016 – 2017
With Petra Music (flute), Chien-Ching Kuo (violin) and Sigrid Narowetz (violoncello), we created a greater version of “Recorder Various“, focussing on Antonio Vivaldis solo concerts. That led us to the biggest European flute festival in Munich where we were able to present some brand new arrangements of Vivaldis “La Notte“. Check out this memorable evening in our Media section!

Recorder Various Taiwan
“Recorder Various“ is a musical concept based on contrasting continents, musical styles, composers’ backgrounds and instruments. Taiwanese music manager Evy Kao and our own composer/bass player Wolfgang Radl masterminded this project where baroque and contemporary music was combined as well as basso continuo and drum ‘n’ bass and it all was played solo in both ways, the ancient tradition and modern jazz scales. Brighten up your musical background by checking out “The best of Tainan“ video in our Media section!

Recorder Various Austria
2014 – 2015
Once TM returned to Austria, we decided to further develop the concept of “Recorder Various“and were looking for local support. The project was joined by the wonderful artists Lena Tschinderle on the recorder and Sigrid Narowetz on the cello. The Austrian version of “Recorder Various” is currently focusing on the works of baroque composers, eg. Henry Purcell, G.F. Telemann and Antonio Vivaldi, to mix it up with organic drum’n’bass music. Check out the gallery from our gig at one of the most famous Jazz locations in Austria in our Media section!
