Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts - First Chart Entry

Introduction

It means nothing for lasting success. Nevertheless it is a milestone in the development of a music producer. The charts flood the marketing brain of a music producer daily. What makes the success in this time? Why don’t the millions of listeners listen to my music?

Unfortunately the topic is so complex that one could despair. Of course, one knows all the mechanisms, but when it comes to one’s own creative work, it always becomes difficult. A targeted effort crowned with success is helpful in this respect.

 

What really happened

The song “The Ways We Go” was dedicated to South African miners. If it’s not just a gag, that’s the very first target group for the song. The question was if and how we can reach target groups.

What could be more obvious than to place an advertisement in South Africa and draw attention to the song. Due to a small budget and the short attention span of potential listeners, it could only be a one-time promotional hit.

Fortunately, this blow hit a few interested parties who bought the song. Since the iTunes charts are updated daily, it was enough to briefly land between the heavyweights of the music scene.

 

What does that mean now?

If you are not familiar with the highly competitive music business, you might think that this is surprisingly easy. It is not! With 40,000 new releases per day, even advertising is useless if the product is no good. And only one purchase (maybe from your South African grandmother) is guaranteed not to get you into these charts.

The Founder

My name is Horst Grabosch and I am the mastermind of all projects presented on this website.

I was born in the largest coal mining area in Germany, known as the “Ruhrgebiet”. After school I worked as a professional musician until I was 40 years old. This time is well documented on WIKIPEDIA

After a burnout I had to give up my job, moved to the south of Germany, to the Munich region, and did an apprenticeship as an information technologist.

Another burnout forced me to rebuild my existence again, which collapsed just because of the corona crisis. In expectation of poverty at retirement age, I began to build a second career as a musician in 2019.

New Music

Christmas for Lunatics - Horst Graboscj

Christmas for Lunatics

2 years ago we were amazed when Horst Grabosch, with his project Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts released a Christmas song. At that time we could discover for the first time the romantic side of the otherwise often biting artist – but only in the music. The lyrics, disguised as a documentary, revealed his biting side again. The result of this mixture reflected his ambivalent nature. Today, a clearly biting Christmas song is on the gift table for 2022. On the basis of “Joy to the World” and this time under his civil name, he takes the Christmas concern with rockets and other war equipment violently on the joke. But again, the song has very pleasing sides.

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie gerträumten Träume - Horst Grabosch

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie geträumten Träume

Horst Grabosch is always good for a surprise. Not that this is the first poem set to music that the eclectic has published, but the style is new. Familiar twists appear, but with this song rock elements, a quote from historical NASA rocket launches and electronic elements give each other a hand. The German lyrics are no less confusing. Some kind of shaman promises the way to a new life, which begins “unceremoniously loud” in the “stripped skin”. The master himself sings and the tones of the melody oscillate between the tones of the familiar tempered tuning, although the former professional trumpeter certainly knows exactly where they actually belong – unique.

La quarta porta per la pace della mente - Captain Entprima & Horst Grabosch

La quarta porta per la pace della mente

Fourth soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. This meditation unit is based on the keynote A. This time a melodic instrument runs throughout the piece. As can be seen from the transient response of the tones, it is an electronic wind instrument. The sound has quite a few effects that evolve over time, but the phases are constantly shifting. A very impressive performance.

Third soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. After opening the first door to peace of mind on the root C and the second door had root G, as expected the series continues with the root D – circle of fifths upwards. The principle remains, but the sounds change. Another wind chime and other melodic fragments. We are curious to see how it continues.

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar - Horst Grabosch

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar

The song bears the eclectic signature of German author Horst Grabosch and the title is the beginning of the German constitution. In Grabosch’s typical style, which is somewhere between responsibility and irony, the danceable song leaves everything open as far as attitude is concerned. However, the dishonest solemnity of the movement is thoroughly destroyed.

Meditation and Music

Meditation is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.

Eclectic Electronic Music

After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.

Choice between what?

Of course, we condemn the war in Ukraine, but what choice do we have after that?
