Horst Siewert, aka Blank Fontana, 5 years on tour in Italiy, 1985 construction of a studio, music engineer, producer and songwriter. Since 1995 construction of the M.O.B Studiohouse with two studios, 3 production suites und label/merchandising facilities. Recordings among others: Abwärts, Ärzte, Fatih Akin soundtracks, Andrew Eldridge, Die Erde, various productions with the label Gran Hotel van Cleef, Jan Eisfeld, John Ellis, KMFDM, Nationalgalerie, Ninios con bombas, Rocko Schamoni, Sam Ragga Band, Slime, Thomas D. After the sale of the Studiohouse in late 2016, I built a house of clay on my olive/wine farm in Abruzzo/central east Italy with a wine cellar, an analog recording launch-suite and two apartments. Why clay you might ask: the energy in a clay-timber-straw space is incomparable, the acoustics, temperature and humidity is ideal. Why Abruzzo? Abruzzo has been spared from tourism, no TUI places and overcrowded beaches also in high seasons. Pure Italy at its best!
