Same procedure as every year!
Fröhliche Weihnachten und ein gutes, gesundes, wohlklingendes neues Jahr wünscht Karl Bartos und sein gesamtes Team
Merry christmas and a happy New Year from Karl Bartos and his entire team
Being awarded as "The Man with the Golden Ear" at Soundedit 2014 in Lodz/Poland has been an experience for itself. This award is huge, I tell you. But what has thrilled me more than anything has been two little video clips the festival committee has produced as a surprise for me and the smashing audience. I feel honoured and glad for these fantastic words! Thanks, mates, for that! And see you soon!
