About me

Welcome to my website!

Marcel Turnes here, your friendly (former) electronic engineering student, turned musician extraordinaire. Buckle up, because I’m about to take you on an epic journey through the mesmerizing world of music gear and the thrilling adventures that come with it.

Picture this: I spent countless hours buried in electronic engineering textbooks, crunching numbers and tinkering with circuits. But beneath that scientific exterior, my heart beat to the rhythm of music. It was a calling I couldn’t ignore. So, when fate presented me with the opportunity to work at a recording studio, you bet I jumped on it! For three glorious years, I immersed myself in the captivating realm of sound, exploring every nook and cranny of the recording process.

From the moment I set foot in that studio, I knew I had found my true passion. It was like stepping into a magical wonderland, where creativity and technology merged into a symphony of sonic possibilities. I soaked up every bit of knowledge like a sponge, mastering the art of capturing, shaping, and refining sound. I learned the ins and outs of mixing consoles, audio interfaces, and the myriad of other gear that brings music to life.

But my love for music didn’t stop at the technical aspects. Oh no, I had a burning desire to create my own melodies, to sing my heart out and pour my soul into every song. I became a singer/songwriter, baring my emotions and telling stories through heartfelt lyrics and infectious melodies. And along this musical journey, I discovered a deep affection for music gear that would become an inseparable part of my identity.

From guitars to keyboards, drums to bass guitars, I adore every instrument that comes my way. Each one has its own unique personality, its own voice waiting to be heard. But my obsession with gear extends beyond the physical instruments. I’m captivated by microphones, those magical devices that capture the nuances of every breath, every note. And don’t even get me started on digital instruments and plugins! They open up a whole new world of sonic exploration, allowing me to paint musical landscapes that were once unimaginable.

But music is more than just the gear—it’s the stories, the connections, the shared experiences. That’s why I can’t resist the call of adventure. I hit the road, armed with my trusty guitar, ready to spread joy and connect with people from all walks of life. Whether it’s performing on street corners, jamming with local musicians, or serenading a crowd in a bustling café, there’s an indescribable magic in those moments. Music becomes the universal language that bridges gaps, transcends borders, and brings people together in harmonious celebration.
