Prof. Dr. Walter Bauer

(retired April 2017)

Latest project (October 2020): song "Imagine" (John Lennon),
played exclusively by NMR-tones (1H, acetone)

Video dedicated to Prof. Dr. Dieter Seebach (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)

Project by July 2020: song "Eleanor Rigby" (Beatles),
played exclusively by NMR-tones (1H, acetone)

Project by April 2020: song "Penny Lane" (Beatles),
played exclusively by NMR-tones (1H, acetone)
and by additional human solo piccolo trumpet

Here is the video of my "goodbye lecture" ("Abschiedsvorlesung") given on July 25, 2017

Here is a new video (2019) of the song "Das Farbenspiel des Winds" - "Colors of the Wind", sung by Regina Klepper. Any other tones are created by the 1H-atomic nuclei of acetone (NMR).

This is a video of the famous song "500 Miles". Except for the human voices and the solo violin,
any tones originate from the 1H-atomic nuclei of acetone (NMR).
Vocal soloists are Regina Klepper, Uwe Gaasch, and Waldi Bauer. The solo violin is played by Martin Klepper.
