German multi-instrumentalist and producer, The Micronaut has made a name for himself through his richly textured and enthusiastic compositions. This summer, The Micronaut releases ‘Olympia (Summer Games)’ – an album which continues to draw on his elaborate production style as well as on the values of camaraderie and solidarity of the Olympic Games, despite this year’s postponement of the event.
The track’s video features Anne Sauer of the German national fencing team. The track starts off with a focused soundscape over a rhythmic beat, reminiscent of a heartbeat, as Sauer is seen preparing and getting in the zone for a match.
Said The Micronaut: “The video for ‘Fencing’ was already done, when the Olympic Games got cancelled in which Anne would have participated in… I am also very proud of this video because I made it together with my wife Saskia. ‘Olympia’ means more than sports, its about camaraderie and solidarity, no matter the color of your skin or where you come from.

It’s finally happened. My second single „Fencing“ from my new album, was released today. This track means a lot to me. A fragile tragedy, gripped by wanderlust and the longing to arrive. It is all very exciting and I am glad to share this feeling.
