In the last couple of years my perception of what music can be has expanded considerably.. to say the least. My latest musical explorations I call Interdimensional Music. Expanding from one single tone into multi layered harmonies - the very sound itself has become increasingly important to me and calls for a whole different kind of presence.. both for myself as I create the music and as a listening audience.
Actually I come from a strictly classical educational environment - where there is a very strong emphasis on practical skill. Today I still agree to the importance of being good at your craft - but what I have come to realize is that not only is the skill important, but the intent behind the music is of the essence. It brings depth and clarity regardless of style, in fact.. in most cases it means everything.
In my opinion.. music is best in "High Definition". The result is often an experience of connecting with something more than our mere physical existence, triggered by the conscious intention behind the sound/music - where being alive becomes "larger than life".
Beyond just shifting a mood, when music goes H.D. - often a doorway opens to other levels of perception, reminding us of dimensions or levels of awareness we have long forgotten. In short - sound awareness is the first step in tuning into a frequency that connects us with who we really are.
Much like poetry works with words put together in specific ways - music too is a synergy of tones, harmonies, melody and feeling. Music is truly capable of opening new dimensions in our consciousness if we are open for it.
So.. for me music and especially singing is much more than entertainment. Actually I always felt that way, but only in recent years I've become aware of this. Music is an alchemy of components with a potential far greater than merely to entertain.
Don't get me wrong - I love to immerse myself in the music, playing in singing just because it feels great.
The joy of being completely in the music can take life to the next level.
And often does. . . ￼( ◠‿◠ )
"Lemurian Home Coming"
When I began creating this music it was an entirely new experience for me. This album contains no instruments - in other words I am singing all vocals, which has given me a freedom to do what I want.
My primary focus has been the sound and it all began with one tone from which the music then slowly emerged.
I'm singing in a language I did not learn in this life - and yet it seems so familiar to me.. as if it would be my mother tongue.
This space is sacred to me. It is where all my music comes from.
