Hello dear friends, old ones and new!

With this campaign I‘m starting a co-creative project that has been a dream for a very long time.

By bringing incredible artists together from many corners of our wonderful planet, I´d like to experiment with the dimensions of Sound.

A foundation for this journey will be music that has no particular genre, yet has been influenced by countless travels around the globe, interactions with people from all over, representing all sorts of cultural flavors and backgrounds.

We will begin in a recording studio in Riga, Latvia, with the beautiful name: ‘We Love Sound‘‘. A starting point for a bigger vision to follow and to travel the world with a film and audio equipment capturing the essences our georgeous Planet Earth has to offer.

For the last 13 years I have been journeying with an instrument that became my spiritual guide and a teacher - a practice that could be more aligned with the concept of guitar yoga than skilled craftmanship.

All these years I didn‘ t have a home as a physical strucure anywhere, only from time to time I'm stopping by in places to share, to rest and being creative.

I have played in hundreds of cities, small villages, street corners and concert halls, in front of rich and poor, at festivals and small gatherings. And yet, there is to learn more, so much to let go of, so many roads to explore within.

In music as well as in life, I have been applying and observing the phenomena of structure (I know) and the uniqueness of improvisation (I dont know). This approach encompasses the foundation and freedom in the same time and is making these opposites inseparable.

We can dream the dream, and very often wait for some other force to come, embrace, recognize or discover our talants. And yet, this recognition first of all starts inside.

Many of us have heard this wonderful expression by Marianne Williamson, I wish to quote it once again as a great reminder to all of us of our unique and infinite beauty:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

During all these years compositions were formed and are giving birth to ever evolving and expanding ideas. I have never learned how to compose music by sitting in a room, though I’m experiencing it LIVE…

Every musical short story that comes through me is an interaction with others, feelings, memories, pain and transformation of it all and transcended by sound.

As an example I would take a piece with the title:

"The Song of the Golden Dragon"

It came out during intense 6 months of travelling on the roads of Mexico.

"All I‘ve had was a guitar, an amp and a car. I made a living by playing on the streets and villages, at times I was entering a town and getting on the village‘s stage right away when people had a recognition of a travelling Toubadour. Perhaps one day I can tell you more about that adventure."

Here you can see/listen to a version of 2007 captured in Amsterdam right after that experience:

This one in Landshut,Germany in 2011, that got the biggest attention on the web:

And this version has been recorded in 2013 in Switzerland:

What has been in between is a Musical Journey where all compositions started to form in one… The very result you can see here, it is a composition called “Internal Flight”

Since 2010 I have been involved in a film project called ’Time of the Sixth Sun.” It has been 9 years in the making and is currently at the final stages of its creation. Please have a look at it yourself:

Music has the incredible power to transcend pain, to release old habits, to transform realities and create worlds.

I feel it is time to share, to create, to inspire and be inspired. To reconnect with a true mystery of life that connects us all, that makes our heart sing the songs and dream the world a better place. Isn’t it nice to be in a world in which we can live openly with each other?! Supporting each other’s differences and sharing the wisdom of the ancient ones?!

I truly wish that these songs, melodies, symphonies and films will bring an inspiring message to all of us. As a wise master says: “We are all in this together.”
