NEW ALBUM “Feeling Like an Octopus”

Fascinated by the magic world of the octopus, I decided to dedicate this album to this archaic creature in a poetic way. The cover of the album is showing a drawing of an octopus from my “intuitive drawings”.
for english translation turn on the subtitles

When I started recording track by track, I felt like I was moving within an open field. With no concrete plan but the willingness to embark on this boundless expanse, I began to work, with full trust in my intuitive power.

The result is a very personal album that directly reflects my presence. I would like to share this adventure with you.

Bedtime Story

BEDTIME STORY is the last track of my new album “Feeling Like An Octopus”. It´s a late night song with a quiet mood, very slow, a little bit like a mantra, turnig around and around and around…take care, maybe you will fall asleep before the track has ended.

Simplicity

Sometimes a drawing demands just a few lines. Stopping the drawing process in the right moment is a big challenge. I like my mosquito, every line makes sense and seems to be at the right place.

I like the idea just using a pencil and a sheet of paper. A simple setting like that opens a lot of space for spontaneous interactions with my creativity. I don´t have to take care of complicated materials and preparations. Just sitting down and let it flow, everywhere, at any moment when i feel inspired.

Video Production: Breath Of Crisis

Wonderful collaboration with artists from Urhof20, an art center in Grünbach/Schneeberg. Improvisation is our main interest, usually performing live. In this case I got the video and created the music watching Bea´s performance on the screen, improvising and recording the track with no overdubs, similar to a live situation.
