Multiple Streams of Creativity

Both Wasili and I have been working on several projects. The mixing part of the sea-and-landscape album I’m doing with Dronny Darko is almost finished. I’m really taking my time for this because I want it to exactly sound like I envisioned. It’s such an exciting project with so many elements in it that it’s sometimes a challenge to make them combine eloquently. Meanwhile I’m working on a solo album as well. Or maybe two. The whole process of being creative and at the same time capturing those ideas and making them tangible, is different every time. Right now I’m in a super creative phase and finishing stuff just needs to wait then. The importance for me to give expression to my creativity is absolutely vital to me. I feel like it might be my number one priority in life right now. It’s this important because it causes my energy to flow through my body preventing it from getting stuck, helping me connect with my authentic self and helping me to feel sheer passion while I’m fully submerged in the experience. I try to catch what I can while being in this phase and mold it into something that can one day be experienced by many. Every now and then I jot down the ideas that might end up on an album and erase the other ones so as not to get lost in the jungle of sounds.

So what’s in store the coming months? Firstly my guess is that Wasili will finish his album soon. He’s in the mastering process right now. Working title of the album: ‚Destruction/Consciousness’. This one is not for the faint hearted: it might pulverize your ego, if that’s what it’s supposed to do. Below you see a picture of Wasili in his renovated studio.


My own solo project is also steadily progressing with 3/4 of the music being finished. The E-Day album is waiting on the shelf to be mastered (a live gig we did in 2009 at E Day). I’’ll have to wait when Wasili feels ready to take seat behind the controls to finish this one up. And of course Dronny and my album will see the light of day somewhere this year. We’re contemplating if it will be self- released or done by one of the many ambient labels out there. Time will tell.
