Like I have told you guys, I had to undergo another upper spine-surgery on Friday 3rd of July after my stupid fall the week before.
I knew this would be much more challenging than the 1st surgery had been ... . Both implants had to be taken out and be substituted by metal cages, plates and bone-substitutes. My vertebral body had to be restored as well.
Update 6th of August 2020:
I still have problems talking/singing/swallowing/breathing ... will need another check-up on this next week. It definitely sucks!
To cope with all this and distract myself from the current shit-uation in a creative way, I work on my new album "Sounds from Somewhere" which I hope to complete before I have to go to Rehab. Therefore I am in the process of rearranging and remixing some of the latest compositions.
Like in the course of producing my last album ...:
You might not find some of my compositions in this blog anylonger ... Sorry for this, but don't worry ... be happy! I have chosen them to refresh/rearrange/remaster for the upcoming album!
So far, I am really excited ... just have completed a new version of the former "Antares-Soundscape" and it really rocks! Promised!
There will be some completely new stuff as well. Today I have finished the master of my new, nerdy composition "The Dying of Water" (= working title) with my own real water-recordings, Vocoder/Synths, (real) Kalimba/Sansula and lyrics in Kiswahili, the latter being another of my favourite languages ...
It would be great, if you guys could support my compositions and survival with a donation!
More than ever I do not know how to pay my upcoming bills, as due to Corona and my spine-surgeries I was/am not able to perform live-music, -poetry and -rituals nor give readings ... but I do have a lot of additional medical bills to deal with. Therefore I'd be grateful if you could support my album-production and survival!

Let him burn
Flames leap high
Rough times turn
Fuzzy sorrow fly
For Christ we yearn
Pure and sly
He shall die"
(Text taken from Vol. I "The Sorcerer"

"They did not care, when the sky was burning." The Warrioress shrugged her shoulders and carefully took some stubborn ice from the glacier to melt it in her iron-pot.
(Quote Vol. III "The Warrioress"

"It's wise to have a home, when the snakes of fog are on their way and the bull of þorgeir is already pawing with his hooves", she told him and shut the door cautiously.

"I have seen your boat, sailing close to mine, she said. We weren't supposed to cross paths yet. But I know we will in future when our pasts have met." (Vol. III)
