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!

Audio: De Phoenicibus ... Vocals, Modern Concert Flute & Drums ...
This audio is freely based on an old latin text by Isidor of Sevilla, one of the greatest collectors of antique etymologies (560-636). I have chosen the topic of the phoenix as I have always adored the mythological concept of this unique bird ...:
The phoenix is said to become 500 years old. When he realizes, he's getting too old and weak, he collects certain aromatic plants and prepares himself a funeral-pyre, or better said "resurrection-pyre". He lifts his wings towards the Sun and let's Her rays ignite his funeral-pyre. Afterwards he will resurrect himself out of his own ashes.
In memory of the Ancient Ones ... and livicated to all those, who keep on rising anew out of their ashes ...
