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 10th 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. 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!

Experimental: Into Your Birddom (All is Birds) ... Real Birds/Rain/Wind/Vocals/DeerDrum/Synth ...
As humans we descend from many beings ... I am convinced I am a more or less direct offspring of the bird-realm ... harharhar! Not the eagle-stuff though ... guess my forefathers/-mothers were lots of dancing Little Owls mixed with some African Greys, ravens, penguins and hunting kingfishers ... yeap. And there are some tiny wrens hopping and chirping in my veins also ...
So ... my new creation consists mostly of bird-sounds taken from my own field-recordings ... Often birds don't come alone, meaning there is some wind/storm and rain and cracking twigs and wood(s) in there as well ...
Worked over the sounds with synth and effects, also created a "multi" with Omnisphere, which was really fun! Thus, most of the sounds you hear in this composition somehow descend from birds singing and shouting, including my vocals :))))) .... fly along ...
Revised arrangement an' sound .... kicked DeerDrum .... chose "modern" Drums instead ... fits in far better (IMHO) ... different mastering here and there .... just listen yourself :) ... 27th of May 2020.
This is the original version with leadvocals. The revised version of the "Birds and Keys-Remix" you will find on my upcoming album!
