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!

Music for Film: The Law of Surprise (#The Witcher) ...
It's torture, I tell you! To somehow prevent myself from composing or writing... I try to drown my muses' inputs by watching Netflix & Co ... BUT: The more I watch, the more ideas are coming into my mind, which - once again - drive me to get back to composing ... Of course ... when I try to work as usual, meaning finishing a track without major interruptions to maintain the flow, my spine/arms/hands/legs will strike back on the rest of me in agony ... so, nothing left, except finding some sort of middle path ... that is ... taking a loooot of time for one composition to provide resting periods in between ... oh my Gods, I feel like being 240 yrs old ... or like a prisoner in a cage of pain ... *argx!
The Law of Surprise is a great theme throughout "The Witcher" and my muses did not let me sleep without diving into the matter ... my mind was fascinated by the idea, that there might be some force which can even outwit the Nornir ... on the other hand ... the Law of Surprise might just be another "playing-ground" of the Nornir themselves to get some entertainment aside from spinning their threads on a more or less wyrd routine ....
Remastered 24th of June 2020. This is the original version with leadvocals. The revised version of the Tribal Wyrd Remix you will find on my upcoming album!
