mother-of-pearl

 

In the album "Endless Azure" was each piece like a painting. Here, each title tells a story with various scenes. Therefor I used much more instruments. At the recording I often needed more than 20 tracks.

I live in a city at the border between France and Germany. Here you go to France to buy a baguett for the breakfast, or go shopping to Germany if you'd like to have something for your garden...
The album really crosses the border between various music ganres - while you are listining you cross from a genre to an another one, like in my city...

Mother of Pearl

- Crossing the border between world music, jazz and rock through the Silk Road -

riad

If you are fascinated by oud, this album is just the thing for you. I choosed the best oud music from the albums "Les Deux Reines", "Endless Azure" and "Mother of Pearl". I assembled the recordings with few instruments, so you can enjoy the "oud". The first track acoustic version of "Mother of Pearl" is only in this album available ;-)

dream

If you are fascinated by lute, this album is just the thing for you. I choosed the best lute music from the albums "Les Deux Reines", "Endless Azure" and "Mother of Pearl". I assembled the recordings with few instruments, so you can enjoy the "lute". The first track acoustic version of "Inori - Prayer" is only in this album available ;-)

reines

Pontus de Tyard (French poet in the 16th century), describes about the playing of the lute player Francesco da Milano (extract):

… with such a ravishing skill, he transported all of us into so pleasurable a melancholy that - one leaning his head on his hand supported by his elbow, and another sprawling with his limbs in careless deportment, with gaping mouth and more than half closed eyes, glued to those strings…they remained deprived of all senses save that of hearing, as if the spirit, having abandoned all the seats of the senses, had retired to the ears in order to enjoy the more at its ease so ravishing a harmony…as if we had been elevated by an ecstatic transport of some divine frenzy.

After my concerts I get many similar feedbacks like: "Your lute relocates me to another world!", "I was just in the garden of Babylon!" or "After you played only some notes with your oud, I really saw Sahara…" It might sound unlikely, but after almost each gig I receive feedbacks of the kind. I hear that the audience experiences something special and it gives me courage to continue my works. The concept of this album came up also from this fact...(to be continued)

troubadour

The title "The Troubadour and the Knight" has various meanings. They are e.g. the both main instruments of this album - lute and flamenco guitar. It means also the composition technique I use. I used often two or more different, contrasting technique like modern, uncommon modulation (changing the key) with basso continuo form the 18th century, or the tender sound of the lute with the octatonic scale which beams archaic energy etc. I'd like to express my attitude toward music and art, that is to say the loyalty to beauty and art. Apropos the most Troubadours were even Knight.
