life purpose statement

  1. Performance & Composition: strive to bring a number of musical ideas to consciousness as faithfully as possible, structure them into tunes and compositions, and in turn materialize those works into recordings and live performances made available for the enjoyment and nourishment of all souls who may wish to be exposed to them;
  2. Practice-Based Music Research & Ethnomusicology: focus on the oneness of all music and show that all forms of human music making from around the world, regardless of however different they sometimes may seem on the surface, are in fact deeply connected.

These activities shall be carried out in a spirit of respect, preservation, and celebration of all the beautiful traditions the world still has to offer today, despite the frightening pace at which many of them are being extinguished to the benefit of our technological society.

The main purpose to which I will continue to dedicate my time is thus, hopefully, to inspire and encourage you – and all fellow human beings – not to succumb to the plague of conformism hitting humanity in the 21st century.

🙏 Many Thanks To… 🙏
