change the music, change the world

New composition


Le Lai de l´Eau

Music is used everywhere to seduce

- by using tastes and emotions.

By "sympathy" one will listen to suggestions with a less critical ear

if the music reminds one of a pleasant feeling.

The reverse is also frequently used.

Changing the music and finding one´s roots can defuse the manipulation.


Le Lai de l´Eau thematizes water as a reflection of these roots,

the video demonstrates a different and original kind of music,

enhanced by embedded ancient wisdom.

Based on 1 x 2² x 3³, i.e. 108,

thus tuned to 432 Hz.

available on all streaming platforms

and Bandcamp

Does knowledge need a diploma to be tasted*?

Multi-instrumentalist composer, I always studied what I need, to apply it immediately.

As official music education is full of holes, after initial experiences with various improvised music styles and double bass studies at the conservatory, I studied the basics of European music, from Plato to Gregorian to JS Bach, and went abroad to compare with extra-european improvisation based music practices from India, Far East, African and Arab cultures.

And discover Unicity.

So, musical meditations, world music, neo-classical, jazz/improvised music, contemporary creation?

Music that develops horizontally in time with few chords, replaced by superimpositions of melodic lines in complementary pulses, on the traditional basis of relationships between numbers and their symbolism.

Practically an anthology of about 5000 years of music history and practices, many modern genres can be recognized in these musical creations, 

which is why they are uncategorizable
