Next Station: Visual Vision & of course – more music
I’m an Essen based artist here to share my varient projects and art with you. I have worked in the music industry in many different capacities over the years, but lately as a versatile musician, singer, visual artist and voice performer. My approach to creating music has always been quite hands on given my experience in various cross-over projects, which has led me again and again to new places emotionally. While I continually develop my own passion projects, I also spend my time assisting other musicians in the process of their own creative ambitions.
Through my wedding duo company (Hochzeitssänger Live) I have been fortunate to have taken part in the realization of so many different ideas and ceremonial concepts of music. With my classical instrument, the bassoon, I continue to walk on courageous paths between classical music and pop inspired sounds. To establish the classical bassoon in a key position when it comes to wedding music – this has never been done before.
At the moment my time is split between my next visual/media project, my company, voice & sound performances, studying at university and of course – more music!
What excites me most about creating music today is that we as artists have the ability to create exceptionally high quality content without dependency of companys – simply by harnessing the power of the tools we have at hand, and gaining the knowledge we need to make the most of them. This is the way of a creative entrepreneur (= creativpreneur), the way of the artist today. There lies great power in this kind of independance. With today’s tools and resources at our fingertips, the potential for expressing music and art is limitless.
I always act with deep faith in my creative intuition, combined with fundamental knowledge and ability. I am thrilled that I have found various paths to express my devotion and ideas in artistic ways.
To see how my projects come to life with lots of love and dedication – thats freedom to me.
I am excited to continue on this journey with as many of you as possible.
Once again, thank you for visiting and I hope to see you back around here soon.
