not within the ‘educated’ borders and rules to know where and what and when and

I began celebrating 70years....... and am happy to open a (free) download link of "pax deinde venit" (them came peace) which I composed, inspired by the stories of those who survived WWII

(let me know via SoundCloud if you'd prefer mp3 and I'll be happy to convert and upload. This piece is also for piano only and I'll be happy to upload the full piano version in mp3 if anyone is interested)

And don't be selfish, share with your folks.

the joy and energy of a happy child as one can imagine this song is all about is brought over so well with the whole music of human voice and instruments. I enjoyed this a lot!

Some links for limited time free downloads at my SoundCloud still open for the latecomers.... I'll keep those open for a little while longer.
I wish all a pleasant Fall in the South as the landscape is painted with warm colours, and a perfumed Spring in the North. #composer #music

thought to mention it, not ashamed that I can get a bit touchy and maybe angry....
The little tantrum I had one day as afterthoughts washed over me……. NOBODY must dare make rules for my music for it runs free on tracks into the unknown. But I learn this unknown path that music takes me on. BECAUSE ...

Music is an emotional thing
Yes I can cry like a child with music. It is not always happy.... music is part of my life, my heart goes into it and it is from there it becomes audible. I am finalizing a song for my childhood best friend in another "Classical African" album. What I thoug...
