Why am I musician?
I wish that I can instigate something through the music, that there is something triggered that goes beyond the listening experience in the concert. Music has this incredible power to promote a more human togetherness. I strongly believe that and I would like to contribute to this with my music.
Culture and art are shaping our society. They can and should also be unpretty and uncomfortable for showing and clarifying actual topics and for challenging the recipient.
As a musician I see this – transferring artistic values into social values in my concerts – as my big mission.
Let’s start writing our own story of success
As Joseph Beuys once said „Everyone is an artist“, I strongly believe that everyone who is in a creative process (e.g. of thinking of a solution for no matter what) is indeed an artist. I want to stimulate this through my concerts, because I think that this point of view can open a lot of initiative and a huge amount of creation potential in each person.
The concert is an open room for social discussions and encounters. A room, in which there should be no differences made between artists and recipients.
We maybe do not have to change the concert, but we have to find a new way of participation.
