about

“For a few years, I’ve had the dream to gather some of my favorite musicians and record in a big, inspiring studio. I was longing to invoke and record the kind of magic, inspiration and spontaneity that we
experience during concerts. Like back in the ‘old’ days, in the last millennium, when there was no way of recording other than playing all together, instead of using an overdubbing and internet sharing process which is so common now in this digital age.

In January 2017, we spent 4 days in Fattoria Studio near Osnabrück, Germany: 6 musicians, a love support team, a cameraman and a sound engineer. The plan was to record both new compositions I had especially written for this project, as well as give lots of room to improvise and create entire pieces out of the moment. The love support team of 4 goddesses was there to support us, feed us, hug us and be there physically inside the studio doing Yoga, Massage and Healing while we are playing. My hope was, in this field of love, magic would happen and divine inspiration would come kissing us.

What happened during those 4 days was beyond all expectations and belongs to my most beautiful and joyful experiences in music and friendship – we became a truly Spirited Tribe. All that these sonic diamonds needed was a little polishing, adding a few voices and extra elements. So much music was recorded in this short time, that it is released on 3 CDs with each a different theme. This album is the first one of the trilogy, with the most delicate, soft and silent pieces put together. All of this was purely improvised, nothing pre-composed. It was born from and can be used for Massage, Healing, Yoga and Meditation. It is Silence Speaking.

The 2nd CD contains the shorter compositions, some instrumental, some with English lyrics or Sanskrit Mantras. Completing the trilogy, the 3rd CD offers long improvised pieces, which build up from very soft to more moving, similar to Sufi whirling music.” Praful
