TROSTPFLASTER - THE FREE ARTS INITIATIVE

This is a new initiative to support victims of the corona crisis. This is all of us. Art is less accessible at this time, and can be very soothing, so my idea was to send art to those who can benefit from it. There are a thousand reasons why one might be feeling low right now, illness, grief, financial worries, social isolation and many more. I can send a photograph, music CD or a card with a nice message. Trostpflaster is German for small consolation, and this is simply to bring a calm and friendly message that no-one is alone and no-one is forgotten.

Find out more on the Free Arts Initiative page.

If you would like to support this project please go to GoFundMe.

NEW ALBUM

 

An album that was a long time in the making, Glow on the Horizon is now available to buy on this site. I worked with two amazing artists to create this stunning album. As part of a collaboration Karl Sylvester painted the oil painting you can see on the cover. And Kirsteen Davidson Kelly brought her elegant and contemplative piano playing to a recording which radiates calmness and the perfect emotional energy. For the optimal sound we managed to hire the Reid Concert Hall with its amazing Steinway concert grand.

 

To buy Glow on the Horizon go to the shop page.

PANDEMIC EXHIBITION

 

When I saw the city slowly emptying out and turning into a ghost town with no cars and very few people out and about I wanted to take a snapshot of this strange time. This exhibition is exclusive to my website.

 

Go to Pandemic Exhibition.

SUPPORT NHS RECOVERY

 

I am delighted to have my music chosen vor a very special programme which is being developed by Professor Nigel Osborne and his colleagues. Their aim is to use INRM (Innate Neurophysiological Response to Music) to help patients recover after illness. INRM is the science of a subconscious response to music*, and if applied in a focussed way, can help quicken a recovery. Of course, the aim right now is to help Covid-19 patients, who often have been through hellish experiences. We want to help this very special community on their road to recovery : )

 

* Please note that I am not a medical science academic, therefore my explanations don’t adhere to those standards. I am merely trying to explain this in simple terms which even an avocado could understand, should she wish to.

HELLO AND WELCOME

 

With a smile and a wave I'd like to welcome you to my site : )

 

So, what's to say? This site has been in the making for 500 years. Yes, it's true. At least it feels that way, aber hallo! That's German for 'you bet!', just less elegant and more punchy.

 

So, I spent 500 years making music and photos and songs and salad. And all those elements I have now collected for you. Except for the salad, I ate that. All the other things I've displayed across the pages in front of you and you can look at them and then go back to picking your nose.

 

You will find classical compositions, happy rock songs, landscape photography, portrait photography and all sorts of assorted art projects. You will find new things and old things and some things I'm still working on. It's an eclectic mix or a chaotic shambles, whichever you choose to believe in.

 

I wish you much fun browsing and also a very nice day. Goodbye wave.
