Music is nowhere - Music is now here


"COFFEE & KONNAKOL"

I have actually been inside a MR scanner visualizing KONNAKOL at Århus university hospital (DK) some years ago. The brain doctors involved in that experiment called me, to my big surprice, a "master of meditation". I am really just a curious student of what I call “music” and so lucky to be proffesional.

What I DO know is that Konnakol is as important to me as my morning coffee. I need a little dosis every day to make my brain wake up.


Crazy enough, I was the first person in the world to post KONNAKOL videos back in 1996 on a website. When YOUTUBE arrived, almost 10 years later, I reposted my videos there.  I felt like a "half musician"  until 1993 where I found "IT"  KONNAKOL. But I needed to translate & digest this information because I saw a much larger perspective in KONNAKOL.  Today, so many years after my mission started, you can find thousands of KONNAKOL videos online and a new generation of musicians shows their skills and creates amazing konnakol full of mathematical ideas! 

But I think there is a much deeper perspective to this old south Indian rhythm langauge than all of that, music is just a by-product.


We all pretty much know how to eat well and work out. Perhaps we can cook our own food & run a marathon. But how do wee feed and maintain our minds?
I think a lot of people could benefit from learning Konnakol. Both musicians and specially non-musicians. Singing math rhythms is meditation, science & art.


"STRENGE TIDER"  WTF variations + OMG variations  24 guitar solos

I wrote this guitar music to educate myself and break all habits in search of something new to play! I was - like many guitarists - trapped in a mindless routine and could not develop new ideas. So I decided to spend two years researching, composing and mapping all my theoretic ideas, techniques & inspirations in such a way that each composition represents a study, a vehicle to explore new sonic territory. "WayToFly OnMyGuitar" (WTF variations + OMG variations) is my complete study of Intervals, harmony and rhythm. In a way its also a portrait of my career, a musical journey through 4 decades and most continents. Both WTF + OMG variations are released as sheet music + guitar tabulature and avaible in my webshop.

You can listen to some of the music here on my website or check them all out on my YOUTUBE channel.
