Circle of Life
Bernhard Mikuskovics & Markus Riccabona
(Bones & Breath)

CD, IBERA Verlag, 2003 ISBN 3850521672

Price / Preis: € 19,-

-> Amazon

The medicine wheel represents the system of the “4 shields”, the four directions, seasons, elements and qualities of existence as the circle of life. This ancient shaman system has served mankind as a map to explore the inner and outer realms of existence for thousands of years. The music of “Circle of Life“ describes the process of the rise and fall of the rhythm of life.

Musicians: Bernhard Mikuskovics (Didgeridoos, Overtone Singing, Percussion, Jew´s Harp, Overtoneflutes), Markus Riccabona (Voice, Overtone Singing, Sandava, Jew´s Harp, Sound Bowls, Percussion)

Thaluplaces

Thaluplaces
Bernhard Mikuskovics & Wolfdietrich Janscha
(DidjeriDuo)
CD, IBERA Verlag, 2000 ISBN 3850520250
-> Amazon

"Thaluplaces" are energetic and sacred places of the earth. In the dreamtime they have been sanctified by the ancestral beings of the Australian aborigines. Each composition of this recording represents the special talu of an abstract idea and thus will lead you to a special place beyond.

Musicians:

Bernhard Mikuskovics (Didgeridoos, Fujara, Shakuhachi, Percussion), Wolfdietrich Janscha (Didgeridoos, Jew´s Harps, Percussion)

Das Echo des Spiegels

Das Echo des Spiegels
(Bernhard Mikuskovics & Wolfdietrich Janscha)

Buch, IBERA Verlag, 2000, ISBN 3850520242

Preis: € 18,-

-> Amazon

Das Buch zur CD "Thaluplaces":

Die essentiellsten Fragen des Lebens ­ "Woher komme ich?", "Wohin gehe ich?", "Woraus besteht das Universum?", "Warum besteht es?"­ beschreiben nur den analytischen, intellektuellen Aspekt des menschlichen Geistes. Gefühle erscheinen uns oft zu vage, sind aber für ihre vollständige Beantwortung von grundlegender Bedeutung und unverzichtbar. Die archaische Kultur der australischen Aborigines war für die beiden Autoren der Auslöser, sich mit diesen Fragen und dem spirituellen Gedankengut verschiedenster Kulturen ­ und deren Ausdruck in der Kunst ­ zu befassen. Es entstand die Vision, zusammen mit der CD "Thaluplaces" ein ganzheitliches Kunstwerk zu erschaffen, in dem Wort, Bild und Klang zu einer Einheit verschmelzen. Der Entwicklungsroman beinhaltet einen Zyklus von 26 Bildern, verflochten mit australischen Traumzeit-Mythen. Die beiden Künstler nehmen den Leser mit auf ihre Reise in den Ursprung des Seins, lassen ihn den Pulsschlag des Universums fühlen. Sie führen ihn über Traumpfade zu einer Begegnung mit sich selbst, ins eigene Innere ­ wo alle Fragen entstehen und wo auch die Antworten verborgen liegen...

Hallo Bernhard;
danke für deine Veranstaltungsinfo. Im Radio bin ich dabei, einen Newskanal für Veranstaltungen "Woodroot Radio News" einzurichten. Ein Versuch läuft schon, aber muss noch wesentlich verbessert werden; z.B. meine Sprache. Wenn du eine Veranstaltung hast und dazu selber ein soundfile machen kannst, stelle ich es in die Sendung. www.woodrot-radio.eu
Alles Gute - Armin
