About me:
I'm playing Indian ragas on the sitar - an instrument producing a lot of overtones due to the special shape of its bridges and its resonating sympathetic strings.


Christian%20NoconQuantcast
The actual meaning of the word 'raga' (or 'raag', which is the original pronunciation in sanskrit) is 'that which colours the mind' - and in fact to me, playing a raga is like drawing a picture: In the alap, the basic melodic outline is sketched using the various hues of the Indian musical notes (swaras) with the shades of their constantly changing microtones (shrutis). Later on, faster strokes and brushes come into play filling the acoustic image with vibrant excitement.

Additional to Indian classical music I also do fusion projects with other musical styles, e.g. Jazz, Folk, Celtic, Ambient, Drum & Bass, western and middle Eastern classical, Pop, Rock etc.

Hello Christian, Hat etwas gedauert aber ich hab dich nun ,,geadded" wie man so schön sagt. Deine Sitarsounds gefallen mir gut. Und mit Dieter hast Du auch schon was gemacht? Oder kommt das noch ? Jedenfalls kommst Du mir irgendwie bekannt vor :-)
Liebe GRüsse OM NAMAH SHIVAYA HARI OM

Hallo Christian,

vielen Dank für's Aufspüren da wie dort und Kompliment retour.

Liebe Grüße
Robert

P.S.: Stell mir gerade vor, wie dein Instrument verzerrt klingen würde. So ein Strom-Sitar-Solo gab's ja wahrscheinlich auch noch nicht ...

Thank You for inviting me - wäre es nicht schön, wenn wir einmal mit Geige und Sitar zusammen spielen würden?

Viele Grüße aus Melle

Peter
