Singing with artists on records
was a source of joy since I was a child.
Then: the Beatles!
I could not get enough of their music
and their contemporaries´.
When I got a guitar and founded my first band,
I was in heaven.
We copied the music of our heroes
and composed music of our own.
After having finished high school,
I studied Jazz.
I learnt how to play the piano
and some other instruments.
For a couple of years,
I toured and recorded with various formations.
At age forty,
I studied musicology, psychology and American Literature
at the Universität des Saarlandes.
Being a bad sight-reader,
I researched on the subject
and wrote a dissertation on it.
In 2004, I met
Chris Amrhein and Christian Bollmann,
and the world of overtones revealed its wonders.
It felt like being home - and it still does.
Music, sound and rhythm let us feel
what we really are.
Especially overtone music
is very strong in this respect,
because it leads into silence.
Since then, I have been exploring
the world of overtones,
and I love to give concerts and courses.
I also have been meeting
lots of people
who I feel in resonance with.
Thank you, universe!
Let´s continue the celebration of life!
My mother´s heartbeat,
my father´s strength,
my family´s love,
and everything there is.
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach,
Mahavishnu John McLaughlin,
Deva Premal & Miten,
and many more.
Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler
and many more.
My fellow musicians over the years:
Martin and Susan Weinert,
Stefan Engelmann, Jens Neufang,
Avalona Y. Doritz,
and many many more.
too many to mention their names.
Probably I learnt most of what I know
from my students.
Thank you all, and Namasté!
