Short documentary: Living with the Spirits

Jörg Polzer from Berlin filmed and produced a short documentary in which I speak about my work and my relationship to shamanism. Céline Baron and Stephan Mante were so kind to make themselves available and share some of their experiences and point of view as well. The days of chaos in which my Berlin home was sealed off from all daylight and rebuilt as a studio were worth it: I am happy with the result!

Track of CD Athalbero: Birthing the Ancestors

In January 2017 my new CD Athalbero was released. I asked video artist Ceven Knowles to make a video for one of the tracks: Birthing Ancestors. Ceven used the old Nordic practice of skrying as inspiration: laying down on the earth, watching the clouds part and let yourself be drawn upwards in the sky to find information and communication with the spirits. Watch and enjoy it here.
