the heroine's journey

the interview is online !

What is the best thing that I love about my work?

Composing, making so called sound sculptures. I feel like an artist in an atelier who creates from nothing something. When a new music-piece arises it feels like the ultimate happiness. I really love the creating-process. Collaboration with other artist I find utmost inspiring. I love to share my music with the intent to move the listener. And I love being an indie artist, I am my own boss. I have the freedom to make whatever, whenever I like.

My work is about music &love, so I have the best job ever ; the harp is my heart .. music my passion .. creating something new is the ultimate freedom to express myself. In surrender to the enchanted dance with the strings (it feels like being in trance) i can feel my harp/body and soul resonating .. my breathing is my metronome and guide. Sometimes i live a (day)dream during improv. and composition .. i go with the flow and i have such a strong connection with my instrument. There are these rare moments that i have an overwhelmingly open mind : i feel one with the music as if i am truly awake : i am extremely sensitive, aware and focused at the same time, as if i know what i am doing ― i am also deeply moved when other artists give my music new wings and it touches me to the core when my harp and soul are truly known .. life is good ! read more >>>>>
