musical freedom

Musical freedom begins with great hand-technique and that can be achieved by practicing - regularly and effectively. I am happy to have had inspiring and constructive harp-lessons from age 9 -15, a great basis indeed to become a composer and producer with the harp as basis material! #workhardplayhard

As Nietsche said: Life would be a mistake without music. The merits are to me existential. My harp is my heart and a true lifesaver. I am introvert person and I live my life like a hermit so the harp is my soulmate even though we have a love/hate relation at times (laughs) And I have a strong desire to escape reality while improvising to find beauty and consolation. In other words: 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 ... life is good!
