Over the past week we got quite a few responses to our latest call for entries on Facebook. I will feature them here on what-ifblog.net to share them with our community.
Hans Mittendorf, artist and composer from Austria, writes us:
“I am always very motivated. I have literally all the time ideas in my head. Since several decades now.
In my studio everything is sorted out to be ready to record. It just takes a few minor steps. When I have allocated sounds to my synth, I just need to press the keys and let the sounds guide me to where they want to go.
Important to me is a life style that aims for ’emptiness’. Once I am ’empty’, it might attract an ‘event’.
My hobby at the moment is to explore our local brook from its spring to where it runs into another river. I have realized, while walking next to it you can hear the music of the flowing water, if you are open for it, open with your senses. There are days, I noticed, when the brook accompanies me with its music. At other times I am too busy with myself to hear its music. That got me thinking.”
Thank you for this contribution, Hans.
I have added a short video from a fascinating volcano valley on the North Island of New Zealand. We spent hours walking this valley and listening to every water, exploring every plant, watching every bird and insect on the way.
