Tearing through musical landscapes and never arriving! Come on a sonic storytelling trip with me and the wonderful musicians I hand-picked to play on this chamber pop album. We are going to deliver a high-quality mix to do the music justice. For that we need your help! Bonus: there are two epic live orchestral tracks on this album!
These are stories and states of mind I've documented as songs
and orchestral pieces. They are a kind of timeless capsule that
holds experiences and emotions I've gone through.
I was told that music is a luxury, but for me, it is a

wonderful team and the necessary infrastructure to support me in
realising my vision. Some of these musicians have also been with me
along the years, performing these songs to diverse audiences in

The music was recorded with utmost care and perfect acoustics by
our sound engineer, Mr. Trawöger, who will also lend his sharp
ears to the mix. Soon, it is set to be mastered and then printed to
CD for posterity!
Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?
My team and I want to finish production and release an album
that will reach people of different backgrounds and ages, whose
love for music with dynamic highs and lows connects them.
With this release, I will be able to move on to the next goal,
which is to perform these songs to audiences and connect people
from different walks of life in one place.

Brazilian music. I am an independent artist with many hearts (one
for each cultural identity) and when I perform, I try to do my part
in bridging very different cultures. I think it's very important
for us to connect to each other on a human and artistic level at
By supporting this project, you will directly be doing something
for cultural diversity and equity.
