I’m so so very happy that the first video of our upcoming album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ was exclusively premiered by Wherepostrockdwells, one of the biggest Post-Rock channels on YouTube.
The video was produced by Dream-Noise Productions (Post-Production), 3d fractal artist Jaime_M (Fractal animations), and me (Direction).
Thanks a million!
I promised to tell a story with my songs and videos, so this is how it all starts:
I – Inception:
In the beginning there was a soul, once united with the universe like all of us, then divided from the collective and meld into a human beeing.
With every second Ewian began to forget the feeling of beeing unified – but a tiny rest of this sense would survive.
I am happy and proud to hold the 4th EWIAN album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live‘ in my hands after three years of daily work and mental involvement.
As you know I am also working on a video story together with Dream-Noise Productions – the album is going to be illustrated by 12 music videos which will be published month by month. The first one will be published soon.
At the moment I am preparing the digital and physical release of the album, I expect it for June this year.
I am looking forward to this at least for me most important publication!
When a friend of mine showed me a technique a few years ago to record a sound in a way which would create a stronger 3d experience, I knew, I would have to use it on the next album.
To create the sound for the following scene we used my own heartbeart and other body sounds. After recording the single parts with special microphones and a particular position technique, I tried to mix it in a way that represents the atmosphere of the clip.
(from the upcoming video for the song ‘Inception’).
I recommend to use headphones 🙂
I’d like to show you a couples of freeze frames from videos we shot last summer with Dream-Noise Productions in Croatia for my 4th album.
We have been at the place where the original Winnetou movie was shot. I am still impressed by this vast, untouched nature.
On one day we got in the near of a forest fire and used the day after to make some super slow motion shots. Here some stills…
Ashes running through my fingers, in the background burned plants:
Croatia, the vast land where Winnetou was shot in front of me:
The day after the forest fire, me sitting between the burned plants on an ashy ground.
I wish you a magical new year.
Dear subscribers, fans and friends,
I am happy to announce that I am working intensely on the 4th EWIAN album at the moment.
‘Of those who drown to live’ will be special in various ways: it will contain 12 songs (instead of 10 like the other albums) and it is the first time that I am going to create an explicit biographical LP. Furthermore, I will produce a video for EVERY song to illustrate the story behind ‘Of those who drown to live‘ – a story of my life and I guess it will have been a huge project in the end.
I am very excited due to the fact that I will reveal much of my myself with this album. But I think after three music albums I am ready to do that.
The stills are from upcoming videos, Thanks for your love,
I´m glad to announce that we are going to perform on Saturday, 9th September in Germany, Mannheim, DANKBAR, (20:00), mainly with songs from the latest album ‘Heart Crash Boom Bang’ and some totally new ones.
If you live in Mannheim or nearby we are looking forward to your coming.
We made a little photo shooting for this concert…
See you maybe.
