Ewian grew up to a young man. He tried to cope with the normal world, but the voices in his head were strong. They ripped apart the structure between his inner cosmos and outer world. One day he decided to leave his home to be alone with his memories and voices.
At the moment when Ewian entered the world to find the relict he opened a doorway – irreversible. He had been long gone – too long. His mind had created a second self. Henceforth the two selves struggled for supremacy.
I found these lovely Behind the Scenes Photos from the Interludium shot. Love the intimacy between mother and son. Thanks to Nataly Zibert for the photos and Dream-Noise Productions for the video shooting.
By the way: I will release the 4th video clip from my twelve-part video story tomorrow.
Looking forward to it!
After three years the boy finally found what he had been looking for. The relict would serve its purpose and reunite his mother and father. Deep inside Ewian knew that he would have to pay a price for having been away such a long time and for using the relict – but at this moment he had no idea how heavy it really was.
When Ewian grew up to a boy he began to think about a possibility to make every living being happy – no one should endure suffering anymore to all eternity.
He decided to start with his very own sister who suffered from ongoing quarrels between her mother and father.
So one morning he woke up his little sister and bid farewell to her. Anna, he said, I have to go on a big journey. It could last years, but I promise to come back.
The he kissed her cheek and started his journey INTO THE UNKNOWN to find an ancient relict – the last chance to reunite his parents.
Thanks to the brave Piet Lori (boy) and his mother Kaja Lori for the endless Greenscreen video sessions.
I’m happy, relieved, proud and somehow wistful to announce that my 4th album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ is out from today!
I’ve produced 12 songs and 12 music videos in the last 2 years (nearly an hour of music) – and went to my limit with this piece of art.
I must admit that I have tears in my eyes now – on the one hand because I am happy about this release, on the other hand because I know that this will be the last EWIAN album for a longer while. After four albums and one EP in five years (not to forget a bunch of music videos) I HAVE to slow down.
I hope you understand that. At least you can look forward to 11 music videos in the next 11 months.
I’m pleased about EVERYONE who buys this record – this is my most personal record and it would mean a lot to me.
You can get it on Bandcamp, iTunes and other platforms.
I’d like to thank a bunch of people who helped me to realize this project:
Nataly Zibert (Photos, Camera, and much more)
Tomasz Alen Kopera (Cover art)
Stefan Pätz (3d-Sounds)
Kaja & Piet Lori (Actors)
Arthur Stammlet & Jaime (3d-Fractals)
Dream-Noise Productions (Video Production),
Em Baker aka PLIKE (Collaboration with the song VAST).
Robin Friedel (Guitar, Bass)
Florian Jooß (Drums)
My fans (Love!)
Thank you for your heartfelt support in the last 5 years ♥
I promised to tell a story with my songs and videos, so this is how it all starts:
Chapter 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 🙂
