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 am very very happy about having been honored with a price at the lovely La.Meko Film Festival last Saturday in Germany together with other wonderful films. I am deeply thankful for that. We also had the chance to perform a couple of EWIAN songs.
The video and song is called ‘Into the Unknown’ and tells the story of a young boy who tries to find an ancient relict in an imagined world in the hope that he can use it to resolve a serious conflict between his mother and father.
I´d like to thank the persons who helped me to realize my music video for the song ‘Into the Unknown’: Nataly Zibert, Kaja Lori und her son Piet, Thorben Kraus, Markus Müller.
The video will also be available on my youtube channel youtube.de/Ewianmusic, but it will take a while for reasons I can´t explain at the moment.
I am pleased to announce that one of my next music videos will be shown at International Short Film Festival LaMeko in Landau, Germany on 9th May 17.
Furthermore, EWIAN will perform a couple of songs at the prize giving ceremony on 13th May 17.
Here some stills of my film:
I always wanted to make a video with flowers – and a calm, tender version of my song ‘Beautiful Lie” seemed to work pretty well for that. For that reason, I made tracking shots in bed of flowers in my home town. There is a light floating through it, the main element, its meaning not yet to be revealed, but soon.
So here is my new video for ‘Beautiful Lie – The Salvation‘:
I founded EWIAN on 6th March 2013 by the release of the debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’. Thus a few days ago this project had it´s third ‘birthday’. Since then I produced 26 songs and 8 videos overall. Maybe it´s arrogant to make a throwback by now as EWIAN is still young, but I just feel like doing that. In the next few weeks I will make a post on Twitter nearly everyday and sometimes here on WordPress with unpublished photos and information.
Before I start, I will go far afield to a time before EWIAN.
My first real band was care[le]ss (south germany). The guy on the left side is Maximilian (our ex-drummer), now member of the great Get Well Soon:
Here some more pictures of the time with care[le]ss:
Member of care[le]ss was also Benjamin Lachance. He contributed to the first EWIAN releases (‘We Will Never Grow Old’, ‘Good Old Underground’). On the last photo you can see him blurred in the background.
