EWIAN ~ The Final Breath [Official Music Video]

XI ~ The Final Breath

Ewian looked back on his life. The memories of the INCEPTION were almost completely faded, only the feeling of innocence was still present.
It was this sensation as a child that gave him the courage to embark on a journey INTO THE UNKNOWN in order to find a relic that should free every living being from suffering. Years later he found it. The moment between the relief and the dark premonition that he had been away too long – the INTERLUDIUM – hit him unprepared.
Unwittingly he had opened the BOX OF PANDORA – and the price of the long absence was the birth of a second self.
From then on both parts fought for supremacy. This inner conflict tore him apart. The voices in his head, both THE SWEET ONES and THE EVIL ONES, were strong in those days.
It took another while until he realized that this brokenness also offered potential.
Thereupon Ewian created the VAST, a Visual Audio Sensory Theater, inspired by the beauty of the connection between music and mathematics, modulated by the pure, unaffected mind which was still present from the INCEPTION.
The VAST was the key to change. He learned to accept himself with all strengths and weaknesses, and he learned to esteem the inherent uniqueness of himself and all other creatures.
Encouraged by this insight, he was carried away by the notion of love as an abstract concept – an unconditional acceptance of things.
In order to achieve this, it had been necessary to detach himself from his present self awhile. It was necessary to DROWN TO LIVE. And he DROWNed.
Separated from his former self he drifted in the VASTness, imbued with a feeling of endless silence and mere peace. The BEAUTIFUL LIE about the old world vanished – it was a SALVATION.
Freed from this lie, he was ready to unfold his full potential to create a new world without sorrow, death, doubts and limits. A life without deficiencies, a LIFE which was UNCUT.
He felt so cared. With every second he forgot more and more his old world in the same vein when he started his journey INTO THE UNKNOWN as a child. But this time it was different.
He had total control about this realm and it gave him a feel of unrestricted power. The laws of the universe known to us were not valid here.
Ewian probably would have stayed there forever if he had not heard a strange voice from afar one day. It was like the singing of a Siren – inescapable.
The only chance to find out the origin of this voice was to leave his beloved realm. So he took a FINAL BREATH and DROWNed again to LIVE.
When he returned anew to the world of lie, Ewian was angry. The time of endless creativeness was over and he was not sure if there ever would be a way back. His PARADISE was LOST.
To this day he did not know where the voice came from, but he was infinitely grateful to her.
It had helped him out of his delirium and catapulted him back into real life. Ewian knew he would never be able to bathe in bliss forever again, but he was just grateful for every second of it.
Henceforth he could see and feel it everywhere in the small things of life.

And so it ended. We are in the here and now with this story. My story. I feel ready for the final step – whenever it may come.

Throwback EWIAN

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.

 

Ticket From Kingdom Come – Video

Our first video of our upcoming album ‘We Need Monsters’ (6th November 2015) is out now!
The song is called ‘Ticket From Kingdom Come’:

We shot in an abandoned house this summer in a small-town in germany.
We´ve been seven? times up there and at one point I thought it would be a good idea to shoot alone and make some experimental shots. This will be a lesson for me! I underrated the massive heat, passed out and woke up in my own vomit. But don´t worry, the scene is not in the video, I even never saw it for myself because I deleted it instantly.
This video deflects from our former kind of video making, because we focused the first time the band, not the story.
But it definitely has one – which one, is up to your discretion.

Enjoy.
