VII – Drown to Live
I’m happy to announce that the music clip for ‘Drown to Live’ (Chapter VII of the video story) is out now on Youtube.
The song is the key track for the album and the most important for me. At a certain point in my life I learned to love myself, and I learned that self-love is important to be able to love others.
I’d like to thank my guys Robin Friedel (Guitar, Bass) and Florian Jooß (Drums) for the participation.
Finally Ewian learned the most important thing in his life: to love himself, and thus, to love others. 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 was necessary to detach himself from his present self awhile.
VI – VAST feat. Plike
In a short moment of bliss and dignity Ewian conceived the potential which embraced his second self. He created the VAST, a Visual Audio Sensory Theater, inspired by the beauty of the connection between music and mathematics, modulated by a pure, unaffected mind.
Chapter V – The Sweet Ones the Evil Ones
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.
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:
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’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.
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,
