Mathias Grassow - Drones Ambient Music
Perhaps my drones are ‘cosmic downloads’ that contain a certain message – but even if so: if perceived by our ears only, this message does not have the power to change our DNA and open up the way to more profound experiences of our inner self. Such music can, at best, give us a vague idea about who we are, and where our home is. I have the firm believe that if we manage to perceive music on more channels than just our ears – which are governed by our brain with all it’s judgements and categorisations – this will enable us to perceive it on a level which still is beyond our imagination, an expanded perception that might include the relativity of space and time, and the simultaneity of past, present, future, and more …
New: Book Soundtrack "Das Gold Von Caxamalca"
"The gold of Caxamalca" is a six-part own interpretation of the eponymous story by Jakob Wassermann (1873-1934). This book we read in german lessons in the eighth school class. It moves me deeply until today. The musical realization does not condemn, it does not disdain prestige, it does not accuse. It serves the education and the understanding.
Music as a vehicle for education is an important stylistic device for understanding our ancestors - without false pride and prejudice. The colonial era has split our world until today, impoverishing whole continents. We are obliged to look and help.
(From the liner notes, Mathias Grassow)
"The gold of Caxamalca" can be acquired directly via Mathias Grassow's official Bandcamp page.
Mathias Grassow is one the leading figures of the "sacred" space music.
