Artist Statement

“ 7 is a spiritual number. In ancient times 3+4 were considered respectively as the symbols of male and female. Their addition represents a whole. In the beginning God created 7's. After 7 days, the world was complete. The Pythagoreans considered it as the number of cyclic perfection, geometrically associated with the circle. The number seven also deals with magical forces, with mystery and the focused search for esoteric meanings. It is furthermore related to the activation of imagination and manifesting results in our lives through the use of conscious thought and awareness. My entire artistic career is based on a deeper meaning of number seven, intended to be the guideline that permits the spread of positive messages through new visual music. It owns the property of consciousness in my dreams, it is illusory and contains the veils that must be uncovered to reach the final Enlightenment...”. I conduct my loyalty to it and art, as the greatest vehicles to awake people, to generate new questions, bring the systems we are living in into question or simply open new discussions on life. The music in my works is very zen and almost stripped down to the backbone to underline this. As a dreamer, an intellectual exploration of the obscure starts at the very beginning of each work, meaning the majority of my visual works are black. This is both represented in the dark sounds that I produce and “design” and in the related paintings or sculpture that I usually create in parallel. New instruments may be created: sometimes they might become sounding-sculptures. As a seeker, thinker and researcher of truth, I know that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions. So my work invokes deceptive sounds with different origins. They are both instrumental and real, in order to evoke images in the audience's minds by generating inner conflicts. Everything stems from the environment and can be seen as a sound container which enables us to share the artist's vision of a dream space. We therefore attempt to gain a deeper understanding and a more meaningful knowledge of the UNI'°7ERSE..."
