Improvisations
« on: May 30, 2021, 06:52:46 AM »
hello music lovers
I live as free travelling street musician with flute, drums and others
travelling spain and other mediterranean countries.
unfortunately I dont have an own piano which reduces my time on other peoples pianos
to some hours per year so please excuse if I am not so well trained, it will get a lot better now!
Here my first piano improvisation/playing after over a year of no playing piano
&t=133s
some minutes later


have a nice day

Good morning,
its beautiful my life as street musician, so much freedom, feels like being a king, especially as I can play for free most of the time cause I try to organize my life needs- basically food, shelter and some other little things, otherwise like by doing a lot of recycling and gardening in abandoned places. Lots of other creative stuff like land art, production of medical plant products and art.
I try doing all I can to be able to play for free for the people out there. When I see other street musicians in a place I move on.
As I play mostly in small places and villages, without asking money,
later the people help me with the things I need.
When you do travelling a lot and go to small places and do free work for the people there like music, cleaning places, making places more beautiful that have been polluted before,
people generally help you with all you need and you make many interesting contacts.
This style of life is so great for me that I would not exchange it against a life even in the worlds most beautiful castles, no way, I prefer infinitely my free life and would not give it away especially not for any big amount of money or material stuff.
Knowing about healing myself with medical plants and meditations and such and doing a bit of gardening in abandoned places helps get rid of basic fears.
Back to topic:
this demands also big sacrifices and that means that sometimes I dont get to play a piano for months or even years more than a few minutes or hours per year.
So I learnt to play flute and drums, thats what I play when travelling.
But for every "big" thing I sacrifie, for this life, destiny gives me beautiful moments, things and other, at least one hundred times as big as the things I gave up for the sake of freedom, love and beauty.

all my best wishes from Gemany/Spain
