My dear friend EWIAN is releasing his 4th Album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ is out from today! I love his music and I have supported Ewian evolution here on this Blog from last 3 years! If you like Alternative, Postrock, Ambient music then please go check him out!
I’m happy, relieved, proud and somehow wistful to announce that my 4th album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ is out from today!
I’ve produced 12 songs and 12 music videos in the last 2 years (nearly an hour of music) – and went to my limit with this piece of art.
I must admit that I have tears in my eyes now – on the one hand because I am happy about this release, on the other hand because I know that this will be the last EWIAN album for a longer while. After four albums and one EP in five years (not to forget a bunch of music videos) I HAVE to slow down.
I hope you understand that. At least you can look forward to 11 music videos in the next 11 months. I’m pleased about EVERYONE who buys this record – this is my most personal…
Exclusive New song and Video by EWIAN the song ‘Radioactive Star‘, is also the video opener of EWIAN next Album ‘Heart Crash Boom Bang‘ release is coming soon on March 3rd 2017.

My interview with Musician, Composer, AudioVideo and independent Artist EWIAN CHRISTENSEN.
Today I am very happy to introduce you with my dear friend musician and composer EWIAN from Germany. Some of you that follow my Blog remember last year when I have Featured Ewian. I love his music and often I shared his videos and the release of his latest Album “We Need Monsters”. I also used Ewian’s photos last year to create a first Digital Art Portrait part of my Art concept “When Nature Meet Humans ” Ewian was the portrait #6. A couple of months ago I asked Ewian if he would’ve have been open to do an interview with me. And he kindly accepted! I am thrilled about this and I am very happy to be able to let you know him better through this interesting interview and if you don’t know him and his music, this is an opportunity for you to discover a very talented, unique Artist that has a wonderful soul and a kind heart. His music is not so common and maybe not for everyone but if you like it… you love it! The sound he produce in his music is a sort of unique amazing dreamy music combined with beautiful words in his lyrics that definitely show Ewian intrigued inner soul.
The color digital Portrait above is my latest creation dedicated to Ewian. I used some of the photos that he sent to me for this interview and I created this tri-dimensional metropolitan image that I guess in a way represent Ewian latest work.
Thank you so much Ewian for allow me to do this interview with you and give the opportunity to others to get to know your Art.
Let’s get started! Here there are my five questions:
1. For who doesn’t know can you please introduce who is EWIAN?
EWIAN was founded by me, Ewian Christensen in March 2013 by the release of my debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’ The artist name is an acronym and means ‘Water of life’ in a metaphorical sense. Basically I am an independent artist, born in Latvia and grown up in Germany. Though I release my records (mostly) via Timezone records, my work is not under the influence of any record label, management, or other instances in order to guarantee the authenticity of my art to myself and all consumers. Beside my debut I published one single (‘Voices in your head’, 2013) and two albums (‘Good Old Underground’, 2014; ‘We Need Monsters’, 2015).
I compose and produce all music and videos almost entirely by myself. From time to time, I collaborate with other musicians, so far with Fifi Rong (England, song: ‘When I Was Dead’), Alien Hand Syndrome (Austria, song: ‘Zampano’), Slack Armada (U.S.A., song: ‘Looper’), and at the moment: Plike (U.S.A.,’VAST’).
2. Your music has a very unique sound and style and is categorized as “Alternative, Post-Rock”. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt and inspire you while creating?
Thanks. I already mentioned in other interviews that I just can’t help doing music. The transformation of inner cognitions, ideas, aspirations, wishes, fears and so on into art serves the maintenance of my mental healthiness. Simultaneously, I have the feeling that I can wrap these inner concepts into a shell which could be tangible for (at least a part of) my recipients. And at that point this non-egoistic part of intellectual creation comes into play, whereby I can give something back. The creative process itself rarely precedes the way I expect. Sometimes I work very methodical, sometimes I just have some kinds of scintillation, maybe one can draw a comparison to the work of a crazy scientist.
3. What are you working on right now? Any new project?
Absolutely. You and my newsletter recipients already know that the third EWIAN album is highly likely to be released in spring 2017. As I mentioned above, I am working also on a collaboration with Mad Madam Em (known as Plike) for the song VAST.
And I can say, that’s not all! You can expect more for 2017: a special project, maybe my most costly so far. I guess 2017 will be MY year? This is a screenshot of the video I produce at the moment for the song VAST:
4. What is your creative Dream Project?
To be honest… to shoot a movie.
5. This question is personal and introspective, If you describe or picture your inner soul how will you describe it? And what color would it be?
I guess I ́m a lone wolf of sorts. Furthermore peaceful, queer, and pathetic. My perception is mostly abstract, I firstly see the common features of all things and their interactions, not the differentiating ones. This helps me doing my art, but at the same time it is complicating my daily routine. I am fascinated by reoccurring patterns in nature like fractalistic structures. This mode of perception explains my spiritual vain. I always had a drive for explaining the unexplained and doing things that (apparently) no human else did before. I love to grapple with dystopias and utopias and to become lost in excessive thought experiments. If I’d be a painter, my art would be surrealistic. But I lose the thread, so: The color that would describe my soul the most is definitely a dark blue.
We Need Monsters (LP, Timezone Records, November, 2015)
Good Old Underground (LP, Timezone Records, October, 2014)
Voices In Your Head (Single, Rebeat Digital, October 2013)
We Will Never Grow Old (EP, Rebeat Digital, March 2013)
I hope that you enjoyed my interview and to get to know Ewian please visit his YouTube Channel and hisBlog. Best wishes to Ewian for his new project, can’t wait to see what he is creating! I always love your comments, let me know what you think about this interview, I am sure Ewian would love to read them too!
Have a great weekend everyone!
This is the second day of the World Watercolor Month is very exciting to see how many artists around the world are participating, there are I guess already around more than two thousands members on the Facebook group so let’s keep up with this great challenge.
For today painting I decided to paint a beautiful and elegant creature a “Swan” I love the gentle sweetness that a swan has I always been fascinated by such beautiful creature. I titled this watercolor “Sweet Swan” it also remind me a beautiful song from my friend EWIAN with the same title “Sweet Swan” you can hear it here. I enjoy this challenge and I will do all my best to make the 31 days painting! Cross fingers! 😉
Music is like Poetry on a pentagram words written over musical notes!
Today for the April Poetry Month I like to share the beautiful words written by EWIAN for the song Fragile Ghost included in the latest Album release “We Need Monster” read the lines, listen and enjoy the dreamy atmosphere!
And then we kissed the moon.
Loved us secretly.
I thought I felt ensouled.
I thought I felt alive.
