Music – My Interview with Ewian Christensen

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).

Album: 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.

An Unforgettable Star…

I dedicate my song ‘Star’ to Emmanuelle and Carolina and their dogs Eden and Mojo who died recently. I hope they become friends in heaven whatever this is“.
EWIAN

❤ ❤ ❤

Yesterday Ewian surprised me with this beautiful dedication that he posted on Twitter…
Thank you Ewian for such great act of kindness! My heart also goes to Emmanuelle.

Mojo was and is my wonderful and unforgettable Star She was already here when I moved from Italy to California she has been my rays of sunshine through the good time and the bad times she was very special and I loved her very much. Mojo left this world on November 2nd 2014 she was 16 years old.
That day was one of the saddest, when I left the vet office it was raining but after 30 minutes that Mojo left this world something superior happened a beautiful sign from above a beautiful full  “Double Rainbow” appeared in the sky
I guess was Mojo way to tell us that she passed the rainbow bridge and that she was ok and  happy…. ❤

Portrait #6 Ewian

“WHEN NATURE MEETS HUMANS”
Digital Portraits Collection

Portrait #6
– EWIAN –

Today I am sharing with you my New Portrait for this unique Digital Art Collection “When Nature Meets Humans” created out of digital photo-manipulation, each portrait is a blend of multiple photos representing nature and persons. I started to develop this concept about two months ago and since then I created  five unique portraits.

This is Portrait #6 – EWIAN

Last week Ewian was the Featured on my “Weekly Featured Blogs Event” taking place every Saturday, if you missed the post you can see it here.
Ewian is a great music composer from Germany and his beautiful music and videos, inspired me on creating my new Portrait for this unique Collection. A black and white portrait in connection and symbiosis, reflecting  Ewian style and Alternative Post-Rock music.
I used some of the great photos found on EWIAN Blog blended with photos of the “Black Forest” located in Germany. This beautiful forest rapresent the nature greately.
I like to experiment and continually evolve with my Art and creativity. From years I love to work in digital searching and testing new ways of visualization. I love Photography and like to work with photos, manipulating images and transforming them with my personal artistic touch. You can see the other 5 Portraits in a Gallery here.

I love this idea to mix nature with humans and create some unique and very different kinds of portraits…This Collection is created mostly for my own Artistic purpose and to share with you some of my digital abilities.

If you’re interested in purchase a custom and unique portrait like the ones in this Collection you can do it here on my new page Shop Custom Digital Portraits. I will create your own personal and unique custom Digital Art Portrait, for info and details please contact me or visit my new page.

As always I love your comments!

“During this week Ewian discovered my Blog and Followed”
I went to visit his Blog to check it out and leave a thank you note for the follow! I was very happy to see that the Blog was about music, I love music! And lately honestly I can’t find around much of good music to listen. My favorite music has always been Rock, Post-Rock, Alternative, Dark and Experimental. I truly loved to listen to Ewian Music, beautiful voice and underground sounds I am fascinated! Ewian is an intense and kind soul with a unique and unusual name, reading his blog I found out that Ewian means “Water of life” isn’t it a beautiful meaning?
If you like this genres of music I suggest you to visit his Blog and watch his videos you will enjoy it!

I am looking forward to the new album I can’t wait to listen to it…
