Hello guys! I’ve seen there are a couple more of you than I had expected reading my blog and that makes me very happy. :-) Well, this month I figured I am quite behind with sharing all the good podcasts Ro created in the past, so I thought making this month’s post into an Adventurous Music Podcast Special. So create yourself this fancy salad and enjoy a couple of hours of cool electronica. 

//// foryoursoul >> Have you ever had a tomato salad with peanuts? It’s probably a Nepalese appetizer. It’s a bit spicy and also made with lots of cilantro. And if you don’t like that herb, you can use parsley instead. Either way, it’s sooo good! :-)

//// foryourears >> No. 1: “Adventurous Music Podcast #94 Hidden Vibes” features music from the label Stumm433. 

//// foryourears >> No. 2: “Adventurous Music Podcast #95 Stumm433″ features music from the label Hidden Vibes. 

//// foryourears >> No. 3: “Adventurous Music Podcast #96 Ghosts features music by Nine Inch Nails. 

Well, have a good time and enjoy the fall season! :-)

To my one and only reader! :-)

Or are there possibly still more?

//// foryoursoul >> I’ve had a super delicious potato soup last month. It was vegan with tons of fresh tomatoes and parsley.

//// foryourears >> Francis Theberge’s and Hendekagon’s new release on Adventurous Music is called “Trimmed, Trammed & Truncated” and is really fine & noisy ambient. 

//// foryoureyes >> A couple of weeks ago I felt a huge amount of wanderlust and I wanted to go to Iceland again. But I couldn’t and didn’t and so I took one of my favorite pictures from last year’s visit and created my – I guess – first landscape watercolor painting. 

//// foryourmind >> Following the request of some musicians that came together in the collaboration for Relatives Schoensein, there is now a digital-only release of this book. All the income from this release goes to Firesticks, Amnesty International, Target-Nehberg, Artist Relief, and Campaign Zero. So you get to listen to around four hours of super cool electronica and also give something back. That’s a win/win, right?

Well, these are the new things from this corner of the web. Have fun exploring!

07*20 // Relatives Schoensein

RSBookWeb.jpgHi there, lovers of fine arts and music!

Relatives Schoensein is Ro’s masterpiece that he created over the past twelve months and published this July. Since this book means a lot to me, it deserves the full attention regarding this month’s blog post. :-) It’s as much as all the other things I use to post something wonderful and special for your soul, ears, eyes, and mind. Maybe even more, since… 

Relatives Schoensein is a non-profit art collaboration. The book shows photographs of excerpts of weathered and partly destroyed street art. For each photograph, there is a soundtrack created by a sound artist. All in all, there are over 40 sound artists (incl. Ro and me) from all over the world (including Australia, Canada, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, UK and USA) who have contributed to this project. They are Amby Downs, Black Lung, Carlo Giustini, C-drík, Conure, Coppice Halifax, Desolate Horizons, Dirk Geiger, Elias Zorn, Ezra Fike, Fail, Francis Theberge, Gallery Six, Hendekagon, INYAN, Iván Muela, Jen Kutler, Joe Hassick, Jóhann Eiriksson, Jo Montgomerie, Kareem, Kid Kozmoe, Mai 12, Marc Benner, Matter, Micromelancolié, Nimon, Nyppy, Olan Mill, Sacha Ratcliffe, Salt, Signalstoerung, Sturqen, TBEX, Thedi, The Empath feat. Cosmic Noise Crew, The [Law-Rah] Collective, Veronica Moser, Vrum, Wajid Yaseen, Yann Novak, 16Pad Noise Terrorist.

This book is limited to 100, and there will be a download code for this compilation of tracks within the book. There are still some copies left, so go ahead, get your own Relatives Schoensein, and enjoy the art! :-)

Heho, it’s summer! :-)

//// foryoursoul >> Ro and I came up with this dish by chance – and it tasted sooo good! This combination of sweet and sour and creamy really blew my… taste buds! So it is a sweet potato portobello mushrooms tortilla with classic asparagus and homemade sauce hollandaise. And parsley, of course. :-)

//// foryourears >> Please enjoy (and buy to support the artist) Hendekagon’s latest release for Adventurous Music. It’s called The Dreams I Can’t Remember and maybe is the chilliest and most dreamy sound I ever heard from this artist (a.k.a. Signalstoerung… or Ro). 

//// foryoureyes >> So, back to my personal creative approach. I was asked by some of my dearest friends to join their watercolor club and so I did. Last month’s challenge was ivy. Obviously. ;-) More on this topic coming soon… or already put up on my site

//// foryourmind >> Totally into shinrin-yoku right now. I mean, also in the scientific view of it by Yoshifumi Miyazaki. I always have been a “tree person” but I think nothing can beat being among trees or out in the woods at this time of year, right? These smells, these colors, all those little and not so little creatures! I literally could live there and I am so so happy, that there is a huge chestnut tree already right in front of my window and riparian forest and a couple of parks just around the corner. :-)

Well, here is my tip for your next leisure adventure: wrap up the tortilla, get Hendekagon’s smooth tunes, and go outside to spot some ivy climbing up huge trees!
