3.2.2024 - One of my priorities when composing is that each song is a unique "being" with its own developed character 🌹🌺🌸🌼, with whom it is possible to establish communication while listening and get to know it in depth 💗
By Empty Room is one of those where I feel it has a particularly strong unique character. Have a nice listen 🙂
19.1.2024 - This song is close to my heart ❤️ and has helped me through a very difficult period in my life. Even though I composed it back in June 2020, only as the third one in a row, I immediately knew that it would be the closer of the album. Namely its finale spoke to such depths of my soul that I often could not stop playing it over and over again, sometimes even over a whole hour, dance to it, let the raw primal energy 🔥⚡️🌪 that was awakening in me pass through my body and let it do the healing 🌿
Not long after, the vision came how to extend this finale and engage the whole audience in it, when the time to play it live will come. I am very happy that in a few years this vision came to life 😊
12.1.2024 - Improvisation reminds me of the unpredictability of life, that's why I like it so much and I want to develop it more and more 🌱🌿🍀 It requires not getting stuck in "mistakes" and how "it could have been better", but having the courage to let the body communicate unexpectedly and spontaneously, where the wind blows 🍃
Like life, it certainly does not bring certainty that it will work out, but it brings the intensity of a new experience, and in such moments often arises something magical in the present, which simply cannot happen any other way. According to the feedback, this particular one came out well 🙂
So enjoy it like I did 😊 You can also look forward to the track Realm Of Mystery with choirs reworked from synthesized to recorded by live people 🗣🎶 They really added a lot in my opinion 💚💜
5.1.2024 - There were two songs that spoke to me that they wanted to be faster live. The second one is Spirit Guide, which is different from previous version not only with its more nimble speed ✨, but also with its slight rhythmic improvisation 🎸
1.1.2024 - Happy New Year 2024! 🎉🎉🎉
On this occasion, it was thematically fitting for me to make your start of the year more pleasant with song Tale Of The Phoenix. Let the burning and processing of the old unpleasant experiences give birth to the new, that will bring you spark and joy to your life 💛🧡
27.12.2023 - The track Storm Horses 🐴⚡️ is bold and the heaviest on the album. When practicing for the concert, I felt that the three storm horses Anger 💥, Perseverance 💪 and Enthusiasm ❤️🔥 were strongly asking to gallop a little faster live, so I agreed and slightly sped up the song 🙂
22.12.2023 - In this time before Christmas, I decided to make your evening pleasant with the song Migratory Birds Fly Back Home 🐦
It's the second song I composed for the album, but it probably went through the most changes before I was really satisfied with it. However, it seems that only live performance was what brought it to its full potential, because for no other song have I heard from so many people telling me how, although it didn't impress them so much on the album, it was surprisingly one of their favorites live 💙💚 Enjoy 🙂
15.12.2023 - Part of Hear The Colors project is also my color theory of harmony, on the basis of which the songs on the album were created. Although I composed them primarily on the guitar, after the album was finished and I also finished the application that helps to compose with colors 🔴🔵🟢🟠🟡🟣, I created a minimalistic alternative version of the album in this application as well.
The basis of its practical use is the possibility of exporting to MIDI, so that the results can be used in any music creation program, and thus the album ♬♬ Hear The Midi ♬♬ was created, where I assigned one or two instruments to each song, which play together purely just the output from the application without any further adjustments.
One of my favorites from this experimental mini-album is the pair of songs Deep Feel Cave and Rewilding Of The Heart 🧡❤️, so I decided to make this video clip of them played in the Hear The Colors app so that this aspect gets a little more attention 🙂
🔴🔵🟢 Here you can try out the app or play more songs 🟠🟡🟣
10.7.2023 - On the occasion of my birthday, I decided to release the complete concert Hear The Colors - Live In Workshop for all of you 😊
You already had the opportunity to see many songs from it as I was publishing them gradually, but firstly there are 6 more songs here that have have not been published until now, including "Rewilding Of The Heart", where you can also sing live with me 🙂 And secondly, since it is a concept album with a story, this concert as a whole takes on a new dimension, which individual short videos lack.
In addition to YouTube video, there is also available an audio version of the album for download.
5.5.2023 - 💚 The Great Vision 💛 is the song I'm most proud of so far. When I composed it, my goal for it was to be epic, intense, diverse and one of the highlights of the album, but at the same time not to have a second over what it needed.
Playing it live is a challenge for me, but it's definitely worth it! 😁
6.4.2023 - Spring is approaching 🌼 and even though the temperature outside is not quite there yet, here is the song The Morning Sun as it brings its pleasant warm rays 🌞 and joy to people again 🙂
25.3.2023 - Playful Journey is one of the shortest songs on the album but it uses its length to the full potential and as its name suggests, it constantly develops, progresses and takes the listener on a varied journey 😊 It's also very upbeat, that's why it's also one of my favorite live songs 🙂
17.3.2023 - To OPEN MIC Bratislava in February came also The Grumpy Wizard.
12.3.2023 - Dance Through Life was the song that began it all when I composed and recorded its first demo version on May 4th 2020 with which came a huge surge of inspiration for whole album and project. Its strong temperamental 🔥 energy also kicked off my first public concert. Enjoy your dance through life! 🙂
26.2.2023 - After a certain time since processing the series of live performances from the workshop, I decided to publish one more song. It’s the energetic and waltzing The Grumpy Wizard, in which the first significant tension point is happening within the story as the main character finds himself in freezing blizzard 🌬 and later meets the wizard in his frozen hut ❄️.
I enjoy playing it live a lot and I like its extra raw and wild flavor it takes on in this form.
14.1.2023 - Final song from this batch of sharing is also the final song of the concert. By Empty Room is special because I composed its original raw version thirteen years ago, when I was only starting playing on guitar.
I had no idea how interesting its energy will end up until I reworked it to its new form one year ago and here it is in live setting where its energy radiates in different shade once again.
It fit wonderfully into the story, where Phoenix encourages me to unfold my passion for music ❤️🔥 and share it live with people as well. This completes the circle in the story and now in material realization too 🙂
6.1.2023 - Walking down a path in town with music in the ears. Intense experiences, that have to be processed. Brisk pace, difficulty of physical world, but maybe also glimmer of its meaning?
That’s the song Evening Town Walk, to the energy of which contributes the live audience as well.
30.12.2022 - At the end of the year 2022 and with the arrival of the new year, a reflective, slowing down song Deep Feel Cave came to me as suitable. It points to the meaning of darkness ☯️ in the world and our lives, and in the end of the song, after fully accepting this aspect, comes a deep pleasant relaxation 😌
23.12.2022 - Today, one day before Christmas Eve, it seemed fitting to release song A Day 🙃
Even though it is not Christmas song directly, it’s about appreciation of the harmony of nature 🌲 and simplicity 🌿 during one "ordinary" day and about human closeness and connection during such common day. Therefore it fits thematically indirectly.
It’s also another song, that gets extra alive when played live as the intro solo is improvised.
I wish you all happy holidays and pleasant days! 🎄
17.12.2022 - Live versions of the songs are getting different feel and atmosphere not only because of enthusiasm from live playing and diving into waves of the present moment, but also because in many places it leads me to improvisation in terms of rhythm, preserving mostly only harmony from the original. In this way something new and unexpected may be born each time and I enjoy that a lot.
This is happening the most in the song Spirit Guide. Therefore it is one of those songs which gets extra alive when played live.
10.12.2022 - This recording of the opener song Tale Of The Phoenix is special as the camera managed to capture Phoenix, who I call in by music, how he permeated into our physical world for a while 🙃
2.12.2022 - I decided to insert solo improvisation into the middle of the concert so each one will be unique. The improvisation then naturally leads into the atmospheric song Realm Of Mystery.
Therefore in this live recording they are together. I wish you a pleasant and intense experience 🙂
27.11.2022 - Watch the first live recording of the Hear The Colors song: The Morning Sun
