Morin chuur - the Mongolian horsehead violin:
my instrument for a picturesque music portrait of a unique nomad culture
The centre of the project builds the so called "horsehead violin" like it is played in Mongolia. For me the horsehead violin represents the essence of Mongolian nomad culture, the way to communicate with music and its special connection to nature. The wisdom which still lays in this way of living i want to make "audible" - as inspiration for a general more sustainable life in our society.
Therefor i am planing to live about half a year with a nomad family northwestern of Ulanbator and learn to play the horsehead violin during may stay. Own paintings and music inspirated by old Mongolian music and developed authentically in harmony with Mongolian steppe will build the frame for concerts with other musicians in Germany.
