|Rising Star's musical vision:|
Rising Star has been working with synthesizers and electronic music since 1978. He uses a wide variety of electronic instruments and synthesizers of many different technologies, but also uses many natural instruments like native american flute, rainstick and bells.
Star presents a completly original and innovative approach to sound , composition and music:
Star composes, performs, and records completely live, straight from the moment, without the use of pre-sequenced or recorded materials. This gives his work a unique lively-organic and natural quality rare to be found.
In oposition to conventional music, Sar's work bases on energetic sound fileds, their complexity in dimension and transformation over time.
Star loves recording sounds from nature as these elements offer naturaly harmonic essence from which to create his work. Many of Star's nature sound recordings are
recorded binaural (full representation of the 3 dimensional sound space).
Almost all synthesizer patches and all samples are custom created and come from Stars own sound design. Star modified several of his instruments and custom designed several interfaces and devices.
Star has a background in electronics, engineering, sound design and multi media and has a long standing interest in how sound eneergy enhances our awareness. Stars main focus and intention with his creation though, is less an exploration of technology, but to create sound experiences for daily life situations that explore and challenge how we see, perceive, and understand reality.
Star's intention in his work is the exploration of energy, which he thinks to be central essence of all existence. Transformation of energy shapes reality. Star's main interest is in how to direct the flow of energy in our lives, coexist with it, and shape it by means focusing awareness and by conscious decision. To offer a tool for more awarenss on how to create ones own experience with more contiousness is the purpose of his creating.
|What is the essence in Star's music?|
|Nature sound reflects natural energetic patters. Today, in our subcontious sonic 24 hour a day - life experience, these patterns are often completely overpowered by human made vibrations. The motor of air conditioning, fridge, computer, cars, TV, radio and others of our machine domainated world, to name a few.
The nervous system is the central integral conductor of energetic patterns in the body. To work at optimum and in harmony this system should resonate with natural patterns of energy. The definition of the outer world happens through stimulation of the senses. If senses are continously stimullated with dissonant patterns of energy, stress results as higher levels of awareness start fighting these vibrations instead of resonating with them. On an energetic level these conditions are described as overstimmulation. This results in lack of depth in awareness and energetic disconnection from the world. Soul, and body experience lack of rest, creating "fear" thus weakening the basis from which to exchnage energy with the universe in a healthy way. Longer term results are weakeneing of the body resulting in expression of sickness. This is simplified, more complex factors are involved, but illustrated here to pin point basic concepts of wholisistic well being.
Stars sonic works atempts to provide two essentials: Naturaraly harmonic patterns of energy and it attemptsto reduce stimmulation by avoiding musical themes and generated timing. This to aid return to ones own inner patterns of energy thus a return to ones natural state of being. A rejuvinating experience is acomplished.
Some of Star's music include Star's own binaural sound and nature sound recordings. This provides a natural representation of the original sound condition as perceived in the environment it was recorded. Use headphones to experience nature sounds like waterfall, river or rain in astonishing realism. You might find this to be the closest music to nature representation you might have experienced so far.
Rising Star does not push nature sound into the background to play another layer of human made sounds on top of it, like many currently popular composition do. Star integrates nature sound for its own vibration bases his composition on these complex patterns to create an overall cosmos like energy pattern and sonic texture. Thus his recordings feel like being right out there, in nature. Natural sound experiences are in short supply these days! "It's offten very difficult to recod more than 10 minutes of uninteruppted nature sound"
|What is the "Star" difference?|
|Star's music is quite different from other music.
It's unobtrusive background ambiance
It is pure in energy. It provides a serene, peaceful ambiance that inspires and reaches deep, there to create a space in your environment for you to breathe and relax. It contains no rhythm. Melody is sparse. This music bases on the energetic composition like the composition of pure nature sound. Feel as if you are out there somewhere, or on vacation while you work, relax, receive a healing or meditate. Electronic sounds and nature sound blend into a lively natural and organic texture, weaving expansive sonic landscapes.
Be highly inspired, touched, and deeply moved sound experiences that reach deep into inner, outer, earthy, and galactic realms. Each of Stars releases is a distinct and complete journey created for a specific experience.
