About two years ago I wrote something on my white board. I didn’t quite understand back then what it meant but I thought this will turn into something. Always when I entered my studio I saw that note on the wall. It’s strange how ideas come, go and evolve. Some stay some evaporate. Fast forward, one pandemic later, I finally started to develop this thought.
The idea behind 1 Mi2 is to promote empathy in the square miles we live. Personal conversations with people who live in the same square mile as myself inspired new music.
I know that many of our societal problems have deep roots and are very complicated. Nevertheless, I want to send out a positive message and encourage people to chat and listen to each other. Turning these chats into music is my way of having fun as an artist and also preserving them. I see music, or art in general, as a shared part of our human experience, everyone can and should engage in it. In the media we mainly see ‘exceptional’ people doing ‘exceptional’ things but I like to involve people in the creation process and explore their everyday stories to find the exceptional bits in there.
I wanted to kick 1 Mi2 off with 3 songs and now I want to spread this idea across the whole planet.

Please also consider buying the music to support the project:
As with all projects many people are involved to make anything happen. Thanks to all my amazing friends & musicians for plotting along. Love you!
Peace and until soon,
