I consider”Face the Fear” as a Project Song.
It’s not a just a song for me, the theme of fear is interesting me very much, I find it is very actual, connected with our contemporary.

This song started almost 3 years ago during a collective dance-music session with amazing dancers and musicians; it was an extra party after the In-touch contact festival in Berlin in a kneipe in Neukolln, can’t forget that night!
I think i never saw again in my life so many dancers and people dancing and improvising together with so much energy, our music was really much influenced by that.
It’s still vibrating with the memory of that body-groove…

Now it became for me a field for a research project, i want to complete this song after beeing in contact with as many artists and people, to discuss the argument of fear on his different prospectives; I will take my time to arrange a new version of the song in the next future, taking influences from everything i will received.
I feel, also, a new part with multilanguage voices will come in a certain point of the tune…(min 3.20)
I’m investigating about the theme of Fear with different disciplines artists, I want to ask philosophers and scientists or also random people their thoughts, feelings about Fear, in order to be inspired.
The different contributes and performances i receive will be shown on a blog in my website.
My idea is to have 6 months of research and study, travels and meeting to produce a final version of “Face the Fear”.
I don’t have a budget to make the project really active…so much things to buy(from a new camera, smartphone and mics to document, and a big harddisk…and collaborators to pay)
Please DONATE and SHARE if you like this project!

(Senegalese proverb)



Face the Fear
in your Bones,
You can't control.

Face the Fear
in your Mouth,
can't control
all your Words

all your Fears,
let your Soul
ride the Wave.

Face the Fear
in your Bones,
You can control.
