"The world, indeed, is like a dream and the treasures of the world are an alluring mirage! Like the apparent distances in a picture, things have no reality in themselves, but they are like heat haze"

The Buddha

JOIN ME SAVING THE MERMAIDS AROUND THE WORLD!

The mermaids are rare and endangered species, they need our care and attention. They love telling old stories from our childhood, and this is what keeps them alive and happy.

Every time someone listens to this mellow piano piece on Spotify or YouTube, one mermaid tells a story and manages to survive one more night. I am striving to save all the mermaids in the world, and I warmly welcome you to join me in this endeavor.

The sun – the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man – burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-colored glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.”

 

― Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

it is her elegance, her magic, her graciousness and charm?

does the Moon take you to the unchartered lands of your imagination, making you hallucinate and travel through space and time? 🚀👽🪐

 

do you feel like in a lucid dream, awakening all of a sudden to the sounds of a very beautiful music which has never existed before and will forever vanish even before your alarm goes off? ⏰

what comes to your mind when your eyes get attracted to the Moonlight in this pitch black emptiness of an early morning sky?

does she carefully reveals your inner child, still looking out the window and dreaming of the golden kisses tenderly delivered by the waves of Moonlight?

I am taking you on a lonely walk across Paris - the city of love,

romance, adventures, and fun.

We will be moving from the quiet beauty of sleepy side streets into the lively area of Montmartre, I will walk you past grandiose Le Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, we will enjoy peaceful splashes of water at the shores of Seine, diverting to the Centre Pompidou to embrace the craziness of the nightlife - all this under the light of the Moon...

... once I was stranded in Paris with a friend with no money to spare for a couple of days. We discovered this city from its inner side, ran into adventures and met lots of great
people; and then we eventually had to come to la Place de Pompidou and play a guitar and a clarinet to make some money to get to the airport...

A promenade of love, Light, Adventures, Romance, and nostalgy

is a an intimate, quiet and lulling solo-piano piece, replaying moments when all the daily conquers are over, the large world turns small in a room around you, busy streets of the cities are going quiet, the night’s veil is just about to fall on your tired eyes...

is featuring an array of styles and live instruments to develop the Lullaby story further: it's a humorous take on the idea of sleeping in a full daylight, when the world is at its peak of energy, rushing and loudly making its way to the evening; sun rays sneaking into your tightly closed eyes.

THE ALBUM

The “Moonlight & Sunshine” album has an unconventional structure for the modern classics genre: every next release features 2 different versions of one motive, coming to life as a piano solo piece, interpreting a narrative in the moonlight, and a fully arranged piece, revealing the same story under the sunshine.

The album is evolving live on the major streaming platforms as a playlist (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and others), thereby gradually forming the full album as new pairs of tracks are released. The completion of the album “Moonlight and Sunshine” will take several months.
