A few words about Echo Train
“Once upon a time… man made rules and mad mad weapons killed our dreams..
In a place with no future and no past, I made a pack with you, to trick this wonder into staying. I dreamt of love.. the victim of my lies, a shoulder I can cry on or die on..
You know trust when it breaks it makes no sound, it hearts silently. A black cat said to me “.. fate is chasing you, there are things in life you cannot see”
“Kill your daemons” their powers will fade away. Their man made rules and their mad mad weapons, will kill their days. Hey..Who’s out there? The train is ready to roll… welcome aboard!
1. What do you see in your dreams?
Since I remember myself, my dreams have always been very vivid. When I was very young, I believed that I had a parallel life and I could watch it while I was asleep. I also thought at times that this was my real life and that the other one I was living was a dream that I have to hold on to and never forget. This is the reason I started painting. The creatures, the images, the world that I was dreaming could not be explained into words, so I had to find a way to express it and keep it in my memory. Though my dream world has been really beautiful and everyone in it can fly, swim, dance and love freely, it also has a very dark side and unfortunately it appears to be as lucid as the other. People call them nightmares but I hate to admit that mine go on after I open my eyes, like dark shadows coming down the ceiling of the room or little creatures holding candles and staring at me.. I have also seen myself sleeping and leaving my body and then getting really scared that I won’t find a way to get back in it. I don’t know if I still believe in my parallel life but I definitely think that there is a lot to discover in this outer space..
2. What is the most important thing in life?
Death is the most important thing in life. It is kind of a guru, teaching the unknown rules of the universe that no one can comprehend. Mortality means pain and loss, which invites love, and love is eternal.
3. When alone, do you talk to yourself? If so, what do you talk about?
I always talk to myself, which makes it impossible or rather entertaining to be with me. I also read to myself and of course I constantly hum. When I have a problem or I am sad, I talk to myself in the mirror trying to be my best friend. So either I shout and swear to my face or I get too sentimental to handle.
4. How is this world going to end?
The world will end when the bees’ start making chocolate and sex is a forgotten word in an abandoned strawberry field.
5. Why do music?
To embrace my demons…
