Have you ever listened to silence?

We have been sitting once in a small group in the absoulte silence of the Mesr desert in Iran. It was full moon and the dunes and hills around looked in that silverlight like landscapes of the moon itself.

It´s been a while that none of us had spoken or moved. It felt to me as if the time stopped and i could clearly hear the silence. It was a deep wobbling bass sound, that started at dawn and now it was heavy and black like a thick blanket lying on my shoulders. The interesting thing is that as soon somebody spoke or played music, it was gone. You even didn´t feel the weight of the darkness anymore!

Anyway, everybody obviously listened to this deep silence, as we suddenly heard a single yet clearly resonating tone of my Guitalele buzzing and immadiatley fading away. The more irritating thing was, that it was lying a few meters aways and nobody could have touched or moved it unintentionally!

At the end it was one of this little desert-flies sitting on one of the strings and as it flew away, it „played“ this fine, though percievable tone…

Without the silence around, we could have never experience this. Silence is not just the absence of sound. It’s not just the lack of noise. Silence has its own beauty and its own power. Silence has the power to change us and to change the world around us.

„There is no music, without silence…“

“The ultimate step of our journey is not just our own healing, but returning and giving something back to the community!” – Mazatecs, Indigenous people of Oaxaca, Mexico

With HEAL, we have released his fifth single since mid 2022, accompanied by a breathtaking video. The message of “Connection & Healing” calls upon us to trust in our inner power and voice, and to draw strength from this connection to make a difference in the world.

HEAL has become a multidimensional hologram, revealing different facets of ourselves with each ray of light. It urges us to listen to our inner voice and experience healing, even when it seems impossible in an increasingly complex world. While largely autobiographical, HEAL is a vessel of countless stories and emotions that Om has encountered on his journey.
Over 15 artists from 3 continents have been involved into the creation of HEAL incl. Riosentí, a duo from Mexico/Argentina, Ryan Carniaux – jazz professor from New York and a very engaged team of videographers, dancers and costume designers from Iran.
”Heal my little friend – sitting in my chest like a bird…”

Our new track is now available on all platforms for you to listen! Sitting for 3 months in the absolute silence of the desert, the "whispers of the soul" have been audible to me like never before. Back in Germany i called our fellow member of The Exile Orchestra, Jazz Prof. Ryan Carniaux and told him how his sound has been on my mind there! We arranged spontaniously a recording session for the next day. I created this track in just 5 hours over night. He came, listened just once and eventually just played one take. This is it!
