Which words come to mind about your Daëwaë?
free from thought
free from everything you think you know
What is a santour?
It’s an instrument. Mine is from Iran
I discovered it when I discovered Sufi music from Persia and fell in love with the sound of this instrument that went straight to my soul.
Would you like to share some of your background with me? Where are you based? What music projects do you have? What do you love doing?
I live in Britany in Rennes, France. I had several electronic music projects by the past ….. autodidact. And now I play music as “Nadleehi” and “Eijra Woon”.
I love walking in Nature…. That’s what I love the most. Being with friends outside in Nature around a fire and the stars above …. Simple things.
Gardening. Watching medicinal plants and legumes growing. Making music. Laughing…. Simple things again…
Beautiful! I can see a connection now to some themes in your music. How do you see your music connected to nature?
Because …. it’s where I free myself from the shitty influence of this fucked up world …. this is where I feel free, protected, it’s our home actually and the disconnection with it makes me fuckin sick…. and this is where I feel more connected to some intuition and potential, and also inspiration for music …. this is very difficult to talk about it …. not very rational …. I’m a pagan in a way …. but I’m tired of these fuckin labels
There’s something about the supernatural , experiences that I had that changed m e forever and open some perspectives on reality that I didn’t expect at all
Do you feel you connect with nature through your music?
Yes… in a way.
How? You mentioned field recordings?
I sampled mostly the sea and the sand on this EP, but Eijra is born in the forest
I’m now working on other things, and I use all the samples that I recorded during a trip in South America: Geiser, wind, sounds of the jungle, birds, etc.
Amazing! I am excited to hear more from you. Thank you for sharing your words and music with us.
Thank you !
