LOCKDOWN - An international Music Project

In March 2019 Brother Richard Hendrick,  a Capuchin Franciscan living in Ireland, has penned a touching poem about coronavirus Since this poem was shared via social media, it has been shared more than 44.000 times. 

I had the idea of connecting musicians all over the world, recording my musical version of Richards words. Musicians from Brasilia, Australia, the U.K., Japan and Europe are recording their parts at the moment - an exhilarating experience! 

Here you will find the the progress of the project - step by step. 

The music is like the poem - starting in a dark mood, but later turning into a danceable hymn of life - with soul and funk elements.

For me it is an absolutely new experience from composing classical music to writing pop music...
