The Music Of Poligraf : Leftoverturned part 1



(Detail from "American quilt" )





When I complete a composition there are often unused ideas left. Some of those I find actually pretty good but if I can’t see how to fit them into the piece then there’s not much choice but to discard them. For a while.



I…

Music and Spiritual Practice - An Overview of Poligraf (part 4)

(The Wheel of Becoming - Symbolic Representation of Saṃsāra in Tibetan Buddhism)



Poligraf's first album is entitled "Samsara." Traditionally, the term refers to the Buddhist concept of the cycle of birth and death in which all beings in the universe take part and which can be escaped only through enlightenment. Personally, I agree with the view that it is rather that very same process of… Continue

Music and Spiritual Practice - An Overview of Poligraf (part 3)

Poligraf has been an essential part of my life since its inception at the beginning of February 1998.



The adventure began after the collapse of a band that probably never really existed as it only had a handful of rehearsals, but for which I had already written a lot of material. Left alone at the helm, I connected with a group of experienced musicians via a co-worker friend and after agreeing on a general aim and formula, we raised sail… Continue

Through various friends and contacts I reconnected with progressive rock, a form of music to which I had already been exposed to in my youth thanks to my older brothers and sisters. Hearing the music of bands such as Yes, Rush, Genesis, and King… Continue

Don't wake me if I am dreaming

So when I first started in Second Life it was to learn as much about it as possible to investigate the possibility of creating a campus for an online school there... now just about two and a half years later I look back in total amazement of all that became of that simple intent.



I joined Second LIfe July 19th, 2006. As I said above I had a very specific goal in mind and set to work on that goal, spending every minute I could investigating how to build, script, and create things in… Continue
