Between nature and music there is a mysterious, irreplaceable and eternal mystical connection. Besides conducting a symphony of sounds, nature gives, just like music, a source of inspiration and a place to be oneself.

The low lands are very photo genic indeed, the solitude and serenity of the motion pictures are beautifully captured by Pjotr van Schothorst. The landscape music video premiered 22 April 2021 in collaboration with Nell Shaw Cohen founder on the platform of the US composers network LandscapeMusic.org to celebrate international Earth Day.org

It really feels appropriate to add 'De Wolken' of Dutch poet Martinus Nijhoff to the visuals, in both Dutch and English, b
ecause i appreciate the wonder of poetry and clouds very much. I am happy that i found out about the English translation of 'The Clouds' by John Irons .. his version is in such a wonderful synergy with the original language .. it completes the poem as it were. The visual poem premiered in collaboration with the Cloud Appreciation Society.
