I don't like concerts
In general. Period. And I don't like people. (Yes, that includes you. Sorry). This is simply how things are.
It wouldn't make any sense
The first thing you have to understand is that SOPOR is therapy. Self-therapy to be precise. It was/is something I had/have to do in order to ... well ... NOT end up killing myself. It is magic(k)al, spiritual work ... a perpetual stock-taking ... a contant analysis ... it is crisis & observation ... invocation & exorcism. It is a journey to the depths of the subconscious, the awakening of dead and/or sleeping things.
The purpose of this is to understand and to heal. To put things (well,
) back into balance (as far as this is possible in one lifetime).
It is based on truth. Truth above all.
Art & life cannot be separated. They are ONE. They are synchronistically linked. Magic(k) flows, BECAUSE everything is based on truth.
Each album that comes out of this is like a funeral. A tombstone. The idea is to get something out of my system. Once that is achieved, I move on.
It is private
Singing is a very intimate thing. To me anyway. I would never do this in front of other people. For the same reason, why I don't eat in public ... or empty my bowels for that matter.
Each song is only performed once, and that is in the studio for the actual recording. I never rehearse. I never know what is going to happen once the recording starts. The intimacy of the studio is the sacred space where I speak the words for the first and only time.
The mere thought of repeating what I created in the seclusion of the studio on a stage in front of people is not only ridiculous ... - it is almost a perversion.
