My Hans Zimmer story 

It started a long time ago. I think when the soundtrack to Batman - Dark Knight came out. I saw a video of Hans Zimmer talking about originality. He mentioned that he was looking for musicians who were exceptional in their approach to music. I got the feeling that I could be part of Hans Zimmer's team. I had no idea how his world worked. I reworked his songs and tried to get to him somehow. A guy from Slovakia who was interested in nothing but music.

Im on SubStack 

Im on SUBSTACK. 

I don't know if you all know that I've been keeping a diary since 2005. Since I quit my job and stayed with my daughter on maternity leave, I have also published a book in the Slovak language. It was an important period in my life. It was impossible to go to work and be a full-time musician. 

Gradually I will publish these diaries on my Sub Stack profile. I write in Slovak and I translate the diaries using Deepl translator into English. So English won't be great, but you will be able to understand my feelings and observations. As we say in Slovakia "you can see into the kitchen"

New project THE BUZZFISH! 

This new project is planning its first concerts in November 2022. So far we can only reveal that it will be very loud!

New film 

For a week now I have been working on the music for a documentary about the Slovak director Dušan Trančík. I admit that I didn't know his work before. He lived a large part of his life under communism, which was characterised by endless censorship and bureaucracy. In the film, Dusan asks the question whether film can change the world for the better. My favourite director, Andrei Tarkovsky, asked a similar question. 

I look forward to seeing another worthy film directed by Erik Praus, one that does not give us an answer, but asks more important questions.
