We were deeply saddened by the events that occurred in Paris on Friday. Our thoughts right now are with the people of Paris, a place that is so dear to our hearts. Music can be an escape through these difficult times and that is why we decided to do this free giveaway with Sebastian Mullaert of his seminal Ovum release "Chant de Paris", a composition which was inspired by this great city. In the words of Victor Hugo "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent."
Some words from Sebastian Mullaert:
Chant de Paris!
Now is the time to chant for paris! and Ovum is doing so by sharing the track â€Chant de Parisâ€ for free.
The tragedy in Paris last friday is a tragedy for everyone. Why this happened is beyond my understanding but I know that all of us and how we live has an effect on how the world looks today. We all share the responsibility for the pain and the happiness in the world; today probably more than ever before in the history of human kind. A common phrase by people in Sweden who donâ€™t want more refuges in Sweden is; â€let them deal with their problems in their own country, we can help them there but why should they come here?â€. When I hear that I like to answer; â€who grow your food?, who sewed your jeans?, where does the gasoline in your car come from?, who made your smartphone?" and so on!
But what can I do in Sweden to help the pain in Paris or Syria??? (or anywhere else where these tragedies is part of daily life).
I really feel that there is only one place where the change can take place, and that place is always with you â€¦ it is you, it is consciousness. I tell myself to stay open, whatever comes up in my awareness, both on a mental, emotional and physical dimension. Stay here! Watch what is happening, watch whatâ€™s â€coming upâ€ or â€passing byâ€ â€¦ may it be emotions, thoughts, visions, physical manifistations or anything else. Some things are pleasant to watch and some things are terribly hard to watch â€¦ but stay, stay here, stay open! give your space and your consciousness to See and Heal, heal You and everyone else. And when the moment comes for you to act, act from this place, act from the place of understanding, compassion and love and I believe that your actions will be part of the change for a better world.
Iâ€™m writing this mainly to myself, and I believe itâ€™s important to remind myself about this but donâ€™t take it wrong â€¦ I really donâ€™t know anything and donâ€™t listen to me if it doesnâ€™t resonate with you.
