Harry Birkholz

MUSIC

" Harry Birkholz was passionate about contemporary music which he collected fervently. In the '80s he started to compose. None of these recordings done in Germany while he was staying in the house of Mother Meera, to my knowledge, have survived.

In 1996, he bought a Roland A-80 electronic piano. For months he dedicated himself to playing, composing and recording his compositions.

He produced 50 some tapes that I plan to have digitalized.

During the summer of 1998, we produced his first CD "USHA OVER THE EASTERN PLAINS" for which he received at that time praise from Robert Fripp.

No music producer has answered positively to producing this CD. It remains only available to our close friends. You can listen to some of it on the website.

Harry continued to play piano every day. Unfortunately he always used a headset, in order not to disturb anyone when he became totally absorbed in his own musical world.

In 2009, on the occasion of an exhibition dedicated to NYC, we produced a second CD entitled "USHA OVER CENTRAL PARK" for which Harry created the cover from a photo he took during our stay in Manhattan during the summer.

USHA is the name of the early morning goddess in the Rig Veda. It is the name we chose for our ASBL.

USHA represents perfectly the energy of the two Aries we are.

To give you a glimpse of Harry's musical culture, I suggest you to read three abstracts from "Chronicles of the music for a New Age" that he wrote between 1994 and 1999.

If you are trilingual, please also read the chronicles published on the German and French website because they differ from one another. A compilation of these 21 chronicles is under preparation.

On the occasion of this exhibition at Tour & Taxis in the fall of 2012, as a red line I chose the title of "The Sound of NYC back to Tibet" to highlight how much Harry has always lived as a musician during all of his life." -> Contact & infos.
