‘They say the universe is endless. Our raindrop-sized planet is floating on the surface of the dark star-sea with its million secrets. We may think our importance is microscopic, but we still get up each morning and create. Since my childhood I have always been amazed by the symphonies of classic composers, and nowadays by contemporary electronic music. This Hidden Kingdom project was born from the clash of these two worlds, which is the collection of my music composed for movies, video installations and television programs. My purpose has been clear for me for a long time now, I want to help people with my music to rise above their everyday problems and steer their attention towards such things as existence which first seems simple but it is truly such a great miracle. I hope this thought, which can be considered naïve at first, will reach many through the language of my music. Bon voyage!
