Raymond Dijkstra




"My Music is made in an Abstract Proces of Self-Detachment. While detaching myself from myself, I connect with my self. My Expressionistic Music should be regarded more as a physical Act, more than Music. It's a constant Training in opening up my Mind, removing Obstacles with Violence, and seeing a different Reality through the Debris." "The Final Result is a Pile of Fragments, but I guess something of the initial Light still shimmers through." "The Publication is simply a Registration of a Physical Event, and should be left untouched. Any changing of the initial Energy is a weakening."

"The Goal was to confront and break down the Image of Reality and open the Sight to a hidden Reality, between the Cracks" (R.D.)
