THE OCEAN HIT MEDIA CHARTS!

In November The Ocean Collective hit the charts in several countries! Although this might be completely irrelevant and have no further meaning to a lot of people, it sure does mean something to me. It means that what i do and how i do it lead to things that work out and pay off in the end!

And this is absolutely crucial to the idea of following a path, that makes one happy.

Thank you all for supporting and believing in me! 🙂

STUDIO VLOG AT DRUM! MAGAZINE

I’m happy and honored by Drum! Magazine presenting the first The Ocean vlog, captured in Iceland earlier this year while recording drums for “Phanerozoic”.

The post also includes a couple of insights on the mental and creative process involved in the making of the new record and being surrounded by Iceland’s beauty. Check it out at the link below:

“The most prominent effect to me was this overall humbleness towards nature and the creative process, all due to being surrounded by these vast landscapes that Iceland is so famous for,” Seidel tells Drum. “The studio was located amidst a snowed-in mountain range, offering only coldness and abrasive irrelevance. It was the antipode to Berlin, a capital at times drowning in self-importance. Relocating ourselves allowed us to ease our minds and focus on what matters.”

Enjoy!
Yours,
