[News] Roland Bühlmann published the official music video for the track “Hesychasm” taken from new album

Swiss Instrumental Progressive Rock/Jazz Fusion artist Roland Bühlmann published the official music video for the track “Hesychasm” taken from new album “Figurative” out on June 23, 2024. Watch the video through the YouTube player below:

This album deals with perceptions and reactions to these perceptions, and is therefore introspective and very subjective, which is why I do without fellow musicians.

About the titles of the tracks:
Pareidolia“: “there is an interesting phenomenon called “Pareidolia”, our brain tends to complete unknown and foreign impressions and “transforms” them into familiar ones.
Figurative“: “pictorial or symbolic. My perception works in sounds, images, symbols.
Visions“: “from the Latin “visio”, appearance, sight. Here in the sense of a Christian supernatural perception of images.
Camouflaging“: “is a technique used by autistic people to be perceived as neurotypical.
Hesychasm“: “a form of spirituality developed in the Middle Ages by Orthodox Byzantine monks, and which can be traced back to practices from late antiquity. I use it as a reaction to certain perceptions.
Exteroception“: “means External perception.
Onomatopoeic“: “also onomatopoetic.

In tracks 1 and 7 I quote a short sentence from the Jewish original of the 2nd book of Kings, cat. 3, in ancient Hebrew, verse 15b: “While the musician played, the hand of the LORD came upon him.

Roland states: ““Hesychasm” is another track on my new album “Figurative.” A special feature of this track is the bass solo in the first part. “Hesychasm” is a form of spirituality developed in the Middle Ages by Orthodox Byzantine monks, and which can be traced back to practices from late antiquity. I use it as a reaction to certain perceptions. I play electric and bass guitars, aeon sustainer (“e-bow”), Logic software synthesizer, and various objects as percussion.
