Ottmar Liebert


"Sometimes my working is play and sometimes my playing is work. I wouldn’t
have it any other way.

Received two Moleskine notebooks for my birthday which I will use for
Up Close and Tears in the Rain. Each book to be filled with ideas, concepts,
descriptions of sounds, titles etc. I imagine it will be nice to have such a
book documenting the progress rather than having a file on a computer. I only
use pencil on these books…

Discussed education in America with a friend yesterday. As the
information age turns into the conceptual age, kids who do not have art and
music classes will be ill-equipped to think in sweeping concepts. Accounting and
code-writing is getting out-sourced and if countries like India teach their
children the Arts, they could very well make the transformation to the
conceptual age in a couple of decades, while American children might struggle to
make that transition. Watching MTV does not count as getting a music education!"

  2. Dear Ottmar,

    Just wanted to thank you for making such beautiful music! I liked your music the very first time I heard it and I want to share it with everyone I know.
