10 QUESTIONS TO ESTAS TONNE

Come un moderno Trovatore, Estas Tonnè viaggia in molti luoghi e si ritrova in diversi riferimenti culturali, senza identificarsi con una sola nazione o paese, quanto, piuttosto con la ricchezza culturale del mondo. La sua musica è dunque un riflesso di molti approcci. Una fusione di struttura classica , la tecnica del flamenco, la tradizione dei gitani, le caratteristiche della musica latina... una varietà di stili che mostrano una struttura armonica del suono con cui la chitarra produce una sua lunghezza d'onda, per eseguire improvvisazioni sempre diverse, ma con una melodia ben precisa.  La sua musica è sempre plasmata dall'espressione emotiva e dauna vasta gamma di elementi acustici, provenienti non solo dai vari generi musicali, ma dall'accesso alle emozioni stesse.  Due sono i campi in cui si forma la musica. E ' la struttura sottostante di " Io so" e l'unicità aggiuntiva dell'improvvisazione con il punto di partenza di " Io non so ". Questo particolare approccio di creare musica comprende sia il fondamento che la libertà nello stesso tempo.  Estas Tonnè partecipa a concerti, conferenze, incontri di Yoga, manifestazioni artistiche e altri festival, eppure è coinvolto in collaborazioni che vanno da diversi progetti cinematografici, dalla poesia, dalla meditazione e dalla danza. E' recente il suo coinvolgimento nel progetto film "Time of The Sisth Sun" che sta caratterizzando i concerti del musicista itinerante.

1)   Let’s talk about you: who is Estas Tonnè and where does he come from?
Thanks for asking. Of course I can give you a superficial answer, but I don't wish to feed this story anymore. So I would say this: Who is Estas Tonne? A fragment of the whole… And where does he come from? I don’t quite remember yet… but I might answer this question soon..

2)  How did you start playing around the world and why did you decide to do that?
I didn’t start to play around the world, it seems the world is round and I kept moving around it.

3)  I saw one of your videos and I was surprised by your ability to improvise. What do you think and what do you feel when you play?
What do you think when you walk the same street you walked last night? Different things right? So it is... now is one thing, the next now is another thing… though what is in between is very interesting.

4)  Who is and what is an Artist, according to you?
ALL OF US, some could truly connect with the essence of it, some are exploring dimensions of it, and some think it's only “special people who have unique talents”... and that’s true… we are all unique and talented... and all are artists...

5)  Can you tell me something about the project “Time of the Sixth Sun”?
It’s a film about raising the consciousness on this planet… shared by many beings who explore the meaning of it, some have answers, some dogmas, some are here to INSPIRE… I truly wish this wonderful project would be available for the masses soon enough!

6)  I’d like to speak about your album “Internal Flight 2013”: what do you want to communicate, with this work? You said: “A transformation of thought into eternal smiling silence”. What did you mean?
It's all about transformation… like life itself and death also… moving from one state to another… so it's kinda transforming a Dragon into a Dragonfly…

7)  Have you ever been in Italy, my country? If you did it, can you remember something particular that happened to you? If you didn’t, will you come to make a session?
Yes, I love that part of the Earth called Italy, and I have many beautiful friends originally coming from these gorgeous lands. I have never seen so many paparazzi in any other parts of the world, seems this word is living its purpose.

8) What is your philosophy of life? What do you believe in?
It changes from moment to moment… yet I believe one day we will greet each other with an open heart… and truly see who we are…

9)  What does music represent to you?
It’s a wave….and we better choose what waves we are making … As we are the waves also...

10)  Is there anything that we didn’t mention and you’d like to say? What are your upcoming events?
Having an Internal flight… as nothing else matters unless we are free… inside…

Thank you so much and have a great journey, Estas!
