about

The "Internal Flight" naturally occurred and formed during the intense travels in India, Middle East, Europe and Latin America in 2012.
While feeling the call to "stretch" already existing songs, improvising with the intensity of sound as well as "letting the strings tell stories" one evening, while in India, I've had an experience.
Whatever was familiar until that very moment rearranged itself naturally into a long-lasting sound journey with an immense presence of silence between the waves. At that moment, this nameless flow of sound presented itself as a miracle in a way. Followed by this experience, while travelling worldwide, it formed into what is nowadays known as "Internal Flight."
These "sessions" became impossible to call "a concert" but rather:
"a transformation of a thought into eternal smiling silence".
From 2012 and on, as an experiment and a way of living, the "Internal Flight" sounded at meditation festivals, yoga retreats, street festivals, concert halls (small or large), theatres, mental institutes, elderly houses, mourning ceremonies, tiny house gatherings, ceremonious weddings and massive parties. During enormous amounts of sessions, ranging from 1 to 5 hours, I've seen and felt incredible space where sound meets silence. There were no substances involved in the process, neither it needed to.

No matter where this experience took place, on a boardwalk or in a concert hall, in a created environment or a scene with a chaotic surrounding, "this space" made silence visible and calmness felt on a physical level. One may call it meditation, an inner retreat, presence, but these are just words trying to express such a state.

In 2015, after meeting a couple of global travellers, Olga and Andrey Andreev (Paganel Studio), work had begun on film-meditation, "Internal Flight, the Movie." It was released in 2016 and won countless awards on International film festivals. For the film's narrative, a sort of monologue spontaneously emerged, expressing what is quite challenging to convey in words. Both English and Russian versions are easily accessible on our sites as films and soundtracks.

During the worldwide tours, 2016-2019 in the environment of concert halls, this experience transformed into new chapters, "Outer-Inner."
My inner processes and investigations over the years led me to see that the life of every human being, regardless of its various circumstances, has some similarities. "Before" and "after", so to say. We all are experiencing a sort of deaths and rebirths daily. It usually happens without our conscious participation, while subtle changes are taking place.
It requires a lot of determination, focus and observational skills to see that we constantly repeat ourselves through our behavioural patterns.
Seeing them opens the door to our inner self-exploration, which eventually leads an individual to acceptance, harmony, and peace within, which are always present if seen through a naked eye without judgement.

This recording of the "Internal Flight", as it appeared in its purest form in 2012, captured the essence of what human life is about: struggle, drama, pain, solitude and yet joy, celebration, silence and unification of the opposing forces.

about

Estas Tonne Germany

As a modern-day Troubadour Estas Tonne travels countless places and finds himself in several cultural references without identifying himself with a single nation or country, rather with the cultural richness of the world.
