A Personal Message from Ludi…
“The experiences of the last year and a half since the passing of my wife, Karen, have had a profound effect on me. I would like to share the passion, healing and emergence resulting in these new compositions that have come through while sitting at the piano or with other instruments I ‘talk’ through. The works run the full spectrum from shock and despair to the feeling of being fully alive and ecstatic, reflecting both the inner and outer shifts and changes which were inevitably experienced. I feel great reverence for this deep process and gratitude for my wife, Karen, and all she brought to our lives.”
Catherine Stifter, Capitol Public Radio producer of Saving the Sierra says of Hinrichs:
“Ludi is of course a musical genius. He composed a whole suite of music for a radio documentary I created a decade ago. His sonic vision made the show magical. So much of of that music was created in the moment, in collaboration, in response to stories. I can’t wait for this show. Thank you Ludi for pouring your heart out.”
