Speech of Nature

— I cannot find any logic in society. Instead, I turn my face towards nature. The mountains in sight.
I'm not in the habit of commenting on society; neither am I by no means religiously or politically engaged in any direction. Just as an exception, I thought I should share some perspectives after my daily encounters with the Speech of Nature. Throughout the years, I have been wandering in mountains, listening to waterfalls and humbly observed the activity of wind, rain, snow and northern lights. This magic fills me with infinite gratitude; not to a specific creator, but just to the situation where human traits have no possibility to interfere or
destroy.

While facing the Speech of Nature, I cannot relate to human-made concepts like politics, religion or any -ism that human beings have invented. They all crumble when confronted with the significance of nature and what the human brain cannot perceive. Any -ism is to me human-made nonsense, because it is based on herd mentality (perishable compared to integrity), convictions (perishable compared to logic) and trends (perishable compared to timelessness).

I cannot accept that one human-made opinion or -ism shall preside in society and thus

direct every single citizens' lives, including those who don't agree. Those in the shape of a human being who play God and arrogantly and abusively think they can decide a "truth"
for others, e.g. via narrow-minded politics or prejudices, never get my respect. A conceited and malicious desire for power and moral control is futile and pathetic compared to the infinite supremacy of a mountain, a waterfall, aurora borealis, galaxies or other non-human forces. Being a gentleman or -woman means to respect others for their private choices/needs even if you couldn't imagine choosing/needing the same yourself, preferring respect to power — to peacefully live and let live side by side.

I wish convictions and beliefs solely were placed in associations because memberships between like-minded are based on free will, and not insidiously inserted into state legislation around the world via bigotry, religion, moral codes, moral panic, moralism,
sentimentalism, stigma, propaganda, taboos, jealousy, hatred, gaslighting, feelings, life-
lies, trends, waves of -isms, elections among the parochial or, not at least, circumstantial aspects. By limiting convictions to associations, bigots are hindered in exploiting national governance, abusing people who disagree, criminalising the innocent, disrupting peaceful situations and constructing victims of harassment. United Nations and Amnesty International are organisations that try to monitor and hinder breaches of Human Rights, state suppression and miscarriages of justice worldwide. 

If the state harasses a particular part of the people, alleging that their lifestyle, needs or choices of work is second-class; then someone would actually believe the propaganda, both from parts of society and from within the affected group. It is called stigma, often
based on lack of enlightenment, taboos or personal hatred — a classic malicious trait of

human beings, resulting in persecution of innocents. We see this in ethnic cleansing, but also in pure moralistic laws around the world. The state must never be tailored to low integrity or to anything that is circumstantial. Thus, I wish the state's most important task was to prevent the state itself from coming to unreasonable power over private lives and free choices in order to avoid discriminating state-isms. Utopia? Perhaps among the human race. Hence, if someone were to ask me what I despise most in this world, I would have to admit that it definitely is humankind.

Which mountains make suppressive legislation for a river? Which sun for which moon?
What would the tree "answer" if you ask whether you should force a conviction on
others or go home and let it be? Did you notice the Speech of Nature held by the pine
cone five centimeter next to the oval stone in the ditch you just passed by?

I have never felt part of society. As long as I can remember, I have recognised an unbreakable connection with nature. At school, teachers would worry that I often wandered alone in the schoolyard. But I never felt lonely, because I was with nature. And I gathered music, constantly "speaking" with my always available good friend, the forest. Fortunately, nature is not human-made, and I humbly appreciate being able to turn to the sea and the mountains. Who or what is behind its origin, I do not know and do not need to know because I cannot know.

One might say that I communicate with nature through music, from beyond the horison. I
write for the elements; for time and space. That a symphony or a violin sonata has to go through the hands of musicians is only a part of this communication. I have made two Symbiophony fictional films on how a symbiosis of music and nature might interact with human beings: MONTAGNA CON FORZA and VICINO ALLA MONTAGNA.

What make it possible for me to stay alive are what I call static elements: the genuine perfection of things that are not human-made — untouchable in quality; pure and timeless. The beauty of a flower, the innocence of animals, the sunset, the waves of the sea. These gems always converse with me and generate music in my head.

I am an alien stuck in a human body, but my mind, soul and heart belong to non-human forces. Society can't have me, because I'm occupied by nature.

«Wind rustling in Botn»

The forest is my friend. Trees and flowers mirrored in the water.
Look, sun is rising high. All that live may listen to my heartbeats.
Here peace fills up my soul. Here life will find its goal.
They wish my presence near. My truest home is here.

Bird chirps in the sky. Breeze touching with ease.
Streams rushing beyond. And close to the chasm stand I.

My dearest, nearest friend. All that live would die without your spark.
You're feeding the music within. Absolute sound. All around.

So, when life is a nightmare. And thoughts are running wild.
You will find me alone by the lakeside, perfectly still.


(FJB)










Nature is constantly present. Music perpetually sounds from beyond the mountains. Humankind arises from earth while Music is directing the cycle of life. Nature is the impartial arena.

What happens when Humankind cannot relate to this unified energy of Nature and Music?




















In this film, we follow a wooden boat's venture across a lake. We will be exposed to the vast array of temperate sensations, sensitive harmonies and visions — freed from the conventions of time.

Also, the brutality and mercilessness of life are central elements, in connection with eleven closely connected parts and originally written music.

This production is respectfully dedicated to the fragile world we all live in.
