Is Diversity Confusing?

Diversity - Entprima

Of course, diversity is confusing at first, but as the Persian poet Saadi said hundreds of years ago: “Everything is difficult before it becomes easy”.

For example, a single person called Horst Grabosch has three artist identities as a music producer – Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts, Alexis Entprima and Captain Entprima – what’s the point?

Well, it’s pretty easy to explain then. Already in my first career as a performing musician, my work was diverse because I am a curious person with an open mind. This continues today. I started my second, late career in electronic music with dance music, before an urge for socio-critical themes broke through, without losing my love for dance music. I quickly realized that the listener groups also formed an intersection, but in order to offer better orientation to others who were looking for either one or the other, I designed the artist identity Alexis Entprima exclusively for electronic dance music.

But my love of meditative sounds also needed an identity for the same reason. That’s how Captain Entprima was born. All three identities also have a connection from previous stories I had told musically, and also correspond to my moderately experimental musical tastes.

What makes me particularly happy is the fact that the three genres cross-fertilise each other and that, for example, many lovers of meditative sounds also perceive the oppressive problems of the world because I can convey that there is not only black or white. The fanatical seekers of simplicity only bring disaster to the world community because they seek groups that share their ideology. These groups then fight each other to the point of war because they perceive their world view as the universal truth. The world is never simple, but the life of every human being can become more bearable if one accepts the diversity and aligns one’s everyday actions accordingly. In this way, a better world may emerge through evolution.

Let me close with a comment I just received from a playlist curator (see following Video): “The track is well produced and quality elements are used. It sounds catchy and chill at the same time, but a bit too experimental to fit into our playlist editorial. All the best!”

A basically positive feedback, but one that describes the whole dilemma excellently. “You don’t fit one hundred percent with the current trend, so you don’t get an existing stage.”

So we have to build our own stage, dear fresh-minded people!

RESPECT

I am no idealist, and love is sometimes too much of a good thing for me. I think that respect which excludes racism and nationalism per se is enough. Respect also allows a personal retreat when other attitudes to life conflict too much with one’s own.

PROSPERITY

Wealth is always relative. But I would grant everyone the right to enough food, a solid roof over their heads and the opportunity to develop their talents. If some people think they need to keep the current prosperity gap, they should buy a few more luxury cars – what the hell – I’m not a communist.

SERENITY

The first two demands are a prerequisite for making serenity possible for the poor at all. It is likely to be a great challenge for all the half-rich, because in my opinion the hunt for the WORK-LIFE-BALANCE is nothing else but the fight against the constantly threatening poverty in the existing social system.

The Founder

My name is Horst Grabosch and I am the mastermind of all projects presented on this website.

I was born in the largest coal mining area in Germany, known as the “Ruhrgebiet”. After school I worked as a professional musician until I was 40 years old. This time is well documented on WIKIPEDIA

After a burnout I had to give up my job, moved to the south of Germany, to the Munich region, and did an apprenticeship as an information technologist.

Another burnout forced me to rebuild my existence again, which collapsed just because of the corona crisis. In expectation of poverty at retirement age, I began to build a second career as a musician in 2019.

Christmas for Lunatics - Horst Graboscj

Christmas for Lunatics

2 years ago we were amazed when Horst Grabosch, with his project Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts released a Christmas song. At that time we could discover for the first time the romantic side of the otherwise often biting artist – but only in the music. The lyrics, disguised as a documentary, revealed his biting side again. The result of this mixture reflected his ambivalent nature. Today, a clearly biting Christmas song is on the gift table for 2022. On the basis of “Joy to the World” and this time under his civil name, he takes the Christmas concern with rockets and other war equipment violently on the joke. But again, the song has very pleasing sides.

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie gerträumten Träume - Horst Grabosch

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie geträumten Träume

Horst Grabosch is always good for a surprise. Not that this is the first poem set to music that the eclectic has published, but the style is new. Familiar twists appear, but with this song rock elements, a quote from historical NASA rocket launches and electronic elements give each other a hand. The German lyrics are no less confusing. Some kind of shaman promises the way to a new life, which begins “unceremoniously loud” in the “stripped skin”. The master himself sings and the tones of the melody oscillate between the tones of the familiar tempered tuning, although the former professional trumpeter certainly knows exactly where they actually belong – unique.

La quarta porta per la pace della mente - Captain Entprima & Horst Grabosch

La quarta porta per la pace della mente

Fourth soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. This meditation unit is based on the keynote A. This time a melodic instrument runs throughout the piece. As can be seen from the transient response of the tones, it is an electronic wind instrument. The sound has quite a few effects that evolve over time, but the phases are constantly shifting. A very impressive performance.

La terza porta per la pace della mente - Captain Entprima & Horst Grabosch

La terza porta per la pace della mente

Third soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. After opening the first door to peace of mind on the root C and the second door had root G, as expected the series continues with the root D – circle of fifths upwards. The principle remains, but the sounds change. Another wind chime and other melodic fragments. We are curious to see how it continues.

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar - Horst Grabosch

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar

The song bears the eclectic signature of German author Horst Grabosch and the title is the beginning of the German constitution. In Grabosch’s typical style, which is somewhere between responsibility and irony, the danceable song leaves everything open as far as attitude is concerned. However, the dishonest solemnity of the movement is thoroughly destroyed.

Eclectic Electronic Music

After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.

Choice between what?

Of course, we condemn the war in Ukraine, but what choice do we have after that?

God of Fullness

Scientific cosmology and spirituality are not opposites. The idea of a creation – of God – cannot come from nothing.
