On 21 July 1969 at 2.56 a.m. world time Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. I was 13 years old at that time. It wasn’t until 6 years later that I became aware of the dimension of this photo, when I moved into my first own flat. In the boxes I found the preserved newspaper from 1969 with this photo in large format. It was like a shock when I realized deep inside that this was my home.

Then came the inevitable fight for survival. Study, job, family, children, work. Only 45 years later the tireless fight for money ends in the near prospect of retirement – still close to the poverty line, but with a modest livelihood.

After 45 years of subjugation to the dictates of the economy, a new job to improve finances is not an option. I have had enough of it. But there was still the dream of being an artist, which I seemed to have finished at 40. But what did I have to say?

Then the photo came back to my mind and I was shocked how little had changed in people’s behaviour since then. The feeling of a common homeland, which one must cultivate and preserve, where respect for all life is a matter of course, was still far behind the hatred of the supposedly foreign, and the oppression of the weak.

The dominating ideologies have still not given way to a world order based on reason and science, which is possible with the help of artificial intelligence. And humanity has still not brought its emotions under control with the inherited patterns of behaviour that have arisen under quite different conditions. The world has changed much more through science and technology than the keepers of the past preach to us. And many still believe them instead of using the effort of thought and information.

It will be too late for most living, lazy fools, but anyone who is able to name things with his intellect is called upon to plant the new spirit into the brains of the next generations. It must happen often and continuously to take the next step in evolution.

And this is exactly what an artist can do. And that is exactly what I am doing now.

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.

Meditation and Music

Meditation is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.

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?
