Singers from India, Tibet, Mongolia, Egypt, Lebanon, USA, Germany, Holland, and Native America sing songs to the Divine in their own way, connected through Buedis Music.

MUSIC AND HEALING - a personal statement
Its been around 13 years since I had my "solo concert" in the Great Pyramid in Gizah, Egypt. that basically changed my music and the power, that is behin it. SInce this time, it is important to me, what effect the music, that comes through me, has on the people, who listen to it. Does it support their vital energy, does it help, to be a part of the solution on this planet, or is it only part of the problem, as so much music is in these days. I had to change many aspects of my personality, had to leave behind my former "career", to live in a way, that the music can evolve the biggerst possible power. Part of this way was, a series of "throwing down my artist ego" to the creation. My way of living and my adjustment changed. There were long periods without music, that were necessary for the music. In these years I was collaborating on different projects: bringing a system of ancient egypt energy exercises into this world, that raises the vital power and enery of human being to a high level. A piece of land and a big house were bought, we plantet more than 300 trees and created a space that is in harmony with then earth - an ecologic forest-garden-paradise. And an organic, vegetarian nutritiuon system was created for healing the body systems. more information (in german)
Some couldnt go with these changes and wanted me to stay being the "musician", that they knew. But the reactions, that I got from people, who heard this new music, and reacted with deep personal and physical experiences, that would go beyond my imagination, showed me - its exactly what I have to do, healing with music. I kept this for myself but now it seems, the time has come to open it up. A short while ago I got a letter from Mexico, that I do publish here, that gives a kind og "clinical prove" for the healing power of this music. I wish you much joy with the music (and without). geetings from my heart and thank you,.... Buedi Siebert
A LETTER FROM MEXICO
Hello Buedi,I wanted to talk to you about how we use your music. I have wanted to write for some time now, and, well, I am finally doing it. I have a wholistic detoxification center in Mexico. Here is my website: www.detoxnaturally.com\. I am a former drug addict, I used heroin and methadone for many years. I used this African medicine called Ibogaine to get off the methadone, and I did so overnight, during that session. I listened to your Om Mani cd on repeat. I had accidentally found it and brought it with me, never hearing it before I brought it with me to Mexico...and now I know that it was no accident at all. I ended up buying the clinic I got clean in, and I have owned it now for almost 2 years. We use your cd in lots and lots of our sessions and people constantly ask us for copies from our Itunes. This is very healing music Buedi...I know you know that. I see it and have felt it. The combination of sharing this music with our clients as they go through their ibogaine experience results in a deep introspection into oneself and ones life, as well as the understanding of how connected we all are. One opiate addict listened to your cd over and over as he had to go back home after being here and had to leave a life of crime behind him. As he flushed his pills down the toilet, the hundreds he sold, and as he threw away his cell phone, he was listening to your cd, Buedi. That man is still clean after 1 year. He works here with me now. Just listening to the music, at any time, reminds me of the truth. So, basically I wanted to say thank you...thank you....mahalo, gracias, merci...I would also like share with you their experiences with the music that is such good medicine.
Respectfully,Clare Wilkins\par Director, Ibogaine Assn
New Studio and Araucaria office. here some impressions:

Some Reviews on "The Light Dance":
...The Light Danceis comprised of fourteen relatively short tracks, with the longest being a little under seven minutes. Presumably because the music is designed for flowing physical meditation the tracks merge into each other to avoid a stop-start feeling, though each piece is fairly discrete in style and mood. Having done a little t'ai chi I can imagine how this music would be a good accompaniment, but it works superbly as enjoyable music to play while doing nothing.
What I particularly like about this album is that it isn't Chinese sounding all the way through, some tracks -- the title track "The Light Dance" is a good example -- are mainly Western sounding and easygoing. Somehow it all fits together giving one a sense of being on a journey, it's not hard to conjure up the idea of slowly drifting down the Yangtze river with this music! The slightly vocal edge to the Erhu (a two stringed instrument akin to a violin) adds to the atmosphere
I can wholeheartedly recommend The Light Dance to anyone who enjoys melodic and atmospheric music. The blend of guitars, piano, percussion, keyboards and the Chinese instruments is done with artistic grace(D. Bebbington, WindandWire.com March 2003)
....These beautiful, harmonious sounds assist in balancing the bodyâ€s energies (Richard Giles, Nexus Magazine Jan 2004)
The Light Dance moves from quiet to majestic and back again with ease. It is reminiscent of a movie soundtrack with an Eastern Asian feel.At times you feel as though you were observing a parade in front of an ancient Emperorâ€s palace, and then flawlessly it transitions to the quieter feel of a Zen garden.....
...A recurring musical theme from the first track gives the CD a lovely feeling of familiarity by the end.The idea of moving chi fits in naturally with the harp-like instrumentation.Nothing feels more like movement than a nice glissando.This music works very well for massage, although it was created to enhance the practice of moving meditations.(Amy Williams, Massage Magazine Jan Feb 2004)
"DANCING CRANE AND AGILE ERMINE"
Samples from the score for a Nature Documentary "Donaumoos" for Bavarian TV, Produced by ORCA Naturfilm
Composing music for animal- and nature films is always a great pleasure. Animals are besides children my favourite actors. They play their "roles" perfect and surprise with their vitality and their archetypes. Together with the team of Orca we started some tries till we found the right "musical - language" for the theme and the actors of this film.
A documentary about a nearly destroyed moorland - scape in southern Germany, that recovers again and has been a rest place for cranes on their long journeys. HOPE FOR THE MOORLANDS - WILL THE CRANES RETURN? I believe yes.
Basic theme of the film. Crane motive, light meloncholic mood with hopeful opening, accoustic instruments with strings.
Agile Ermine hunting for prey. To re - enact the incredible fast, dance like and acrobatic movings of an ermine is really a challenge, a race between animal and notes. A quick instrument like a xyllophone seemed appropriate to me, accompanied by a agile Bass player and and a busy drummer with pizzicato strings. "Mickey Mousing" in its pure culture.
The transformation of a dargonfly. For this miracle in microkosmos I wrote a "big growing music" that opens up from the first movings through inner movements untill the last preparation for the first and perfect flight, that comes to an end in the final soundmix with the ratteling propelles of the dragonfly.
Landing of the Cranes, a small sensation, variation of the Crane motiv with large strings.
Cranes Dance and end of the films. A dancing crane is really an extraordinary art performance. After watching carefully the scene over and over, I got the impression of an aristocratic being, that will always keep manners even in really exuberant motions. In his humourous jumps and fluttering I discvovered a rhythm. So I composed for his dance a baroque - suebian - bavarian "concerto" to underline his comic with a little "mickey mousing" as we composers say. The end of the film leades into the main theme.
All samples pure music without nature athmospheres and voice comments
