Life is a mystery. The more impressive that some people have the gift to express this mystery in an artistic way. Perhaps Mario Hammer and And The Lonely Robot itself is a mystery, which is strictly opposed to an explanation. But this blind spot, this great emptiness, has the power to make music come to life and to move a step closer to the meaning and purpose of this mystery.
Live, love, laugh. Pain, shame, guilt. Grief, consolation, action. Hope, healing, helplessness. Loneliness, egoism, disappointment.Transitless, we experience a harmonious combination of all these and many more emotions that mesmerize us hypnotically. Here you are confronted with the truth. Uniquely smartly packaged, we may have to end up with the fact that what we can feel from the one minute to the next is, indeed, irritable and engaging, but that exactly this property makes us human. The very different titles devoted to different languages and proverbs take us on a journey throughout the emotional worlds of human existence. Or can the interpret be psyochologized at this point and should we rather speak of the journey throughout his sentiment? Mario Hammer’s music is a time of reflection and pondering. He calls it life experience. We may be part of this realization and perhaps we will be aware ofhow often we can find ourselves in the tracks.
