Welcome to cosmicradio.info, an independent website
for the celebration and sharing of artwork and music by Thomas Wiegandt.
If you follow the links above - you can find a wide variety of artworks including; poetry/performance pieces and visual art by Thomas Wiegandt, information about a nature art project called The Magic Forest in Co. Cork, Ireland, and music from Thomas Wiegandt + Friends that you can access here or download (for personal and private use only)! I hope you enjoy exploring this site and discovering all there is to hear and see!
Why do I do this? - I reject the ego-driven and capitalist art business, that controls and limits artistic expression! I like to share my art with whoever enjoys it. I believe in non-elitist community art, with everyone having the right to be an artist for their own and for communal enjoyment.
Why Cosmic Radio? - In 1981 I lived in a commune in Calle, in the North of Germany. We lived a lifestyle of self-sufficiency with plenty of sex, drugs & rock and roll thrown in for good measure. We used to have regular music sessions in which we were always surprised by how our spontaneous improvisations could be so connected and coherent. In many ways, these improvisations were like instant compositions! My friend Martin and I talked about this and we came to the conclusion that we were the recipients of some cosmic broadcasting, and that we were actually tuned into Cosmic Radio. That’s how the term came about, and to me it's still a good explanation. I consider myself as an instrument of the Cosmic Spirit.
Please recommend and make a link to this website to share with the people in your artistic community! Please also contact me if any links are not working, or if you intend to use the material. I am always interested in cooperating with other artists and projects.
Thanks to the Omni-versal Spirit, to the ancestors, and of course to all the musicians and other people who participated in the various projects and helped to make this possible.
