My name is Eduard Romanov. I’m writing this letter to explain to you why my art project may help your readers to deal with anxiety, depression, anger and panic attacks that they might be experiencing because of the economic uncertainty and social isolation.
If you ask me, “Ed, what makes you think that MusicSplasher will help my readers and followers who are in distress?” My answer will be simple - I’ve been there and I know how it feels when your life unexpectedly derails. My art project helped me and my family to deal with anxiety and panic attacks keeping our sanity in check. So, if it helped us, then there is a great chance that it will help your readers too.
You see, not so long ago, life put me in a very difficult predicament. A lot of bad things happened to me within a very short period of time. I lost my best friend and almost lost my dad to cancer. The launch of my startup didn’t go according to the plan resulting in massive financial turmoil and when the savings were gone so was my beautiful wife. I failed to close a critical business deal because of a break-down and was forced to leave my home. It all happened so fast that I felt like someone had pulled the rug out from under my feet.
I was lucky – I got out. Now everything is gradually falling into place and I completely got back on my feet after getting covid, but the main thing remains - I'm in New York - my parents are in Russia, which is completely closed for entry until August. My father still has cancer - he is 80. He, like air, lacks his meditation - fishing. Thank God, my mother still has her outlet – teaching. She is 78. She still teaches electrical engineering at the polytechnic institute. Today, unfortunately, over the Internet. I continue working on MusicSplasher - I still have too many “what if-s...” on my plate.
I went through alot and I got to tell you, it’s not the hunger and shelter, love and intimacy, or other basic needs that I needed to take care of, before starting rebuilding my future - it was the inner peace that I needed the most. I had to stop the vortex of negative thinking, anger and anguish first. I needed to get my mind out of the tail-spin. I needed to stop the “what if”, “how could they”, “why me” and the rest of the negative thoughts spiraling out of control in my head. I needed to cool-off and get my mojo back, so I could start concentrating on what I have and what I can do with it. For me, this was the first and the MOST DIFFICULT PART of the recovery process. This is where MusicSplasher came in handy.
This project started with a text message, “Dude, 2 words: Prison Pink”. I received this message the day that I felt the lowest in my entire life. At first I thought it was a cruel joke, but when I googled it, I got the point. So, I made an image of a rectangle painted Baker-Miller Pink and streamed it on my TV screen. Surprisingly, it calmed me down a little. But after a short period of time it started to irritate me. So, I thought, well, let’s try to create something pink but less weird…
What you see today is the result of a long creative journey and endless experiments that began with a simple static pink square. Today, MusicSplasher is a complex mechanism that is designed to arrange packages of visual information in the proper order so that the viewer gets an ultimate visual and emotional experience. My mother calls MusicSplasher a “great tasting potion of science, sound and color served by friendly technology.”
I can bore you to death getting into the nuts & bolts of the project explaining why it might bring a temporary peace of mind but, instead, I’d rather say, “A picture is worth a thousand words. So, go to MusicSplasher.com on your computer and enjoy an open 15 min demo session.” If you like the experience and you think that MusicSplasher can help your readers and followers cope with anxiety and bouts of panic and anger, then share it with them because sharing is caring.
