I write music. I write poetry. I make paintings.
At heart, I am a composer. I have completed twelve studio albums, I toured internationally with Peter Murphy of the iconic rock group, Bauhaus, in 2005, and with electronica band, Delerium, in 2008. In 2009, I released the six-song EP, White Birds, the studio album, Red Yellow Sun, and a collection of B-sides and remixes called The Vanishing Sessions. In 2010, the Karma Phala Music Project was born. This collection of 31 tracks, photography, artwork and a personal message was given away for free to people willing to help share the music in a conscious way. The project, which has been downloaded and streamed over 1,000,000 times on file sharing and streaming sites, was made available on a free 1GB thumb drive to anyone that agreed to pass it forward or create something with it. Just six months after the release, I began receiving stories from around the world detailing the journey of these drives. With your continued support, I hope to expand this idea on a number of levels and bring people together through music while creating roads for people to discover new, independent artists and musicians.
In 2012, from June 10th-June 30th at the Bearsville Complex in Woodstock, NY, I created an art installation entitled, “Mirrors of Near Infinite Possibility” AKA “The Sparkle Park.” The purpose of this project was to honor artists both living and departed. After sewing together 5,000 mirrors by hand with fishing line and placing 500 solar-powered lights in the ground alongside them, people arrived to witness the spectacle. 3-D Glasses were available to all who came to visit the installation. On June 30th, the final evening of the Sparkle Park Installation, a gala celebration was held at the theater, featuring a concert performance with many notable Woodstock musicians. Together, with the help of the SEVA Foundation, we raised enough funds to restore the eyesight of nearly 60 human beings. The SEVA Foundation partners worldwide to create self-sustaining programs that preserve and restore eyesight. The Sparkle Park was dedicated to artist, Ian Sharp, (February 17th, 1978 – March 25th, 2012). The list of legendary people that contributed to that evening includes Joel Bluestein, David Baron, Danny Blume, Andrew Shober, Manuel Quintana, Pete Caigan, Peter Buettner, Jeffrey Barnes, Denise Parent, Burnell Pines, The Hooligans and more. With your support, the Sparkle Park could live again…and again!
For nearly five years now, I have dedicated a great deal of time to a concept I call INSPIRE ART. This blossoming internet community which now has thousands of participants worldwide is meant to encourage collaboration between talented souls across the world, act as an engine to facilitate the creation of new music, emerging art and encourage different forms of expression. Human rights, conservation and psychology are just a few topics that have infused the essence of Inspire Art since its inception. Above all, Inspire Art is a supportive environment where creators can meet each other, get constructive feedback on new work, and discover new methods of making art. If you are a musician, artist, dreamer, engineer, inventor, educator or just someone who’d like to join a movement toward a world where art can flourish, there are now several online portals on Fimm Inspire Art, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr and so on!
In 2015, with the help of music production legend, David Baron, two more albums finally came to fruition. These records took two years to complete. Potnia Theron is a collection of anthemic, orchestral rock songs infused with analog, electronic synthesizers.
Adaquarium is an experimental, instrumental album which led to a number of new pieces of visual art. Dozens of rare, one-of-a-kind instruments make their appearance on both records. Nearly 100 musicians, including our friends at the FAMES Macedonian Orchestra, came together to help complete this project. I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to properly thank all these wonderful artists. All of the musicians that participated in the creation of this new music instill within me a drive to be better at what I do and to accomplish each task with more passion and determination than I did the moment before.
Working with my hands gives me great joy, whether I am at a piano or a canvas of some kind. Not long ago, I released a limited-edition package for all of the human beings who are deeply supportive of what I do. The “Golden Honeycomb” package is filled to the brim with two, brand-new albums, a personalized, 8×10, one-of-a-kind, Sarah Fimm acrylic, signed painting, a limited-edition Fimm T-Shirt, a thumb-drive with high-res WAV files of additional bonus tracks from the new instrumental record, Adaquarium, and other unreleased, rare material. I am grateful to say that this one is almost sold out! The people who support and share my work and life in a number of ways make it possible for me to continue on this path of music and visual art. There are so many ideas I’d like to bring into existence.
For those of you who choose to become a patron, please know that I am forever grateful as it is my dream to continue doing this. I have many videos, new music, photography, poetry and other surprises coming up for those of you who kindly support my life and work! Thank you for being on this journey with me. All of the albums can now be streamed on my MUSIC page here. All albums are now available in WAV, MP3 and other formats. New video works will be arriving soon. You can watch "Dangerous" on the home page here.
The new album, Given Never Offered, will be released on 3.7.2018. Thank you for believing!
