Macedonian sound artist Toni Dimitrov creates music with copious use of field recordings, abstract sounds and magical drones. His works are filled with deep love and awe towards nature, as well as the idea of inner freedom and longing for a harmonious existence. In unity with nature, Toni sees the path to universal happiness and harmony. A path towards a personal Utopia.
"Why, however, should we find it necessary to talk about utopia and the world of ideas at all? Why should we not rest secure in the bosom of the material environment, without flying off into a region apparently beyond space and time? Well, the alternative before us is not whether we shall live in the real world or dream away our time in utopia; for men are so constituted that only by a deliberate discipline – such as that followed by a Hindu ascetic or an American business man – can one or the other world be abolished from consciousness. The genuine alternative for most of us is that between an aimless utopia of escape and a purposive utopia of reconstruction. One way or the other, it seems, in a world so full of frustrations as the "real" one, we must spend a good part of our mental lives in utopia".
