Featured: Interview by the Greek magazine ithaque.gr with Michel Montecrossa

Ο Michel Montecrossa μιλάει στο ithaque.gr

How did you first get into music?
As a child I sang in a radio choir. Since then I am singing and exploring the vast territory of music.

You are a versatile man. Pacifist, ecologist, artist in many forms and a fighter. What do you think that fits you most and why?
Artist in many forms. To be an artist makes you ready to be a peaceful fighter for positive and constructive progress.

The lyrics of your songs are mostly influenced by social and ecological issues. What messages do you send to your listeners?
Love, hope, be yourself and stay true to your highest aim.

With many albums released already, which one is your most favorite and why?
Right now it is the «Happy Future» Song Collection from the «Happy Future Climate Change Concert Tour 2010″. It vividly reflects the crossroads situation of that year which opened the understanding that we are moving towards the bright earth and that the dark appearances will go.

What excites you more: the journey of creating an album, or the result of it?
The journey is the result and the result is the journey.

If you were in the position of the listener / viewer, what would you love most and what would make you close your eyes or ears?
Love is what I love most. If love would disappear it would make me close my eyes and ears. But it will never be because love will never go.

In your song “Talkin’ World Awaking” you were referred among others to Greece. You also said that “The power is there of the people uniting». By your opinion, what is the element that can keep the Greeks and Europeans in general united, against the the economic meltdown and the corrupted politicians?
It’s the love for Europe, for the Union of Europe and the coming of the United States of Europe. The love of the people for Europe will bring young politicians of a higher ethical quality to the stage of action, and young power of progress will end the illusion of meltdown, which is only a trick of the rich and the banka-speculators to cheat the people into becoming cheap and mindless slaves.

Being a German and a pacifist with a political view, is there something that bothered you of Germany’s position against Greece?
Germany as much as Greece is in the hand of global banka criminality. There is no special position except that we all need a fundamental change of the world’s financial system, including full debt relief for all EU countries, controlled change from speculator banking to Real Value Banking, a stabilizing Euro reform that makes the Euro the currency of the United States of Europe – and all that followed by a fresh, unburdened start of the working hand free for future building.

What are your plans for the future?
Goin’ on with the living celebration of humanity and visiting Greece for a concert.

If you had chance to dedicate only one song to the Greek people, which would that be?
It would be «Let’s Be Together And Care For Love».

Life is getting tougher day by day. What is your advice to the world as 2012 is on it’s way?
There is a Big Consciousness working behind the tough appearances for the True, the Right and the Vast. It is also working in us. Let’s be open to it with hope and courage and a better future will come.
