I’m Friedemann Findeisen, a creative weirdo from the middle of nowhere. I love making things, learning things and helping people. If I don’t make, I get restless. If I don’t learn, I feel empty. If I don’t help, I feel ungrateful. Good things have happened when I managed to balance all three. In the past, I’ve been a magician, public speaker, music video director, songwriter, producer, board game designer, author, publisher, YouTuber, music profiler, illustrator, musician and film composer. The best things I've ever made are Holistic Songwriting Academy, my book The Addiction Formula, the YouTube show The Artists Series, my Grunge album Canohead and my board game Cantaloop.

    Listening to this podcast.

    Writing music theory ideas is a lot like speaking NLP patterns. Too much is forced and wierd, it feels unnatural and feels manipulative.

    The message is more important than appearing clever. Occam’s Razor is valuable in music.

    I saw Khalid and Drake in the same photo on an instagram post from Drake’s page. I wanna know how an artist like Khalid became big at such a young age. I know other artists have done it too. What did Khalid do specifically to reach the heights he’s at right now with his remarkable talent.
