Alex fell in love for the first time with psychedelic music while listening "Lucy in the sky with diamonds" and "Within and Without you" when he was a young boy. 

The Beatles where crucial in his brother´s record collection, while his father recorded Vivaldi, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Schönberg. These two worlds were connected by a balcony and two apartments, one classical music based, the other one with his brothers studio, experimenting with loops, beats and samples.

Till this day Alex travels along this balcony of musical styles from baroque to classical, romantic, modern, contemporary, psychedelic, experimental, progressive and dance-theatre. 


The new album „Selves“ by Alexander Nantschev consists of 8 songs, each representing a different alter ego, like the happy self, the guru, the hippie, the astronaut, the romantic, the classical composer and the rock star. "The concept of multiple selves explains a lot of things I did during my (artistic) life", Alexander Nantschev explains. "It makes me understand myself and my music better, also while interacting with others. I see the different selves as the individual part of an orchestra playing a symphony by a mastermind - the composer. All these parts make up a whole, that’s why I believe the concept of a single self doesn’t really work. In our society we are somehow forced to present ourself in the way of a single self. These multiple layers of selves are mostly not perceived and lead to a lot of conflicts. I believe trying to let these different personas interact in harmony create a symphony, which is more enjoyable to listen to."
