Playing the piano for me is a means of expression - an intense mixture of communicating feelings and thoughts. 'The Beginning Of Everything' is a very personal collection of compositions created in the aftermath of my divorce.
Once was said “Let there be light” The Universe as we know it began. Duality with light and darkness, mass and dark matter. Suns, worlds, and even life, was created.
I relate my songs to the Universe around me.
"The Beginning Of Everything"
Here is a list of the songs included on the disc.
1- The Beginning Of everything. - The moment after the Big Bang everything expanded so fast. Yet, 5-6 billion years later here we are. We are a reflecion of that moment. …in every moment. Just listen !!
2- Hymn to father. - When my father died, I played this melody at the funeral. He heard this melody, and asked me to call it "Fathers Blues". I think "Hymn to father is more appropriate.
3- Stardust. - We are all made of same magical matter .
4- Memories. - Life lives and life carries on. DNA is one type of memory. The body and mind becomes an image of experienced memories.
5- The Door. - When a period of life ends, a new will start. The Door is the possibility to start afresh. Be open, and be aware. What kind of door, do you want to open ?
6- Blue. - The small planet. The little place called Earth. An unfinished piece
7- Mother – Love – Home. - A song for Mother Earth and My mother. For the longing to be with her. Feel her Love, and be…. home.
8- Waves. - I was rolling up and down with the waves. The water made me become a stone, like the ones under my body. Coming home from the beach I played only with my fists at the piano. Let yourself be a stone. Waves rise and fall, finding the one to surf is the key to play...
9- Peace. - As I sat there with this lovely piano, birds were singing and I was finally recording these songs. This melody of peace just took place
10 Love. - This is when you realize that sailing a boat alone or with no oars, is the lack of love. When someone is missing. The moment when Love for oneself is All, And it is time to go home.
12- Stardust variations.
13- UDO. - Udo played by Johannes Kuchta
14- Puig Mayor. - Piano for art. Song made specifically to a painting made by Kathrin Hufen. Photo can be find in the booklet

I am Kristoffer Lund Mejer, a Dane living in the beautiful island of Mallorca, Spain. I started playing the piano at the age of 9 and was fortunate to receive classes by masters such as Frans Bak, Søren Svagin and Lars Brogaard.
After many years of musical experimentation which included being part of a Danish rock band - I found my passion in jazz and classical piano. A six months trip to Cuba and an intense 8 months¨· jazz-course at Vestbirk Højskole had a great influence on me, but Love has always been my main motivation.
My first love, a beautiful girl from Istanbul, motivated me to compose my own music. And after my divorce 7 years ago, I began working on ‘The Beginning Of Everything’.
With this debut album, I would like to bring my music to a wider audience. Would you like to help me make it possible? Your contribution will allow me to cover the costs that were incurred for the professional recording and mixing of my songs in Bonn with the help of Johannes Kuchta. It will also cover the costs of producing the CD and the creation of a 8-page booklet in collaboration with Kathrin Hufen, a local artist and friend who will take care of the design and create a special painting that will become the cover page.
Rewards And Estimated Calendar
For helping me to make the creation of my debut album possible, you will receive a signed copy of the final CD. All backers living on Mallorca can meet me in person by choosing to have their CD delivered to them by me personally.
