Text and music
Ulla van Daelen: »One of my personal favorites is the combination of harp and lyrics or prosa.
So I was thrilled with the project to create and play the music for an audio-book.«
Stars from one of the main German TV-stations, ZDF, present fairy tales from all over the world in combination with my harp music.
The first audio-book “Märchenwelten I” become such a big success that the famous German audio-book publisher “Hörverlag” released a second one “Märchenwelten II”.
The profit inures to the benefit of an aid organization against hunger in the world, called “Welthungerhilfe”.
You can order the audio-books at Hörverlag.
Another wonderful experience: Dancing school leader Heike Schrey and Uschi Vleek “Harlekin” made a choreography of my »CD Surprise«.
In June 2007 we had the Live-Performance with the Ulla van Daelen Trio and 60 dancers of the dancing school “Harlekin” on »Burg Wilhelmstein«.
That was absolutely unique and a real world premiere!!!
Have you seen my Videoclip “Story”? It’s probably the world’s first chillout-video played on a concert harp!
This videoclip, designed by Jochen Peters, tells an usual “harp-story”. The title “Story” from CD “Surprise” got its “chillout flair” in the studios of Bionic Ballroom and was running on ONYX-TV for months.
It’s an impressive experience to see pictures that have been painted to my music.
A class of 14 year-old students painted these pictures in oil and pastel. They are inspired by my »CD Surprise«. I think, it’s worth showing them.
