Under construction! We will be live soon. For now, visit owenhanner.bandcamp.com to listen and contact me.
In the world of my music there’s a new economy: fairer, where exchange is natural and not overseen by vast artificial markets and the sheer luck of finances.
To help restore nature’s way of operating, I offer my music and services by open donation.
Here’s how it works. Listen to my music either here in the soundcloud app, or in bandcamp at the top of the page. Then:
1. Choose your amount and donate here
2. Contact me below, naming the songs you’d like
3. Receive directly from me
It’s not the most efficient method (and bear with me whilst I look for something smoother) – but it is the most personal and real. We get to interact with each other – and nobody loses money to paypal, bandcamp, or VAT/IVA corporations.
Thank you for trying it out!

My music is played from a space of deep silence, joy & peace: a communion from wordless within, to wordless within. Instantly understood.
Playing in a state of pure flow: to meet pure life beyond words: to be lost and free in an infinite cascade, where there’s togetherness, freedom, immense peace, and an automatic re-harmonising of everything. A clear expression of love, needing no translation.
Music has always the potential to heal or to harm, depending on what the musician is accessing and broadcasting. Certain instruments also work on specific areas of the body: harps and flutes being particularly favoured in ancient medicine for their ability to release inner knots and rejoin with the flow of life.
(You can see a signature of this in the hand-gestures of harping. See how it resembles a weaver at work. Or how a drummer’s hands makes gestures that would stimulate the blood and circulation if transposed to the body.)
But beyond the instruments and the notes is the player. What does that player bring from within themselves? There is something other than skill or the lack of it, that determines if music can heal. Skill can even be a distraction from the core energy of the player: which is really what is being transmitted to your ears in every song.
Just like groundwater, we all share a common source. But some wells are disused, dry, stagnant, or shallow. Others are fresher, draw deep and nourish whomever seeks them.
This is the magic of music when the player is attuned to peace. If you are drawn to my music, the peace in me is reaching the peace in you and strengthening it. Then the music really becomes a living expression of love – a dance. For truly there is nothing static or neutral in what we consume through our senses.
Water communes instantly, refreshes profoundly. Nothing is left unreached if you let it run deep. It stirs awake the seeds asleep within, which we may have completely forgotten. Deserts may burst into bloom and colour at its touch. So are our human lives and societies shaped by the dream in song. As the forest follows after the tendril’s lightest searching, so may our real lives expand from the softest whisper of song.
My music is made on whatever instruments I have to hand, wherever I go. Currently that is Celtic Harp, whistles, keyboard, guitar and voice.
It’s a continual improvisation of self-revealing patterns in ebb and flow, borne of the electricity that gathers in stillness. The art is in receptivity, and the rest is automatic alchemy. (All the arts being an interactive, harmonising mirror that can shape an environment in its image.)
Teaching & Sessions
I offer intuitive, explorational lessons in many instruments, plus a fresh approach to music theory, and Creative 1-2-1s for anyone wishing to deepen their musical expression and creativity. Fun, sandbox-mode spontaneity. By donation.
Soundtracks, backing tracks, session music, live events, musical accompaniment for classes – whatever you imagine.
Set up your environment to relax, listen and let go. I can play live for you using my professional microphones wherever you are.
I also offer a range of readings in Human Design: an in-depth, practical expansion of astrology for individuals, families and groups.
