MOUNTAINS by Toni Dimitrov

"Macedonia is a land of mountains. The whole country is covered with 
mountains. With this untouched nature. I have passed a part of my live 
up there on these mountains This huge spirits. Heading up to their peaks 
. Sharing these outstanding moments together.  Meeting with rabbits, 
bears, chamois, the sunset, sunrise, snow, and rain, wind... in spring, 
winter, summer and autumn. During the day and deep in the night. Mostly 
alone, but not lonely.

"The call of the mountain is a call for a return to the nature. Return 
to yourself. It is a Call for tranquility and connecting with everything 
around you. The call of the mountain means also incentive to overcome 
yourself, the one as you know to this moment. And in the next youll get 
stronger, more confident. This is not an urge for competition, sports or 
conquest. There is a deeper sense in it. The climb to the peak has a 
mystical significance. Metaphysics that you wont find in any other thing 
here on earth. Poetry for the Soul. Ascension.

"Korab, Shar Planina, Baba, Jakupica, Deshat, Krchin, Nidze, Karadzica, 
Dautica, Goleshnica, Kitka, Galichica, Stogovo, Jablanica, Osogovski, 
Bistra, Belasica, Ilinska, Plakenska, Bigla, Skopska Crna Gora, Zheden, 
Vodno... are just some of them...

"From these mountains and mountain ranges, 13 are higher than 2,000 
meters (and for the Balkan conditions these are high mountains. When 
youll put  all the mountains on one another, their common height would 
reach outstanding 68 km! All these mountains have around 250 
characteristic peaks, of which hundreds are higher than 2,000 meters. 
Thus, Macedonia has the most mountains in terms of its area, not only in 
Europe, but also beyond.

"These are the beauties of Macedonia. Its untouched nature. Its 
mountains. Places with magical potential. Places where the sacred merges 
with the profane. Where you are closer to God. For the uninitiated 
seemingly inhospitable places that we should beware of, but when you get 
there, there is no turning back. They’ll call you to come back again and 
again. And you’ll always experience them differently; you will see 
something new when heading to the peak. And the peak is a sanctuary for 
the devotees, who can feel the call of the mountain. And they head 
straight away...

"At this sound piece you’ll hear how the mountain sounds. What is going 
on around me when immersed with this endless ocean of sound. You’ll just 
need to close your eyes, and open your ears. Sharpen your senses and 
forget about everything that you brought with you from down there.

"'Life is a mountain that is set as something that stands between that 
world where we were before the Mountain show up and the world in which 
we will be when the mountain stays behind us. Reaching of the peak means 
gathering of these worlds and our life and the mountain itself - in one.

'The Peak exists. The Peak is great.

'Where is the Peak!

'Peak is a hundred steps above? To get a hundred steps above, means to 
reach the Peak!'

– From The Metaphysics of the Peak by Ferid Muhic

"Toni Dimitrov is a cultural producer and cultural explorer, radio host 
and radio activist, philosopher and communicologist, poet and 
mountain/rock climber... but also sound artist, dj, designer, organizer, 
label owner, based in Skopje, Macedonia. When at home and not traveling 
he is doing various projects that keeps him busy, from art and music 
that is obviously the main focus of his hectic lifestyle, but also other 
projects including radio, sound art and field recordings, curating a

radio program 'post global: conceptual program for new music’ broadcasts 
on music radio Kanal 103 for 15 years already and it is dedicated to 
contemporary electronic music, soundscape and field recordings. Sound 
wise at the moment he is active with the sound_00 moniker, producing
