On March 11th, 2011, an unusual event occurred. The brand new CD "Rock Of Asia" has finally arrived in my office. The collection of songs reflects the thoughts that I have for the ever faster technology and ego driven society. This day was going to be a celebration for my new music. I took my car and started listening to it. On the 4th song called “Ocean” was playing and I felt the shake.

From the moment, the eyes of the world watched the catastrophe that took place in my homeland. Thinking back at the moment, I was stunned by the fact that I was listening to "Ocean" when it hit. How the lyrics of the song display the morn of the people who lost families, friends and homes is just beyond coincidence.

This album was meant to be born on the 11th of March. It is now dedicated to the victims and the memories of their lives. I also drove to the hard hit area twice in March with food, water and daily necessities to deliver them to the survivors. Because I just had to. Here is the video of the 2 trips that I made between Mar.15th and 24th uploaded on YouTube.

We will remember that this album "Rock Of Asia" was born with the historical earthquake. The moment that we came to know the wrath of the nature will be remembered as long as the music lasts.
