Steve Sic was raised in Cornwall, Holland, Germany and the U.S.A because he was born to parents who liked to travel a lot. Later he himself bummed around various places including some of the dirtier cities of Northern Europe (Paris,West-Berlin, London, Antwerp etc) and now lives in Holland, where the laws on personal freedom are slightly less fascist and ridiculous then in the rest of the world. From the age of 15 Sic has been an off the wall Gothic-Punk Artist, musician, eco-anarchist, occultist and freedom fighter.
He started writing and performing obscure Ancient and Pagan music in 1995, working mainly on reconstructing early primitive and Celtic Iron Age music, seeking to rediscover the musical roots of Northern Europe. During this process he found(ed) Omnia in 1996. He taught himself to play all his chosen instruments which now include: Irish low whistle, Neo-celtic double flutes, Seljefloit, Kaval, Shawm, Bodhrán,Dombek, Darabuka, Davúl, Cajon, Dombek, Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, and a thousand prehistoric ethnic instruments. Jenny taught him how to play the harp...
He loves all the birds, animals and plants on this miraculous living planet , he hates most members of the genus "homo sapiens sapiens" and he spends most of his time loving and worshipping his wife Jenny and ignoring the other naked monkeys.
A more detailed biography
Sic has (up to now) lived in thirty-five different houses in six different countries on two different continents, and as most of this was in Northern Europe this presumably makes him a "European".As a young runaway kid he has lived on the streets and at times he's even had to beg for food. He's never had a 9 to 5 job, he's never finished any form of school. Because a significant part of his early upbringing took place in various rustic villages surrounded by a sufficiency of relatively unspoiled nature to convince him of the importance of the living planet and his part in it. He realised at quite an early age that humans are just spoiled naked space-monkeys with delusions of grandeur who are going to destroy the world they live in due to their in-built stupidity and the fact that they are obviously not natural to this world... This inspired him to style himself as a tree hugging, nature loving, recalcitrant neo-pagan, admitting himself to be "just an animal like the birds and the beez" and worshipping the Earth (Gaia) and the Creative Soul of the Universe (Chaos) as well as a host of made-up weird and wonderful Gods, Goddesses, Fairies and nature Spirits instead of the silly self-important notions and religions of space-monkeykind (ie: ONE God, Money, Royalty, Science etc.).
In the 90's he helped found the "Chaos in Motion" ART foundation to further the cause of Chaos and Creativity in the world of the poor deluded and philosophically retarded space monkeys.
Sic holds a doctors degree in Bovine Faecal studies, and throughout the years he has earned a dubious living at various professions, including: cartoonist, farm labourer, archeological draughtsman, sword-fighter, beggar, theater props builder, games designer, actor, painter, chaos-monk, fire-artist, eco-activist, philosopher, festival organiser and music producer. Also he has been known to play various different instruments sufficiently well to get away with being regarded as a professional musician. And now he has attained the coveted title "Pope of Paganism" which means whatever you would like it to mean ;-)
His hobbies include: reading, appreciating fine weed and other such gifts of mother nature, writing music and poetry, writing about himself in the third person, reading some more, making love (a lot), sitting under trees listening to birds, playing games and reading even yet still more.
He doesn't like international corporations, bureaucratic laws, the EU, "one-god" dogmas (dogmas are a bitch ;-) and the perverse concept of "Royalty" within a so-called enlightened society (he doesn't really like society much either). He believes that animals and plants have a conscious mind and feelings, he believes that Love is the most important driving force in our universe (even more powerful than greed), and that "seemingly intelligent life" is the most fun a bunch of sub-atomic particles can have together (as well as being absolute proof of there being "higher powers" with a sense of humor).
Steve Sic currently lives with his wife Jenny and his kids Damien Raven and Myrthe Fortuna in a tiny house in Holland stuffed to the brim with instruments and artworks and mice (without clogs though), where Jenny and Sic spend most of their time (when not performing) composing PaganFolk, smoking homegrown grass, talking to plants and keeping their Pagan-Shamanic 'heya-heya' credibility just beyond a socially acceptable level... And as ever Chaos rules all, but gently......
