Cornel Wilczek

Cornel Wilczek is an Australian award winning screen composer and music producer. He is driven by experimentation and the desire to find something new in music. Working with colour and contrast, he combines lush, acoustic sources with home-made electronics to take listeners to new places and help create unique worlds for his projects. 

Cornel runs and owns recording studio in South Melbourne, Australia. It is a high-end, acoustically designed space that facilitates creative development where he has produced many musical artworks.

Some people find it hard at the best of times to find their creativity or keep up producing work at a high quality level. Imagine doing it with a condition that makes you feel like your body is on fire.

In this episode we have a chat with Cornel about how he handles his auto-immune condition – Ankylosing spondylitis and lives his life to its fullest and what happens between his plans that has been the most important factor.

Some little pearls from our chat:

The importance of movement

Mixing up your movement to help keeping the inflammation at bay

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Even fun things like skipping, trampolining and hula hooping.

Even though it sounds counterintuitive when flared up and all Cornel wanted to was rest. The only thing that would help his inflammation was to move.

Never give up on trying to make yourself feel better

Doesn’t mean you need to find that river bullet.

Gut health

Finding what foods would flare up his condition was also key to helping

Check out episode two on how food can help your immune system

Ep. 029 – The power of paying it forward – Not so regular Joe interview w/ James Beck The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

In today’s “Not so regular Joe” episode we bring you a special guest all the way from Los Angeles USA, James Beck. James shares with us his incredible story of how he one day decided to give everything he owned away, and travel around 50 states to give his time to others and provide one act of service. In return, he asked those he served to Pay-it-Forward, which started an incredible domino effect in kindness and cooperative community.  James explains anyone can start to give back by simply doing an act of service. It can be as simple as smiling at someone in passing or holding a door for someone. Or even simply making eye contact to acknowledge presence. Enjoy the show!
