  • I am so glad to participate in this amazing compilation titled 'The Music of Ancient gReece: an appReciation' on Surrism-Phonoethics curated by Igor Jovanovic ( LEZET ). My track is titled 'Atermon' and is loosely based on the well known ancient Seikilos melody.

    The music of ancient Greece was almost universally present in society, from marriages and funerals to religious ceremonies, theatre, folk music and the ballad-like reciting of epic poetry. It thus played an integral role in the lives of ancient Greeks. There are significant fragments of actual Greek musical notation as well as many literary references to ancient Greek music, such that some things can be known—or reasonably surmised—about what the music sounded like, the general role of music in society, the economics of music, the importance of a professional caste of musicians, etc" (Wikipedia,  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_ancient_Greece).
    The tracks on this compilation are either covers of the remaining fragments of Ancient Greek music, or a reflection of the participating artists on the cultural legacy of Ancient Greece and an attempt to find the music of Ancient Greece in their own compositional approaches.

  • I am more than happy to participate in 'Ombre Et Lumière' compilation on dhatūrā records. My track is titled 'Als de dwaas zou volharden in zijn dwaasheid zou hij wijs worden' (In English: If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise) a William Blake line out of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. 

    A short track based on mostly acoustic sounds and vocals aiming at innate weirdness, generative evolution and 'cyclical' melody. Enjoy. A free download.

  • Proud to be part of LEZET -2''- released with CLASSWAR KARAOKE(UK)! The album contains the EP of 2-second songs 10 remixes/reinterpretations of fellow artists.

    Driven by the idea that came from a song I did a while back, I wanted to simply make an EP of 2-second tracks , but it became so much more than that. This idea turned into a collection of 2-second tracks that could be looped and hopefully perceived as genuine microsongs that have a clear melodic or rhythmic centre. It so happened that the stems I made and used on these were given a whole new life by my friends who also happen to be extraordinary music-makers. They provided an entire collection of songs that way surpassed the core EP and made me realise once again that collaboration and exchange are the only real path to music exploration and growth / Igor Jovanovic, March 2015

    The project started when D@P posted his original sin worldwide, waiting for to be transformed... 
    ... It became a sweet ghoul in Hamburg, 
    walked in Saint Jean as a ghost, 
    was reincarnated in black cat in NRW, 
    tuned to firebird in Le Mans and Athens 
    breathed old ashes in Valparaisao, 
    rose in the lost air of Toulouse, 
    as a phoenix in Québec started to Pb82 2 Au79 
    reborned in Anthens as a new world 
    and released in a virtual and digital niche in Grenoble.

  • performance contact improvisation

    από την "ανοιχτή ομάδα" έρευνας του contact improvisation

    Αντί κειμένου .. ένα απόσπασμα από συνέντευξη της Nancy Stark Smith:

    "Τι πιστεύεις ότι συγκινεί περισσότερο το κοινό σε μια παράσταση Contact Improvisation ;
    Νομίζω, η απροσποίητη και ακατέργαστη σωματικότητα και η καθαρότητα που αυτή φέρνει. Ο κόσμος μπορεί να δει αληθινά σώματα, που με το αληθινό τους το βάρος συνδέονται με τις φυσικές δυνάμεις, αφήνονται σ' αυτές, αρπάζονται και παίζουν μαζί τους σε επίπεδο και μυϊκού και νευρικού συστήματος. Είναι εκπληκτικό σε πιο βαθμό μεταδίδεται στο κοινό αυτός το είδος της επικοινωνίας. Πρόκειται για κιναισθητική μετάδοση... Ο θεατής νιώθει το ίδιο του το σώμα... βλέπει σε μικρογραφία την ανθρώπινη φύση, την κίνηση, την διέγερση, την παύση, τα διλήμματα, την συγκίνηση, την ικανότητα... και όλα αυτά σε μια όχι γραμμική, όχι αφηγηματική φόρμα. Και νομίζω ότι ο κόσμος ενδιαφέρεται γι αυτό... μπορείς ακόμα να δεις έναν έρωτα, μια μάχη, είναι σαν να κοιτάς ένα ανοιχτό βιβλίο... και ο θεατής έχει ελεύθερη σχέση μ' αυτό, μπορεί να το δει μπορεί και όχι... Αυτό που σίγουρα μένει, είναι η κιναισθητική μεταβίβαση... αυτό είναι πράγματι πολύ δυνατό..."

  • Jii was diagnosed with stage 3 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2008 and she has been fighting it ever since. During 2008 she was told to make out a Living Will of Testament and to find a proper guardian for her daughter. Thankfully, the cancer has recently gone into remission but it is non curable and is expected to return once the cancer cells become active again. During her illness and recovery, she had no health insurance and she could not work. As of April 1st, she will be declared homeless and she is searching to find a shelter where she can stay until she finds work and affordable housing. The good news is that she now has health insurance in the state of Minnesota of which she has fought hard and long to obtain.

    In honor of Jii, this fundraiser was put together by Gimu and her friends to help her out during a dark time in hopes that there is light in her future. The artists on this compilation have generously donated a song with no expected compensation. This is a small example of what we as artists can do by coming together and making a deeper impact on another's life - in this case a fellow musician. We have come to know Jii through her music and beautiful soul - please join us in lending her a hand.

    In Jii's words describing her music:

    Analogue, Ambient/Dark, Drone, Experimental Noise & Idm are where my musical passion thrives with a cinematic touch. Self taught in the area of music theory and incorporating real instruments: piano, violin, cello, Native flute & Native drumming can be found in many of my releases. Positive energies evolve creating soundscapes of emotion; many of the elements stem from my Native American (Ojibwe) heritage, these elements easily create their own fusion with originality, putting in motion, and a reflection of me; resulting in the ongoing project of Jii-Music.

    After many years of composing music and performing live in classical violin/piano concerto competitions in my adolescent years, given honorable mention by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in my adult life and performing traditional Native American dance in intertribal powwows within the United States; my students and friends felt it was time to start releasing and sharing my unreleased music publicly or possibly look into some music netlabels. In 2012, my first EP and my first full album were released on a French netlabel, Sirona-Records. I’ve continued to release music in 2013 on CRL Studios, Treetrunk Records and Solanic Netlabel. The day I stop composing music will be the day I stop breathing.
