....winter




...lots of snow, holidays, laziness, solitude. Another span of hybernating till about end of april... Fuck! but it's got a good side to it too! In fact i have been pretty busy playing with all the material i had recorded this year, so much to do and now i will have plenty of time on my hands. I like winters for this. Loaded my shelves with a bunch of inspirational books and films that will keep me busy for a while. My latest discovery - Takashi Miike's "MPD Psycho" mini TV series - i swallowed it in one day - wish i could understand Japanese to watch the original...

Lately have been listening to the bands like Sleep, Skepticism, Beehoover, Yob and Twin Eagle they inspire me a lot especially Eagle Twin! Another one that really moves me is Of the Wand and the Moon. My mind is wanderring around the idea of starting a new music project which i already have the gut feeling for but can't really put it into words or sounds yet but it will definitely include field recordings... The new year will show.

Cult of Dionys



A pair of Mainades, draped with vines and a panther skin, present a hare to Dionysos. The god holds a wine-cup.

bucket session




Last weekend i went to my parents to help them harvesting potatoes - i was using a metal bucket there that i found to be more talented than the other ones. I called it a "singing" bucket and took it to the bath house for an hour of experimenting. Here is an impovisation that i think came out nicely.

recent discovery - Cocorosie


this is the kind of music that really inspires me to move on !!!
it is hard to express how swept away i am by this band - Cocorosie!
i adore every single thing about them - the lo fi format, the unusual mixture of sounds, the mood and the freaky sense of rhythm, the performance itself and of course the incredible unique vocals!

so far this song called "Black Rainbow" is my most favorite.

summer


…exciting time of starting to work on something new…

there is a concept show planned for the end of September 2009 that needs a soundtrack, something abstract and very minimalistic.

…and there are a couple of online collaborations being considered. It’s going to be a very busy summer!
