New compilation from Infiné Music , #Explorer3, is being released and I’m proud to be on the track list with the piece Stoic dance. This compilation is one hell of a ride throughout the world. Pakistan, China, Argentina, Germany, France, all these and more other countries have their own representatives choosing to tell a story for the ears and mind. It’s a great deal of effort they put into it. Scanning, searching the unexplored areas of internet and discovering these emerging artists is simply a gift.
My latest piece of work, Geckos seems like is getting attention and is being praised by unexpected people. I got emails and comments with lots of thumbs up for the creative rhythm borrowed from jazz improvisation, fast finger technique I use and the particular atmosphere that this tune creates. And a really nice surprise came from gripemachine who reviewed this piece in a nutshell but so honest. He also is wondering where the noise is coming from in the record. Oh yes, the noise is coming from the mechanics of the piano, as he correctly assumes, but also from my voice. I tend to be one with the music I make, so I let my feelings flow and with them yelling or moaning just burst. Being compared to Chilly Gonzales but in the same time admitting my own particular style as a musician was nice too.
The 405 magazine is “the” magazine if you want to discover new sounds, new artists, new music. Whether is unconventional, experimental or mainstream music, they are inexhaustible in finding and presenting – simply put – good music. They found me too.
Here’s the New Music Dispatch where my piece Geckos is mentioned. The Geckos will surely get you home.
