The Four Seasons.Altered

Alimori (Mischa Blanos) & Dragusin – The Four Seasons.Altered LP

Remember Vivaldi’s concerti The Four Seasons? Well, in our quest to make our own part of the job in raising awareness of Earth’s situation, we remembered that famous work as well. Together with Dragusin, we reimagined 4 pieces for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, telling a different story of those seasons through piano, synths, computer and modular. Enjoy this ambient album signed under my alias Alimori and Dragusin released today.

A four piece ambient & downtempo album shaped by the cycles of seasons, where Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are embodied through piano, synths, computer and modular. This collaborative project of Alimori and Dragusin is equipped with our modern gear – acoustic manipulation by electronic means and charged with the pressing activist message – altered nature. If you think climate change doesn’t exist or that our relationship to nature doesn’t drive pandemics, this piece of work will not make you a believer. But if you do, you may feel a part of a larger we.

Alimori, aka Mischa Blanos, is one of those artists who are tirelessly working to escape the tedium of composing around a single genre. With each migration he brings something new into the next one as if hunting down moods, feelings and soundscapes in a nomadic way of life. This is his first migration into the ambient genre.
With his extensive expertise as a sound engineer, Dragusin is meticulously weaving the complex fabric of percussion, loops and modular synthesis, as well as creating rich and organic sounds with his own field recordings. Purchase

Bucharest is changing

There are loads of emotions when I perform home. Here are my friends and family, people whom I grew up with and people who helped me grow. And I found out new people willing to help me grow further, just by opening up to my work.

The solo piano project took form in Germany and I couldn’t help wonder if it resonates with the Romanian audience. And it does. I felt welcomed. Thank you, people of Bucharest.


Piano sessions: a sensory experience

What do books and music have in common? I could think about loads of things, but this time the connection was me and Raum B. Performing among books was a first for me and it was like borrowing their lives to blend them into my music and create something new. Great experience for me and for those who attended, as Raum B says in the after concert review. Thank you for having me!

„Those who could not attend Mischa Blanos’ concert on Saturday missed a great experiment!. A musical shock you could not resist.
As he explained to his audience, he normally plays on a “real” piano. However he managed to widespread the strength of his music with his keyboard and his computer. Great sounds! Powerful and inviting to take off from the planet earth to reach the parallel universe he is creating with his notes.
He composes a contemporary music that breaks the invisible wall of inaccessibility some people can expect when thinking of (classical) piano’s music. His music is something you can not resist. You can not help catching, hanging on every note he is creating. The tempo is taking on you: deep, full of life and contrasts, it is a moment you have to live. Jazzy, experimental… who knows! His music is just powerful and impossible to classify! It is his music! ”
