Mars Lasar – Glacier Point (Spotify)

“Glacier point belongs to Mars Lasar album Yosemite and one thing is certain for the enthousiastic listener of new age classical music, he is going to experience a masterfuly balanced composition of string arrangements, smooth percussion, tribal drums embellished with natural sound effects creating a perfect fall canvas”

-Nagamag.com

About This Song:Yosemite also has its reflective moments best-heard courtesy of the opening chords of “Glacier Point”. Initiated with gorgeous string arrangements, the song is then driven by the intricate yet smooth percussion arrangement. Employing flutes, synths, some tribal drums and the occasional natural sound effect (thankfully, not used constantly to the point of saturation), Glacier Point makes for a very good backdrop to backroad drives, amidst the rapidly changing leaves of fall.About Mars LasarBorn in Germany and raised in Australia, Mars Lasar is a prolific keyboardist and composer.

Frank Iva – Wreckage (Video)

“Wreckage by Frank Iva is a deep emotive solo piano which explores the shades of nostalgy through a well gently performance.”

-Nagamag.com

FRANK IVA is a Ugandan-born American music producer based in San Diego, CA. His work is an exciting fusion of electronic and live music with hints of jazz, hiphop, classical and gospel influence.

Even though his dream was to be a concert pianist, he first attended college as a Statistics major at the prestigious Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Through college and beyond, Frank coached worship teams, taught piano, and worked as a record engineer. In 2006, he moved from Kampala to the U.S. to pursue his dreams as a producer and artist.

As a black international student pursuing a degree in Music from Judson University, Frank’s worldview was soon greatly impacted through working as Worship Arts Director for a predominantly white evangelical church in the suburbs of Chicago. He faced both overt and subtle racism in America, that left him hurt and confused about his purpose.

A series of life-altering events took Frank through a time of no music, no church; of love, loss, and redemption; and across the country to San Diego, CA where he now resides. His work as Music Director at The Rock Church, as well as his MBA in Project Management has propelled his path back to his dreams.

Today, you can find Frank Iva merging his love of Chicago’s improv Jazz with that relaxed California electro vibe, with his first single ‘Conversations’, released May 2019. His anticipated uptempo followup, ‘Bassline’, was released December 2019. He will be releasing his first EP in early 2020. You can also view video of live production and performance in Frank’s ‘Iva On The Track” series on YouTube.

Leonardo the Space Pianist Interview on Nagamag

Leonardo the Space Pianist Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
My music style’s roots are a crossover of different experiences, the seed is in my background as classical pianist and metal keyboardist. I describe my music as Contemporary Space Music, where there are influences of cinematic, experimental, neo-classical, progressive metal and wave genres.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I was born in Venice, Italy, and discovered the piano at the age of 6 and astronomy at 9. At the age of 12, by reading Isaac Asimov, playing Beethoven and Bach, listening to Queen, Steve Vai and Robert Miles, I decided I would travel the Space and play my music outside planet Earth. So I became a professional pianist AND an aerospace engineer.
As a pianist I graduated at the Music Conservatory in Italy, studying composition and developing my passion for synths and electronic music. I was mentored by Jordan Rudess, Dream Theater's keyboardist. In the meanwhile I graduated with a PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova, researching on hypervelocity impacts and space safety. During those years I did a concert at the ESRANGE Space Center in cold Sweden while taking part in his first space mission with the SCRAT Project, a very important milestones of my Journey.
In 2006 I created the Music House to develop my View - the project 'Nullo Die Sine Nota’. The Latin sentence means 'Not A Day Without a Note'. I recorded four studio albums and two EPs, with always new music in the flow. I played in several countries like Italy, Germany, UK, Netherlands, and Turkey. I teamed up with many artists during the years, like Yossi Sassi, Aliki Chrysochou and Anna Utopia Giordano. In the last nine years, I have worked with several dancers too; the latest chapter of this experience is 'BlackShip', an innovative show for contemporary music, contemporary fusion dance and visual art.
In 2016 I moved to Malta. I wanted to deeper discover myself, islands are the perfect metaphor of our planet, and an excellent place for freediving…and it is actually working!
Currently I am developing further my space music and researching and lecturing at University in aerospace.
Nearly forgetting, I am also passionate about martial arts and photography.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
The very first memory I have is of myself at 3 years old with a yellow toy-piano. I liked to improvise (clearly!) with it and sometimes to disassemble (maybe an early sign of engineering). Besides this I realized that I wanted to become a pianist when I was 6 years old, I remember there was another kid playing an old upright piano at school, seeing the other school mates around happy and smiling. When he finished I have vivid in my mind that I played my first real piano key, thinking: Wow! I want to play it and share music with people!
So a few months later, I started my musical journey.


Nagamag:
How did the Covid19 pandemic influence your artistic activity?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am seeing it as an opportunity of growth, despite the difficult moment that everyone is facing. I increased considerably my online activity, publishing every week vlog episodes on my YouTube channel, starting to stream regularly my music performances on Twitch and releasing with a higher frequency new music on the main music distribution platforms, like Spotify. The effects of the pandemic will take quite a lot in my opinion to be completely managed and society and music industry will be quite different in the near future. 2 new EPs and 4 singles are in the workflow for the upcoming months.


Nagamag:
Who is the Space Pianist?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am a Dreamer that step by step is designing his way to perform the first piano concert on Mars.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
IGORRR "Downgrade Desert"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
Infected Mushroom "Heavyweight"

Sync Zephyr – Away (Video)

“Away by Sync Zephyr is a deep ambient emotional theme with lush pad & strings, gently piano keys and a cinematic approach which captures through the sound harmonies the memories of freedom feeling, as where you are on a wonderful place, simple alone, you and nature.”

-Nagamag.com

Inspired by the range of emotions experienced when exploring a place that instantly commits itself to one’s memory for the rest of their life.

Sync Zephyr’s favourite habits include going for walks and searching for strange, obscure corners of the internet. These are the things by which most of his music is inspired.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Obsqure:
i had a few years of music theory when i was a kid. i also was a cello player. i didn't follow up the line because of my studies and sports. At some time i had to choose between being a professional swimmer and a musician. i went for swimming but i have never really stopped listening to music and digging very deep into it. i remember listening to different kind of music on the radio and trying to dismantle every track even though i wasn't into music composition yet, i had my own way of listening individually to the sounds and different tracks in a song. i was already analyzing songs structures and melodies without even knowing it.
i remember getting a trial version of FL Studio (Called Fruity Loops Studio at that time) in a CD-Rom. i was 11 years old and very curious. And that's where the story begins.
i went by different nicknames, the normal curriculum of any artist i guess, i composed different music styles mainly House Music and groovy stuff like Tech-House, Deep-House and Progressive House. i began afterward looking for a specific artistic identity and things lead me to what i am doing now.

DEADLIFE – Her Broken Smile (feat. Tessa Hedrick) | Visualizer | (Video)

“Through stunning visuals, DEADLIFE with his new song together with Tessa Hedrick hypnotize us into his dark epic synthwave bassline and the heartwarming vocals of Tessa gives a memorable blend. Partly goes melancholic yet steps also in darker places through its lush harmonies. ”

-Nagamag.com

Hailing from Manchester, UK, DEADLIFE is set to confirm his status as one of the most vital artists in the burgeoning darksynth scene with an eighth full length album this November. Before that, though, the first single ‘Her Broken Smile’ offers a magic glimpse into what to expect from this assured studio wizard. The stunning new single follows acclaimed past releases including ‘Singularity’ which crashed into the Billboard Electronic Album Sales Chart at #12, as well as hitting the iTunes chart in 2020. The new single again explores a darker niche within the wider synthwave scene, and is inspired by cyberpunk imagery, 80s sci-fi films and turn of the millennium computer game soundtracks. Download / stream here: https://deadlife.lnk.to/HerBrokenSmileDEADLIFE a.k.a. Ed Hawx has proven to be a hugely prolific artist over the last few years. Across seven full length albums, he has helped to drive the synthwave scene forwards with a particular penchant for the shadowy end of the spectrum that has become known as darksynth. The former drummer is a self-taught producer with a real mastery of his machines and software, which has seen him become one of the most exciting and influential names in the scene. Some try to make comparisons to leading artists like Sebastian, Com Truise, and Kavinsky, but DEADLIFE goes his own way, building on the traditions of Vangelis, Underworld and Daft Punk and taking them far into the future with his own sense of style. The sound of DEADLIFE appeals to anyone who loves dark melodies and hard-hitting electronic beats. DEADLIFE’s music has always appeared on NewRetroWave, the leading label and YouTube channel for the synthwave scene. Since day one, NewRetroWave has championed the retro synth-driven sound and every significant artist in the scene has released on the label at some point. It continues to expand and drive the fast-growing genre’s evolution through a skillful A&R process and now entertains over 1 million loyal followers on YouTube. The formidable new single ‘Her Broken Smile’ is DEADLIFE’s homage to an 80’s power ballad featuring singer Tessa Hedrick, a well-regarded metal vocalist who hails from Nevada. Her vocals are angelic here as they float way up top above a jagged synth bass and darkly emotive atmosphere. The breakdown allows the purity of Hedrick’s voice to shine through, off-set by the pixelated melodies and crashing, maximal beats. The whole track is expertly produced and captures a sense of emotional turmoil that everyone can relate to. Next single ‘Drift’ is to follow on October 23rd before the full album in November 20th, and already this single suggests DEADLIFE is in the form of his life.https://www.instagram.com/deadlifecorps/

Mounika. – ailleurs (Soundcloud)

Mounika. – ailleurs (Soundcloud)
(Soundcloud)

Ailleurs” lures you into a dreamy balance of light & dark with Mounika’s signature lofi hip hop beats.

About the artist:
« Mounika. comes from the American version of Godard’s film « à bout de souffle”.

The end scene accompanies the lead actress, Monica, to music by Phillip Glass – Opening. “This is the first track I wanted to learn on the piano,” Mounika.

Somewhere in the west of France, in a student’s room, the artist Mounika.is far from imagining the impact that his very first productions will have…

From a young age, Mounika. already had a passion for music, his great curiosity led him to try his hand at many instruments, eventually gravitating towards the piano. Years go by and as he explores the dense universe of electronic music, his thirst for novelty is constantly growing. Iconic artists such as Bonobo, Air, Moby and Wax Tailor were a great source of inspiration.

With musical production now an integral part of his life, Mounika.’s intention is to offer a dreamlike space, through his music, as his musical influences have done for him before. Mounika.’s inexhaustible creativity blends with his great eagerness to share his music with the world. Mounika. publishes his first productions on SoundCloud, his delicate, sensitive and melancholic melodies never cease to resonate further and further afield, finding new audiences.

In June 2017, together with a group of friends, Mounika. decides to unveil his first album “How Are You” on Spotify, which contains among others the track “Cut My Hair”. In just a few months and against all odds due to the almost non-existent means of promotion, the track amasses 15+ million plays throughout the world and allows him to make a name for himself. It is from this moment that the magic happens, as if Mounika.’s music has the power to touch a part of sensibility in each of us, a universal shared feeling.

Mounika. returns this year with a new electro chill album. discreet by nature. We will be announcing more news and updates on May 15. At this time, Mounika. returns with his first offering since his debut LP. The single is titled “Intro (I m sorry)” and is released on April 10, 2020.

In one image, Mounika.’s musical universe would be a rainy cloud which, between two showers, lets a summer sun shine through.

Sbeady – Daydreams (Spotify)

Sbeady – Daydreams
(Spotify)

Sbeady – Daydreams (Spotify)

A song which let you calm down and dream when the day into too much stress and hectic. Dirty lofi samples and spheric synths for some dreamy vibes.

Few words about Sbeady:
It all began in 2002, when Sbeady visited a good friend who was all into hip hop, graffiti and beat making. He saw a Zoom RT-234 drum computer lying on the floor and gave it a try.

He was immediately fascinated by creating own sounds, grooves and music this way. Over the years, the urge to improve and refine his skills was driven by his love for electronic music.

Sbeady adds a personal touch to every one of his beats with his experience, knowledge of the craft or by simply using his intuition, trying to not only broadcast sound, but to communicate feeling.

Despite having a unique way of expressing himself and always trying new & creative things, he always tries to serve the music by understanding the mood of the composition.

The pure love of creating music keeps Sbeady going until today…

NOTI – lympha (Video)

“guitar, keys, beats, it may sound easy for most but few really knows how to catch the right harmonic vibes, tell a right story, mix fine and leave you with a taste of sweet memorable vibes, well one of those few artists are and Noti with his track Lympha at Radicalis. Among the many similar musics we receive, among the thousand releases daily in the genre, few have the right bliss in harmonics and mix. Well done!”

-Nagamag.com

Benjamin Noti is a Basel-based producer and musician. He has worked with Audio Dope, Steff la Cheffe, The Rumours, Greis, Noti Wümié, Manillio, Anna Rossinelli, James Gruntz, Sam Himself, and the Basel Symphony Orchestra, among many others. easing is Noti’s first instrumental solo-production. The recent lockdown afforded the highly sought-after songwriter and instrumentalist an opportunity to craft this production at his home studio. The 5-song EP showcases Noti’s wide-ranging abilities as a songwriter and musician, and draws on his rich experience as a fixture in the Swiss scene. Noti’s diverse influences, unified by his distinct, original style, shine through on lead single “85km/h”; an ode to poised motion, the track pulsates, subtly speeds up and slows down but remains ultimately unstoppable – much like the artist himself. https://www.instagram.com/noti_musik/

Grandbrothers – All The Unknown (Official Audio) (Video)

“Minimalism may sound simple for many, its not. You need good sound design skills and story telling in layering for not be sound empty or boring, here Grandbrothers grab this minimalism from the first seconds and push it far away, to unknown limits. unfolding a dreaming story telling through lush harmonics arps and soft sound. Goosebumps guaranteed!”

-Nagamag.com

The debut single and title track out today from the album “All The Unknown” starts out with the clanging percussive piano figures that have danced across Grandbrothers’ previous terrain, but grows with the intensity of high-octane electronica to cast out allusions of classical romance, guided by emotive, cascading keys that collide with stuttering digital percussion.

The upcoming album maps out a wide-open sound-world of compositional possibilities for pianist Erol Sarp and producer / electronic engineer Lukas Vogel, who have been putting their modern and unique electronic spin on prepared piano since first forming in 2012. Forgoing the need to play every single note live, this new album sees the pair juxtapose the old and new once again, venturing further into the electronic cosmos armed with a grand piano, self-built computer-controlled mechanics, and a new sense of latitude.

The album All The Unknown is set for release January 15th 2021 via City Slang.

Lumiere Interview on Nagamag

Lumiere Interview on Nagamag

Photocredits: George Tatakis


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lumiere:
I believe that my music style moves constantly inside a square the 4 tips of which are a) Modern classical b) Minimalism c) Indie d) Electronic


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Lumiere:
Apart from 3 years of piano lessons when I was in elementary school and some lessons of sax some years ago, I am basically a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and composer. I formed an indie rock band ("Serpentine") when I was studying Physics in the University of Patras in the early 00s and later I released a couple of dream pop albums through 2 independent Greek labels. Since 2016, I am focused on composing instrumental music, releasing my debut album as Lumiere in 2017 and now looking forward to the release of my second album, "Phases" on the 18th September 2020.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Lumiere:
I think the first album that I really loved in its entirety was "Morning Glory" by Oasis, being also one of the first albums that I bought, in my teens. Listening to that album tens of times made me want to write my own songs.


Nagamag:
How does the new album display your growth as Lumiere?

Lumiere:
In my new album, for the first time, I have used extensively percussion and generally rhythmic structures along with the melodic elements for which I have used strings and brass. Apart from that, in almost half the tracks, there are drums and electric bass, creating a music combo of orchestral and indie elements, which is something I have never tried in the past.


Nagamag:
Was there an inspiration behind the rhythmic nature of “Doppler”?

Lumiere:
The Doppler effect in Physics is the change in the frequency of a wave in relation to a moving observer. My inspiration for the music of the song came from this natural effect and as a result came the pulsating drums, marimbas, and the beating of the horns (representing the waves) and the bending notes of the strings (representing the change in frequency).


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Nibana:
There is no "fit all" description as I'm producing quite a lot of diverse genres but most likely chillout and downtempo, some psybient, some bass music and glitch ... I like using the more generic genre electronic or electronica. I've produced some heavy psytrance for a bit, but I didn't stick to it after I released my album.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Nibana:
I'm quite a newcomer in the electronic music genre even tho I've been producing it for a few years (about 8 now). I was mostly raised on my dad's hard rock playlist, 80s music and then fell in love with the metal scene. I've been a metalhead for most of my music journey, listening to the darker genres of it (hence my . My first approach to electronic music and the genres I produce now has been while playing video games (one of my biggest passion), and later during my first raves in France. I then got frustrated to not be able to tweak what I heard and decided to start my own music project. It then grew to an unexpected size and I've been able to tour all around the world and collaborate with my heroes whom many became my friends.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Nibana:
Honestly my entire childhood was filled with music. Both my parents enjoyed it a lot, despite no being musicians, and I've always been highly emotionally struck from movies' scoring to my parents playlist. I started playing guitar as soon as I could and it led me here. I was never planing to become a full time musician (I'm more of a science guy) but seeing my project get bigger motivated me to quit everything for it.

Splinters, kicks in with some super wide, face-melting fuzz bass and a classic square wave arpeggiator. What's that? Two arpeggiators?! A play out between the two arps dancing around one another, adding musical flair. The track has an apt finality in its melody and finally after we get the sample ring out "We were so lost and then it happened, I never saw her again." the track drops to the last dance and we finish the track. Emotional, Powerful and Captivating to say the least.

Leonardo the Space Pianist Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
My music style’s roots are a crossover of different experiences, the seed is in my background as classical pianist and metal keyboardist. I describe my music as Contemporary Space Music, where there are influences of cinematic, experimental, neo-classical, progressive metal and wave genres.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I was born in Venice, Italy, and discovered the piano at the age of 6 and astronomy at 9. At the age of 12, by reading Isaac Asimov, playing Beethoven and Bach, listening to Queen, Steve Vai and Robert Miles, I decided I would travel the Space and play my music outside planet Earth. So I became a professional pianist AND an aerospace engineer.
As a pianist I graduated at the Music Conservatory in Italy, studying composition and developing my passion for synths and electronic music. I was mentored by Jordan Rudess, Dream Theater's keyboardist. In the meanwhile I graduated with a PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova, researching on hypervelocity impacts and space safety. During those years I did a concert at the ESRANGE Space Center in cold Sweden while taking part in his first space mission with the SCRAT Project, a very important milestones of my Journey.
In 2006 I created the Music House to develop my View - the project 'Nullo Die Sine Nota’. The Latin sentence means 'Not A Day Without a Note'. I recorded four studio albums and two EPs, with always new music in the flow. I played in several countries like Italy, Germany, UK, Netherlands, and Turkey. I teamed up with many artists during the years, like Yossi Sassi, Aliki Chrysochou and Anna Utopia Giordano. In the last nine years, I have worked with several dancers too; the latest chapter of this experience is 'BlackShip', an innovative show for contemporary music, contemporary fusion dance and visual art.
In 2016 I moved to Malta. I wanted to deeper discover myself, islands are the perfect metaphor of our planet, and an excellent place for freediving…and it is actually working!
Currently I am developing further my space music and researching and lecturing at University in aerospace.
Nearly forgetting, I am also passionate about martial arts and photography.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
The very first memory I have is of myself at 3 years old with a yellow toy-piano. I liked to improvise (clearly!) with it and sometimes to disassemble (maybe an early sign of engineering). Besides this I realized that I wanted to become a pianist when I was 6 years old, I remember there was another kid playing an old upright piano at school, seeing the other school mates around happy and smiling. When he finished I have vivid in my mind that I played my first real piano key, thinking: Wow! I want to play it and share music with people!
So a few months later, I started my musical journey.


Nagamag:
How did the Covid19 pandemic influence your artistic activity?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am seeing it as an opportunity of growth, despite the difficult moment that everyone is facing. I increased considerably my online activity, publishing every week vlog episodes on my YouTube channel, starting to stream regularly my music performances on Twitch and releasing with a higher frequency new music on the main music distribution platforms, like Spotify. The effects of the pandemic will take quite a lot in my opinion to be completely managed and society and music industry will be quite different in the near future. 2 new EPs and 4 singles are in the workflow for the upcoming months.


Nagamag:
Who is the Space Pianist?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am a Dreamer that step by step is designing his way to perform the first piano concert on Mars.

Goldmund – For a Time (Spotify)

“Through this arp piano simplicity that started with "For A Time" of Goldmund in Western Vinyl, we felt and hope that through this early melancholy and twin peaks mood will be surprised more. And so it happened. Our wishes been heard on second half with again a minimilastic approach of soft synt layering. A harmonic layering which goes the melancholy bit further until it reaches the end, left you with a sweetness of need bit more. Like a good movie which cannot believe thats it and you hope someday the producer give a second chapter. Does he?”

-Nagamag.com

Pennsylvania native Keith Kenniff’s output as Goldmund has established him alongside peers like Hauschka, Nils Frahm, and even his past collaborator Ryuichi Sakamoto, who himself once described Kenniff’s work as “so, so, so beautiful”.

Also known for his work as Helios and as one part of Mint Julep, his recordings as Goldmund tread sincerely along paths laden with dusty timbres, diffuse synthesizer, and soaring string textures tinted by the muted glow of a cloudy analog sky above. More reflective than somber, with an uplifting trail he paves for the listener, today Goldmund shares the new track "For A Time", where Kenniff juxtaposes rippling piano work with a building electronic keyboard background. The results? Something that sounds like hope.

New album The Time it Takes is out October 16th via Western Vinyl.

I used to sing a lot (well maybe I still do?), then started writing music on my own since I found it's way more interesting. In 2017 my first single "Tirta Empul" was released, after that I've been writing many works in the genres of New Age, Neo-classical, ambient and world music.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

The Bergamot:
A big part of our music is the lyrical development and storytelling. We get a lot of that inspiration from old folk music. However, we see ourselves existing in the alternative/pop genre. So we are constantly finding ways to connect the two somehow. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't. Our job is to keep showing up...


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

The Bergamot:
On October 20th, 2017 The Bergamot released the dreamy anthem P.D.R. (Both Records LLC). The single launched the band's career who was then discovered by Matt Wiggins (Adele, U2, Florence and the Machine) and achieved great reviews being called "The hottest emerging music talent" (People) and "a gorgeous sound" (Daily Mirror). Fans have discovered the band through an unbelievable series of music videos released to promote the new album "MAYFLIES". The videos have been heralded by music critics as "Lush" (PARADE) and "The Perfect Blend" (EARMILK). These groundbreaking videos have brought light to difficult topics and continued to build upon the band's momentum from "P.D.R.". The videos have garnered over 150k views on YouTube. Music blogs from all over the world have taken to "MAYFLIES". The band's single "L.A." has landed at the #1 spot on SubmitHub and the group looks to expand it's presence on the radio both domestically and abroad. The Bergamot was invited to open for OneRepublic and perform their first stadium show in early 2020. The Bergamot is composed of husband-wife duo Nathaniel Paul Hoff and Jillian Speece from the post-industrial town of South Bend, IN near the southeastern shores of serene Lake Michigan. The duo is all American sweethearts from the heartland. In a recent interview, Hoff states, "Jillian and I both look back fondly at our years growing up in Indiana." Growing up they both sang and performed in the church band. They pulled on influences ranging from Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Nick Drake, and Bob Dylan. The band's main writer Nathaniel discovered the literary genius of fellow midwestern poet Carl Sandberg and his work capturing the life and strain of American life. "The music and the songwriting itself is pinnacle" Hoff explained to Trend and Chaos (NYC). Telling the American story one word at a time the songs touch on many aspects of American life in 2019.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

The Bergamot:
I remember the first time playing at a coffeehouse in downtown South Bend called Higher Grounds. People had to stand on top of coffee tables to see the show. It changed my life. The cops showed up...


Nagamag:
What's your musical background?

The Bergamot:
We both studied music in college. I (Nathaniel) focused on classical guitar, music theory, and vocal development. Jillian focused primarily on the voice.

Black Bordello – Prufrock (Spotify)

“This is a deep forest of loungish grooves and harmonies through a brilliant structure and elegant vibes.”

-Nagamag.com

This song is influenced by the poem 'The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock' by T S Eliot. It's an art rock/ progressive rock journey narrative that juxtaposes modern materialist lifestyles with a more abstract philosophical perspective. Black Bordello has been described by Loud and Quiet as 'genre-defying' and 'world-building', practices that are soundly demonstrated in Prufrock.

Chris Durkin, Lauren Light – Mind (Spotify)

After the success of his latest singles ‘Slow ft. Akacia’ and ‘Forest Eyes x MILA’, Chris Durkin releases another genre blending hit featuring sultry vocals from Lauren Light.

Both members of an international songwriting super team, Chris and Lauren joined forces on the haunting track ‘Mind'.

With heavy brass hits and percussive sound design, Chris Durkin showcases his production talents, complimented by Lauren’s alluring vocal harmonies. ‘Mind’ is about being lost in your own thoughts, finding solace in solitude, but also the dangers of overthinking.

It’s a song of contrasts, depicting how the mind and the soul are often conflicting with each other, which Chris reflects in the differing sections.

Leonardo the Space Pianist Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
My music style’s roots are a crossover of different experiences, the seed is in my background as classical pianist and metal keyboardist. I describe my music as Contemporary Space Music, where there are influences of cinematic, experimental, neo-classical, progressive metal and wave genres.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I was born in Venice, Italy, and discovered the piano at the age of 6 and astronomy at 9. At the age of 12, by reading Isaac Asimov, playing Beethoven and Bach, listening to Queen, Steve Vai and Robert Miles, I decided I would travel the Space and play my music outside planet Earth. So I became a professional pianist AND an aerospace engineer.
As a pianist I graduated at the Music Conservatory in Italy, studying composition and developing my passion for synths and electronic music. I was mentored by Jordan Rudess, Dream Theater's keyboardist. In the meanwhile I graduated with a PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova, researching on hypervelocity impacts and space safety. During those years I did a concert at the ESRANGE Space Center in cold Sweden while taking part in his first space mission with the SCRAT Project, a very important milestones of my Journey.
In 2006 I created the Music House to develop my View - the project 'Nullo Die Sine Nota’. The Latin sentence means 'Not A Day Without a Note'. I recorded four studio albums and two EPs, with always new music in the flow. I played in several countries like Italy, Germany, UK, Netherlands, and Turkey. I teamed up with many artists during the years, like Yossi Sassi, Aliki Chrysochou and Anna Utopia Giordano. In the last nine years, I have worked with several dancers too; the latest chapter of this experience is 'BlackShip', an innovative show for contemporary music, contemporary fusion dance and visual art.
In 2016 I moved to Malta. I wanted to deeper discover myself, islands are the perfect metaphor of our planet, and an excellent place for freediving…and it is actually working!
Currently I am developing further my space music and researching and lecturing at University in aerospace.
Nearly forgetting, I am also passionate about martial arts and photography.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
The very first memory I have is of myself at 3 years old with a yellow toy-piano. I liked to improvise (clearly!) with it and sometimes to disassemble (maybe an early sign of engineering). Besides this I realized that I wanted to become a pianist when I was 6 years old, I remember there was another kid playing an old upright piano at school, seeing the other school mates around happy and smiling. When he finished I have vivid in my mind that I played my first real piano key, thinking: Wow! I want to play it and share music with people!
So a few months later, I started my musical journey.


Nagamag:
How did the Covid19 pandemic influence your artistic activity?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am seeing it as an opportunity of growth, despite the difficult moment that everyone is facing. I increased considerably my online activity, publishing every week vlog episodes on my YouTube channel, starting to stream regularly my music performances on Twitch and releasing with a higher frequency new music on the main music distribution platforms, like Spotify. The effects of the pandemic will take quite a lot in my opinion to be completely managed and society and music industry will be quite different in the near future. 2 new EPs and 4 singles are in the workflow for the upcoming months.


Nagamag:
Who is the Space Pianist?

Leonardo the Space Pianist:
I am a Dreamer that step by step is designing his way to perform the first piano concert on Mars.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Johan Famaey:
neo-classical, piano, musical, cinematic


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Johan Famaey:
I was four years old when I played my first tunes on the accordeon, taught by my father. It would culminate into my graduation as master in music at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven, Belgium in 2002. 18 years and countless performance in Europe and China and compositions later, a new episode has started in 2020. After very successful performances of my musical Hors in February 2020, based on the legend of Bayard, I've decided to pursue my love for performing on the piano and composing even more passionately.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Johan Famaey:
Music was all around me, since my parents were musicians. My father was my first inspirator. Not only did he teach me how to play, he also let me appreciate all genres of music by playing records. I remember very vividly how I was not only enchanted by music of Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Schubert but also liked to play arrangements of old songs like 'Crying in the Chapel'. Wen I was a teenager, I heard the music of Ennio Morricone for the first time with the broadcast of 'Secret of the Sahara' on television. His music has had a very profound effect on my adoration for a melody that touches the soul. Music should be felt.


Nagamag:
Do you have any new music coming out?

Johan Famaey:
This year 2020, I will release more piano and orchestral music and even some tracks with vocals on it. For music videos, I work together with the amazing film producer María Cecilia Alguacil from Argentina. Moon Touch has been masterfully produced by her and also Time Passenger is an extraordinary beautiful video which will be shown for the first time September 25th on YouTube. It will be available on Spotify and other streaming platforms around half to end October.


Nagamag:
Do you have any concerts coming up?

Johan Famaey:
Due to covid, it is very difficult for us musicians to perform. Nevertheless, November 28 en 29 I will present a whole new show with my music with piano, backing tracks, dance, vocals and all whistles and bells in terms of light and sound. This will take place in my hometown in Hamme, Belgium.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lynn Tredeau:
Neo-classical, Contemporary Solo Piano, New Age Piano


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Lynn Tredeau:
I began piano lessons at 5 years of age and that opened a doorway to learning many other instruments including flute, clarinet, saxophone, guitar & pipe organ. After many years of teaching piano, I retired to pursue a life long dream to create original music. My debut album Echoes of Life was released in 2015 followed later that same year by a Christmas album Snowlight (A Christmas Memory), which was awarded Best Holiday Album at Enlightened Piano Radio. Over the next 4 years I released 4 additional albums and 12 single releases. My music has been featured on about 6 compilation albums and received many nominations. Two albums were awarded Best Solo Piano Album at Zone Music Reporter, Fellowship of Solitude in 2018 and All the Pieces in 2019. A track (Photos Without a Memory) from my sixth album was also chosen as Track of the Year by One World Music Radio. My single releases have allowed me to collaborate with other musicians and try my hand at other styles of music.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Lynn Tredeau:
My father loved the music of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. Every Sunday, he would cook breakfast for the family and sing along to his favorite records. My other childhood memory was practicing on my old piano in the basement and my mother would call down the stairs to "play her favorite" which was Clair De Lune. To this day I can hear her voice when I play that song.

Muidas – Aria (Video)

Aria (Italian for Air) is Muìdas’ first single. The song is characterized by a melancholic yet soothing mood, evoking the sensation of taking off and being up in the air, among gray and menacing clouds. A well performed cinenamtic theme which goes a bit further than the usual solo piano design of neoclassical and explores more deeply the harmonic boundaries, spiced with tickling sound layers.

Lumiere Interview on Nagamag

Lumiere Interview on Nagamag

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lumiere:
I believe that my music style moves constantly inside a square the 4 tips of which are a) Modern classical b) Minimalism c) Indie d) Electronic


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Lumiere:
Apart from 3 years of piano lessons when I was in elementary school and some lessons of sax some years ago, I am basically a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and composer. I formed an indie rock band ("Serpentine") when I was studying Physics in the University of Patras in the early 00s and later I released a couple of dream pop albums through 2 independent Greek labels. Since 2016, I am focused on composing instrumental music, releasing my debut album as Lumiere in 2017 and now looking forward to the release of my second album, "Phases" on the 18th September 2020.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Lumiere:
I think the first album that I really loved in its entirety was "Morning Glory" by Oasis, being also one of the first albums that I bought, in my teens. Listening to that album tens of times made me want to write my own songs.


Nagamag:
How does the new album display your growth as Lumiere?

Lumiere:
In my new album, for the first time, I have used extensively percussion and generally rhythmic structures along with the melodic elements for which I have used strings and brass. Apart from that, in almost half the tracks, there are drums and electric bass, creating a music combo of orchestral and indie elements, which is something I have never tried in the past.


Nagamag:
Was there an inspiration behind the rhythmic nature of “Doppler”?

Lumiere:
The Doppler effect in Physics is the change in the frequency of a wave in relation to a moving observer. My inspiration for the music of the song came from this natural effect and as a result came the pulsating drums, marimbas, and the beating of the horns (representing the waves) and the bending notes of the strings (representing the change in frequency).


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?
