Blooy Interview on Nagamag

Categories: Electronica Features, Electronica Interviews, Features, Interviews, The Latest|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |


Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Blooy's sound is its own unique flavor of chillout that’s fueled by dreamy electronics, lo-fi hip-hop beats, drama-filled instrumentation and melancholic soundscapes.

Few words about your musical background and career?

In the nineties I was inspired by the emerging trend of house music and started working together with producer and composer Dorian Broekhuyse, with whom I collaborated on several dance projects.
In the beginning of this millennium our musical style evolved to chillout music. Dorian and I launched our nu-classical project “Bardo State” in 2008, especially known from the internationally acclaimed song “Sospiro” (album “Mariposa”). Several Bardo State songs were licensed to well-known samplers such as Buddha-Bar and Supperclub. The track "Kosovo" was the soundtrack of the Hollywood film Jekyll and Hyde.

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

I'm the son of Jan Wijn, a famous Dutch concert pianist. Raised on musical influences such as Chopin, Ravel and Saint-Saëns, I became interested in experimental jazz throughout my teenage years and I started playing drums. In my late teens, I also started singing and playing keyboard in the new wave band The Primrose Path. The often dark and gloomy sound of new wave music has continued to inspire me throughout my musical career.

What exactly inspired you to start with Blooy?

I started working on my solo project “Blooy” during the Corona period. Inspired by the imperfection of lo-fi music, I combined chillout with jazz and classical influences, sometimes accompanied by spoken word. As the strongest form of art, I use Blooy’s music to express myself and always try to embellish my compositions with layers of heartfelt emotions.

What are your musical plans for the future?

During 2021 I will be releasing my first two Blooy EP's on the label Sine Music and I'm planning to release my first album by the beginning of 2022.

Kebu Interview on Nagamag

Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

I haven't found a single genre that would describe my music style, so I normally say "melodic instrumental synthesizer music, similar to that made in the 70's and 80's".

Few words about your musical background and career?

Music was always only passionate hobby for me. I played some piano when I was a kid, but wasn't motivated to practice enough. It was first when I picked up the synthesizer in high school that I found my instrument. Since that, I played as a keyboardist in numerous hobby bands, and had small a bedroom studio as well. I worked as a project manager at a research center in Finland and have a PhD in energy engineering and environmental protection. So I always ended up being the project manager in the bands I played with as well. I started doing Youtube videos of me performing with various synths as synthesizer demonstration videos, but I used my own compositions. I quickly got a following and stopped playing in bands, as it was much more fun to do my own music and videos alone. Soon I had my first album out, and after my second album I quit my daytime job and started doing my music as a full-time job. Since then, I've given over a hundred concerts around Europe and right now I'm finalizing my third studio album "Urban Dreams", which will be out this autumn.

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

I was always amazed by the synthesizer music I grew up with in the eighties. The sounds were so otherworldly and bigger than life, but the music itself was also interesting. And at that time, it was something new, and optimistic - the future seemed full of amazing opportunities.

On your concerts, you perform with a very large synthesizer setup. How do you manage it? Do you rent part of your gear and how do you manage to perform at festivals?

My synthesizer setup is a very integral part of my performance. We have a big van full of equipment that we set up for each concerts, and it takes us 4 hours to set everything up. People always think I look so happy and enthusiastic on stage, but that comes partly from the joy when all the equipment is working as it should! But it does impose some restrictions. For instance, we have to travel by road and sea, and performing at festivals is really difficult, since I need so much time to set everything up. I have considered a smaller, flight-friendly keyboard rig, but so far I haven't gotten around to make one, because it would take a lot of time for me to prepare a new rig. My current set has slowly evolved during a time span of ten years, and there's a lot of mixing automation going on, since I don't use backing tracks - the music you hear on stage is generated by the synths. Also, I wouldn't feel comfortable relying on rented synths. It would take too long time to transfer all my setting to the synths and ensure that everything is working as it should, so I prefer using my own synths. But there are many countries where I haven't been able to perform do these restrictions, so I will probably have to make a flight-friendly rig eventually.

What can we expect from your upcoming album, "Urban Dreams"?

My upcoming album is about dreams - both day dreams and night-time dreams. So the songs tend to be on the slower side and I've many of them have a dreamy quality about them. For this album I generated about a hundred ideas - from single riffs to almost complete songs - and chose the ones that suited the theme of the album. But I might have generated a bit too many ideas for the album, because I really struggled with turning them into full songs. And while I was working on them I came up with sections that turned into new songs. And all of a sudden I realized I had 75 minutes of music, divided into 20 tracks. I thought about splitting it up into two albums, but I felt that these songs were related and belonged on the same album.

Mark Vickness – Grey Skye (Spotify)

Categories: Audio, Pop, The Latest|Tags: , , , |

“-Mark Vickness- with his song -Grek Skye- , the #2 installment on his new album -Interconnected, offer us a beautiful acoustic guitar experience with sound clarity which tickles listener ear and bring him in a calm mood. ”

A totally unique artistic vision, Mark Vickness Interconnected approach musical creation as a solemn opportunity to express the interconnectedness of humanity, and of all things, through the universal language of music.

Three years after releasing his debut solo CD, Places, composer/guitarist, Mark Vickness releases Interconnected featuring four new solo modern fingerstyle compositions and four original pieces with his new ensemble, also called Interconnected. In addition to Mark on acoustic guitars, the ensemble brings together two time Grammy winning violinist, Mads Tolling, cellist Joseph Hebert, Dan Feiszli on upright and electric bass and tabla virtuoso, Ty Burhoe.

Together these musicians express a fiery, original vision of Instrumental Acoustic Fusion music. About the unique musical approach, Mark says "The ensemble is a perfect vehicle for connecting different styles, eras and cultures."

The material on Interconnected was born of deep reflection on the inner workings of life; childhood traumas, modern struggle, simple joys, profound sadness, lived wisdom and the joy of awareness. Interconnected is #outnow

Quote From the Artist:

"The music on this recording is intended to convey interconnectedness, the reality that we live in an interconnected, interdependent world, that we are all one human race. Instrumental music is an ideal means of expressing this because it is a universal language. This ensemble is comprised of musicians who are capable of a wide range of styles from different cultures and different eras. I worked hard to write this music with interconnectedness in mind, within each piece individually and in the relationships between the pieces themselves. Some of the pieces on Interconnected come from a deeply personal place. For Every Child was written for every person who has either experienced or known someone who has gone through the trauma of losing their innocence to childhood sexual abuse as I did before age ten. One Day Over A Thousand is dedicated to all those who lost their lives to Covid-19, and to my dear friend Holli Ross, who died while this piece was being written."

Mark Vickness began his musical training on piano at age six. The road from there to the composer/modern fingerstyle guitarist he is today included a bachelor's and master's degree in composition, studies in classical piano, guitar, sitar and tabla, years as a performing jazz guitarist, composer and arranger, several film scores and three decades of recording and performing as the instrumental half of the acoustic fusion duo, Glass House which has released three CD's, two EPs and a host of widely viewed YouTube videos. Mark's performing experience spans a huge range of genres from free improv to West African drum and dance ensembles, from Motown and funk bands to big band jazz and orchestral conducting. Schooled in composition by Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Mel Powell, Mark has recorded and performed with world renowned musicians including two time Grammy winners, The Turtle Island String Quartet, legendary bassist, Michael Manring, and guitarists Alex DiGrassi and Don Ross.

Lumiere – Doppler (Video)

Categories: Neoclassical, The Latest, Video|Tags: , , , |

Wonderful track Doppler which combines a rhythmic drumming and patterned pianom a Hauschka-esque is part of his forthcoming album “Phases” on 18 Sep. Sound design with clarity and beautiful emotional concept to daydream.

Phases is the second solo album of Lumiere, aka Greek musician Thanos Christodoulou. It is an invitation to an atmospheric trip of the heart and the mind towards dream-made images and memories of the future. Using the piano as the core instrument and combining post-classical elements with electronic structures, minimalism, and modern jazz, Lumiere’s aim was to create moving cinematic music that grips the listener and becomes the exciting soundtrack of modern daydreamers.

It’s fitting then that the name “Lumiere” is a reference to the french city of Lyon, the hometown of the Louis Lumiere and his brother, who are widely credited with inventing the art of cinematography and the first motion picture camera. Thanos spent a couple of years studying Physics in Lyon, where he also began composing his first solo pieces.

Phases is set for a September 18th release, with the propulsive, Hauschka-esque first single “Doppler” leading thew way with a video directed by Theo Tagholm, a London-based artist who created the video “playing” with real images of the world and “breaking” the observer’s experience into slices of space and time, redefining every moment (and the sense of time) as a repetitive wave.
