Vytis – Gliding, a really journey to slow ambient dubtechno clouds worlds
Archive for February, 2008
Dub composer (among other things) since1995,
I’ve taken part in the creation and in the evolution of many amateur and professional bands (Kali yuga mandala, Assin, Bilor, Jukebox,…) as a keyboard player (mainly) , also as a singer, bass or percussion player.
I also played (with live performances) in an African percussion band, a song band, in a Batucada, a sound-system, and in a music group with children and doubled keyboard playing for live Reggae bands (Mina indah, Rasta Bigoud,…).
Thanks to my great experience in all kinds of live performances, I’d like, now, to build my own live project with my dub songs.
These tracks are the result of an extra-musical work in progress finding its roots in subjects I am interested in (such as voodoo, morphos, amazonia, penal colony) mixed with memories of some places I used to live in (Guiana, Tahiti, Britanny) and with notorious musical influences
(Rythm & Sound, Aphex Twin, Mad prof,…and many others.)
The people who took part in this project :
-Bess: Assin band’s singer. From Benin. He has studied at the Music Academy in Senegal. Being a professional musician for 20 years (dance, percussion, singer, reggae, afro), He sings in Rojo, “projector” and “zebra”.
