“Small Beast Lives! "...Thomas Simon was one of the earlier acts, playing solo on electric guitar with his usual labyrinth of effects pedals spanning the stage. This guy has more pedals than most orchestras have people, the result being that he often sounds like an orchestra, endless loops, waves and washes of sound reverberating through the mix. Kinetic and sometimes frenetic as he lunged and stabbed at his effects, firing off shuddering blasts of noise, eerily reverberating Syd Barrett-esque chords or gleefully macabre lead runs... In just under an hour onstage he managed to evoke Bauhaus, Pink Floyd, the Church, My Bloody Valentine and Philip Glass, sometimes within seconds of each other. It’s rare that a solo performer can be this interesting to watch." by delarue - New York Music Daily
I've always been very playful, like to explore the world in all its spheres, colours and situations. I like to meet people, their lives and places. How do situations, stories and lifestyles sound?
I found my way of expressing through beats, spheric sounds and a lot of vocals - being playful, detecting environment, creating an own world with bits, samples, moves, circles...
Let's dance, bath in warm sounds, be absurd and enjoy!
Jump on the wave of helahoop's sound!
iNANA stands for the musical collaboration between two women,
the singer and singer songwriter Nina Braith and the music producer and scoring artist Iva Zabkar.
The two women aim to express their sound and taking the musical project iNANA further trying to avoid categories, combining trap beats and spheric sounds together with acoustic instruments like the cello, the flute or recorded noises like cutting scissors.
"Their sound is dope! Really impressive music!“ Michael Hatsis aka Banginclude
