Blind Dog studio Presents is coming to Berlin featuring 4 artists:
Mally Harpaz, Hazel Iris, Marc Marcovic, and Honey Tape.
London based multi instrumentalist Mally Harpaz (Anna Calvi, Hazel Iris, James Marples) performs her original compositions from her debut solo album Zoom In Zoom Out.
These pieces were predominantly composed as part of a collaboration with awards winning video artist Clara Aparicio Yoldi.
“There are some compositions that were created to inspire, and Mally Harpaz’s’Zoom In Zoom Out’ is fuelled by them.
Zoom In Zoom Out is a score; tracks like ‘Voices’ and ‘Not Without Pain’ say everything that has to be said: to anyone, wherever they are when listening. For me, a dark room through studio headphones with an aching soul” – Get in Her Ears
“Mally Harpaz is a multi-instrumentalist and a daring experimenter and “Zoom in zoom out” is the shining and exciting manifesto of her talent. “Zoom in Zoom out” is a jumble of sounds expressed with great poetry and effect, a jumble of sounds that, with great intrinsic tension, unleash in us irrepressible emotions. At times, listening to this album, one has the impression that the music wants to question us” and dig inside us”- System Failure
Avant-Pop & Indie-Folk artist Hazel Iris composes short pieces using patterns found in the rich storytelling traditions of Lieder and Folk. She studied Opera Performance in Germany and began to write her own music while living in London. Now based in Berlin, her playful attitude to fusion in a genre-twisting song craft weaves together social and emotional commentary à la Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Björk and Feist.
“Her material and performance is outstanding.” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
“Hazel’s work in bringing popular music closer to theatre and classical music is
refreshing and exciting.” – Shure UK
“Ushered in with a twist of heart-warming eccentricity, this classically trained and extraordinarily talented spirit explores ethereal folk strolls, upbeat pomp and splendour and haunting but touching ballads, while effortlessly blurring the lines of indie, electronic, folk, and classical music with the wave of her wand.” – The Sound Shark
Hazel has released an EP, Misfortuntate Tales (or a Gallery of Art Songs) and a full-length concept Album, Nine Sisters.Both albums are out now on iTunes, Spotify and all other major streaming sources.
Marc Marcovic ist ein Troubadour der Anamnese, ein zeit- und heimatloser Ashok, der seine phonetischen Sprachwelten mit hauntologischer Melancholie aus dem kollektiven Unbewussten entwickelt, indem Bruckstücke von Erfahrungen und fragmentarisches Denken zu einem mythisch neuen Ganzen zusammengesetzt werden. Als Spiegelbild seiner eigenen Simulation behauptet die Kunstfigur Marc Marcovic ihre Existenz in einem halluzinatorischen Niemandsland zwischen Spekulation und Gewissheit.
It all started with two cool moms chatting in their local barber shop.
Later that year, their two sons, Amir Darzi, with a distinctive, velvet-like singing voice that sends you back in time and Miki Katz, a young old-fashioned guitarist got together. They created a single barrel full of melodic rock hooks with a pinch of pop psychedelia. Followed by the captivating Motown bass lines of Lital Regev and the groovy modern drums of Dean Martin. The band has recently finished recording their debut EP at Kerwax studio in France.
