A chair in the museum
A melody driven techno album and tribute to meditation on the dance floor. Walking in a museum seems like binging on movies, sliding from one story to another, searching to untangle threads of narratives, and feeding your eyes and mind with whole worlds in a single instant view. With each track, A chair in the museum invites the listener to take the dancefloor and move himself to techno as if contemplating in front of a painting. Sounds become visual, stillness becomes motion, unfolding four stories guided by kicks and beats, diffused themes and twisted fibres of melodies.
Seeking creative freedom, Alimori is the pseudonym used by Mischa Blanos to shape new electronic territories for his compositions, be it progressive clubbing or ambient music. Born from the need to separate his acoustic-electronic music framed in the Neoclassical genre from other exploring genres, Alimori serves the artist in his endeavour to expand his travel on the pure electronic realm. He abandons the acoustic piano but transfers its soul by manipulating the machines as if they were acoustic instruments and infusing elusive yet deeply rooted classical structures. Back and forth through synths, drum machines, modulars and digital inputs, Alimori is set to voice out his appetite for jazz-driven techno club pieces and his attraction in creating sonic spheres of ambient music.
In choosing his alias, he was inspired by an old Romanian tradition, where Alimori is the ritual celebration of the living fire. All across the villages, wheels of fire were burned and pushed downhill as to announce people to join and praise the arrival of the spring. Hollers and dancers were crushing the soil with their wild dances to liberate the heat and the new season to come.
The track 24 Palms invokes the perfect proportions of the Vitruvian Man, Leonardo da Vinci’s translation of the universal man. As it happens with the whole album, it incites one’s imagination to overprint visual art stories. Walking in a museum seems like binging on movies, sliding from one story to another, searching to untangle threads of narratives, and feeding your eyes and mind with whole worlds in a single instant view. “A chair in the museum” is a melody driven techno album and tribute to meditation on the dance floor.
