Ceci n’est pas un violon (solo)

With her solo project ‘ceci n’est pas un violon’ (or ‘this isn’t a violin’) Ananta breaks out of her comfort zone, a ‘tabula rasa’ of her musical orientation. With violins, her vocal cords and some household wares she goes on an unexpected journey with her familiar instruments towards the unknown. Don’t expect classical or ‘world’ music, because any style is enriching until it becomes a restriction; as a desire for freedom will find an outlet in this challenge…

Currently mixing the recordings for the album ‘Siete vidas te daría’ of my solo project ‘Ceci n’est pas un violon’. Recordings at Zinnema, Anderlecht, February 2020 by Dries Van Ende. Mixing by Dries Van Ende. Videos in the making…
