SOME FEEDBACKS

J3ZZ – Massolit Series offers a space where the audience can experience the instant creativity of sound artists. Artists meet with no preparation and improvise, interact on the spot for ~30 minutes. Then the audience is invited to ask any questions or share with the artists. Conversations’ topics are open as improvisation is free.

Massolit Books & Café is a fusion of a café and bookstore on Nagy Diófa Street, in the heart of the Jewish Quarter. The name of the culture café is not borrowed from a type of rock: it is a pun from the English translation of The Master and Margarita (“literature for the masses”). The foreign-language bookstore sells new and used books in subjects that are difficult to find in Eastern Europe, plus literature, albums, and reference books. 1072 Budapest, Nagy Diófa utca 30.

J3ZZ – Massolit Series #04 Feat. Kertész Endre – Budapest [2015.07.14]

Cello player. Cellist. Cello is the diminutive suffix of the word violoncello. Violone means double bass, what belongs to the family of the Viola de gambas; the cello though, is descendant of the Violin family.
Endre is a musician. A classical one.
His partner in crime is an Austrian instrument from 1828. They can be seen at concert halls, theatres, clubs and on the streets or on the internet as well. They’re silent most of the time, but sometimes they make sounds – both of them in their own way.
“Sometimes it works. Other times it doesn’t.”

TRAFÓ ELECTRIFY SERIES Vol. 7. // BEN FROST (IS), VESSEL (UK) // Modeo feat. J3ZZ

Presented by Trafó, ELECTRIFY is a contemporary electronic music series with a focus on adventurous sound and stimulus for memorable sonic experience. Featuring established and emerging artists the diverse line-up aims to push boundaries for challenging exploration of new musical dimensions.

MODEO

Interview: http://recorder.blog.hu/2014/09/15/magyarradar_modeo

Dreaming of apocalyptic sci-fi dystopia, Modeo’s hypnotic vision is an abstract space journey across distorted dimensions of the asymmetric techno universe. Incorporating murky audio collages and tribal polyrhythms, his textured, cinematic sound is in pursuit of balance and contrast at the same time. His experimental musical voyage led him to collaborate with artists of various related creative fields as well as the art community Technologie und das Unheimliche. His special live show will be a one-off collaborative effort with Jérôme Li-Thiao-Té (J3ZZ) on violin and Erika Tankó‘s (Maladype Színház) performance. Visuals by Tamás Herczeg (Bios).

Modeo feat. J3ZZ Live – full @ Electrify Series vol. 7 – Trafó, Budapest [2015.04.18]

J3ZZ Live @ Massolit / N7N8 Festival, Budapest [2015.04.11]

Contemporary sounds & Free improvisation (live performance) inspired by the Hungarian Folk Music“I am trying to understand/combine several ways of expressions. I have been experimenting diverse ways of improvising as a musician with artists from media and dance, etc. As an audio artist, this project allows me to transcribe via the technology, a symbol of organic/human sounds – the audio link between every human being.

We focus on an interpretation of the Hungarian culture & society. Travels, field recordings, interviews, encounters with Hungarian people etc. have been the starting point of this creation, using various contemporary (analog & digital) techniques.”
