This November D/B is delighted to welcome Greek ambient artist Hior Chronik to perform at Spektrum Berlin along with D/B’s own editor and collaborator Dirk Markham presenting another onslaught of his live ambient/drone project „Dirge“. Hior Chronik will be accompanied by live visuals from Henrik Jose.
Based in Berlin, Hior Chronik was born in Athens in 1974. His relationship with music started when he was working as a radio producer for Jazz fm in the early 90s’ and as a columnist for various music magazines. He began creating music about 7 years ago and today his focus is on minimal ambient based mainly on piano, characterized by cinematography, melancholy, scattered notes and long melodies that form expressive engagements. His music is featured in various films, documentaries as well as art performance.
His debut album entitled “I’m a tree”” was released from Enregistrements Variables label in 2010. Collaborations constitute his basic core of inspiration and motivation for creating music. His 2nd solo album, entitled “Unspoken Words” was released by mü-nest in November of 2011, which will include collaborations with Akira Kosemura, Natalie Tba, Roger Doering (of Dictaphone) and many more. He released an album as Pill-Oh entitled “Vanishing Mirror” on Kitchen. Label in 2012.
Dirge is the ambient/drone project by D/B editor Dirk Markham. Dirk has been making experimental recordings and teaching himself every instrument he can get his hands on since his years studying mental philosophy at Edinburgh University in the late 90s. While an ongoing collaborative exchange with the Forest Records Collective still provides a strong bond to Edinburgh, Markham has been residing in Berlin for the last 10 years where he previously worked for Gudrun Gut’s indie label monika enterprise and is now part of the research and development team with Native Instruments.
