The new album by An Vedi «Voiceolin»

 

The words “voice“ and “violin“ are combined in the title of this album. «Voiceolin» contains 10 works for a duo of voice and violin and for solo violin. Various styles and genres, such as contemporary classical music, soft rock, country, new age, singer-songwriter, are combined on this album. «Voiceolin» is like a small theatrical performance, the plot of which is based on war stories, as well as philosophical thoughts about the meaning of human existence.There is also a “love story“ of two people who go through different twists and turns.

The idea's concept of ​ «Voiceolin» came up two years ago under the impression of the cycle «Along the Field» by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). In this sense, «Voiceolin» is a tribute to the memory of an outstanding English composer, but also a “look into the future“ of music based on current contemporary trends.

An Vedi performs both vocals and violin on this album.

on September 6th, 2021




















The album "Amaxama Instrumental"
is a contemporary music album that contains 11 instrumental songs. It is an excellent collaboration of Antonio Vergara with An Vedi. Where global artists from different countries also played, such as: India with the son of the belabaharr Naviin Gandharv, Argentina with the invaluable participation of Jorge Durietz, member of the emblematic duo Pedro y Pablo, Cuba with the Afro jazz folk touch of the Arango brothers considered the new worldwide jazz trend from the hand of its musical leader the legendary Feliciano Arango, king of timba. And from Mexico with his classical piano the maestro Álex Naranjo graduated from the National School of Art in Cuba in two specialties: classical music and Jazz. Russia joined in with the violinist An Vedi who made a sublime contribution to this instrumental version where she interprets these works with the excellence and quality they deserve, making the record work a totally unpublished and above all genuine creation. So An Vedi's main violin line added interesting new nuances to the album, where in some tracks the violin sounds in a jazz style and sometimes the sound resembles avant-garde music. As an instrumentalist, An Vedi brings some interesting playing techniques. In the songs "Absence Knives" and "In The Attic", she makes an unusual violin melody (the G string is lowered), and the violin sounds like a viola or cello, or like a male voice. This reinterpretation of the melody of each song makes "Amaxama Instrumental" a unique work that attracts listeners as much as "Amaxama".

A Long Enigma - the song in memory of Barry Collett

A Log Enigma_cover.jpg

“A Long Enigma“ is an instrumental-vocal composition composed and performed in memory of the great pianist and musicologist, who was a true Elgarian, Barry Collett. This composition consists of some fragment of both original music and changed fragments of Edward Elgar's music from works for violin and piano: Sonata, Romance, Salut d'Amour and Sospiri. These fragments repitched to one main song key. But only violin plays it, because of “piano“ left this world. The lyrics mention a very popular work by Elgar – “Enigma Variations“, like Enigma is all the life with its misterious ways of knowledging the art of music. There are also words of a big thanks of the joy to perform wonderful music by Elgar, and the chorus is like an anthem that is sung from the heart of everyone who has ever been familiar with Barry Collett.

This song is officially released on October 21st, 2020 on all digital platforms as well as it will be available on a CD. All benefits from selling or streaming of this work will be transferred to the Elgar Society to continue promoting of Elgar's music worldwide, the work that Barry Collett has devoted to for many years.

The new album "The Untuned Piano" by An Vedi

TUP.jpg

Dear music lovers! We are happy to announce the upcoming release of the new album by An Vedi called ”The Untuned Piano”. 
This is the first album after An Vedi was awarded The Elgar Medal, became a Member of the International Singer-Songwriters Association, and received the Akademia Music Awards (February 2020). The new album was created in the favorite style of An Vedi - a combination of different musical genres from classical to pop music. The main theme of lyric texts is the search for true love, but not only about that. One of the album’s songs, “We've Never Cried For Us,” is dedicated to musicians and composers, who recently passed away. You can hear “sobs“, “groans“, the “false” intonation in this song - all these details express sorrow and sadness. This is a kind of La Crimosa of 21's century.
“Love and life as a sacrament” is the main philosophical idea of the lyrics, which organically combines with the way of musical expression. This is, indeed, a “untuned” piano, each note of which has more harmonics than a purely tuned musical instrument. (An Vedi had previously composed music for various instruments that were tuned in a non-classical way.) This piano has more expressive and deep sound, which, combined with An Vedi's opera-pop-rock vocals, gives a vivid impression. Almost all the songs on the album ”The Untuned Piano” were recorded live without special sound editing. In this way, An Vedi approaches the classical composition. But lyrics and a special type of vocal performance make this album 100% modern and relevant.
The album will be available from March 30 on all music platforms, as well as as the CD.

The new An Vedi's album "SolOpera" - March 20, 2018

Official press release of An Vedi's 

 new album «SolOpera»

  The new album of composer and multi-instrumentalist An Vedi with the unusual title «SolOpera» (LP) will be released on March 20. This album features vocal-instrumental compositions and songs which were written in 

2017-2018.    
   The central place in the album is the 7,5 minute composition in the form of a mini-opera, a monologue, written according to all the laws of 

the «big» opera dramaturgy.

Despite the apparent similarity with the academic 

style, in this composition, as in the whole album,

a wide genre spectrum is applied: elements of 

jazz, folk music, hymns, pop-rock, avant-garde.  

   In this album you may find ten songs

 and compositions that are arranged into the clear associative chain of «events».

«Abandoned Home» is the first composition on the album – an adult man's memories of his carefree childhood.

The next song is «Lullaby (Instead of Love)» - a permanent attempt to return to the past, because the present is at odds with dreams. «You'll Never Look Like Me» is the continuation of the real world perception,

 an attempt to understand who am «I», who are «you», and who are the «others». The song «Outside

 the World» is a hymn to the unconscious, a walk in the clouds, everything that has nothing to do with reality. «Train to Jerusalem» - this song is about the spiritual impulse, which will happen to all of us in a good time. The song «My Time» is an appeal to the friend of the main character but they are separated due to circumstances. The big violin solo opens the composition «Welcome to Destroyed World», it expresses the disunion of the world and people, without words; the lyrics in the vocal part of the composition again return us to the searching for the meaning of being, searching for the perfect «object» or leader that can help people to become spiritually sighted. «The Choice» is the song about that good and evil coexist in this world,

 but everyone must make their choice. «SolOpera», as already mentioned, is a monologue vocal instrumental composition. It consists of several parts («micro-acts»), which are interconnected by means of dramaturgy. The protagonist travels through the «sea of life» on the dream ship, seeks an earthly ideal of spiritual beauty, and, in the end, he chooses «suffering instead of love». The closing song of the album – «Believing in the Truth» – combines a lyrical plea for deliverance of having ones head in the clouds and a hymn to the truth, which does exist in our world and is not just a lie.  

   The new album by An Vedi «SolOpera» is an exquisite genre blending, therefore, a wide audience of listeners can perceive philosophical ideas about the truth, spiritual search, and the formation of personality throughout life.

   The first edition of the composition «Abandoned Home» was recorded as the promo video for this album.

   The album «SolOpera» will be available on the release day (March 20) as digital publication, but you can also purchase the official CD with the album.

Официальный пресс-релиз нового альбома An Vedi «SolOpera»

   20 марта выйдет в свет новый альбом композитора и мульти-инструменталистки An Vedi с необычным названием «SolOpera» (LP). 

   В этом альбоме будут представлены вокально-инструментальные композиции и песни, написанные в 2017-2018 годах.

   Центральное место в альбоме занимает одноимённая семи с половиной минутная композиция в форме мини-оперы–монолога, написанная по всем законам драматургии «большой» оперы. Не смотря на видимое сходство с академическим стилем, в этой композиции, как и во всём альбоме, применён широкий жанровый спектр: элементы джаза, народной музыки, гимнов, поп-рока, авангарда.

   В этом альбоме десять песен и композиций, которые выстроены в чёткую ассоциативную цепочку «событий». Открывающая альбом композиция «Abandoned Home» - это воспоминания взрослого человека о его беззаботном детстве. Следующая песня - «Lullaby (Instead of Love)» - перманентная попытка вернуться в прошлое, потому, что настоящее расходится с мечтами. «You'll Never Look Like Me» - продолжение рефлексии реального мира, попытка понять, кто есть «я», а кто - «другие». Песня «Outside the World» - это гимн бессознательного, витание в облаках, всё, что не имеет отношения к реальности. «Train to Jerusalem» - песня о духовном порыве, о том, что в жизни каждого человека наступит время духовного прозрения. Песня «My Time» представляет собой обращение к персонажу, связанному с главным близкими дружескими отношениями, однако, они разлучаются по причине жизненных обстоятельств. «Welcome to Destroyed World» открывается большим соло скрипки, которое без слов выражает разрозненность мира и людей; текст в вокальной части композиции снова обращает нас к поискам смысла бытия, поискам идеального «объекта» или лидера, который способен помочь людям духовно прозреть. «The Choice» - песня о том, что в этом мире уживаются добро и зло, но каждый должен сделать свой выбор. «SolOpera», как уже было сказано, это монологическая вокально-инструментальная композиция. Она состоит из нескольких частей («микро-актов»), которые взаимосвязаны между собой драматургически. Главный герой путешествует по «морю жизни» на обломках корабля мечты, ищет земной идеал духовной красоты, и, в конце концов, выбирает «страдания вместо любви». Завершающая альбом песня «Believing in the Truth» - это сочетание лирической мольбы о том, чтобы больше не витать в облаках, и гимна вере, вере в то, что и в реальном мире существует правда, а не только ложь, от которой бежит главный герой. 

   Новый альбом An Vedi «SolOpera» - это изысканное жанровое смешение, благодаря которому возможно в доступной форме донести широкой аудитории философские идеи о правде, духовном поиске, становлении личности на протяжении всей жизни.

   В качестве промо-видео альбома была записана первая редакция композиции «Abandoned Home». 

   Альбом «SolOpera» будет доступен в день релиза – 20 марта – в виде цифрового продукта, но также будет возможность приобрести официальный CD с альбомом.
