Xacutti Productions and GéNIA MUSIC are proud to present two exciting releases. ‘Aphrodite’ by GéNIA for solo piano and ‘GéNIA x VOID Aphrodite Redux’

Xacutti Productions and GéNIA MUSIC are proud to present two exciting releases.

‘Aphrodite’ by GéNIA for solo piano and ‘GéNIA x VOID Aphrodite Redux’

‘Aphrodite’

This original piano piece was inspired by the story of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, who, according to Plato’s popular legend, was born in the foamy crests of the Aegean Sea. The captivating image of this beautiful woman rising through the waves was the original incentive behind the music.

With Aphrodite being also a goddess of pleasure and procreation, GéNIA , as composer, sought to convey all the dynamic qualities of such a character, once again holding with her ethos of writing beautiful music which encourages people to connect with their inner selves.

Performed on a 1922 Steinway D grand piano at Sleeper Sounds, a studio founded and owned by renowned songwriter and producer Guy Chambers, the instrument brings a hauntingly beautiful tone and feel to the track.

Available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and many other digital platforms.

‘GéNIA X VOID Aphrodite Redux’

UK based band VOID discovered GéNIA ‘s original piano recording of Aphrodite during a visit to their publishing company’s offices in Central London.

Struck by the tenderness, sensitivity and fragility of what they had heard, the band sought to remix the track, instilling it with their unique and highly atmospheric presence.

VOID are an anonymous ‘faceless’ band with a focus on promoting mental health awareness online, both band members having already faced their own personal struggles at a young age. VOID are not seeking conventional ‘fame’, but are simply looking to share their music as widely as possible, allowing others to find calm, solace and comfort through their pieces. Follow Void on their social media platforms (Twitter & Instagram), as they are active and very inspiring.

GéNIA was absolutely blown away but the VOID redux and is very confident that her audience will be delighted to discover this new wonderful band and listen to more their compositions.

Available on iTunes. Amazon, Spotify and many other digital platforms.

GéNIA was born in the Ukraine and was trained as a concert pianist from the age of 4. During her studies she was awarded a scholarship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and since then, has chosen to make London her home.

Known worldwide for her contemporary and classical concerts, multimedia events and pop-up shows, she is a driving force in new music, injecting an exciting modern twist into the classical music scene.

GéNIA is also the founder of Piano-Yoga®, a unique holistic method of playing and teaching which she runs from her central London studio.

‘Aphrodite’ is a track from GéNIA’s upcoming album ‘Babylon’ scheduled for release later in the year. 

 

GéNIA releases ‘Babylon’ music score

Following many requests, I am delighted to announce the release of the 'Babylon' music score. Aimed at the intermediate to advanced players, I took the time to edit the score to the finest detail. The score can be purchased from this website.

The name ‘Babylon’ was chosen as a historical reference to Babylon’s development to the most advanced level across various periods, in culture, art, science, architecture, commerce and other disciplines, during which it kept getting attacked, and was ultimately destroyed. As a result, all the wonders of the Hanging Gardens, proclaimed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the reputation of the region as the highest centre of learning and scientific understanding as well as a highly successful commercial centre, were destroyed.
I hope that by drawing attention to the past, people will be made more aware of the parallel with what we are going through in our society today.

The track is available on iTunesAmazon,  GooglePlay as well as on Spotify and many other digital channels.

Enjoy!

Looking Back at GéNIA’s performance at the Worldwide Cafe at the BBC Broadcasting House

We have been so busy here, at GéNIA MUSIC, that we forgot to publish some of the wonderful pictures from GéNIA's performance for Nordoff Robbins Charity in September 2017 at the Worldwide Cafe (Caffe Nero) BBC Broadcasting House. Presented by the lovely Radio and TV presenter Jo Good, GéNIA's performance attracted a lovely audience, that included BBC London Radio 94.9 Listeners, where GéNIA often appears, journalists, GéNIA's fans and guests of the capital.

Here is some of the audience feedback from the concert:

'Wow! What a wonderful treat. I wandered into Caffe Nero today and heard the most beautiful music - thank you GéNIA! I can't wait for Babylon to be released' Charley, London

'That was so amazing. I am so glad i heard from Jo (Jo Good) yesterday that you were playing here. It was worth missing breakfast to get here on time. It was a privilege to hear you play. Enjoy life and keep making people happy'. Sue, London

"So glad I heard about this wonderful performance on Jo's show yesterday and made an effort to get here. Many thanks' Liz

GéNIA’s performance at Sofar Sounds

GéNIA's next London performance will take place on the 29th of October as part of Sofar Sounds concerts where she will be promoting her new album 'Babylon'. Founded in 2010 and based all over the world,  Sofar is an expanding network of artists and music lovers.
For more information please visit  their website.

The details of GéNIA's new album will be announced shortly. Please join our mailing list to be amongst the first to know and be able to pre-order the Limited Edition Signed CD 'GéNIA: Babylon'.

GéNIA’s new single ‘Babylon’ is due for worldwide release on the 13 September 2017

GéNIA’s next single ‘Babylon’ is due to be released on the 13th September worldwide.
To celebrate this, GéNIA will be performing at Caffè Nero BBC Broadcasting House as part of 'Get Loud' Campaign for Nordoff Robbins Charity on that day. The show will start at midday, presented by BBC Radio London's eminent Jo Good, and kindly sponsored by Yamaha.

The name 'Babylon' was chosen as a reference  to the advanced ancient civilisation which was repeatedly challenged by being regularly attacked and almost destroyed; however, many times it managed to rebuild itself, each time to a higher level.

GéNIA is hoping that by looking back into the past, her audience can link that period to the challenging times our society is currently experiencing. The single is already available for pre-order and  is a track from her new album 'Babylon' which is due to be released later this autumn.



Recorded in the famous pop studio Sleeper Sounds, the recording home for Robbie Williams, Oli Murs and Casabian to name just a few, on their lovely Steinway piano, GéNIA worked with the most wonderful team, starting with six-times Emmy nominee and two time BAFTA winner, executive producer Nigel Heath, producer Hayden Parsey, sound engineer Billy Halliday, pre-mastering team Nigel Heath, Brad Rees and James Ryan with mastering by Cicely Balson at Air Studios, London.

'Babylon' will be available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, Google player, Spotify & Diesel, as well as on many other streaming channels.

You can already pre-view the track on iTunes and hear it live at GéNIA’s show at the BBC Caffè Nero on Wednesday on the 13th at midday. The entrance is free. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

 

GéNIA’s performance at Caffe Nero BBC on ‘Get Loud’ Nordoff Robbins National Charity Day

Performing her signature minimalist sounds interspersed with Russian romance, pianist GéNIA will perform on the 13th of September at Caffè Nero - 'Get Loud' campaign – in support of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins’ annual awareness day.

GéNIA’s music has been played on BBC, Classic FM and in all Caffè Nero coffee houses as feature Artist of the Month.

Once again she’ll feature in Caffè Nero, but this time as part of the most ambitious music project yet – Get Loud. GéNIA will be one of hundreds of artists performing at midday on September 13 in Caffè Nero coffee houses across the UK.

Nordoff Robbins uses the power of music to raise awareness of their incredible music therapy services, which change the lives of thousands of vulnerable and isolated people across the UK.

On Wednesday 13 September, Caffè Nero will host hundreds of in-store acoustic ‘Get Loud Coffee Shop Session’ performances simultaneously at midday.
