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!

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 classical cover of ‘Someone Like You’ is due for release 14 February 2016

A CLASSIC TO CLASSICAL

GéNIA MUSIC is delighted to announce the release of a piano version of ‘Someone Like You’ by Russian concert pianist and composer GéNIA.

The voice of Adele shook the world. The fingers of GéNIA and her classical arrangement of ‘Someone Like You’ takes this haunting and emotive melody to a global classical audience. Scheduled for worldwide release for Valentine's Day,  14 February 2016, this classical piano work preserves and conveys the sonority and emotion of the original.

'Someone Like You’ is one of the most beautiful love songs that has ever existed and I could not help myself, but to play with its beauty. I very much enjoyed working on this song, trying to preserve its essence and am very grateful to Adele’s and Dan Wilson’s publishers for their official support’.

Recorded on a Steinway & Sons Model D grand piano at Kings Place London and mastered at Metropolis Studios London, this recording demonstrates that beautiful music remains timeless.

The recording is available for pre-order from iTunes.

The recording is also available on GéNIA's SoundCloud.
