GéNIA is excited to announce the release of  the new single: 

Aphrodite (Remix)

by Nigel Heath

Release Date 30 November 2018

 

Aphrodite Remix was created as a result of the collaboration between the renowned sound engineer, the double BAFTA award winning and six time Emmy nominated Nigel Heath and the Russian-born classical composer & pianist GéNIA.

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.

Nigel Heath has enjoyed a long career in music and film and television sound and has passionately pushed the boundaries of sound with passion with his ground-breaking work.

Since founding Hackenbacker Studios in the early 90’s he has contributed to the sound tracks of an extensive list of film and television projects such as ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘Jamestown’ ‘The Death Of Stalin’, ‘Cold Feet’, ‘Four Lions’, In Bruges’, ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’, ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ and the critically acclaimed ‘Killing Eve’ often fusing together the worlds of sound design and music on the mixing board.

Heath has worked with such luminaries as Sir Paul McCartney, Chris Morris, Mike Figgis, Edgar Wright – the list is long!

GéNIA & Nigel Heath

GéNIA loves to blur the boundaries between classical and popular music, and has released numerous ground-breaking albums of contemporary music as well as her own crossover compositions. Her music has been broadcast on Classic FM, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC London Radio 94.9 and BBC Proms.

GéNIA is also the founder of the Piano-Yoga® movement and author of ‘Piano-Yoga’® book, detailing the unique holistic method of playing piano which was featured in major UK and international music press.

In 2015 GéNIA was nominated as a Featured Classical Artist of Caffè Nero and in the same year launched a series of classical concerts at London’s Heathrow Airport in association with Caffè Nero, which were featured in The Times. Since then GéNIA’s music has been playing regularly in all branches of Caffè Nero worldwide, being heard by approximately 20,000 people a day.

Nigel heard GéNIA’s Aphrodite, and was moved to transform this original classical piece into ambient chill track after quickly realising that it could have a life in that genre.

The original piano solo ‘Aphrodite’ track has appeared in the smash hit BBC America series ‘Killing Eve’.

The track is already available for pre-order on iTunes and on the 30 November 2018 will be released worldwide.
