the shadow-sky mystery
Public impressions about Myster Shadow-Sky' music:
"Appearing on stage always masked. we do not know his face but some stolen pictures represent myster shadow-sky as a male, born white from western father and mother - but we are not sure. s/he creates and plays several musical instruments like an ultra sensitive skin listening the silence. this approach of music is so unique and sensual that we have some difficulties to understand what should be music after. At each appearance he creates a zero level music i.e. a new re-creation of music, attached to the context, people, and instruments. his performances are closer to a ritual than traditional commercial concert. s/he seems to not have the same point of view as us of what it is music."
"I feel a very strong time presence into Myster Shadow-Sky's music, some kind of consciousness or memory bringing back feelings linked to childhood : the discovery of the real world, the infinitely small and the infinitely large, the feeling of an inner time, of subterranean times."
"Myster Shadow-Sky works on formalization of musical "scenophonic" processes creating perceptive illusions and cultural interference within performance environments."
"... But, but for Myster Shadow-Sky says: “THE SOUND DOES NOT EXIST, VIBRATIONS HIT OUR EARS AND GIVE US THE IDEA WHICH BELONGS TO THE MEANINGS OF HEARING: THE SOUND. IT IS NOT PROVED THAT THE IDEA OF SOUND, AN INTERPRETATION OF OUR MIND, MATERIALLY EXISTS. WHY? BECAUSE THERE IS A TRANSLATOR BETWEEN VIBRATIONS AND OUR MEANING OF SOUND. VIBRATIONS HAVE NO MEANINGS, THEY ARE JUST MOVEMENTS IN TIME: THE RESULTS OF CHANGING STATES”...”THE SOUND DOES NOT EXIST BUT ITS SUBJECTIVE PHENOMENON IS PERCEIVED AS A SENSATION. THIS IS WHY THE MUSIC EXISTS, THE MUSICIAN COMPOSES WITH SENSATIONS NOT WITH SOUNDS.”
This is the start of zero level music, to be absolutely free in music conception. No influences from any past currents, because at this state of emptiness music does not exist. Shadow-Sky is free to create what ever it could exist as music, and starts with "It is Impossible to Give a Title to this Phenomenon Because unknown Beyond Space and Time has No Name" for a stick bowed nylon strings guitar in 1983.
INTENTIONS scanners: here is the hart of this APPROACH. Intentions create sensations. And each Human movement must not to be banned, like hesitation one must be controlled from inside naturally to give the e-motion of hesitation. In our society full of machine even in music, this attitude is like a fresh air in stuffing place. I think this is one of particularities that distinguish Shadow-Sky's music with others."
"I never saw before a musician taking so much risk to make any compromises with his music like Myster Shadow-Sky. His extreme independent position in music market transform him in perhaps the first anonymous artist. That is never happened in our modern age: did we create a new race of forgotten composers?"
"Myster Shadow-Sky shown us tonight how to assemble so many different people playing a musical instrument in different genre, to create a huge symphonic orchestra and play amazing music that put audience under the charmed. The Trans-Cultural Syn-phônê Orchestra project is a liberation for commercial music."
"I never thought that Myster Shadow-Sky's music could be more avant-garde than avant-garde music in an avant-garde music festival! Myster Shadow-Sky's music is beyond people categories, and give us just the beauty."
"Myster Shadow-Sky is important for us, because we feel that his music open our mind to understand things we never felt before."
"It is not possible to define Myster Shadow-Sky, in any music categories. He appears always with music we never expect but always masked, to escape celebrity? He creates most incredible sensations with his music that i never heard before! Like a flying clones orchestra for example that disturb our normal perception of space and time. It seems that Shadow-Sky try to make us understandable that unknown is not bad or a fear generator but a source of pleasures. I feel I have lot of things to learn after my meeting with Myster Shadow-Sky!"
"The music of Myster Shadow-Sky is the most incredible music I never heard, like a journey in the center of time."
"We need artists like Myster Shadow-Sky that creates with passion music for everybody outside normality."
