TransyMusic  :::: December 2007

Ancient local songs (live and recorded) from local Romanian, Hungarian and Gipsy cultures were shared as daily inspiration for the participants. Ergo Phizmiz with wife and kids, Margita Zalite and other invited guests - Mihai Sorohan, Puiu, Barabas Ladiszlau, Ana Nicoara, Demeter Panna Katalin, Varga Iuliu, Sebastian Tatar, Asterix and a room full of people - had great fun improvising and composing. At times it sounded good.

Together we enjoyed home made wine, zacusca and jams, made from fruits and veggies coming mainly from our organic garden and the local markets. Participants shared delcious snacks and drinks from their own countries. People at Radio Targu-Mures were generous in sharing their archives. We closed the project with a small concert at Teatrul Ariel and a live performance at G Pont in Targu Mures. 

Many thanks to our partners Teatrul Ariel, Radio Targu-Mures and Radio Alternativ and to our friends Heiner Holtappels, Liliana Alexandrescu, Cristina Ticala and Raul Bucur who supported the project, as well as REEA and the European Cultural Foundation (travel costs of the invited guests).
