With great joy, Thy Veils launches the new official website.
It is designed by Florij Chereji and contains Daniel's photography as random background.
Florin also did a wonderful job designing Thy Veils' MySpace page not many days ago.
Thank you Florin and everyone who helped testing it.

Feedback appreciated ;)

Thy Veils & Music Alliance Pact

Music Alliance Pact is a project started 2 years ago by the Scottish blogger Jason "The Pop Cop".  It unites music blogs from six continents and around 35 countries. Each blog selects one band from their country, a song to represent it and they describe it in a few words.
On the 15th of every month, all the blogs post this identical list of all the bands (with their song and info) maximizing their exposure. The result is an international compilation, with different genres, languages and approaches.
From South Africa to England, Colombia to China, Iceland to New Zeeland;  trip-hop to pop, metal to ambient, experimental to world music, you can find it all here.
As Jason said in an interview for The Guardian: "The logic behind MAP is that because each individual blog's regular readers would usually download and listen to the author's recommended songs, they would be more likely to download the MAP songs too, even though their source was another blog entirely".

Babylon Noise is a collective Romanian music blog, started in May 2007 by some friends who wanted to share their favourite music with more people than each other.
It’s not about who released what and who sings when and where, it’s more about those sensations and feelings music creates; about the way a live performance can make you feel. It’s a very subjective music blog, consisting of our opinions about certain songs, bands, videos or shows.
It’s not about news. It’s about moods.

Thy Veils' "The Knifechild" is featured in November's edition of the Music Alliance Pact compilation.

Thank you Maria & the Babylon Noise crew.

Daniel Dorobantu @ HeadPhone festival Pecs 2010


4 Days of Music and also Visuals all on Headphones!!


A Headphone Festival is an Gathering of Music Enthusiasts, Musicians, Designers and Listeners who wants to enjoy the Music over Headphones. The Roots of this Idea comes from a group of people from Paris, France. Due the heavy loudness restrictions in the french Capital they wanna to be able to listen to loud music.. and they invented the so called "Placard" Festival. This is more than 10 years ago. This Idea spread over the world. Since 2003 the label privatelektro decided to make an own Headphone Festival in Leipzig based on the idea of the placard Festival. The first Festivals are so called virtual Festivals for the public and a strong theme was the streaming of the music played on the Fest over Internet. The Last Festival, we did intended some modifications. We used small Radio Transmitters and streamed the whole live Event inside a defined Room. The physical location was more important and the social component of the meeting with musicians and listeners. While the whole time of the concert the audience was able to listen over 3 different ways: over Radios, or Mobil Phones with integrated Radio, the provided Sound-Islands who you will be able to plug into a Headphone-Amplifier (who get the signal direct from the main mixer) and of course trough mini-radios with mini earplugs, we provided at the Festival. Every Concert was recorded and some of the concerts are released through the privatelektro as high quality mp3 with a Creative Commons Licence.

Daniel Dorobantu - Knock on the sky and listen to the sound - album review

Daniel Dorobantu is a musician from Romania, whose "Knock on the Sky and listen to the Sound" is a peaceful, dreamy journey with strong Zen-inspired and contemplative elements.

Recorded in 2007 and 2008, the music (split into seven tracks) uses generative electro and acoustic techniques, ending up in a peculiar mixture of bell and environmental sounds next to abstract/experimental edged drone tapestries.

Together they lead the way into vibrant, atmospheric and immersive spaces of wonder, although I wouldn't call the outcome a contemplative, soothing affair. The almost eerie, hypnotizing vibe in the highly improvised and edgy music is the reason for that.
So mind this ambient adventure is not something for the faint hearted.

Echoes From Transcendence Evening - noi detalii

Comunicat 07.01.2010

Pe data de 24 ianuarie, in selecta locatie The Silver Church Club, Calea Plevnei Nr.61, organizatorii Kogaionon & DonisArt prezinta, in premiera, o Seara Speciala dedicata elitei muzicale underground autohtone!

Prima alegere se numeste THY VEILS iar Daniel Dorobantu, mentorul acestui concept, a decis ca pentru aceasta seara sa aduca sub lumina reflectoarelor si pe cativa din colaboratorii cu care a realizat ultimul album. Este vorba de “Mountain And Cloud”, un CD ce a aparut oficial chiar astazi si despre care puteti afla toate detaliile, inclusiv audio, pe Este un material conceptual, ce insumeaza 4 piese, cca o ora, care dezvolta o aura Landscape Music remarcabila! Puteti asculta, in cel mai inspirat si inedit mod, o combinatie stranie de keyboards cu chitara, trompeta, instrumente de percutie indiene, didgeridoo si chiar voci feminine! Sunetul THY VEILS dezvolta o dimensiune misterioasa, greu de patruns sau perceput la o ascultare superficiala insa perfecta pentru meditatie sau evadare din cotidian! Efectul minimalist al unor instrumente sau sample-uri pune in valoare si mai mult armonia acestui concept muzical care se bazeaza in egala masura si pe latura vizuala, Daniel fiind un artist incontestabil ce stie sa manipuleze imaginea in cea mai abstracta si, poate, retorica forma!

THY VEILS este primul proiect Dark Ambient infiintat in Romania, in urma cu 15 ani, iar cel de-al 5-lea album dovedeste o maturitate rarisima pentru intreaga noastra scena Dark Ambient. Este un material ce se adreseaza in principal fanilor trupelor promovate de Cold Meat Industry, Rage in Eden, Cyclic Law, Eibon, dar si tuturor celor ce accepta impletirea de muzica si imagine ca pe o reala si introvertita provocare.

DORDEDUH este o trupa infiintata de Hupogrammos si Sol Faur in urma despartirii de NEGURA BUNGET, in vara anului trecut. Este prima oportunitate pentru fanii Black Metal autohton sa vada la lucru acest nou grup timisorean, intr-o formula extinsa cu invitati diversi. A existat si inca exista o intreaga dezbatere despre existenta sau inexistenta unei continuitati conceptuale intre muzica DORDEDUH si NEGURA BUNGET.

Pana acum nimeni nu a avut ocazia sa afle care este adevarul…

Organizatorii au hotarat impreuna cu muzicienii sa arate, in premiera, tuturor fanilor de sonoritati Metal, care este adevarata identitate DORDEDUH!

Desi trupa este la inceput de drum, casa de discuri germana Prophecy Productions le-a oferit deja un contract, albumul de debut urmand sa apara in acest an. Mai mult, in foarte scurt putin timp va aparea si un EP, format din doua piese distincte, ce vor contura barierele stilistice intre care penduleaza muzica celor doi timisoreni.

DORDEDUH doreste sa arate tuturor ca, in ciuda existentei unei scene Black Metal abundente, unde cantitatea este mai importanta decat calitatea, se poate compune si interpreta intr-un mod elegant, profesionist si sincer muzica in care crede!

Va fi un spectacol de imagine si muzica pe durata a 90 de minute, intr-o maniera mai putin intalnita pentru astfel de sonoritati, atat in Romania cat si in Europa!

Asadar, DORDEDUH va aparea pentru prima data pe scena in seara de 24 ianuarie iar posibila sinergie cu THY VEILS o veti putea descoperi doar atunci, fiind, probabil si unica!

Pentru o initiere in universul ECHOES FROM TRANSCENDENCE EVENING, cei interesati pot sa citeasca un interviu cu THY VEILS realizat in urma cu mai bine de 10 ani, ce trateaza insa teme la fel de actuale cu ale noastre vremuri… Aici se va gasi si posibila explicatie pentru Seara Speciala ce sta sa vina…

Ultimele noutati despre trupe vor veni curand, prin postarea a doua interviuri realizate in aceasta luna!

Vor mai exista in 2010 si alte Seri Speciale in afara celor anuntate? Raspunsul pe 24 ianuarie, in The Silver Church!

Accesul in sala va fi permis la ora 18.30, unde se va putea urmari cca o ora din spectaculosul DVD AGALLOCH, aparut acum cateva saptamani, o raritate dar si o piesa de colectie pentru toti fanii Dark Metal !

In jurul orei 19.30 prima trupa va urca pe scena, cea de-a doua urmand sa-si termine reprezentatia dupa ora 22.00.

Pretul unui bilet este de 40 lei si se va putea cumpara din Reteaua Diverta,, sau la intrare, in seara evenimentului.

Va asteptam!

…underground will never die!
