MUSICIAN / COMPOSER / PERFORMER
Born in between different worlds, different cultural identities, and the persistent feeling of not belonging anywhere, being rootless, being homeless; this describes very much as well the musical career of Swiss raised, Czech musician of Pashtun descent, Miron Andres.
The viola da gamba being his first instrument, Working with composers has been an important part of Miron's career.
However, indulging into all the possibilities the viola da gamba has to offer, he has been more and more active as a creator of audio art, using analog synths as well, and connecting different means of expression in interdisciplinary work.
VIOLA DA GAMBA
NEW PRODUCTION JAN. 2023
...Rooted in ancestral culture, migrants, persecuted, mysterious and always in search of something beyond vision and reason. BRUXÆS ORCHESTRA is formed by migrants, children of different cultures who shared a bond with music and other art forms, name it modern music, theatre, or dance...
...At a crucial moment in art where everything is replaceable, we distinguish ourselves by the different handling of music and body, remembering that musical work is a mystery of Eleusis.
Our orchestra has irreplaceable
faces and artists of different magics and powers...

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
