About me

I am a young musician and music teacher living in Portugal, specialized in classical guitar (I took my bachelor at Évora University with Dejan Ivanovich and have completed a Master in Music Teaching at ESML – Lisbon). But I am also interested in several different music styles.

I have been member of a Jazz band for some time (as I also play keyboard to some extent), which was a great experience, and have written and recorded some songs with them: www.myspace.com/projecttritono .

I’ve performed in duet with a soprano singer (we started as a project at the university), and from time to time I also have a solo performance.

I was also part of a classical guitar quartet, you’ll find some videos on my youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/joydivision777

By this time, you’ll have already noticed that I really like instrumental music…

Apart from being a performing musician (you can find some recordings of me playing classical guitar here: www.myspace.com/eliasjahn ), I’ve always found it a fascinating idea to compose my own music, or even produce it, together with other musicians.

For some time now, I’ve started to become interested in Electronic music, as well as Lounge, Ambiente, Down-tempo – let’s say, Chill-out in general, and have been listening and learning and started to write some music of my own…

While most of it is instrumental, some include interesting vocal parts…

This project is the result of that.
