Bálint Szabó

Bálint Szabó aka Gosheven chooses the strategy of an alternative tuning, adverting to the Pythagorean scale, Italian Renaissance masters and the minimalist tradition of La Monte Young. His intimate, diary-like songs run their serene course toward a looming apocalypse, shrouded in a mist of bittersweet melancholia. Gosheven undermines and bends the status of the European musical tradition, sidesteps the staleness of contemporary tuning and draws inspiration from other, more or less forgotten systems. A personal story unfolds on the background of history, narrated by an epicene voice addressing every single attentive listener.
