- In the Minus & Ion duo project
- the former is in charge of the sound effect and the percussion. The latter plays a bass guitar plus the added distortion. he mixture is decisive and powerful. Ion’s guitar gimmicks give the music its driving edge and groove while Minus’s percussive layering builds a rhythmical framework in which you can’t wait to test your dancing routines. The result doesn’t feel like Minus’s usual music and it doesn’t sound like Ion’s. Their combined sounds come from another dimension – an improvised and deeply original hybrid intended to make your body move.
Juggling easily with bass, glitch and synth funk reworked live, Minus has been present on the Romanian scene for the last 5 years with music ranging from Game Boy tunes to dub, hip hop, skweee or even to psychedelic improvisations along Ion. After releasing 3 EPs at the Romanian netlabel Arhiva 7 and notable performances at Red Bull Music Academy and Sonar 2010, his biggest joy is his spectacular evolution rathder than his accomplishments.
For Minus, the live performance is an important part of the creative process. He sometimes picks unfinished tracks and mixes them on the spot, inspired by the way his public or himself reacts. Thus, a set will evolve organically from one show to the other with something new being add every time. Having spent his childhood by the sea side inspires and empowers all his work.
