My name is Magda K. Terzidou (aka Ordem Progresso) and my studies are primarily on History of Art. Complementary studies were made also on Psychology, Philosophy and Theatre.
Electronic Music conquered my life in the early 90’s, where ambient contemplation and crazy parties were a state of being, a way to resist and revolt. The triggering point for getting involved more seriously with music was not the dance music by itself, but the body and mind expression that evoked. The great role of the “appropriate” dance Music and it’s impact was certified in 2002, when I became an executive assistant in the Conseil International de la Danse of UNESCO, where I met and interviewed many of the top dance world performers. My personal experience as a choreographer came some years later by being responsible for the Dance & Choreography teenager Team in an NGO for almost 3 years.
This deep connection continued in Klimax Plus Radio in which I was hosting the Ordem e Progresso Radio Show for 3 and half years trying to present and promote House Music through thematic unities and interviews of local artists. The main concern of the show was the underground House stage in Greece and worldwide, its roots in the warehouses of Chicago, Detroit, Manchester and Berlin, the spirit of revolving to western industrialization and social discrimination by spreading the spirit of unity and equality through dance parties. The structure of the Show was built accordingly in a thematic unity that tried to convey the impact of inner states of a human being, such as: “Broken Promises”, “Acrobats”, “Leaving Weight Behind”, “Persephone is Back”, etc. The presentation on new promising artists and well-established ones as well as conceptual festivals and alternative ways of interaction between arts was the high priority in this show.
Far away from the mainstream and fake glamour of these days, Ordem strives to support the true Deep underground qualitative spirit.
