Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Sissy Danou ( aka Sishiva ), who was born in Athens, is one of the rare female psychedelic trance producers in Greece.
Sishiva always had a passion for music. Her first contact with music was at the age of 9, when she started guitar & flute lessons. At the age of 14, she started listening to electronic music, and mostly trance. She turned out to be one of the lucky ones, born with the ultimate ear, as we say, to recognize the notes effortlessly.
After Studies in Patras, Renovation of Buildings, in 2009 she returned to Athens to attend S.A.E. Studies of Audio Engineering and realized that this is what she always wanted to be! She began to attend parties in her hometown Athens and loved the vibe and culture of the psychedelic trance scene. Practicing on a daily basis, she has 2 projects and focuses mostly on forests sounds. She likes recording sounds of her imagination, amazing sounds of forests, and unique female vocals with friends, or even quotes from movies. (Zeitgeist, Fearing and Loathing in Las Vegas, Red Rose e.t.c.)
While making music, she started playing regularly in Athens at both underground and club events. She has created releases for record companies and has become assistant sound engineer in recording studios. She does sound check for music groups in Synch Festival. She has been playing in many locations, apart from Athens, such as Aurora Festival 2011, Psyculture 2010, Hybrid 2010, Earthdance Crete 2010, Grotesque Festival 2010, Momento Demento 2013 parties at clubs in Goa, Berlin, Barcelona and other cities all over the world.
Now Sishiva has joined a Greek dub /experimental group started in 2005, called Direct Connection. She works enthusiastically onstage console and while she prepares an album in forest deep atmosphere dark & psy trance, groovy style!
