Igor Kauric is an eclectic performer and songwriter whose musical output lies behind several monikers, stage names and pseudonyms.
Hailing from Croatia, Igor set out to pursue his interest in art and multimedia, refusing to get stuck in a box and giving a voice to all the different creative directions he felt like exploring.
The young Igor has been fascinated by the art of sound since a very tender age: Things have gone a long way since he first started stomping and slamming around the place. Those primordial percussions left room for piano lesson, guitar and much more.
There is a very old proverb that goes around within music business circle, sounding something along these lines: “The best composer does not invent. The best composer borrows”.
It might sound like a mean backstab at first, but if you stop for a minute and consider it, this saying holds a lot of truth, more so than you could probably believe.
Every single living human to dwell on this here planet, at any given time in history, has been influenced by his own environment. Culture, entertainment, social conventions…all of these variables are deeply routed within our way of understanding and interpreting our reality. What we feel, what we see, what we experience goes on to influence our sensibility.
The more you are willing to get out of your “little box”, in the words of Pete Seeger, the more you will be exposed to something different and unique. Diverse cultures, different mindset, different thinking, different living.
The way music moves, changes and evolves is a mirror of this process: So many artists simply focus all their energy and effort into one single genre, often at the risk to produce pale, bad, bland and meaningless imitations of what they focus on, with no significant power or value.
On the other hand, there are artists with an eclectic approach, just like Igor Kauric.
Artists like Igor manage to create music according to their own, original perspective, blending influences as diverse as their personal experience go. In Igor’s case, he set out to express his fondness for being diverse and kaleidoscopic through a wide range of project, not only musical acts, but also production portals and online communities.
Each one of these project keep up with Igor’s hunger for diversity within his musical output, pushing his sound towards three well defined different directions. There is a common footprint, a common spark that almost feels like Igor’s own signature throughout all these different projects, yet each project truly stands out as a new, independent entity.
In early 2016. Igor stopped making music.
2017., recently after his mother's death, Igor fulfill's his long awaited wish to travel the world and leaves everything behind, armed with swiss knife and accompanied by his faithful frienddog Aum.
