Pribegie (Romanian for "Wandering") is a 27' night-time journey attempting to bridge the gap between different eras, places and genres.


A video for Ape adânci/Deep water track:

"[...] La prima release ufficiale è Pribegie di Shanyio, progetto del musicista romeno Alexandru Hegyesi (di cui non abbiamo molte informazioni). Tra i collaboratori figurano Loalue, Xu, Thomas Almadi. Da un primo ascolto emerge subito l’atmosfera opprimente e cupa che si cocncretizza in strutture ambient ed elettroacustiche quasi mai regolari e con suggestioni “lisergico-psichedeliche”."

Nicola Orlandino for Son of Marketing

"[...] Ambient music is often, purposefully, less than the sum of its parts: small elements that in combination seem to distract from each other, creating a void where, with a slight adjustment, instead there might have been fierce collisions and considerable density. Listening to the brittle, elegant, just-shy-of-neutral glisten that is “Alunecând din glasul unui înger” (or “Sliding the Voice of an Angel,” translated from the Romanian), the ear moves from rough textures to echoed piano to ringing phones to piping rhythmic elements, none of which last long enough to serve as a point of orientation. Instead, one meanders through a gentle, ever so slightly worrisome landscape. [...]"
