I’m Ana Patan, an independent musician from Berlin, playing a white electric guitar with twisted frets and mean pickups.
Surviver of quite a few catastrophes, including an Economics university, Ceausescu’s communist regime, and a serious chocolate overdose on my first visit to Paris, I've been soaking in each new climate and culture I’ve been living in, taking the best of it, moving on and making a song about the experience.
Listeners have been welcoming the aesthetics and energy of my songwriting, and I join their bemusement about the music style turning out as an end result. I like to give attention to the small pleasures and questions of our everyday existence that all of us face, and stay as honest and positive as I can. Like holding up a mirror to individual and humanity with all their faults and splendour.
This summer and fall would have been chock-full of concerts and festival dates for me, they were planned to be the very point to finally come out to meet you and present you with all this music that I’ve been working on for quite a few years, gathered in an analog-recorded album called “Spice, Gold and Tales Untold”.
But life doesn’t really care about your plans, it just hits you with a new surprise, and if your hands are full with hang-ups and expectations you won’t catch what it is trowing at you.
What came my way now was this opportunity to stream a concert together with Dringeblieben.de. They offer the expertise with streaming which I’m totally lacking, and the professional standard that I firmly believe you deserve.
In this arrangement I can fully focus on playing my very first digitally streamed concert ever!
It will be a proper concert, from the studio, and two very talented musicians will be backing me up on drums (Rickard Langnesund) and bass (Per Stadin).
And, just like any proper concert, there will be tickets that you can buy. They’re called “Support tickets” exactly because they’re optional - you will be directly contributing to the music making, but only if you are so inclined. You know, just like doing a good deed when no one’s watching, that kind of thing.
Even better than a proper concert, you can comment, cheer, share impressions, which on our side will be much appreciated since we can’t see or hear you, but we will try to feel your spirit!
So connect your computer to the large screen TV and the big speakers, share the link with your friends, sit yourselves comfortably with your lemonade (that’s what you’re drinking at 7PM on a Sunday, right?) and enjoy!
