Incense appeals on the most neglected sense of modern times, the olfactory. It effects the human spirit, influences it’s perception, opens new experiences. These qualities suggest to combine this ancient art, present in any culture, with music in a synesthetic project between listening and smelling, enhancing the experience. 54 concerts, 91 musicians, 13 locations, wood, resin, barks, roots, leaves and flowers from 65 different plants. Until now. Smelling and hearing by their very nature adjust the concrete place of receptive aesthetics into the sensual center of the scene, the human being.

Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia. This ancient substance has been highly valued for its use in incense, perfumes, and traditional medicine. The resin is harvested by making small incisions in the tree bark, allowing the sap to ooze out and harden into beads of frankincense. Known for its rich, earthy aroma with hints of citrus and spice, frankincense has been used in religious and cultural ceremonies for thousands of years. It is believed to possess various therapeutic properties, such as reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and enhancing meditation practices. High-quality frankincense is primarily sourced from regions like Somalia and Oman, where the unique climate and soil conditions contribute to its distinctive fragrance and beneficial qualities.

The dynamic collaboration between the Greek vibraphonist and the German-Romanian double bass player has birthed an artistic partnership that defies the constraints of rigid genre categorizations. Their musical journey is an exploration that draws sustenance from a myriad of sources, ranging from the intricate compositions of 20th and 21st-century classical music to the spirited rhythms of jazz and the evocative tales woven within folklore traditions. This union of sonic exploration transcends the limits of predefined labels, for the essence of their work lies in the realm of boundless creativity.

The intertwining of their unique backgrounds results in an exquisite tapestry of sound, where the vibrancy of balkan heritage converges with the cosmopolitan influence of contemporary european musical landscapes. Like a delicate thread of free improvisation, their performances unfold in an unscripted dance that mirrors the flow of life itself. In this tapestry, notes cascade like rivulets of emotion, merging and diverging, encapsulating moments of sorrow, joy, and the indefinable spaces in between.

The duo's exploration resonates with a shared pursuit of personal expression. In a world colored by their diverse influences, they craft an auditory experience that is both timeless and contemporary—a testament to the way musical traditions and innovations intermingle at the rhythmic core of human experience.

Myrrh incense has a long history of use in religious and spiritual ceremonies, as well as in traditional medicine and aromatherapy.

Welcome to the 4th concert of the series Yannick and Friends.
For this event it is my pleasure to introduce my co-host: "Incense of Music" project based in Berlin.
Incense appeals to one of the most neglected senses in our modern times-the olfactory. It affects the human spirit, influences our perception, invites new experiences and emotions. These qualities inspire "Incense of Music" to combine this ancient art with music in a synesthetic project and engage the senses. Incense, that has been a part of many cultures for centuries, certainly elevates and enhances any human experience.
I have been working with the "Incense of Music" team on live performances in the past, but you are invited to join our very first digital collaboration.
For this special occasion I selected Piano works by Debussy, the ever so inspiring impressionist masterpieces that will take you to the most remote corners of the world, awaken your imagination and create a fantastical and immersive world for you to enjoy at home.
For a full experience we encourage you to prepare in advance by finding an incense you like, and if you need help, the "Incense of Music" team will gladly advise you further personally, feel free to reach out.
The concert has been professionally recorded for a great audio-visual experience.
I will be performing on a Historical 1896 Bechstein Piano.
