Carpathians Project has been active since 1998, established by Anna Nacher and Marek Styczyński (who previously had been a leader Theatre of Sound ATMAN). Influenced by musical traditions of Eastern and Central Europe (most notably the multicultural region of Carpathians mountains, spanning through Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia), free jazz, the philosophy of sound of classical Indian music and contemporary classic the duo creates compositions based on improvisation using plethora of traditional instruments from Asia, Europa and Australia. Prepared electric guitar, home-made analog electronics, field recordings made during their numerous travels around the world and bastardised radio waves add up to the distinct atmosphere of their music. Anna Nacher is also praised for her vocal technique – she has mastered various types of traditional styles of singing known as throat singing, developped through Central Asia and Eastern Europe. She regularly run voice trainings through a series of workshops (Poland, Greece, Germany, Slovenia).
The Magic Carpathians Project has released highly acclaimed albums on Obuh Records, Drunken Fish Records, Vivo Records, Requiem Records, Reverb Worship as well as on their self-managed label, World Flag Records. They are present on many compilations released in the UK (compilation “New Music from Central and eastern Europe” released by The Wire), Sweden, the U.S, Italy, toured USA in 2001 and 2006 (playing at many clubs: from Knitting Factory, NYC through SXSW, Austin to Bottom of the Hill, SF as well as performing at legendary Terrastock Festival in 2006) and Europe (Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Central Europe). The cooperations include the split CD with the American group Cerberus Shoal released on Northeast Indie and recent album with guest appearance of Eric Arn (of Crystallized Movements and Primordial Undermind).
