André Pogoriloffsky

André Pogoriloffsky is the pen name used by Andrei Covaciu- Pogorilowski for his book “The music of the Temporalists”. He was born in Bucharest, Romania, in February 1968.

Starting with 1982, he studied music independently, helped by several private professors.

In 1989 A.P. started to hear in his head a strange yet beautiful music that he was unable to notate. Short excerpts were presented on the piano to his musician friends who confirmed that the temporal fabric of that music could not be rendered satisfactorily with help from the traditional, bar-rhythmical, semiography.

Between that point and 1994, A.P. tried to formulate a theory and a notation for that music, the first result being his first published book - “Energies of musical time - essential studies of pulsatory functionalism” (ARARAT Publishing House, Bucharest, bilingual edition Romanian/English, ISBN 973- 96682-0-8).

In the late '90s, A.P. discovered cognitive musicology and started to merge his own discoveries with the bulk of scientific contributions from this interdisciplinary domain. After abandoning several approaches, the final result was his last book “The music of the Temporalists”, available now on Amazon Kindle.

The author is currently living in his hometown, Bucharest, along with his wife Simona and his nine years old daughter Ina.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
