“Empathy is the ability to experience another person, another creature, a forest, a lake, nature and all the world inside yourself. This process is a drastically different and a far deeper and more errorless form of communication than the one we are all used to nowadays. Our mission is to find and develop this ability, and then to share it with people by means of music. This is how we might plant a seed of a new experience or help revive a forgotten one. And this is the reason why our band has such a name and our music can hardly be limited by one certain style only. Empathy Project is actually our way”.
Empathy Project concerts are not just about performing for the audience, but also about offering a mutual process. This is a powerful flow of music of different genres and styles, which rushes to you from the stage. The majority of pieces were composed by band members themselves. And the audience comes in order to co-exist rather than only to listen.
The band’s repertoire is based on solo songs and vocal duets. Dmitry’s polyphonic compositions created by means of Loop Station stand apart. The musical language of the band is rather non-homogeneous. One can find both pieces with complicated rhythmical and harmonic patterns and compositions which are easier for perception. Quite often, this contrast is included into one track. The music is a mixed blend of jazz, folk, rock, contemporary, indie, funk, pop etc. HISTORY AND BAND MEMBERS
