Andris Dzenîtis

Woodpecker Project (LV)



Woodpecker Project was started by Andris Dzenītis and singer Baiba Berke. Their aim was to create an attractive, electro-accoustic musical unit, which goes beyond any stylistic or aesthetic borders. It brings together technological and philosophical basis of contemporary music, dynamic power of rock and free improvisation of modern jazz. Though the pieces of the unit are based on former electonical materials, every time during a live performance the unpredictable development of emotional and thematic dimensions amaze the audience and even the musicians themselves. Current members of the band are Artūrs Gailis (electric guitar, improvisation, programming) and Andris Dzenītis (composition, electronics, keyboards, theremin, programming).
