Vazha Marr is a musical producer from Tbilisi. His Experimental pieces meditate on variety of genres from ambient to Glitch or conventional melodic structures. Inspired to re-define the legacy of past decades, Marr’s multi directional narratives may often unite under the tag of IDM. However, with a weapon of choice being live instruments and aleatoric flow, especially during his performances. In 2011 Marr became a part of indie-electronic duo ‘Me and my Monkey’ (MAMM) and performed various lives in Europe. Outside his solo-projects, he actively collaborates with musicians of different backgrounds in search of new sound, be it folk music, neo-classical and experimental techno.
