Athens-based musician and vocalist Evita Manji is connecting the dots between the human experience, climate change, quantum physics and death, in an attempt to dig deeper into the primordial truth of existence. Through their carefully constructed practice of synthesis and sound design led by choir-inspired vocals, they fabricate musical worlds consisting of ever-expanding sonic organisms and shapeless solid non-materials. In 2021 Evita launched their platform myxoxym, releasing the singles “OIL/TOO MUCH” and “EYES/NOT ENOUGH”, as well as curating the first edition of the fundraising compilation series “PLASMODIUM I”, aiming to raise environmental awareness and provide support to relief efforts for wildlife affected by forest fires in Greece. Since their debut performance at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) alongside Eartheater and Soho Rezanejad (Athens, September 2021), Evita has performed in cities across Europe including London, Prague, Krakow and Zurich, and at festivals such as Unsound, Borderline, Rhizom and Lunchmeat — where they shared the stage with Amnesia Scanner at the Convent of St. Agnes. They have collaborated with numerous artists across various media and exhibited sound pieces at galleries like Kunsthalle Basel (in collaboration with Young Boy Dancing Group) and Saigon Athens.
Evita Manj is live for their last album Spandrel?.
Spandrel? has been released in January 2023 via PAN Records. Through this prospective work, they pose thought-provoking questions about enduring in the face of immense loss and explore the distinction between essential elements of the self and mere adornments. Their tracks, expertly crafted from a rich blend of contemporary club music, baroque pop, and experimental sound design, provide a lens through which Manji examines their relationship with the world at large and within themselves. By deconstructing systems of control and emphasizing interconnectedness, they invite listeners on a transformative journey. Evita Manji stands at the forefront of a musical revolution, fearlessly pushing boundaries and creating an awe-inspiring auditory landscape. With their experimental production, classical composition, and enchanting vocals, they continue to challenge the norm, inviting listeners to embark on a transformative journey where sound knows no limits. Through their music, they weave intricate tapestries of emotion, reflecting the complexity of the human experience and the interconnectedness of all things.
