Domingo cinzento, manhã de chuva miudinha e uma descoberta nova na rota das novas sonoridades : Geronyom (nome artístico de Ricardo Jerónimo Martins), músico, compositor e executante de Terra Pan (one of the newest musical instruments on the World, combining Steel Drums from Trinidad & Tobago, Gamelan from Indonesia, Ghatam from India, Gong from China, Tibetan Bowls from Tibet and Udu from Africa), que o tem acompanhado em inúmeras digressões internacionais ao longo dos últimos dez anos.
Let’s “HANG ON SPACE”.
DA SUA PÁGINA OFICIAL
“I’m an independent musical artist, composer, percussionist & sound healer. In the past 10 years I’ve been living, traveling and playing around the world. Brazil, India, USA, Morocco, Thailand, and European Countries (Spain, France, Switzerland, Ireland, Wales, England, Finland, Holland, Norway, Hungary, Poland, Czech Rep. and Sweden) have been my destiny while seeking artistic, intuitive, genuine and creative musical approaches.
I’ve studied music in Waldorf School in Helsinki – Finland. The holistic approach used by Rudolf Steiner method gives attention to each human being as an unique source of art and reveals each ones secrets skills. Mine is the emotional freedom to express my feelings though music.
The ‘Momentum Music’ it’s what i really love and it’s the inspiration to play organic musical melodies with hypnotic grooves and heart beats.
I’ve been performing in festivals, live concerts, live art journeys, dance classes (biodanza, 5rythms, contact impro,vital-development), meditation & yoga classes, theater acts, street art and soundtracks for movies.
Geronyom, artistic nomination, comes from my portuguese civil name Ricardo Jerónimo Martins. It’s also inspired in: Geronimo the indian native american apache that lived to be a free human, ‘Y’ from Ying / Yang balance, ‘G’ the Generator of Bio Music & the sacred mantra “OM” (heaven, earth & underworld).
I’m cooperating with Terra Tonz – TerraPan from USA (www.terratonz.com), because i believe in the full life time tuning skills from Ellie Mannette (creator of Steel Pans from Trinidad & Tobago) and the Visionary Maker of TerraPan Christopher Ryan Karanovich.
