“We are now here / Grace is with us / Marvelous is Paradise”
Music has been written and performed. New worlds were explored. We now need your help in making this a reality. Releasing our debut record this autumn via Fiver House Records & Cantina Records. So feel free to donate to our noble goal and get the word out there!!
Brains On Fluffy Pillows is an alternative jazz/rock project that was born in Groningen, Netherlands, at the Jazz Department of Prins Claus Conservatorium. It features a lot of sound exploration and in-depth songwriting on various social and fictional themes.
Our lovely enterprise consists of:
- Suzana Lașcu – voice, effects, aka the cerebellum [Romania]
- Tim de Vries – saxophones, clarinets, aka the amygdala [Netherlands]
- Milton Rodriguez Cisneros – guitar, aka the corpus callosum [Spain]
- Johannes Fend – electric bass, aka the hypothalamus [Austria]
- Ugur Kupeli – drums, percussion, aka the pons [Turkey]
Music entirely written and arranged by Suzana Lașcu.
“The music presented on the album contains my very best compositions written in the last 3 years while studying in the Netherlands. Before encountering the highly creative environment at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in the Groningen, I was only singing and arranging jazz standards, so I am deeply humbled to thrilled to be able to bring into the world a complete story of my journey as a creator. I am confident in the quality of the content involved, not only from a writing perspective, but also performance-wise, since all the musicians involved have brought a lot of experience to making this music happen the way it did.” (Suzana)
