60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/8/09) [Gherman/Graves]

Music: Marcel Gherman
Dance: Aja Graves

Born in Chisinau, Moldova, Marcel Gherman is a musician, radio DJ and journalist currently working for Sud-Est Cultural magazine. From 1994-2003 he hosted programs on electronic music on the national radio station of Moldova. He studied piano in music school and composition with Oleg Palymski, and has releases under the alias Megatone on labels Tibprod, Simlog, Invasion Wreck Chords, Zaftig, Krakilsk. Has a particular interest in the Advaita Vedanta doctrine of Indian spirituality. This musical composition expresses the texture and color of obsidian, and acts as a metaphor for the feeling of bliss and fulfillment that is intuitively present within each person, for every moment of life.

Aja Graves comes from the state of Utah. She graduated from BYU with a BA in Modern Dance in 2006. Choreography is her particular love; she loves nothing more than creating movement paired with the perfect selection of music. Yes, Aja can dance, but she also likes to cook too. Her recent food successes include an awesome basil pesto, vegetable lasagna, and a hash brown quiche. Eat Me by Kenny Shopsin and Carolynn Carreno is her newest favorite cook book. The chicken salad recipe is to die for. Who knew chicken needed to be massaged? Dancer: Aja Graves
