Izzy Waan (b.1973) is a Romanian-born rock musician and multi-instrumentalist. During the comunist era he started to play bass guitar and join a few local bands.
Later, after the fall of the iron curtain, he founded the hard rock oriented project OCTOPUS together with Eti Blue and Ringo Warwick. The short-lived band Octopus was active on the local underground music scene.
The barriers and limitations of the mainstream music convinced Izzy to start experimenting with unorthodox instruments and recording techniques in order to achieve a unique sound.
His sound embodies drone sequences, synth arpeggios and psychedelic sonic textures.
On 2 september 2016 "Forty Miles of Dusty Road" was released under Second Harmonic label.
Music is something that evolves vertically...everything else is just horizontal and flat.
Imagine a blend of electric and acoustic guitars , analog organs, FM synthesizers, drone sequencers and home made percussion recorded on DAW and long forgotten tape machines through hand made equalizers and tube preamps. What you get is a unique sound and a style almost impossible to classify as a genre. This "outside of mainstream" approach to music will lead you to a journey of limitless possibilities.
Forget about the seatbelt, the end of all restrictions lays ahead !
