An Embrace' is a collaborative project between the Bulgarian experimental music collective Amek and the German music label Vaagner.
Commissioned by Easterndaze as part of the festival’s fourth edition, 'An Embrace' aims to create a bridge between two communities from the different cultural environments of Eastern and Western Europe.
Each label invited artists from the respective regions to form four duos. Evitceles & Fortunes Brine, Zhe Pechorin & Anasisana, krāllār & Ekin Fil, as well as Vague Voices & Crosspolar collaborated remotely to compose a piece inspired by the project's theme – 'An Embrace.’
The final results are compiled and presented as a joint release between Amek and Vaagner, comprising of a limited edition cassette tape and a riso-printed zine offering further insight into the artists's creative process, as well as writings by S. N., Tsvetan Tsvetanov, Krisztián Puskár and Stanimir Panayotov.
