Przemyslaw Goc, better known as Ainu, is a leading artist in the domain of ethnic-world music in Poland with an artistic output consisting of CDs, music videos, over 1500 concerts in Poland & other European countries and a self-made multimedia website.
Przemyslaw Goc was born in 1967. He started off in the blues scene, but as a sound engineer in the Poznan radio station he got so many musical impulses that he started with the realization of electronic suites and etudes. In 1988 Goc presented his first compositions “anatomy of sin” which is a good example of his musically fresh contribution to the electronic music scene in Poland.
Since 1997 he has experimented with music from all over the world, combining electronic synthesizers and rhythm samplers with sounds of nature and ethnic instruments like flutes, pan-pipe, quena and vocalizations, creating an unusual atmosphere. Also during his concerts full of colorful lights, smokes and unique sounds. He has over 1000 concerts experience in Poland and 17 European countries for different audience also for handicapped people.
The year 2000 was a turn in his art creation. He changed his art name from “titilo” to Ainu (meaning the first man in the world history who has made pictures in caves).
Przemyslaw Goc is also a creator of new music instruments, unknown before, like a harp cast in bronze in an eagle shape or metal pan-flutes in Ainu’ tune.
His passion is also photography. He took part in many exhibitions; granted in 1997 in Poznan for “Faces”.
Ainu makes all by himself: recording, manufacturing and distribution of CDs, designing his advertising materials, CD covers, making multimedia presentations and videoclips.
