Presents: Helen Gillet (US/BE) live in Berlin

Helen Gillet (US/BE)

cello – loops – voice

Cellist, composer and improviser Helen Gillet crosses genres and moods by exploring deep funky grooves, electronic loops and her singing voice. Her music is inspired by Avantgarde Jazz, North Indian classical styles, French Chansons and Punkrock. Born in Belgium, Gillet has made her home in New Orleans since 2003. Don’t miss her first Berlin performances in years!

Presents: our logo!

A note from the editor, yours truly Franziska.

As a one-woman-entity, we are proud to be accompanied by a logo from today onwards.

To our great pleasure it was designed by Anna Lind, a half icelandic, half danish graphic designer based in Berlin.

Anna Lind explains:

The mellowtown logo highlights the blogs focus on experimental, improvisational and jazz music, which is shown in the journey that the line takes though out the logo – much like the journey music has taken throughout time, genres, and does through each piece of music.
 

The circle is a basic shape of many instruments, therefore the e and o is surrounded by a circle, this emphasizes the friendliness and inclusiveness but yet professional thought behind the blog.

Feel free to share your associations with the logo by a comment below.
