It´s challenging times for the album release but I trust the topic of mental, physical health and balance of the individuals and the society is very actual. So I ´m grateful my new beautiful album Quiet, Please! (Klid, prosím!) is out. Thank you for your support!
I´ve been working on my multimedia project Quiet, please!. I will bring you new songs that are interconnected with visual art and public events. Be a part of the story which is a journey to responsibility, courage, hope, respect and good health.
Quiet, please! is a multimedia project containing new songs and a set of graphic art called “milliatures”. The project inspires to renew quietness and respect to our body and psyche. Each song with graphics is dedicated to a certain part of body. The songs (Hormonal, Anti-Anxiety, Ophthalmic, Respiratory, Thyroid, Cerebral etc.) help us to be aware of the fact that stress and fears may cause various health troubles. Trust, respect, love and tranquility as well as responsibility helps curing. The songs are written and sung in Czech and also Latin as the historical language of medicine. New album has just been released in May 2022 and Milli Janatková recorded all the vocals and instruments herself, as she did with the albums Transformation (2013) and Deep (2020), including her original music and lyrics.
Recently Milli has focused on freedom of “voice in movement” that she has worked on since 2008. Fascinated by improvisation, her experimental approach uses her whole body—breath, voice, and movement—and rhythms “played on just about anything” to make music that combines elements of Jazz, Latin American, A Capella and World music, as well as experimental electronics and ambient music. She interconnects Quiet, please! songs with other projects To My Roots and Transformation and interactive improvisation on audience´s topics. Milli´s solo performances contain a nice atmosphere of respect, trust and spontaneous communication.
Music – Quiet, Please!
Hormonal song from the Quiet, Please! project has been honored with the nomination for The 15th Independent Music Awards 2016, USA.
Drawing and graphics
Milli has been creating anatomical drawings since 2014 according to the professional publication for medics written by Johannes W. Rohen, in which one can find photos of real anatomical preparation. These drawings are the base of black and white and coloured linocut prints that are cut and printed by the author herself – graphics “milliatures”.
The goal of the project is to get deeper knowledge of our body and psyche, their functions, perception of values of our personality and life. We all are responsible for our physical and mental health, and for the state of the world around.
Milli has been working on this project since 2014 when she experienced hardships with her own health. There were so many troubles that she decided to make a multimedia project and get healthy and balanced, which was successfull, thanks God. 🙂
