feeder sound LIVE STREAMS with TELURIC (dj set) & MARIA BĂLAN (live painting)
On April 23rd feeder sound opened the live streams sessions, containing 7 new episodes. For the first episode, we invited two artists from different fields, TELURIC & MARIA BĂLAN, to work together. Actually, the entire process is quite extensive and the artists start working a few days in advance to deliver a concentrated and relevant two-hour performance. It was the first time we had to record the videos in two distinct locations. MARIA BĂLAN painted the 2 x 1.5 m canvas in her apartment located in Bucharest, unveiling her elaborated techniques and secrets. While TELURIC recorded this intriguing and timeless set in his studio in Târgu Jiu.
In TELURIC‘s set, you can hear his own productions and unreleased materials mixed with tracks from friends and other producers from around the world.
“This set is inspired by my recent digging sessions – an excursion through some of my favourite artists’ work, old and new, sprinkled with a couple of my unreleased jams. – Teluric
VJ VLC added some effects across the video to enhance the visual experience.
Extremely detailed and colourful, the painting made by Maria Bălan depicts three characters who wear helmets to protect themselves from the city pollution and look in all directions for an alternative.
“I was invited by FEEDER.ro to paint a big canvas (2×1.5 m) for one of their feeder sound live streams. Accompanied by Teluric‘s music I decided to illustrate this escape plan from the city pollution.” – Maria Bălan

Teluric is a well-known DJ and producer with an intense activity in the local and international electronic music scene. He left Bucharest a while back, relocating to a smaller town somewhere in Romania, a place where he could be more relaxed and dedicate himself to digging and making music.

He also worked with Rackmizar, Joule Imprint and Caph while he signed some amazing remixes for Berg Audio, Ada Kaleh Romania, Floorpiece and Rare Gems, to name a few.
