D I D project is created by Hania Piosik - composer/experimenter/vocalist author of audiobook written for Ministry of Culture and National Herritage. Growing up and living in woods of western Poland (co projects : i.a. Lost Education/LADO ABC, JOY POP, Mikrobi.T, Fall Catalog, di.ARIA).
Since over 10 years collaborating with artists of various music and art genere. Took part in international art festivals (i.a. Radiophrenia(UK), Garbicz Festival(DE), Warsaw Autumn, Soundrive, TRANSITIONS- Copernicus Science Center), hacklabs and art residencies (i.a. WISP LABORATORY LEIPZIG, Ortsgespräche/Goethe Institut). Her main passion is searching for sound anomalies that influence (“stops”) the passing time as a way to get easier into meditative state. During liveacts created by D I D - called AUDIOLEVITATION - her main intention is to re-enact the sense of security in attendees. Placed under blankets, surrounded by authorial ambient/drone compositions listeners can experience intimacy of own journey - in the same time being gently guided by the vocal section - that is about to help reaching a meditative state. Problematic for some may be the fact, that improvised vocal tales are led in own, commonly unknown language… But what if strickt definitions of words sometimes hold us back from understanding the core meaning? That’s just one field of D I D music ventures. Her alias got changed in 2019 from di.ARIA to D I D (Dissociative Identity Disorder) to embrace all of her music actions, that are various in generes and styles.
One of latest is ´AUDIOLEVITATION 2.0´ - project in cooperation with neuroscientist Alessandro Braga (IT) and visual artist Ulysses Fontaine (FR) that shows in real time - using EEG divice - in which moments a listener is getting in/out of a meditative state during D I D vocal and musical influence. To this piece she also invited Olga Georgieva (AT) that was inducting changes in visualisations by brain reactions.
HERE & NOW
WHAT DID IS WORKING ON ATM
Soon: New Music Video
The music track is already finished and the scenes shot. Now everything will be put together. Read more about the intention and the video itself below.
Premiere here and on YouTube.
Whether they exist or not, I leave it to each of you to consider at your own discretion. However something in a miracle-shape started to look from behind the dust of chaos, when listening to the center, I started calling people who were brought by the flow of thoughts, step by step filling in the fragments of pictures that appeared in front of my eyes. (The picture you see above- 1: 1- is one of them). Exactly this image hung in the imagination 2 months before its implementation - and if I followed the critical thinking that said something like: "cool, but where will you find the desert? You live in the west of Poland and you will not be transporting people several hundred kilometers and then tormenting them in full sun for 3 days, people who have just passed their struggles alredy ... "- if I had listened to any voices of this type, none of these pictures would probably have been created. I followed my heart and found Marta.
Marta Karmowska is a great actress and - what I did not know before - a wonderful single Mom. The fact that this strength, with the pure essence of love at the forefront, is able to get us out of every swamp - I saw in Martha's eyes. I saw that she felt this power fully under her skin many times. Like these women, Ania and Tanja who suddenly came to us from far away with their kidows. She felt this power at all times when she created reality from the elements of the impossible. And at that moment I also felt that there there are many processes, mistakes, joys, tippers and triggers, laughter moments ahead, from which there is still a stream of new thoughts, feelings and notes coming up, like:
- Focusing on what we can and forgetting what we cannot
- If I can help anyhow, then it’s only by accompanying someone on the way, learning at the same time from shared moments
- No matter what someone says, looks like, we are exactly the same ‘thing’just located in a different "time"
- That it is always worth telling yourself to stop (if we feel that it is not our direction, when something is creasing inside) and choose a different course.
- Only inside you there is the answer to your question (which does not mean that you need to separate yourself from the outside world - on the contrary, the whole outside world is one big - sometimes quite bent, but still - surface of the mirror and that theres no reason and nowhere to run away from it)
I will write about Marta, Ania, Tanya, Sonia and the process of creating the clip in subsequent posts, until the premiere, because on the one hand, it may lighten our actions a bit, and on the other, it maybe will encourage you, dear reader, to weave own space from yet unknown elements - what after this journey- I definitely recommend : )

The live material comes from the latest album D I D - "END OF XIBALBA" (publisher: Zoharum- new experimental art, 2021), which refers to the concept of fear as a control tool. It is a protest against the intimidation of society and treating people in an oppressive and dehumanised way. It is also a meditative music inviting to reflect on own existence, in order to build inner strength. A force that does not destroy but creates connections between people. This concert is dedicated in particular to those fighting recently for their lives on the Polish-Belarusian border. Concert was organized in cooperation with the visual artist Timoty Leary and the video creator Szymon Korzeniowski in Soulkostel (CZ).

REVIEWS AND ARTICLES
READING FOR FREEDOM
Meditation meetings based on reading aloud, combined with an audiovisual session and the use of authorial compositions for relaxation / meditation. Come with your favorite book or the one you would like to share with others. Backup copies will also be available to grab from our box- who knows, maybe you will find the words you need at the moment? In a space equipped with a "peaceful" atmosphere (blankets, pillows), we will lie down comfortably, drink hot tea, read aloud to each other and share our thoughts. The meeting will end with a meditative sound session (AUDIOLEVITATION).
