Honey Bizarre

We dance for laughter, we dance for tears,
we dance for madness, we dance for fears,
we dance for hopes, we dance for screams,
we are the dancers, we create the dreams.

Honey Bizarre is made up of the theremin rebel Gilda Razani and key god Hanzō Wanning – flying through the universe in their spaceship, longing for freedom and improvisation; always in search of new adventures and unusual sounds that make the world dance and dream.
They take you on an energetic sound trip through the great symphony of the world with cinematic sound paintings, thrilling rhythms and haunting melodies and the sky is deep, dark, heavy and sweet!

Gilda Razani is one of the few theremin players performing worldwide. With dance – like grace, the native Iranian forms the invisible electronic field between the two antennas of the etherwave instrument. In addition to her classical playing style, she uses electronic effects to create guitar -like sounds. She plays instruments such as the pipe by somasynths, the aerophone and soprano saxophone too.

Hanzō Wanning enjoys composing, producing and improvising a wide stylistic spectrum of modern music, using piano, synthesizers and a variety of electronic devices in his own unique way.

Together they have composed several albums for their bands and About Aphrodite, film scores and radio plays for West German Broadcasting Cologne and founded the sound branding agency Honeysounds.

On their intergalactic journeys, Razani and Wanning land in special places to perform, be it at festivals, in concert halls, in the theatre or at art exhibitions, at events, in the mountains, on the street or in other universes.

Fantastic visuals by Mario Simon take you on this magical, almost psychedelic journey far away from everyday life.


…Gilda Razani also plays the theremin in the ‚classical‘ sense, but one often thinks of electric guitar sounds that one would not expect from this instrument. Yet she is an incredible virtuoso on this instrument. The theremin is often only known as background music, but in Gilda Razani’s hands the instrument is awakened from its slumber. She shows that there is much more to the instrument and does so with a naturalness that is fascinating. Little Deep Miss Strange is a great album that we wish many listeners. Gilda Razani and Hanzō Wanning are also more than convincing under their new band name Honey Bizarre. Excellent from front to back and therefore highly recommended! 

…The duo draws on a colourful array of instruments and live equipment, served by outstanding improvisation skills and a fine feel for „music for dancing and dreaming“.

…If musical comparisons had to be made, then bands such as TANGERINE DREAM or PINK FLOYD would be suitable references. Because like these two heavyweights, HONEY BIZARRE also know how to create a variety of moods with supposedly calm music.

… The duo delivers sounds that you can dance to with your eyes closed in the strobe light, or alternatively meditate to. It’s psychedelic, mystical, tinkling, a little eerie or even relaxing and beautiful.

…the music unfolds a hypnotic, even psychedelic effect, carries you into another orbit. Neither Pink Floyd nor Genesis have managed that!

 …This is clearly made by people who have a pure love for their craft and sit at it until it becomes something almost fantastic, which these songs are. The musicianship here is perfect and the ear for mixing textures to create sounds that are so massive and expansive and turn into a melody and something with drive behind it is absolutely incredible. That’s part of the place you get drawn into when you listen to the album. They get experimental, they get fun, and it’s thought-provoking music, which I enjoy. I give this album a 9 out of 10, which is quite a rarity. Beautiful from start to finish, and the fascination remains. I want more!

Was that jazz? Was that techno? Well, it was pretty brilliant! Honey Bizarre took the Gdanska to a new dimension with their electronic music. Great class with this performance. More of this !!!
