"Slovenia's unique innovative PIANO & PERCUSSION duo presents original compositions, moving between haunting lyrical melodies and elevating rhythms and beats, blending contemporary jazz and the duo's Slavic roots."
It all started 10 years ago in Maribor, Slovenia...
POINT OF VIEWS
Man can view the same thing from different angles and in a similar way can also hear the same music piece in different ways.
Album "Point of Views" reflects Damir's and Kristijan's unique music approach, through which beautiful melodies and diverse rhythmical structures can be heard as simple, but at the same time can be analysed as complex. It depends from which angle you are looking from.

Unique piano percussion duo presents an exciting and logical mixture of authentic rhythmics, harmony and melodic themes. Original compositions were inspired by different music traditions, which are still being explored by Kris and Damir.
The two musicians come from different musical backgrounds, which they gladly exchange with each other
and emphasize. For that reason, they named their fresh published album "Point of views”.
Ten years of their music style development has produced a unique interaction between percussion and piano. Harmelogic has become an artistic duo that has not been heard
before. Although its music is heavily based on Balkan, Mediterranean and African cultures, you will also hear a fresh modern music influence, with elements of jazz, blues, latin and hip hop.
He finished his basic and master studies at Anton Bruckner’s music university in jazz field, being mentored by Dejan Pečenko and Helmut Schoenleitner. His Master thesis that covers a subject of complex eastern traditional odd rhythms in relation to jazz was only the beginning of his further exploration. His way of composing and
expressive playing creates simple melodies that are easy on the ear, even though they are built on complex and difficult rhythmical patterns, which makes the melodies innovative and original.
