Amplidyne Effect is an improvised multimedia project by Martin Georgievski (b. 1988 in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia). The project frequently takes form as a live improvisational journey through experimental, ambient, contemporary classical, and drone sounds with performances at various festivals, venues, and internet streams.
Forming a generative spectrum of sounds through long improvised sessions and recordings, Amplidyne Effect records using an arbitrary selection of instruments ranging from electric guitar, prepared instruments, field recordings & samples, synthesizers, electronics, piezo microphones, and other types of unusual instruments. Finding the inspiration in art, music, nature, and technology itself, the project always tries to push the boundaries of sound or rest in the nest of its niche.
As part of the constantly shifting and growing sound, Amplidyne Effect has collaborated with artists from United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Argentina, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Macedonia, Serbia, and Italy, either live on-stage or through internet streaming and recording sessions. Amplidyne Effect has performed at events and festivals such as Skopje Jazz Festival, Pohoda (Slovakia), Waves of Ambience, Philosophical Film Festival, PNEM SoundArt Festival (The Netherlands), KRIK Festival, Biennale of Western Balkans (Greece), Music Tech Fest, D Festival, ImprovE (Belgrade) and many more.

Post Global Trio
Post Global Trio is an ambient/drone collective composed of Toni Dimitrov, Dimitar Dodovski and Martin Georgievski, usually as an improvised live performance band. Post Global Trio is an experience. Experience that you can feel on the journey through distant lands. Inside or outside thyself. Image of clear and subtle soundscapes and landscapes. Enter into the woods. Leave the city behind the horizon. Forget about it… Now enter more deeply. In thyself. And find yourself. The way you were before you have long forgotten. The project is created as a continuity of communication, collaboration, necessity of developing a certain scene. Sound picture of long-term mutual philosophical meditations.
Started in 2014 with the release of “Quadroscopia”, Meissa Ionis is the experimental side project of Amplidyne Effect. Meissa Ionis borrows concepts from Doom Drone, Dark Ambient, IDM, and raw electro-acoustics industrial sounds all improvised on the spot.
