ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After her long stay in New York city, Terry returned to Greece with the fresh and long-awaited project QUALIA, talking to us about the communication of emotions and the understanding of self and other through music. After creating a strong team with some of the most exceptional and renowned musicians of the Greek scene Terry recorded her debut album at Sierra studios on January 2017 with renowned sound engineer Giorgos Kariotis that also mixed and produced the record. The mastering process took place in New York studios by the sound engineer Jeremy Loucas.

QUALIA BAND :
Terrys' band is a formation of exceptional internationally acclaimed musicians all very talented and established in their own field:, Thodoris Kotsifas on electric guitar, Yiannis Pappadopoulos on piano (both performed in the 2016 Made In New York Contest with their band "Next Step Quintet"), Kostas Konstantinou on double bass (worked with Lou Donalson, Peter Bernstein, Ralph Peterson , director of NAKAS modern music program, collaborated with G.Dalaras, Charis Alexiou, Maria Faradouri, and many more), Michael Kapilidis on drums (multi-national touring with folk singer Eleftheria Arvanitaki including performances in Mexico, SouthAfrica, Ukraine, Finland, UK, Germany and Spain).

CONCEPT:
Qualia is Terry's debut album. It is an attempt to communicate feelings and states of awareness that people may experience through their life line. Each song has an emotional landscape mirroring reality at that time.
The album consist of 10 songs written by Terry during the past five years. It was composed and inspired by life between New York and Athens.
"Qualia are the sensations we are conscious of. They are often referred to as the phenomenal properties of experience and experiences that have qualia are referred to as being phenomenally conscious.
The qualia problem has to do with the communication of feelings. How can someone describe green to a colorblind person? Which is the same as the problem of the self. The person who experiences the qualia can reflect on their qualia. There's is a subjective experience of experiencing them and a peculiar solipsistic quality to it.
Those two problems are like the two sides of a coin. You cannot understand one without simultaneously understanding other. It is uniquely human to have the sense of self, the sense of a future and the self being able to inspect the information coming in.
We create mental representations of the representations, which allows us to manipulate symbols internally in our heads and intimately lead to things like... meaning."
V.S Ramachandran

With her first solo album Terry invites us to feel within the sounds and hear from our heart. A unique collection of melodies, a truly original work with many dimensions and levels, where each piece expresses an emotional state and reflects the delicate look of the young artists experiences.

A new, fresh look at the jazz singing, a charismatic performer and a creator, Terry tells the stories of the musical wanderings in Athens, Corfu, New York through 10 original compositions. The band has just recorded QUALIA in January of 2017 with the support of crowd funding Indiegogo campaign and will release it in spring of 2018. Production takes place in Athens and New York, as did the conception and composition of the songs of the album. Two highlights were the participation of Antonis Andreou ( Pink Martini) on the trombone, as well as of LAB Music Education’s vocal ensemble on the tracks "Mr. Pinocchio" and "This Mountain Of Mine" respectively.
