The Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu recently released a collection of music entitled “The Quest For A Morning Star”, to raise funds for the victims of the recent tragedy at Club Collectiv, in Bucharest (30.10.2015)
All proceeds raised from the paid digital downloads were donated to a foundation collecting funds for the victims.
His campaign ended on 27.11.2015, and Avantgarde Music took over now a physical release in Deluxe A5 digipack: again all profits will be collected and transferred to the Foundation.
Chioreanu is well known and highly respected for his graphic works for At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Napalm Death, Arcturus, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Ulver and many others. A musician himself, he has collaborated with various artists to create “soundtracks” to accompany his exhibitions in the past. These soundtracks have been made available via BandCamp until 27.11.2015, with all proceeds to be donated to help with medical bills and funeral expenses of those who have been affected by the fire.
The Colectiv nightclub fire was a deadly fire in Bucharest, Romania, on 30 October 2015, which killed 60 people (26 on spot, 34 in hospitals) and injured 151. The fire, the worst incident in Romania happened at an entertainment event, occurred during a free concert performed by the Metalcore band Goodbye to Gravity to celebrate the release of their new album. The band’s pyrotechnics, consisting of sparkler firework candles, ignited the club’s flammable polyurethane acoustic foam, and the fire spread rapidly.
Most of the victims were poisoned by toxins released from the burning foam. Overwhelmed by the high number of victims, Romanian authorities transferred some of the seriously injured to hospitals in Israel, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, UK, Norway, Germany and France.
An all-stars benefit project whose profits will be entirely donated to the victims of the 30/10/2015 arson in Bucharest, Romania, where 60 metal fans died while attending a concert by local band Goodbye to Gravity.
Costin Chioreanu, worldwide known visual artist and musician, together with nonetheless than David Tibet (CURRENT 93), Rune Eriksen “Blasphemer” (ex-Mayhem guitarist), Attila Csihar (Mayhem) and Mirai Kawashima (from SIGH) have forged a marvelous album, both musically and visually. Marvelous, intimate and obscure soundtrack-like music adorned with 8 stunning arts / designs made by Costin.
