Organza Ray are Hilary Jeffery and Eleni Poulou, working together since the spring of 2022. Early improvised soundtracks to spontaneous storytelling have transformed into future folk songs. Their work includes collaborations with many other musicians and artists, live and in the studio. They are connecting pathways of knowledge through sound, discovering shimmering entrances and underwater arches. 400 years of long notes, open bags and dancing butterflies.
Eleni Poulou has recorded and toured worldwide with many groups including The Fall and Shizuo, and is currently working with Wolfgang Seidel, Bomb Sniffing Dogs, and as ULR with James »Jeanette« Main. She hosts regular radio shows such as “Elope” on Cashmere Radio and “Kastra” on Movement Radio, and has appeared on Montezpress Radio, Rinse France, RTM FM, Noods Radio and NTS with Ono Tesla. Eleni also DJs, writes poetry, creates sound collages, composes music and makes zines with like minded artists such as Theresa Patzschke. She is one half of NOHE NOSHE together with Petr Step Kišur and is part of the Berlin art collective Honey Suckle Company. She formed Organza Ray with Hilary Jeffery in 2022, her most recent solo album is “Karta” which merges Greek Pontic music with other sounds and beats.
Hilary Jeffery has performed internationally in many settings including theatres, museums, jazz clubs, cathedrals, night clubs, festivals, dance studios, bars, cinemas, galleries, streets, forests and mountains. As well as composing Hilary plays trumpet, trombone, tuba, piano, electronics, and sometimes sings. In addition to Organza Ray with Eleni Poulou, his current projects include Zinc & Copper, Minor Tom, Tonaliens, Inconsolable Ghost and Mullet. The sense of silent space he experienced during a journey to the Sahara Desert in 1990 is a central and sustaining influence on his work. More info on this website.
