If we chose to quote the classics, nothing would describe Dana better than Paul Gauguin’s “I shut my eyes in order to see.” When she holds her camera, her eyes are the lenses that look around just to find the stories that she can transform into photographs. She captures the images that surround us with the eyes of her mind and of her soul, and what may look ordinary to us is the essence of a person, a place, a scenery or a building to her. Photographs are more than words for Dana, and even though she’s not a writer, she “wrote” captivating stories about Timișoara , its events, places and its people. Always cheerful and feminine, just like a bird, she’s here at one point and there the next: she doesn’t miss a shot.
Mihai is a sound engineer and music producer from Timișoara, well known for his live audio engineering as well as for his studio productions. Before being a sound engineer, Mihai is firstly a musician, well prepared in this field as he deepened his musical knowledge within his master’s studies in Trinity College Dublin’s “Music and Media Technologies”. Among Mihai’s artistic collaborations, the most notable ones would be Negura Bunger, Sebastian Spanache Trip, Beck Corlan, Implant Pentru Refuz, BRUM, Pamant as well as festivals like Flight, Codru, Jazz TM, Timișoara Street Food Festival, Road Patrol Bikers Festival and others. Within the Tribe, Mihai is responsible for everything audio engineering- related, from our live concerts to the recording and post-production of our activities. Tactful and receptive, his spirit is just like a cat. Since the feedback is always positive, we can only be proud to have him on our team!
Flavius or Sebastian Maru (he responds to both names). More than a decade ago you would’ve said that he would become a prestigious computer scientist, but soon after graduating an IT faculty, he left coding behind and dedicated his energy to videography. He is a freelance videographer in not just Timișoara. He’s had numerous collaborations with bands like Phaser, Thy Veils, Skywalkers, as well as social, economic or cultural entities like the World Bank, the National Theatre of Timișoara, UrbanizeHub, Ceetrus Romania and Guntner Group. As to his career internationally, he was involved in projects in different countries like Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Japan and Iceland. In his spare time (if he has any), he deepens his knowledge on different passions like light design. He contributed to different well known shows, concerts and festivals with his varied light show concepts. Lover of animals and a deep-rooted perfectionist, Flavius is that member of the Tribe who can always put us in a good mood with his sarcastic humor and witty replies in any situation.
Sweet and likeable, Paul is the youngest member of the Tribe. His passion for music brought him among us, since he is a drummer in his free time. When we start implementing our projects, he’s like a fish in the sea: always prepared, you never have to tell him anything twice, whether he’s setting the stage or giving a helping hand to the sound engineer or the camera crew or managing the audience in a concert. What animal would better suit him than a bear, willing to enjoy every aspect of life?
Among all of the talkative members of the Tribe, Alex is a melancholic and sometimes solitary spirit. Silent and always receptive to what happens around him, he always takes the opportunity to be helpful and to learn new things. Afterall, when it comes to crafting, there’s nothing he can’t do. Our Tribe’s nest is perfectly set up, and when we have events to set up, his presence is like oxygen to us. And he enjoys it too! Independent and impossible to disrupt his calm state, the giraffe is best suited for Alex.
