The Afterlife of n+1 Legendary Songs

Hungarians are famous for the high number of sunshine hours, good wine, pálinka and peculiar sense of humour. One might think that such a fame could only mean a bunch of happy people who enjoy life no matter what. But don’t let yourself be fooled.

Conversations with El Horto

Hungary’s most Surreal artist speaks to VanMusic. László Hortobágyi was born in 1950 in Budapest, although he didn’t plan it. Therefore, besides his musicological and indological studies, he takes part in the design and building of a few organs throughout Hungary in Eastern Europe.

Conversations with El Horto: Interview with László Hortogabgyi

I don´t consider myself a musician because music is a time travel for me. As a child I dreamt of otherworldly figures whose opal spaceships landed in front of our house. After long conversations I asked them to take me, in fact to save me from this, already then perceptibly hopeless situation.

Maybe a combination of Jodorowski and the Quay brothers in cinema with a touch of sci fi. He absorbs the millenarian knowledge of the old civilizations to extrapolate it to modern technology.
