With Ohnody, her all-embracing arts project, Dóri Hegyi produced one of the most innovative Hungarian albums of 2020. Her second album is to follow this year. After last year's art-pop debut, Egy igaz szerelem (A True Love),... which featured songs sung solely in the Hungarian language, her second upcoming album deals with themes related to the limits of verbal communication. She will perform songs from the two LPs in a concert featuring a live band and dance choreography matched to the overall conceptual framework of Ohnody's visual world.
Though Dóri Hegyi first made her name as a guest singer (Belau, mïus), since 2017 she has been creating her own artistic pop songs, which feature a blend of electronic sounds, folk music and dark-pop, as well as lyrics written at first in English and then Hungarian on themes of spirituality and psychology. Ohnody's singing and intonational style - with no concern for rules of convention - and her unmistakeably unique, free-flowing lyrical world express universal themes through her own personal filter, while her instinctive performances are a stirring experience for the listener. Ohnody's music is supported by the striking visuals of the project's album sleeves, videos and playfully theatrical concerts. The material from the upcoming 2021 album was created using a similar conceptual framework to the first. However, while Ohnody's debut album presented the seven stages of love, the follow-up is concerned with the limits of verbal communications, and how difficult it is to transform the clarity of emotions into words. With that idea in mind, several of the songs were written in a language which their author doesn't otherwise speak. Using material from each of the two albums, the concert will create a dramatic arc aided by choreography from the dancer Bettina Jurák.
