Schopenhauer once said, « it is often the loss of things that teaches their value ». After returning to Geneva from his wanderings through Prague, Berlin and Saint Petersburg, Goodbye Ivan, (alias Arnaud Sponar, former member of Opak) captures the superb musical value of losing oneself deliberately in his upcoming debut album « The K Syndrome ». Cinematographic and melancholic, the music of Goodbye Ivan exposes voids and experiments with space. It is music for wandering into new, unknown spaces, referencing the styles of Yann Tiersen, Sigur Ros and even Radiohead. « The K Syndrome » invites you on a journey; will you take the trip? Goodbye Ivan's « The K Syndrome »has been released in June 2009 on swiss label Shayo Music (November, In Gowan Ring, The Evpatoria Report, Julia Kent, Blind Cave Salamander, etc).
