Musical Storyteller. Stimulating hungry minds.
Anna Jordan was born in Hungary and uses the pseudonym Anna Jordan Project for her visual artworks since 2004. In 2015 she took up another artistic name The Allegorist to express her auditive visions. She is working as an electronic music producer, composer, visual artist, painter and sound designer.
Her multi-perspective art combines different media, genre and styles formed by thinking in a transdisciplinary way.
The Allegorist is a comprehensive electronic music project with a holistic approach based on musical storytelling. It stands for an imaginative journey through all ages, for a better future. The project mixes all styles and genres and sets no limitations. Every great idea is welcomed and included into the mindset of a diverse unity.
The Allegorist sings in the fictional and majestic Mondoneoh language, to connect all nations. The name is broken up into three parts. The first is 'MONDO', which is a collection of dialogues between a pupil and a Zen Buddhist teacher, designed to obtain an intuitive truth. The purpose of 'NEO' is to update values for the 21st Century, which transcends the hierarchical, gender-biased, outdated aspects of traditions to one community of equality, diversity and inclusion. The letter 'H' at the end symbolises the bridge between past and future, us and them, and the balance of darkness and light, yin and yang, the micro and macro, nothing and everything.
In 2017 Anna Jordan began working simultaneously on music and video production, which resulted in her second album Hybrid Dimension I. It is a narrative audiovisual album and came out with still images, moving pictures and a short storybook in the genre of speculative fiction, where the story also has an underlying philosophical meaning. This first part of the Hybrid Dimension Trilogy was released in July 2018 at Detroit Underground, based in LA.
From the Hybrid Dimension I. collection the music video Humandroid Lovers was officially selected by the Hong Kong Arthouse Film Festival and was screened at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in June 2018 and by the Brussels Independent Film Festival 2019 which was screened in February 2019. The music video Falling Astronaut was selected by the Berlin Sci-fi Filmfest 2019, screenings were in November 2019 at the Babylon Cinema in Berlin.
An alumnus of Amplify Berlin, Anna Jordan worked as an artist in residence in January 2019 under the mentorship of Robert Lippok in Berlin.
In 2020 she worked as an artist at CTM Festival's art residency Musicmakers Hacklab ''Shapehifters''.
