Dzijan Emin is one of the leading contemporary musicians in Macedonia and the region, gaining a great reputation around the world due to the collaboration with world famous musicians such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Francesco Tristano, but also Oscar and Grammy-winning artists, including A.R. Rahman, Frank London, Malcolm Byrne, William Parker, Bob Stewart, Francesco Bearzati, Luca Aquino, Gianluca Petrela, Peter Herbert, Damo Suzuki, “Air”, Gloria Estefan, Rico The Wizard (Daft Punk).
He is a versatile musician with extensive musical experience and a long career – from principal horn player in the Macedonian Philharmonic, to a skilled performer of improvised music or jazz (on one of the many instruments he has mastered); from conducting international orchestras to composing and arranging scores for film and theatre, to playing guitar or keyboards with rock bands, to producing albums, and appearing as the artistic director of festivals, always adding a precious original voice and incomparable musicality to his performance.
As a conductor/producer of various projects, he has worked with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Parisian Orchestre Lamoureux, the Flanders Symphony Orchestra from Belgium, the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra de Cannes, the Georgian National Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Lorraine, etc. Dzijan Emin has been part of many orchestras, including the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, the No Borders Orchestra, the East-West World Orchestra and the F.A.M.E.S. Orchestra, (both as an orchestra member and a conductor) and many others. He has appeared on dozens of albums, on 10 of which as a leader, and has composed, orchestrated and recorded music for many feature films, theatrical performances and countless commercials and the like.
Dzijan has been working with this Magic Orchestra for some time, again making a bold and not-so-typical combination of top-notch jazz and classical music ensembles, combining the rigor of orchestral performance with the openness of jazz expression; spiced with subtle electronics, and certainly coloured by the uniqueness of his striking appearance and personality.
