Currently working on a series of soundscape compositions based on recordings made in Greece during August and December 2015.
The sounds of several cities, islands, forests and small villages are all gathered 
to define the greek society through sonic events.

 

Coming soon on a few pieces for fixed media and a few live solo performances.


Preparing a re-mix of 6 sonic portraits composed for the sonic_image exhibition/installation.
