SOUND TOPOGRAPHIES


Sound Topographies is a project -introduced in 2015 by F.K.- aiming to discuss, promote and encourage the research on cultural identities in electronic, contemporary and electroacoustic music.

Main subjects of interest are politics, education, history, cultural heritage and composition focusing on distinctive cultural elements.


Part of the project is also a series of soundscape compositions based on recordings made in Greece during the period August 2015 - December 2016.

SONIC PORTRAITS


Preparing a re-mix of 6 sonic portraits composed for the sonic_image exhibition/installation.
Sonic_Image is a project in collaboration with the photographer Chrisa Sereti.

Young people from all over the world are encouraged to imagine that this is their one and only chance to create their own portrait.

Sonic or visual, their portrait reflects their dreams, their fears and/or their unconventional spirit.

 


The 6 re-mixed sonic portraits will be soon available to be published independently.

NEW EMERGENCES

Aesthetics, Politics, Philosophy and New Emergences in Current Electronic Music and Surroundings

New Emergences is a lecture and discussion series highlighting the current debates around gender in electronic, contemporary and experimental music. Within these fields, it is increasingly necessary to give a platform to current advocates for under-represented voices. We believe it is important to expose existing biases that impede the richness of our diversity. By openly discussing how the current environment validifies our artistic works by the identification of our gender, we hope to challenge the existing conditions.
NE is a collaboration project between a group of composers, improvisers, sound artists and professionals in the field of sound art and new music. More info here
