Live in Cyprus – Loop 2016

9th February

I was invited to amazing festival in Cyprus in Jan 2016. Lefkosia Loop Festival happens in Cyprus in the first week of January (5,6th this year). This was a 5th edition of the festival with already established audience and really diverse acts. What a great start of the year! I brought my Elektron boxes both Machinedrum and Octatrack, OP1 and performed with first attempt of live patching my Serge modular setup (Creature+Quad Slope combo). I was amazed with warm welcome from the audience who seemed to enjoy the show. Following the festival I recorded new tunes with new and old friends from Cyprus. Hoping to take them live soon, so watch this space.

 

 



of / [or] live in Cyprus

1st September

Together with of / [or] the band/project of Nektarios Rodosthenos I’ve been invited to perform in Cyprus in Nicosia where we opened AXIOTHEA CULTURAL FESTIVAL. I was thrilled with so warm and positive response from the audience.

The project is an attempt to redefine rebetiko and the traditional love song of Cyprus by six musicians, PhD students at the University of York, with different cultural backgrounds (Cyprus, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Poland, Chile), who approach the traditional music of Greece and Cyprus, filtering it through jazz, electronic and contemporary classical music, and enriching it with ethnic variations that result in a new intercultural communication of six cultures.

The outcome is an interactive acoustic music performance with subtle electro-acoustic elements, and a multilevel cooperation determined by a variety of musical and cultural factors.

Band consist of:

Nektarios Rodosthenous: vocals, guitar 
Jon Brigg: piano
James Mainwaring: saxophone (alto/tenor) 
Charlotte Pugh: …
