Sound artist Tasos Stamou will perform a live free improvised set of handmade electronics and souvenir instruments, exploring the gap between noise and litany music.
Stamou is an electroacoustic music composer, a performer of free improvised music, an electronic instrument maker and a tutor, currently based in London. During the past few years he has been exploring and utilizing several different mediums of original sonic creation into various recordings and performances; arrangements with self-modified sound toys (circuit bending) and found objects, electronic music equipment (modular synthesizers & computer applications), acoustic instruments (prepared zither, reeds, whistles, vocals, etc). Mostly as a free improvised multi-instrumentalist performer he has presented live sets in solo projects and in collaboration with other experimentalists and improvisers (London Improvisers Orchestra, Evan Parker’s “Call them Improvisors” orchestra, Adam Bohman, Valerio Tricoli, Kuupuu & Lau Nau, Terry Day, Adachi Tomomi, Ilan Manouach, Ignaz Schick etc.) around venues and festivals for innovative music. Since 2008 he runs “Kukuruku Recordings”, an independent label for ephemeral exploratory sound works. He is currently running workshop series for circuit bending & hacking sound toys for experimental sound production.
