He perceives sound as a self-evident experience, freed from causality, formalism and directionality of any kind, thus he only focuses on the sonic characteristics and qualities of every individual medium and of every individual space. He creates textures or masses within spaces and then try to explore the sonic possibilities of every individual case. Expression is not his purpose anymore, he prefers letting sound and circumstances (since obviously, his work is site-specific in a great extend) guiding him, seeking architectural potentials in sonic occupation. Sometimes this means aggressively invading the space with noises, sometimes trying to find his own pathway amongst fragile textures or found sounds, sometimes both, sometimes none....
He still works within a "fixed media" or algorithmic context, though, when he feels he needs to do something different, and he does score for humans on every possible occasion. On various cooperations (Giorgos Poulios, Stelios Romaliades, Greg Haines), side-projects (soundwalks, |cHro(m)A|) or occasional experiments, he deals with other ideas or concepts. His work has been performed and presented in Europe and America. He also runs a small company in Greece that organizes cultural and educational events, workshops and gigs.
