This is the latest 2022-CD set released in January 1 by Greek psychedelic sound writer Tasos Stamou, limited to 200 copies.Includes 2 noise drone songs.Digipak and shrink specifications.The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

This two-disc album is meant to showcase two different practices in my music: live performance and studio work.
It's from a staggeringly different location, but it's the result of years of experimentation to achieve a simple and complete electronic acoustic setup both on stage and in the studio.The original idea is an acoustic instrument that produces sustained sound in a way that is electronically manipulated but retains all the organic and sensory qualities of a traditional organized acoustic instrument, often referred to as an "instrument." It was to compose and play at.

This release is my newest attempt to clash these two aspects of music production and offers a sonic journey into my personal involvement in sustained music. Moving Furniture Records has been the platform for releasing this kind of music since the beginning of this journey.
These exploratory sounds are inspired by the sound quality of acoustic instruments, while researching techniques for long-lasting sounds that are complex and narrative enough to inspire the listener while physically influencing the listener. It is constantly affected by the distorted mirror / magnifying glass effect of electronic manipulation.

Description and bio by Tasos Stamou:

The occasion of this double album is to present the two different practices in my music, live performance and studio work.
Although phenomenally coming from a different place, it is a result of years of experimentsations to bring a simple yet complete electroacoustic set up both on stage and in studio. The original idea was to compose or perform with acoustic instruments generating sustained sounds in a way that , although electronically manipulated, would retain all the organic and sensual qualities of traditional organized sound making devices, often called “instruments”.

This release overall is presenting my most recent attempts to collide these two sides of music production and to deliver a sonic journey to my personal engagement with sustained music.'Moving Furniture Records' has been my platform to release this sort of music since the beginning of this journey.
While studying the art of prolonging a sound for long enough to physically affects the listener, yet complicated and narrative enough to stimulate the mind too, these exploratory sounds are inspired by the acoustic instruments' sonic qualities, always under the influence of the distorting mirror / magnifying glass effects of electronic manipulation.

About Tasos Stamou:


"Electroacoustic music composer and performer, alternative electronic music instrument maker, tutor and sound technologist.

During a decade of sound performances and recordings, Tasos Stamou has developed a unique style of live electroacoustic composition. Long and continuous pieces are created on stage or in the studio using a “portable electroacoustic music studio”. His gear consists of acoustic (prepared zither) , reeds, recorders, objects) and electronic instruments (handmade electronics, modular synthesizer systems and live processed feedback loops). Based on sustained tonal textures and free improvised instrumental solos, his live compositions create a particular and unique atmosphere of ritual noise.

He is currently leading a workshop series exploring circuit bending & hardware hacking for experimental sound production.

Tasos Stamou has an eclectic body of recorded work, released by exploratory music labels (Moving Furniture, Lal Lal Lal, Linear Obsessional Recordings, Orila, Triple Bath, Kukuruku Recordings, Absurd, Coherent States).

He has performed across Europe and the US in festivals and venues for innovative sound (Incubate Festival, Cafe OTO in London, Supernormal Festival, BENT Festival New York, Cave 12 in Geneva, Sounds of the Underground Festival, Ausland in Berlin, CologneOFF Festival, Onassis Cultural Center in Athens, and many more). Although mainly a solo performer and recording artist, he frequently collaborates with other sound artists, improvisers and experimentalists (such as Adam Bohman, Alan Wilkinson, London Improvisers Orchestra, Mike Cooper, Andrea Parkins, Kuupuu & Lau Nau, Terry Day, Adachi Tomomi, Ilan Manouach, Ignaz Schick, Magda Mayas, Arma Agharta, Thodoris Ziarkas, etc.) at various venues and festivals for innovative music.

Although his music is inspired by different contemporary and traditional genres (free improvised music, musique concrète, noise & drone, folklore and ritual / tribal music) his main influence is personal states and experiences of the sonic environment, such as early childhood memories (“ Infant ”, 2007), the loss of a beloved person (“The return of the long lost one”, 2013) or the experience of a rural festivity (“Koura”, 2016).

Tasos is also developing a series of visual art; showing his work at occasional exhibitions / installation shows and illustrating media. "
