Alexandros Drymonitis / Babak Ahteshamipour
Using a wide range of media from live coding to electro-acoustic improvisation to produce persistent rhythms and melodies, Alexandros Drymonitis and Babak Ahteshamipour will occupy TV Control Center maximally and minimally with two electronic sets.
Alexandros will present a set of live sequencing and live scoring through live coding in an environment he has developed. The computer keyboard will be replaced by an electric guitar where as he plays, computer code will be written, which in turn will produce electronic music to accompany the guitar. This will create a continuous feedback between music and code, where the music will create code, and the code will create music.
Babak will present a set consisting of playful and dark electronic micro-compositions with multiple changes and variations in volume and acoustic information. These compositions will be combined with visuals of his own in collaboration with Aggeliki Germakopoulou, exploring soundscapes and narratives influenced by gaming aesthetics.
