About

Having the fundamental principles of musique concrète as a starting point, Vago Tedosio utilises KET’s upright instrument to detach sound from its presumed rhythmical and harmonic function and performs a set of improvisations as well as a prewritten composition for solo piano.

From the early days of tape-based experimentation until the gradual formation of the musique concrète genre, the occurred sonic renaissance transformed music to soundscapes, sculptures and tumultuous vibrations more physically experienced than heard. Can an unplugged, “traditionally” played piano be capable of delivering a similar experience nowadays?

The concert will also feature the premiere of a work L.E.C.E.L.A: Après une lecture du Sartre in three movements after Jean-Paul Sartre’s seminal play “No Exit” (Huis Clos).

This concert is part of the Voulez-vous Festival, a collaboration between KET and Association Théâtre Dionysos et Apollon.

Vago Tedosio

Vago Tedosio (London – Athens) studied piano and composition at the National Conservatory of Athens and at Concordia University of Canada.
Self-taught later on and with a deep interest in fusing physics with art, he explores the application of Chaos Theory in music and its influence on the compositional development of music forms. A trademark of his music is the ever-going evolution of sound mass to melody and back, thus establishing an environment where harmony and counterpoint interrelate to sonic
densities.
