Two sets of electronic and electro-acoustic sound by RETE and Sister Overdrive.
Rete consists of Savvas Metaxas (Inverz / Good Luck Mr. Gorsky) and Vassilis Liolios (Eventless Plot), both members of granny records. Using modular synthesizers, tapes, samplers, field recordings, objects and sounds from drum and cymbal surfaces they create electroacoustic compositions, exploring similarities and contrasts between physical and electronic sound. They are currently recording their third album approaching rhythmic ideas, preceded in 2021 by Temporal (Dasa tapes, 2021) and s/t (Granny records, 2012).
