Once a month, Jannis Anastasakis (guitar, analog-synths, live-electronics) and Natalia Manta (digital & analog-visuals) invite musicians and visual artists at KET to create together an in situ, audiovisual project.

In the fifth “Sound of Color” of the year, they improvise with Giuseppe Doronzo (baritone saxophone, iranian bagpipe) and Nikos Sidirokastritis (drums).

Giuseppe Doronzo

He was born in Barleta, on the Adriatic coast of Puglia, Italy.

He began his classical saxophone studies at the Bari Conservatory. In 2012 he moved to the Netherlands to study jazz and composition at the Groningen Conservatory. He was recently awarded the BUMA Award Music in Motion 2022, for best composition in short film music.

He has collaborated with Michael Moore, Joe Lovano, Chris Potter, Mariem Hassan, Vince Mendoza, Han Bennink, João Bosco, Kiko Freitas, Robin Eubanks, Paolo Fresu, Tullio De Piscopo, Taylor Ho Bynum, Steve Potts, Roberto Ottaviano, Ralph Alessi, Gianni Lenoci, Tiziana Ghiglioni, Felice Mezzina, Lothar Sthal, Jens Pollheide, Irene Aebi Lacy, Tiziano Tononi, Daniele Cavallanti, Carlo Actis Dato, Benjamin Herman, Jim Black.

“…huge sonore sound; his performance is mystic, multilayered and full of secrecy.” (W. de Joode)

“…Doronzo holds a brilliant argument for the baritone sax as a leading instrument.”  (Trouw)

Nikos Sidirokastritis

Born in 1963 in Athens. He grew up in an apartment in anticipation of spring. In 1978 he began his practical relationship with music. He makes some studies, listens to music from other places. Along the way he meets people, plays music with them, collaborates, makes friends, falls in love, starts a family, rejoices – saddens, disappoints – hopes, dreams, lands in reality, yearns. He stays on the path. These and some more, he tries to carve into the silence with two pieces of wood. He participates in the groups Grigoris Danis trio & Haris Lambrakis Quartet.
