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 seventh “Sound of Color” of the year, they collaborate with Vassilis Agiomyrgianakis (sound composition, live coding) and Justine Goussot (research, movement, dance) in an experimental performance in which movement data is transformed into sound.

French performer, choreographer and dance teacher Justine Goussot explores, through the application and use of sensors in dance performances, the symbiosis between movement and sound. She has studied classical piano, jazz, vocal techniques, philosophy, musicology and studied contemporary dance and choreography at the Cooperative Conservatory of Bordeaux. She spent many years travelling in Asia where she collected choreographic material related to local traditional and performance forms. She specialised in classical Indian Kathak dance. She created the company La Lali ci in 2011. Her innovative approach can be seen in works such as “[Taal in]-[Taal out]”, which combines Kathak and contemporary dance with algorithmic choreography. In Greece, she has participated in productions at the National Opera, the Onassis Foundation and the Kakoyannis Foundation.

Vassilis Ayomyrgianakis is a composer, performer and researcher. In 2016 he completed a PhD on interactive audiovisual arts. He has experience in live encoding of audiovisual performances and in the development of microcomputer sensor systems for artistic and academic purposes. Part of his research is based on the practical transfer of creative writing to audiovisual storytelling. He teaches Sound Design at the Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts (University of West Attica). He is a visiting researcher at Hokkaido University of Computer Science, Hokkaido (Japan).
