Once a month, Jannis Anastasakis (guitar, analog-synths, live-electronics) and Natalia Manta (digital & analog visuals) invite musicians and visual artists to KET to create together an in situ, audiovisual project. In the fourth “Sound of Color” of the season, they improvise on two sound installations of Panú.

Installation 1 / ”Artistic Couple”

A three-meter perforated metal surface placed between Jannis and Natalia becomes the common field of expression of the two artists, acting as a projection surface and as a musical instrument.

Installation 2 / ”Threads” (feat. Yiorgos Stavridis)

A guitar, a double bass and a piano create an interactive “instrument” space where each is connected to the other in a network of stretched threads. The work is recreated and extended in the moment by the performers and the audience, constantly creating new soundscapes.

The musician and composer Panú (Panagiotis Manouilidis) lives in Athens. He has worked as a composer and musician with the Münchner Kammerspiele, Schauspielhaus Graz, Maillon, Théâtre de Strasbourg, Festspielhaus Hellerau, Piccolo Teatro di Milano, the National Theatre, the State Theatre of Northern Greece, the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, the Onassis Cultural Centre, the Kalamata International Dance Festival, RootlessRoot, Baumstrasse, etc. He collaborates steadily with the directors Prodromos Tsinikoris, Anestis Azas, George Koutlis, Pantelis Flatsousis, developing a personal language of live sound dramaturgy. In 2018, he created the duo Koka&Panú with the dancer Konstantina Efthymiadou. Since 2019, he designs and constructs original musical instrument-sculptures that function as interactive open field sound installations or stage spaces (“Instrument inside Silo – Study on memory” (2019), Dexamenes Seaside Hotel, Kourouta Ilia, “Instrument on the Windmills – In Memoriam” (2023), Windmills of Chora Amorgos).
