Between noise and melody, using traditional and electronic instruments in a very minimalist way, Tasos Stamou (prepared zither & electronics), Stephanos Chytiris (drums) and Thodoris Ziarkas (double bass) improvise, producing sounds both familiar and unexpected. Sounds of an undefined nature alternate with melodic shapes inspired by traditional music as well as jazz and electronic music.
The trio has performed at Café Oto and the Clapton Sessions in London, at the Onassis Cultural Center (Athens), at Ypogeio (Thessaloniki) and at the Aichmes Festival (Volos).
The three musicians, who have studied and collaborated with many professionals of the world improvisation scene, have also focused on the theoretical exploration of the principles of free improvisation.
