Biographies:

Dimitris Bakas
Born in Katerini in 1975, Dimitris Bakas studied composition (Diploma) with Theodore Antoniou (prof. at Boston University, USA). In 2004 he moved to London for further studies in composition at Goldsmiths, University of London, where he was awarded an MMus and a PhD, under the supervision of Roger Redgate. His music has been performed in the UK, Greece and USA and has successfully participated in competitions worldwide. In 2009 he was a shortlisted composer at Sound and Music. For the academic year 2010 ‐ 2011 Bakas was accepted as a visiting scholar by Tristan Murailat to Columbia University in New York where he completed Post Doctoral Research.

Christos Triantafilou
Born in Katerini in 1977 Christos Triantafilou began his piano lessons with Helen Triantafilou while at the same time he attended theory lessons with Paul Triantafilou (founder of the Panatheneo Music Academy in Athens). In 1989 he continued his studies in Piramatiko Conservatory of Christos Papoulakos in Larisa where he received Diploma in Piano (with Manoilidi Vladimiro) and Degrees in Harmony and Counterpoint, all with distinction. From 2003 until 2007 he attended the National University of Music in Bucharest (Romania) from where he received a degree in performance following the Piano class of Prof. Serban Dimitrie Soreanu. Since 1989 he has been giving solo recitals in various places in Greece and abroad (Thessaloniki, Volos, Bucharest, Tulcea, etc). In 2005 along with pianist Amelia Maria Stoian he formed the piano duet Charmiesto which is dedicated to bringing forward known and unknown Greek contemporary composers.

Stanier Black-Five and Malcolm Riddoch
Body Waves

 

Body Waves is a live infrasonic performance whose sounds go beyond the auditory system to be felt in the body. The primary sound source in this exploration of vibroacoustic perception are the unique recordings made by Stanier Black-Five at the epicentre of the recent earthquakes in New Zealand, which capture the vibrations of its massive aftershocks, collapsing buildings and subsequent demolitions. Riddoch will transform this live performance using MaxMSP and digital mixing for quadraphonic spatialization and waveform extrapolation to accentuate lower frequency harmonics. Sinusoidal analysis will be used to convert the waveform data to controllers in order to automate the spatialization with live mixing to balance the enhanced infrasonics. The performance will emphasize somatic feedback to guide the improvisational aspects as the infrasonic soundscape evolves over time. Body Waves is a spatial work indeterminate with respect to performance and spatialized through a quadraphonic set-up to immerse its audience/participants in this visceral music of the body.

 

This event featuring Australian ensembles on their European tour is also a warm-up for the week-long Goldsmiths Sound Showcase, Sho-Zyg, starting Thurs 20 Sep 2012.

The earthquake and tsunami of 11 March in Japan and subsequent after shocks have claimed over 15,000 lives, with 8,700 missing. Over 270,000 homes suffered damage, and almost 150,000 homes were completely or partially destroyed. Two months on, more than 100,000 are still living in evacuation shelters. The international response has certainly helped in starting the relief operation, but there is still much to be done. Any donations will be gratefully received.
