New CD out!

A minimax CD, which has twenty-one minutes of music, and the outer ring is semi-transparent. This is quite some intense music and maybe as such the choice to do this as a mini CD is a wise one! Intense, short but very good. Vital Weekly. Jonas Kocher (accordion), Ilan Manouach (saxophone), Dimitris Papageorgiou (violin). CD, 21 minutes

“With its fusion of human and electronic soul, this latest transmission from Glacial further establishes the duo as an exciting force within the more experimental corners of the house and techno community, paying respect to the music of the past while reaching forwards into previously unexplored territory.”

Harvested is out!

An anthology curated by microworkers. HARVESTED is based on found content, an arbitrary selection of adult films. It has been entirely fabricated by an orchestrated, finetuned set of scheduled routines, web scripts and task-based swarm intelligence. Material for this book was assembled from a decentralized network of peers and was filtered by an anonymous population of microworkers. I am very excited to announce that copies of Harvested have reached its different co-producing publishers in France, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal, Greece, Italy, Spain and soon Mexico and South Africa! Write me for more information.

Workshop with Iris Karayan

In collaboration with Iris Karayan, this workshop is specifically conceived for dancers and musicians with visual disabilities. Through its 12 weekly sessions at the Onassis Cultural Center, we will explore how to build a personal pool of sounds and gestures and learn how to use nature as an analogy for territorial expansion in order to gradually build a collective choreography and a sound piece.
