Composer/performer Thanos Chrysakis in a studio electronic work, using a diversity of methods and approaches that imply his usual free improvisational approaches by creating a rich and elaborate sound world of distinctive, unique and often warped electronic sound.

Chrysakis, Thanos
Above the Hidden Track An Endless Blaze

Chrysakis, Thanos: Above the Hidden Track An Endless Blaze (Aural Terrains)

Label: Aural Terrains    
Released in: Greece/UK    

"The way that I have composed it might resemble sonic gestures of free improv at some points but this comes out of the compositional process itself and the attitude towards to the material. The diversity of approaches goes against the usual "within a box" mentality of a lot of electronic/electroacoustic music that is produced around. I'm interested in working in this way as it doesn't force me to follow trends and also I want to create a rich and elaborate sound-world."-Thanos Chrysakis
