Chrysakis, Thanos: A Scar In The Air (Aural Terrains)
Label: Aural Terrains    
Released in: Greece/UK    


"A continuation of the "inscapes" series; a set of compositions based on the structural and aesthetic capacity of sonic matter; a confluence and at times collision of composed and decomposed sound-spectra, based on field-recordings, synthesized and acoustic sounds.

Thanos Chrysakis' output consists of composition, performance, and installation. He was born in Athens in 1971, residing for the last ten years in the UK. His work has appeared on various independent labels, and events in various countries. He composes for electronics, acoustic instruments and environmental sounds, focusing on the structural and aesthetic capacity of sonic matter. His work "Inscape 5" was amongst the selected works at the International Competition de Musique et d'Art Sonore Electroacoustiques de Bourges 2005, in the category œuvre d'art sonore électroacoustique, while "Nekyomanteion" received an honorary mention at the 7th International Electroacoustic Competition Musica Viva in Lisbon. Some recent compositions include: A SCAR IN THE AIR (2008), "Threadshelters" for prepared piano + harpsichord (for Kate Ryder and Jane Chapman, 2007), "Frontal fusion" for oboe + clarinet (2008) and the short piece "Passage Dangereux" for prepared and toy piano (for Kate Ryder, 2008). In addition to his compositional activities he works on performing and recording projects - playing computer/percussion/piano - with musicians such as Dario Bernal Villegas, Oli Mayne, James O'Sullivan, Jerry Wigens and others."-Aural Terrains
