sample the album:
"Eventless Plot is a trio from Thessaloniki, Greece. They borrow elements from different genres and aesthetics to build their own hybrid of sound. From free impro and noise to new electronica, electroacoustic composition and jazz, their music remains always unconventional and contemporary. They are experimenting with a variety of instruments, analog sources, field recordings and Max/Msp patches.
Active from 2002 in the experimental scene, they participated in numerous festivals such as "Synch festival" (Athens, June 2008) and shared the stage with many artists like Giuseppe Ielasi, Angel, Vladislav Delay and more. They have several releases in their archive including the full album 'ikon' (Granny records 2009).
Eventless Plot are also working on designing sound and composing for art installations and film. In November 2008 after a request of Thessalonikiʼs International Film Festival along with Granny records label mates Good Luck Mr. Gorsky they composed and introduced a soundtrack for Victor Sjostrom' s "Phantom Carriage".
Currently e. plot's members are travelling between Thessaloniki and the Hague (Netherlands), extending their musical experience by researching on electronic music and participating in many electroacoustic and free improvisation projects (including workshops with Richard Barrett, Peter Evans, Evan Parker, Sarah Nicolls among others) with obvious influence on the development of their new sound."-Aural Terrains
