Manos Plitsis is a greek electronic musician based in Athens. Besides his studies in mathematics, music research and a current PhD in neural networks and sound, he has been actively working with sound generating software, employed to create rhythmically driven ambient music. Through the use of handheld gaming consoles (Game Boys) running on self programed musical software, combined with keyboards, synthesizers and effect pedals, Plitsis manages to create warm ambient environments and textures. His improvised sets submerge the listener into captivating and emotionally neutral voids, with striped rhythms serving as anchoring points throughout. His contribution to the series, made in his bedroom, exemplifies how his music may serve the same function plants or furniture would within one’s home.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
