Transient Beauty released on CD by Luc Ferrari Competition

Transient Beauty for Tape is now released on a CD in limited edition by the organizers of the Interantional Electronic Music Competition “Luc Ferrari – Presque Rien”. 

Info about the CD Here

The work “Transient Beauty” was composed at ICST ZHdK Zurich during a two weeks residency in August of 2015 and it reflects all the dramatic conditions I was going through, in the previous month, during a very unstable (politically and economically) period in Greece. The form of the piece consists in reality a transition from a very dense, noisy, harsh and chaotic sound world to the beauty and tranquility of a calm woman’s voice reflecting the alteration between feelings of immense anxiety and hope.
