A split release with an all-Greek line-up of musicians, all which seem new names to me. On one side it's the duo of Spyros Emmanouilidis (prepared piano, synth, tapes) and Savvas Metaxas (modular synth, tapes and field recordings). I could have recognized their names from such bands Good Luck Mr Gorsky or V.I.A. Both sides of this cassette were recorded in concert in Athens in 2014 and this duo plays a more than excellent piece of drone like synth sounds and lots of electro-acoustic sounds. It seems that there is even an open microphone to pick any voice material coming from either or both players. It's quite a beast (well two, as it's apparently divided in two parts) of heavily dark synth material. The rumble goes way down into the pit of unknown depth. It's quite a 'violent' piece; not as in a noisy piece, but one of lots and lots heavy sound material, operating on a highly dynamic level. On the other side we find Giorgos Axiotis' new project Turbo Teeth. He is also known for working as Free Piece Of Tape, Bruised Lee, Holefold, Balinese Beast, Tom Cruisin' and Wall To Wall Carpeting (and a guy with a sense of humour it seems). Under the latter banner he recorded a piece called 'Pilliad Echons', which is also what he plays here but then in a new version. The credits go out to sampler, feedback and voice, and the curious thing is, that a voice can hardly be heard here. In this piece the more ambient nature of the piece is explored, by beautiful free floating sounds, captured in what seems to a self-generative set of audio filters, transforming the piece on end, in ever changing colours. Great stuff. Professional release with great cover.
