~ Sunday, December 21, 2014

The « c i r c e :the black cut: » project was launched on March 31st, 2014, when Anna Stereopoulou presented its subject and invitation to it. Many artists, scientists, educators /students from more than 20 countries have responded to the call, giving the opportunity to the project to grow to a vivid and constantly developing ‘being’. With Freedom and Feeling as the only ‘rules’ of the project, the participants meet each other and create via the Inspiration and Information exchange, overcoming any geographical or cultural borders. Main goal is the redefinition of the CUTing edge of our era; the rediscovery of our Senses.
The first events series of the project in Greece represents its first port to reach, when /where we will have the chance to see and listen to the art-works its artists have created, so far, as they got inspired by its subject [Circe /Goddess Mother, Phaistos Disk, The Black Square, various sciences, etc.], as well as they have been helping it to get developed.

: the Family Album…
The launch of the events series on December 15 will happen on a worldwide basis, with the digital release of a Family Album, titled «Vuelo Libre» [Free Flight] and will be released on the Spanish platform «7MNS» (SevenMoons Music). The work consists of nine tracks composed by its participants. The artists -coming all from different corners of the world- were invited to read the project’s theme in order to get inspired and contribute to the formation of a family work. Six of them composed a complete piece and some created various recordings /poems /texts, all of them reflecting moments of their memories, dreams, vibrant pensiveness and sounds of their every day life near or away from their home, which were finally set in three new tracks worked as an ‘audio montage’ by Anna Stereopoulou and signed as “CIRCE Family Work”.
The album includes both music and spoken words (in six languages) and wishes to work as a soundtrack of the listener’s own imaginary film. It has come to life thanks to the artistic contribution of the following artists [a-z]: Charles Antony ~ Asymmetroi Faroi ~ Ilias Charis ~ Yianna Dellatolla ~ Jennifer Eberhardt ~ Erissoma ~ Francis Etto [with Glaucus Noia] ~ Huixtralizer ~ Katerina Iliopoulou ~ Hechem El Jed [with Walyeddine Messaoudi & Emna Omri] ~ Stathis Kampylis ~ Katie Mavromati ~ nobodisoundz [with Mona] ~ Nickos Roumpakis ~ SKRU2URKS ~ Sonic Crime (Nick Piliouris) ~ Anna Stereopoulou ~ Carlos Suero ~ Kyriakos Tsoukalas ~ Vortex Count ~ Whodoes (Vasilis Chountas) ~ Xyramat

: the Premiere of the Work at «IRIS cinema theatre»…
The departure from Aeaea -Circe’s island-, the return to Ithaca and the death of Ulysses offer to Anna Stereopoulou the map on which she draws the sound of her new compositions.
A time and space multidimensional path, in ancient world civilisations and goddesses who worship Mother Goddess, knits a scenario full of contradictions, and later resolved upon arrival to a new Aeaea. In the place where we discover our own very first memory; our own Birth; Life itself; the Universe. Sound is Ariadne’s helping thread; it is the map of (Mother) Earth, which reveals the structure and function of our society. Through research, conversations and guidance by artists and scientists, Anna Stereopoulou composes and performs, directing an audio film (sound installation) offering a musical ‘review’ (Jazz, Minimalism, Ethnic, Atonal, D’n’B, Ambient, Psychedelic, κλπ) and hoping to the reactivation of our Senses.
Thus, on Sunday, December 21st, in «Iris» Cinema Theatre, the composer, with artists coming all from different fields – Labros Kantzos, Michael Mazis, Elsa Papeli, Nick Piliouris and Dimitris Samirinvite us to an Audio Spectacle, celebrating Winter Solstice and wish we Feel the Free Dome of Nature itself, in which we all belong equally.

  1. Reblogged this on LAPKAT – lyric and poetic, kinetic ambient, truth and commented:
    This is happening across Athens, Greece, across the next two weeks and beyond… a global collaborative art, philosophy, science, thought, feeling happening. With exhibitions, creative spaces, concerts and taxi rides, radio and international conversations, and an album – released on 7MNS Music (Spain) – featuring work from across the globe. I’ve made a special mix of the works on the album which will be played in exhibition spaces through this event in Athens – and I will feature as a special new years, January edition of “La Danza Poetica” and here on the blog, 5th January. So stay tuned for that, meantime, more about the project on Anna Stereopoulous’ blog:
