about

“Caveman” is a recorded representative sample of Tasos Stamou’s live sound. Both tracks are complete extracts of improvised solo performances using his portable electroacoustic music studio. Both tracks have been carefully selected for their sound and narrative qualities, also taking in consideration the blend between acoustic and electronic elements.

The album’s titles reveal an additional interpretation to the music, being inspired by two prehistoric ancestors who lived in caves during the same period of early mankind.

About Tasos Stamou
Electroacoustic music composer and performer, alternative electronic music instrument maker, tutor and sound technologist.

During a decade of sound performances and recordings, Tasos Stamou has developed a unique style of live electroacoustic composition. Long and continuous pieces are created on stage or in the studio using a “portable electroacoustic music studio”. His gear consists of acoustic (prepared zither, reeds, recorders, objects) and electronic instruments (handmade electronics, modular synthesizer systems and live processed feedback loops). Based on sustained tonal textures and free improvised instrumental solos, his live compositions create a particular and unique atmosphere of ritual noise.

He is currently leading a workshop series exploring circuit bending & hardware hacking for experimental sound production.

Tasos Stamou has an eclectic body of recorded work, released by exploratory music labels (Moving Furniture, Lal Lal Lal, Linear Obsessional Recordings, Orila, Triple Bath, Kukuruku Recordings, Absurd, Coherent States).

He has performed across Europe and the U.S. in festivals and venues for innovative sound (Incubate Festival, Cafe OTO in London, Supernormal Festival, BENT Festival New York, Cave 12 in Geneva, Sounds of the Underground Festival, Ausland in Berlin, CologneOFF Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, and many more). Although mainly a solo performer and recording artist, he frequently collaborates with other sound artists, improvisers and experimentalists (such as Adam Bohman, Alan Wilkinson, London Improvisers Orchestra, Mike Cooper, Andrea Parkins, Kuupuu & Lau Nau, Terry Day, Adachi Tomomi, Ilan Manouach, Ignaz Schick, Magda Mayas, Arma Agharta, Thodoris Ziarkas, etc.) at various venues and festivals for innovative music.

Although his music is inspired by different contemporary and traditional genres (free improvised music, musique concrète, noise & drone, folklore and ritual/tribal music) his main influence is personal states and experiences of the sonic environment, such as early childhood memories (“Infant”, 2007), the loss of a beloved person (“The return of the long lost one”, 2013) or the experience of a rural festivity (“Koura”, 2016).

Tasos is also developing a series of visual art; showing his work at occasional exhibitions/installation shows and illustrating media.
