Koura

by Tasos Stamou

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Our shown prices are without VAT. Final price is calculated at checkout.

    Track 1: Multitrack recording of sustained tones using a ‘Jubel Töne’ zither and additional
    live electronic effect processing.
    Track 2: Multitrack recording of sustained tones using a ‘Hohner Organetta’ chord organ
    and additional live electronic effect processing.

    Both tracks are part of a composition series based on sustained, multilayered recordings
    of solo acoustic instruments. The instruments have been performed with extended techniques and additional live electronic “extensions” (looping feedbacks & down-sampling, pitch shifting, reverberation and oscillators).

    ‘Koura’ is a traditional sheep shearing ceremonial custom, still performed in rural Crete.
    Every June, local farmers invite a group of close friends and relatives to join this full-day
    annual festivity dedicated to the sheep.
    A major feast in late evening finalizes a hard day of commune work.

    Recorded at the ‘Owl Studio’, London, 2016.
    Special thanks to Antonis, Tamara, Sietse.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Koura via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
