«Anna Stereopoulou & David Mata – Live in Athens» is the Live Recording of the debut joint concert of the two artists. The event took place on Thursday, 13th of September 2018, at 9pm, at 'Zp87' venue, in Athens (Greece) with the kind support of 'Insituto Cervantes de Atenas'.
Oneiric sound-scapes, delicate synths and passionate passages, form a contemplative ambiance, inspired by the Athenian landscapes and hidden corners, as walked through during David's first visit to the Greek capital, and as later welcomed by Anna's memories. But above all, a voyage through a continuous pulse rotation, between Madrid and Athens, between Earth and Space.
The concert -of 82 minutes in Total Length- is based on Live Improvisation between Piano, Electronic and Processed Objects, creating an improvised dialogue between Stereopoulou‘s Pianistic and Key 'weaving' and Erissoma‘s Live Electronics‘ 'paintings'. Far from being a conceptual work in its background, the Live Development proposes that the listener oneself is the one who constructs their own narration depending on the emotional state and the moment in which it produces (active and emotional) Listening.
The current collaboration between David Mata / Erissoma and Anna Stereopoulou is the fruit of their long term artistic relationship, seeking an innovative path of co-creation, based on both trust and freedom. Their collaborative work is greatly inspired by musical 'meetings' such as the art of Ryuichi Sakamoto with Fennesz / Taylor Deupree / Alva Noto, Murcof, Maryanne Amacher, Pink Floyd, Stavros Lantsias, and it aims to the promotion and development of the Modern Classical, Electronica and Contemporary Jazz genres, yet expressed through the prism of the two artists' unique 'sound', as well as by their common cultural Mediterranean origins.
