Anastasios Karaiskos "Our Fate is Sealed"
Combination of sounds, music genres in an electroacoustic landscape can be a fascinating journey both for the composer and for the audience. “Our fate is sealed” is the sustainable journey of life constructed and deconstructed through sounds and emotions.

Theodoros Lotis "Voices"
Voices of a protolanguage, voices of instinct reactions, voices that transmit instinctive expression, voices of humans and birds and frogs and voices of fear, surprise, intimacy, intrusion, complaisance, ignorance, caress. Voices uses as its primal material the voice of the director and musician Giorgos Nikopoulos from his film The Ox (recorgings: Giorgos Gargalas) and dance/body sequence recordings by Christina Mertzani, Enangelos Poulinas and Evangelia Randou. I want to thank them all for their expressivity and body sweat. Other sounds used are voice recordings (Agnese Banti), violin (Nikolas Anastasiou), clarinet (Esther Lamneck), percussion (Giorgos Stavridis). I also thank all my students who helped with the recordings. Voices is commissioned by the artistic research project Embodied Gestures (PEEK AR-399) funded by FWF Austria and had its premiere at the Echoes Around Me Festival 2020 in Vienna. Thanks to Thomas Gorbach and Enrique Tomás for initiating the commission.
