Epavlis Pavlakis- Christos Laskaris

It is strange and haunting to listen to the Epavlis Pavlakis record “Christos Laskaris.” Droning tone poems mixed with the actually audio of ten poems by Christos Laskaris a now deceased Greek poet weave a gentle voice against stark minimalist rhythms and sounds. There is very little information on the poet and because I don’t speak the language it is hard to discern what the meaning is from moment to moment but the music seems to speak for the words in a subtle interaction between man and machine. It is both serene and horrifying as if the man is speaking to the music and not the listener in a dialogue that clashes an old world with the technology of a new world. It is a beautiful and engrossing work that you would expect to hear in a gallery or museum as a sound installation of some shape or another but it is just as great spinning on the turntable. Granny Records has  pressed the LP on clear vinyl housed in a pvc sleeve and it is limited to 300 copies. 
Good Luck Mr. Gorsky

Good Luck Mr. Gorsky is a trio that has been around for nearly a decade experimenting with analog equipment, field recordings and various other sources of sound generating devices. Their latest release is a live recording from a 2011 performance in Athens and is an improvisation of minimal avant garde music. Insects buzz, birds chirp and synthesizers throb and hum. The music is presented in side long tracks pressed into black vinyl and also housed in a pvc sleeve, limited to 300 copies. The addition of a trumpet gives the music a Miles Davis “Bitches Brew” vibe of free jazz experimentation and glockenspiel breathes life into a very electronic sounding environment. These organic elements greatly enhance the listening experience. It is clear this trio have a great ear for crafting pleasant soundscapes. To often experimental music gets bogged down into unbearable sonic territory that is harsh and challenging to enjoy. Good Luck Mr. Gorsky avoids the harshness of free jazz and noise music on and while they are not ambient music per say they create a thoroughly enjoyable and calming listening experience on side A of the record. The B side is a much more upfront and rhythmic affair that allows for a little less open space and the atmosphere is a bit more claustrophobic. The intricate layers and juxtapositions of sounds will warrant many repeat listens. I would highly recommend both of these new releases from Granny Records even if you have to order them from Greece.

Out of the Dirt and onto the Paper: Artifact Illustration
“You can’t email an artifact,” says Kathleen Rowland. “But through illustration, I can put an object in the hands of countless people.”
Kathleen, a scientific illustrator, was invited to spend a morning with the Time Team America Field School in Woodward, Oklahoma to demonstrate her craft, which, she emphasized, is not expressive art. “Artists want to express themselves. Illustration really is about the object.”

Ένα τραγούδι για τον πολιτισμό!
Οι εργαζόμενοι στον πολιτισμό διαμαρτύρονται και διεκδικούν με… πολιτισμό. Έτσι, την Τρίτη 2 Απριλίου, ο Ενιαίος Σύλλογος Υπαλλήλων ΥΠΠΟ οργανώνει ανοιχτή καλλιτεχνική εκδήλωση διαμαρτυρίας στην πλατεία Κλαυθμώνος προκειμένου να ενημερώσει τους πολίτες για τα κεντρικά του αιτήματα, δηλαδή την προστασία της πολιτιστικής κληρονομιάς, την ενίσχυση της καλλιτεχνικής δημιουργίας, την αυτονομία του υπουργείου Πολιτισμού και βέβαια για καμιά θέση εργασίας χαμένη στον πολιτισμό.
Η εκδήλωση θα ξεκινήσει στις 6 το απόγευμα με τσαμπουνοσύναξη και άλλα καλλιτεχνικά δρώμενα και στις 7 μ.μ. θα ακολουθήσει συναυλία στην οποία με τις μέχρι τώρα συμμετοχές θα τραγουδήσουν οι: Καλλιόπη Βέττα, Σπύρος Γραμμένος, Elektrobalkana, Encardia, Ματούλα Ζαμάνη, Χρήστος Θηβαίος, Καίτη Κουλιά, Δημήτρης Κώτσικας, Μάρθα Μαυροειδή, Πάνος Μουζουράκης, Νίκος Οικονομίδης, Ορφέας Περίδης, Πολυφωνικό συγκρότημα Μουσείου Λαϊκών Μουσικών Οργάνων, Θέμος Σκανδάμης, ΓΚastΑΡbeitΕΡ και Cart Postal.
Όπως επισημαίνει ο Ενιαίος Σύλλογος Υπαλλήλων σε ανακοίνωσή του, “η ανασύσταση του υπουργείου Πολιτισμού ως αυτόνομου υπουργείου, με αυτοτελείς διοικητικές και οικονομικές υπηρεσίες, με διαφύλαξη όλων των αρμοδιοτήτων και όλων των θέσεων εργασίας, με χρηματοδότηση και επαρκή στελέχωση, δεν είναι ένα συντεχνιακό αίτημα. Είναι η προϋπόθεση για την υλοποίηση μιας κοινωνικής αναγκαιότητας: της προστασίας και ανάδειξης της πολιτιστικής κληρονομιάς και της στήριξης της σύγχρονης καλλιτεχνικής δημιουργίας”.
