Sonic Collective Athenian Futurism

Sonic Collective Athenian Futurism

Christos Chrondopoulos explores the cross-section of traditional Greek music and artificial intelligence throughout his critically acclaimed albums and now on Athenian Futurism. Chrondopoulos imagines the sci-fi scenario of spiritual machines questioning the meaning of music. “They discover the authentic musical traditions of the Athenian Basin, where Greece stands at a crossroads, and empty their lyrics of all meaning, celebrating the immediacy of musical expression.” Using applied speech synthesis, Chrondopoulos explores the fundamental philosophical question of language while grounding this experimental collection of sounds with intuitive rhythms and a versatile electroacoustic sound palette. 

Produced by Christos Chrondopoulos with additional contributions by Gino Robair.
