Yiorgis Sakellariou - Diapsalmata: A Collection Of Short Works

Yiorgis Sakellariou has pulled from the infinite sound pallet. A difficult endeavor much akin to a chef with a fully stocked gourmet pantry. The ability to use too much or wildly unfamiliar is very easily crossed. Reading the ingredients makes the dish sound exotic and mouth watering, but the taste is overwhelming. Yiorgis Sakellariou has not taken this path. Sound sources are very recognizable, signals, chants, insects, train stations and watermills to name a few. These are part of every day life for many people. On their own, any of these attributes can be overwhelming and caustic. How will this composition feel? What is Yiorgis Sakellariou's purpose? Listen through Diapsalmata: A Collection Of Short Works, and then the following description may connect.

An aural painting for your consciousness. Brush strokes dissolving, relinquishing their collective images in sonic euphoria and sighs. The scene dissipates leaving faint images unmasked on the sonic canvas. These exposed bones are gradually covered up by eroding factors on sound itself. Common noises, repeated in countless successions, filling the fabric life is accustomed to. Infiltrating our thoughts until each listener is in a nostalgic coma. Subdued by sounds categorized as the droning ambiance called every day existence. Diapsalmata: A Collection Of Short Works changes our perceptive receptors. Familiar is dismantled, soothing white noise changing alkalinity, revealing red or blue on the litmus paper. Yiorgis Sakellariou is too experienced to leave listeners at ends of the spectrum. His composition feels like the world we live in, yet purposefully shifting slightly out of phase. Resulting in a sonic nudge, a gentle push to help us understand the complexities of the world we all try to simplify.

Released on the Belgium label Tanuki Records only ten days ago. Probably in the fifty to seventy copy realm from past release quantities, but this is uncertain. Many Tanuki Records releases are sold out, so do not push Yiorgis Sakellariou's composition off for too long.
