WORKS

Kāma

for ensemble · 2017

Barley porridge, or a crust of barley bread, and water do not make a very cheerful diet, but nothing gives one keener pleasure than the ability to derive pleasure even from that.
Seneca

Fata Morgana

120 whistled microtones (fixed media) · 2016

A mirage seen during hot days in desert, land or sea, Fata Morgana distorts the objects on the horizon, often to such extent that they become completely unrecognisable.

Michalis Paraskakis, whistling

Φλοιός / Cortex

for piano piano · 2016

The lateral intraparietal cortex of the brain is responsible for our perception of time, regulating the ability of speaking or playing an instrument. “Cortex” is regulating and deregulating the rhythm and speed of a constantly moving “melodic speech”.

Terpnon

for positive organ and 5 players · 2013

The keyboardist holds down static drone chords. The rest four are fluctuating the drones by fine tuning the tubes of the organ to produce variable frequency beatings in several layers. The result is an ode to frequency beating and its beauty.

Spring Festival 2013, The Hague [NL]

Skostok

for ensemble · 2015

Skostok is the name of an ancient king of the Odrysians. We know he existed only from a few brass coins with laureate Apollo and an equestrian with the inscription ‘SKOSTOK’.
