Kukuruku #3: Tasos Stamou & Adam Bohman + Leafcutter John + Mecha / Orga
A recent collaboration between the sound experimentalists consisting of both musicians’ passionate relation to found objects and recycled material treated as instruments.
Devoted solo performers of free improvised music, also members of the London Improvisers Orchestra, Tasos Stamou (modified electronics, prepared zither, found violin) and Adam Bohman (amplified objects and prepared violin) create layers of “instant” musique concrète which balances between narrative structures and textural noises, much like the sonic ambience of a crowded Sunday car boot sale market. Their sound explores the possibilities of expression through means of irregular practices and modified lo-fi equipment.
Adam Bohman is well known to the avant-garde and the free improvised British music scene (also as a member of the Bohman Brothers, Morphogeneses etc) for his unique solo achievements over objects and amplified-table techniques.
Tasos Stamou is a (non academic) electroacoustic music composer and a performer of free improvised music, an instrument designer and circuit bender. He has been performing and recording in solo and collaborative projects using several different arrangements of handmade electronics and electroacoustic arrangements.

Leafcutter John creates an intricate, delicate & surprising mix of acoustic instruments, songwriting & electronica. Field recordings from around the world mix with hauntingly down-to-earth vocals in a seamless mix. He was nominated (with Polar Bear) for a Mercury Award back in 2005.

Mecha/Orga is the project and recording name of sound artist Yiorgis Sakellariou. Since 2003, he has been active internationally being responsible for solo albums, having composed music for short films and theatrical performances, leading workshops and ceaselessly performing his music around the globe. He is currently attending the sound art postgraduate degree programme at the LCC, London.
His practice is founded on the digital manipulation of environmental recordings. His palette of sounds is all encompassing; from vibrating rail-tracks to refrigerators' static, and from noisy waterfalls to the humming of insects. He mostly performs in absolute darkness, fostering an all-inclusive and profoundly submerging sonic experience.
Yiorgis Sakellariou is a member of the Athenian Contemporary Music Research Centre and the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association.
Since 2004 he has curated the label Echomusic.
