Tsev Is an Athens based musician and producer with a fast and frantic output of music, experimenting with an array of different musical fields and methods of creation. He has created very complex electronic dance music, contributed as a member of numerous rock projects local to Athens, and has experimented heavily with ambient music, both in the form of recorded music and live. A frequent element of many of his works is his use of microtonal tunings, creating rhythms or tensions from clashing tones and harmonies, often creating spatial experiences within the pieces as well. 'Tone Cloud', debuted today as part of our series, is a perfect example of his use of drone, microtonal tuning and pacing, leading to an abrasive yet hypnotic composition.
His one and only request is for the piece to be listened to loudly and ideally not while seated at the computer.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
