Anna Stereopoulou Oneirograph v.5.spindle  live

On June 11th, 2013, the Greek Public Broadcaster ERT was officially shutdown by the Greek government. Since then, the former ERT staff has been offering their skills and knowledge, trying to create and preserve a model of “independent and universal public service broadcasting in Greece”.
In the early hours of November 7th, 2013, riot police raided the headquarters of ERT the occupied public broadcaster.

The present performance of Anna Stereopoulou’s project “…oneirograph…v.5.spindle” was one of the events organised by ERT Open -July 14th, 2013 @ ERT headquarters’ courtyard- and it is dedicated to all technicians -sound/film- who offered her the opportunity to Speak her Voice worldwide, as well as to all former ERT employees who still fight for a free and independent expression and information, offering their services for free; to all people in Greece and worldwide who struggle against silencing, censorship, injustice, racism and any form of violence. To everyone fighting for the Dream!

The Sound of Taste

The Sound of Taste

An audio visual installation in association with Schwartz Flavour Shots, an innovative new
range of herb and spice blends locked in oil. What does flavour look like? How does it
sound? These are the questions that inspired herb and spice experts, Schwartz, to create
what they describe as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape’.

Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli
and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition.
Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high
speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.

The project bought together an eclectic collective of creative collaborators. DJ/Producer
MJ Cole was approached to translate the sensation of taste into a musical composition.
Film maker Chris Cairns and pyrotechnic designers, ‘Machine Shop’, then went to work
turning this sound into a physical scale.
