PROGRAM / BIG BANG ATHENS 2019
Friday 24 May 2019 - Sunday 26 May 2019
Nektarios Pappas & Zafos Xagoraris /
If silence is golden, what are sounds? Are they small diamonds? Our young friends explore the park in Dourgouti, spot melodies, rhythms and noises of the city and make their own map of small sound treasures. Zafos Xagoraris’ sound Dismantling Tools are a valuable aid in this endeavour (part of the OCC educational programmes, 2017-18). Magical microphones audit the city, collect its sounds and after mixing them well in our sound mixer, we amplify them with our directional loudspeakers and share our treasures with the world.
Hear ye, hear ye!
