Lefteris Veniadis /
Hovering – flying – flight – a journey up above, high, to the sky!
In Aristophanes’s comedy Peace, Trygaeus rides a beetle and soars heavenwards to speak to the gods. Experimental musical instruments and constructions inspired by simple everyday object offer a different dimension to this flight as they paint with colorful sounds the emotions it evokes. The original sounds thus produced create a new musical world which excites our young listeners’ imagination and demonstrates that music is omnipresent and can be created at any given place or time.
Composition/acting: Lefteris Veniadis & Vocals/mezzo soprano: Anna Pagkalou | Experimental musical construction: Stefan Roszak | Percussions: Alexandros Giovanos | Lights: Melina Mascha
