Music From The Early Robotic Societies Of The Basin

A 6 track ambient album (30m 39s) — released February 2nd 2018 on The Tapeworm

This project imagines a futuristic scenario – of a post-human society in the Athenian basin and of its music. Robots are reminded of the fundamental joys of playing, singing and dancing with these eight channel cassette recordings, inspired by Greece's complex cultural traditions and associations with Asia and Africa.
