Expanded Radio: Radio WORM comes out from behind the glass for live gigs and special events with our regular radio makers and their guests, broadcast directly from inside the #Wunderbar. Grab a drink and join us in the foyer, or tune in online. Always free!
This week, we invite Sound Studio residents Panos Ghikas and Yannis Patoukas for an Expanded Radio session. Panos and Yannis will perform live during the broadcast and then discuss their residency at WORM studio, focusing on their compositional approaches in the studio and their collaboration.
Panos Ghikas is a London-based composer, improviser and producer. His output encompasses concert music, free improvisation, interdisciplinary collaborations in digital media, film music and pop production. He is a member of surrealist post-pop band The Chap and runs Migro Records. His work features in over 60 releases and has been performed and broadcast internationally.
Yannis Patoukas is a musicologist, electroacoustic composer and improviser currently based in Rotterdam (NL). In his music, he explores the different creative possibilities found at the intersections between experimental rock music of the 1960s and 1970s and electroacoustic music; with regard to studio practices and production techniques. When inside a recording studio, he usually follows a more improvisational workflow; welcoming mistakes, trusting random or open processes and always making the most of the physicality of any device in the vicinity. He is attracted by the “technical limitations” found in analogue technology and enjoys the performability of tape machines, mixing desks and voltage-controlled modular systems alongside other devices or instruments.
