“Whispers, voices, outcries...
The volume gradually increases and it finally knocks on your door. Will you open?”
The theme-based project / album "electron" [ἤλεκτρον – ḗlektron] is the 5th solo album by Anna Stereopoulou. The work is inspired -on a scientific basis- by the structure and function of the Human Ear & the Balance of Body, whilst its main aim is the flow of the inner energy of the audience-spectators, having as parallel source of inspiration the elements of Water & Electric Spark / Power, as well as those of Sound & Light (i.e. Cochlea’s & Labyrinth’s function – Inner Ear).
With Piano as its core instrument, frequently enriched with Electronic rhythms – ambiance and Poetry, the music is influenced by various genres -such as Musique Concrète, Drum’n’Bass, Classical, Jazz, Dubstep, Fado, Techno and other- and draw the course into a labyrinth, which gradually becomes and unfolds more and more bright, via its visual translation.
“A mind game that aims to reach the moment you discover the key within your own hand..!”
