PLANO is the 6th solo album by Athens-based composer /pianist /reseacher Anna Stereopoulou.
Its music consists of one (1) track of 52min30sec, however the listener is welcome to follow the music also through «2 Chapters ~ 5 Sections», which compose this Audio Film, as characterised by its creator. Different Music styles, such as Modern Classical, Electronica / Electro-Acoustic, Counterpoint, Minimalism, Musique Concrète, and other, performed by Anna Stereopoulou, as well as by international artists, build the soundtrack of the same-titled audio-visual work of the artist.
Its current and most developed form is focusing on the re-activation of Senses by exploring the spatial representation and perception of Silence as Duration, in relation to the preservation of (Human) Nature & Memory, within a Technology-driven Society. PLANO is offering an Artistic format of (self-)psychoanalysis, or, else, an hypnagogic medium – vehicle which creates the sense of a greater Cosmos from the one we usually focus on.
