Yorgos Dimitriadis is a Berlin based percussionist, improviser, active in the fields of improvised music and contemporary jazz. In his original solo work he uses drums, cymbals and microphones to compose in real time sonic landscapes, with the emphasis in timbre, sound color and long durations. Since 2006 he works and lives in Berlin, connecting with the international improvisers scene and participating in different groups and projects: from solo performances to appearances with the 25 piece orchestra BerIO. Dimitriadis is a founding member of among others: GRIX, GLUE and FABRIC trios. He has performed in festivals and concert series throughout Europe, as a soloist and in collaboration with an array of renowned international artists like Achim Kaufmann, Tobias Delius, Clayton Thomas, Axel Dörner, Ignaz Schick, Andrea Parkins, Audrey Chen, Hilary Jeffery, Robin Hayward, Paul Dunmall, Tristan Honsinger, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Conny and Matthias Bauer, Amir ElSaffar. After having studied drums at the New Conservatory Thessaloniki, Greece, Dimitriadis moved to Boston, U.S.A. to study with Alan Dawson and Bob Moses. After returning to Europe, in 1994 he was offered a two-year residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris from the Greek Ministry of Culture. For the next twelve years Dimitriadis was an active member of the Paris jazz and improvised music scene, playing locally as well as participating in festivals world wide.
Andrea Parkins is a sound artist, composer and electro-multi-instrumentalist who also makes/arranges objects and images. Known especially for her dynamic timberal explorations on the electric accordion and inventive use of customized sound processing, she wields a sonic language that is both fractured and fluid – releasing awkward electronic disruptions, concretized sampling and explosive feedback into the rising flow of her electric accordion’s sonority. Parkins performs internationally as a solo artist, and has collaborated with Nels Cline, Fred Frith, Thomas Lehn, Otomo Yoshihide, and ROVA Saxophone Quartet, among many others. She also creates sound art works, and compositions for solo and ensemble instruments. Her audio works and performances have been presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Kitchen, and Experimental Intermedia, among other contemporary ar/t/multimedia venues, and she has collaborated in this context with sound artists Michael J. Schumacher, Stephen Vitiello, Anne Wellmer, and others. Parkins appears on more than 50 recordings on labels including Hatology, Cryptogramophone, and Atavistic.
