Thuistezien 26 — 17.04.2020
A new sound piece purely written for Thuistezien #26. Saber Rider, although very low key in the Athens music scene, is one of the most interesting and unique music makers I have come across within it. She is very eclectic with the release of her own music and even more so with her live appearances, as she is more convinced it is music to be experienced in one’s own time and space.
Using the piano as the basis of most of her work, she creates layered textures combining acoustic piano, electronic keyboards, electronic toy instruments and the heavy manipulation of all of them to create a mix between very grounded and greatly aethereal music and soundscapes. She described the piece ‘Heaps’ as quite different from the rest of her work, not being piece of music, but more of a musical narrative.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
