Architecture is the aesthetic design of spaces, buildings, structures,…the arrangement of volumes within space.
Architecture opts to combine aesthetics with practicality …
Art with robust construction…
Aesthetics is a matter of taste and mode of expression, robustness a matter of technical knowledge and delivery.
Aural architecture is all about a wisely selected bunch of background sounds to the life of the listener.
Throw your arms around imagination and quality!
INSTALLATION # 86
6th November 2016
The rain that never comes. The rain that passes by, refreshes and replenishes the senses, like the piercing odour of freshly watered soil and grass. Unsurpassed hair-raising sensations that when accompanied with the right kind of music create an engraving of unsurpassed sorts, a seal of self celebrating and other creatures directed love.
- Kenny Freq.
Athens city calling all indie kids from the past to the future tense! Sweet mellow deeds of island breeze and urban hymns! Kenny Freq. is a wild bunch of (the always) modern pop music craftsmen. They come from a long line of bands connected to the depths of the Athenian underground history and beyond and they celebrate 1 year of existence with some new material of urban bohemian awesomeness!
One off The Strokes family, the modern times Beatles, as I extravagantly filter their evolution in terms of influence and aural outcome long time now.
- Blood Orange
Dance, tunes and sweat altogether in one steady outcome of splendid aural and visual gems again and again. 2016 marks the return of Devonté “Dev” Hynes with new album Freetown Sound.
- Grace Jones
An angel of iconoclastic sense of fashion and visual conception and communication, Jamaican Grace Jones continues to amaze and inspire. Her last album is Hurricane of 2008, however we’re replaying to the repeat some aural gold from her earlier stuff, ageless as herself. She plays in Sao Paolo on November 18th.
- Slowly Rolling Camera
Created in Cardiff three years ago, by Dionne Bennett, Dave Stapleton, Elliot Bennett Deri Roberts. Influences: trip hop, jazz, soul, electronic music fused into a new and unique soundscape. Their eponymous debut was out on Edition Records in February 2014.

And the groovey genius saga continues!
