Mecha/Orga

Mecha/Orga is the project of Yiorgis Sakellariou. Having a background in classical and traditional music, he started exploring experimental sound in 2003. He has performed in more than 90 concerts and festivals in Greece and abroad and has released a considerable bulk of his works. He has delivered lectures in seminars on music with computers and has created soundtracks for short films and theatrical performances. He is a member of the Centre for Contemporary Music Research (Kentro Sinchronis Mousikis Erevnas), Athens, and of the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association (HELMCA). He is responsible for the net label "Echomusic". His interests focus on digital processing of environmental recordings. His sound box includes an array of sounds from the buzzing of refrigerators to waterfalls and from locomotives to insects. During his performances, he always plays in absolute darkness, pursuing an intense audio experience.
