Konstantinos Vita - "2" (2006)

Here’s the first of a bunch of fine Greek & Turkish albums kindly offered by JTC from Turkey. Many thanx!

The Greek composer, painter and videoartist Konstantinos Vita (also known as Konstantinos Beta and K Bhta) was born in Melbourne, Australia, where he studied painting and history of art. Then he moved to Athens, where he studied graphic design and in 1992 was one of the founder members of Greece’s finest electronic group, Stereo Nova. In 1996, after five albums, he disbanded the group to follow a solo career. He has written music for film, theatre and dance productions, covered songs by Manos Hadzidakis (Transformations, 2003) and exhibited his paintings and videos (Soundscapes, 2005). Striking a near-perfect balance between hard-core electronica and emotive lyricism, between introspection and the pulse of city life he also composed the music for Dimitris Papaioannou’s (the acclaimed Olympic Ceremonies art director) enormously successful production “2”, winning over a broader public and earning himself his first gold record.

Konstantinos Vita creates sensitive, exhilarating soundscapes that can just as easily familiarize us poetically with the dizzying realities of contemporary life as usher us into the time and space of dreams. […] He has never stopped experimenting with the emotion of violence and the violence of emotion. (Partly based on this review)
