Παναγιώτης Μηνά [pan] (CY)
Pan has been experimenting with non-musical techniques such as chanting phrases of the zeitgeist and lying to the audience since 1995. With his avant-punk band 'spoko' he used a megaphone to recite the indications of antidepressants on live television while an out of tune / out of sync guitar riff was uttering. At a warehouse ('konteiner') he was improvise-typing and projecting it on a wall, as the heavily distorted drone sounds from 5 speakers were playing to an audience with ear plugs.
He recently produced a diy hip hop music video which he presented in Belgrade and composed music for the choreography piece "orfeas" performed at 'park in progress Nicosia'.
Pan uses an array of physical and electronic instruments such as guitars, sequencers and synthesizers to assemble samples, frequencies and singing, into 'songs'.
