Spen-D (GR)

Giannis Karathanos is a fourth year music student at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He has performed and recorded with various bands and artists in the city, a process which lead him to the creation of project "Spen-D". At Lefkosia Loop Festival he will be presenting original compositions based on guitar loops and effect pedals. In "Spen-D", his loops mainly result from the superimposition of rhythmic and melodic patterns, whose nature as independent elements transforms when they are combined with one another.

Stylistically, his music is a mixture of the different musical influences he has had over the years.
