This is my new mixcloud, featuring some songs that I am listening to when I am editing films late in these quiet nights. It’s the second podcast I put together, and this time I chose a bit of American Beauty, a bit of the magicians, and a bit of harp. I hope you enjoy the sounds!
(This is a photo of the Empire State Building that I captured in today’s foggy evening. More will follow soon in a calendar collection of my impressions of NYC.)
My beautifully talented friend León will be performing live at Six D.O.G.S in Athens, on the 12th of April. This is the poster of the event -photo by me, and more info here.
‘Somewhere’ is an ongoing project of mine, with soundscapes in the place of impossible images. I will soon tell you more about it as I will publish it in a new page in the website by the end of March. In the meantime though, I suggest you explore this vivid selection of soundworks, created and curated by the ICA- I discovered it after my visit there yesterday and I think it’s a great project and resource.
I’ve just finalised the editing of the photographs from my recent shoot with Leon in London and these are some images from that day that I can share in advance, featuring stylist Chelsey Clarke, MUA Amrit Preet, and studio Wilson, amongst Leon and myself. Small but sweet team, thank you all.
I’ve just created this diptych. The photograph is from my recent shoot with my brightly talented friend, Leon, in London- and I guess I will be able to share more from that day soon.
My friend Hercules, before he gets the stage.

Tomorrow we will be releasing the film documentary of Nikos Erinakis und die Haken, that hopes to stand as a visual poem on the wild world that they create through music and words. It is called “Dark love of a Wild Generation” and it is almost an hour long- the longest film I ‘ve created yet.
Meanwhile, above you can see the first part that we had published earlier this year- a short one that follows them on their preparations of their studio recordings in Athens, GR. I hope you enjoy it -more tomorrow.
Here is another film still from Nikos Erinakis und die Haken film that is on the way. It will be released shortly, in tune with their upcoming gig in Athens. In the meantime, this is their new website, which also features some of the visuals that we have created together:
The music is getting wilder and wilder.
