A granary of processed instrumental and electronic sounds, field recordings, rock formations, plants and animals unfold an abstract audiovisual experience. Go back to hiding in the shadows questions the relationship between the digital and the organic.
The source of information – sounds, images and videos – were recorded and taken around the Troodos mountains in Cyprus island, region where Pandelis grew up. He has created custom-made software to process the raw material with algorithms, creating multiple configurations of image and sound.
The compositions also seek to explore the idea of territory and identity as mutually defining forces whose interactions cannot be simplified or easily represented.
This project was presented as a live AV performance in many festivals in Europe and shaped a complete album released in April 11th, 2019, in Berlin, Germany.
