Caveman (LP, Moving Furniture, 2017)

This album is a representative sample of Tasos Stamou’s live sound. Both tracks are complete extracts of free improvised solo performances using his portable electroacoustic music studio.
Both tracks have been carefully selected for their sound and narrative qualities, also taking in consideration the blend between acoustic and electronic elements.

Koura (CD, Moving Furniture, 2016)

Both tracks in this album are parts of a composition series based on sustained, multitrack recordings of solo acoustic instruments (zither and chord organ here).
The instruments have been performed with extended techniques and with additional live electronic “extensions” (looping feedbacks & downsampling, pitch shifting, reverberation and oscillators).

A Trilogy by Lal Lal Lal Records
(3 x CS, 2015-16)

A sonic-fairytale trilogy by Finnish cassette label “Lal Lal Lal”.
The tracks have been created with a combination of live recorded material and studio additions (modular synthesizer). Each piece follows an abstract narrative, based on rough electronics and tribal music connotations. Instrumentation is quite eclectic, varying from handmade electronics to objects and souvenir instruments.

A Trilogy by Orila Records
(3 x 3"CD, 2013-14)

Three EPs made for Orila Records are assembling a variety of micro-tracks from one year's recordings with a portable four-track recorder. All compositions were recorded in between different environments and sometimes literally on the road using handheld electronics, objects, voice and other materials found at the spot.

Objects #1

Infant
(CD, Absurd, 2007)

First released recording launching a series of compositions and improvisations made strictly with toy instruments and musical toys.
Hacked, modified or plain, these instruments define the aesthetics and structure of this album. The result is a dreamy soundscape of bewitched childhood memories and obscure electronica.
