This is the first of the series, a single by LoAd” called ai3, which can be better described as a “study in digital melancholy”. You can find it on CDBaby as well as most online music stores and streaming services such as Spotify and iTunes.
Upcoming releases include:
e-soundscapes series (1-4)
four melodies and an algorithm
six pictures for children

This is a sample video of Reverse Modes, a new cross-genre project that we started last year. The footage is taken from our performance during Gottlieb-Dunkel festival in Berlin, 8 March 2014.
Reverse Modes is a genre-defying, groundbreaking new music project which originated in one of Europe’s creative hubs, the city of Berlin. Having started as a joint venture among a group of three expatriate musicians, reverse modes forms a dialogue between East and West, borrowing elements from both music traditions and blending them together in a masterful way, establishing a new language that seems to captivate audiences from both sides. The basic music material comes from the traditional music of South-Eastern Europe, especially Greece and Turkey. This material is further developed by healthy amounts of -including but not limited to- free improvisation, jazz, extended techniques and live electronics. Therefore, a metamorphosis occurs, one that, while cherishing its traditional roots, is not afraid of stepping into uncharted music territories.
Maria K. : Voice, Melodica, Percussion
Penelope G.: Violin

Achilleas S.: Flute, Saxophone, Percussion
My radio show Sound Collage which runs on INeedRadio (Mo. 20:00 – 21:00 German time) is having a summer break, along with the whole station. From what the people told me, they are planning to move to new premises, still in Berlin, so I am currently waiting to see how the thing develops. In the meantime I am having some thoughts as to continue the series as weekly instalments on Soundcloud or something similar. In any case I will keep you updated.
