Athanasios Argianas

Born 1976 in Athens, GR
Lives and works in London, UK

Also a conservatory trained musician, Athanasios Argianas explores the possibilities and limitations of transferring structures of languages between media. Elements of one language are separated and used to form the base for another. Argianas has been known to reference electronic instruments from the early 20th century, such as the theremin and the ondes martenot, experimental music and compositional methods from the 1960s, concrete poetry, the Constructivism of Naum Gabo, and even Duchamp’s Machine Optique (1920) and its circular deployment of language.
