Dimitri Vassilakis - George Kontrafouris Trio

Dimitri Vassilakis
"Jazz imporovisation and artificial intelligence"

What can artificial intelligence and jazz music have in common? At first glance, none. Dimitri Vassilakis together with the guitarist Tilemachos Moussas show us what they might be connected, through a subversive meeting of technology and music with the title "Jazz improvisation and artificial intelligence". The internationally acclaimed saxophonist, who teaches in the postgraduate program "Music, Technology and Contemporary Practices" of the Department of Music Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA), and his collaborator, will focus on approaching jazz improvisation as a narrative in relation to language, poetry and prose. At the same time, they will highlight the applications of improvisation in artificial intelligence and natural language processing systems.

Stathis Anninos & Obradovic-Tixier Duo

Stathis Anninos

Through the rich sounds of a piano and based on original compositions as well as favorite sounds from a variety of musical genres, Stathis Anninos creates a programme full of affinities and contrasts, highlighting a multifaceted musical personality. The flow of the music comes from the expressive freedom that distinguishes him, as well as his love for the diverse tradition of the piano, which extends from classical music to his favorite jazz pianists (and beyond), covering a range that spans his musical origins which harmoniously complement each other.

Obradovic-Tixier Duo

Obradovic-Tixier Duo is the combination of French pianist David Tixier and Croatian drummer Lada Obradovic. The duo produce a contemporary and stylish sound blending acoustic and electronic instruments. A soft yet striking performance where David's sophisticated harmonies and lyrical drama interweave with Lada's polyrhythms. Together, the pair weave a captivating tale.

Menios Gounaris Trio & Spiral Trio

Menios Gounaris Trio

Pianist and composer Menios Gounaris and his trio present the artist's new album "Set in motion". A work inspired and recorded entirely during the pandemic, which, as the title suggests, tries to capture the need for action and creation.

Spiral Trio

Spiral Trio was formed in 2012 by Spyros Manesis, Arion Gyftakis and Anastasis Gouliaris.

It is noteworthy to point out the continuous and improvisational interplay between the band members. The trio's performance will be based mainly on their new album "Broken Blue".
