K. BHTA and Nikko Patrelakis are coming to GRis Festival presenting their exceptionally successful electronic project Neapoly. It is an audiovisual work with new, jointly created electronic music and original videos, a journey of exploration and experimentation across electronica and its innumerable sounds and forms.

Neapoly, a “new city”, a new meeting point, is the result of two years of experimentation, recordings, and filming for a common dream of two musical fellow travelers: to share their mutual love for electronic music.

The videos accompanying the performance are a poetic wandering across Greece, an exciting road movie running through this country’s nature and cities, charting its mountains, the sky and the sea, its people and their everyday life.

In Neapoly, K. BHTA and Nikko Patrelakis explore electronic music starting from its roots, both as form and as style. The minimalistic repetition of arpeggiators, the design of the artificial timbres from the very beginning, as well as the use of analogue sources and processors form the base of Neapoly’s sonic reality. At the same time, the creators turn their gaze to the 70s and 80s, seeking the original musical and aesthetical references of electronica.

This concert is co-organized with Columbia University's Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI) and Athens Global Center.
