Alkis Agathokleous Quintet presents EUPNEA, a project which introduces Alkis Agathokleous new compositions. The pieces originate from groundwork of his previous project, Kafeney Houseband, which was collaboration with Savvas Houvartas: distinctive melodies with strong transitions in dynamics, flexible grooves and a modal harmony that allows individual musicians to improvise creatively on the spot. Ney, an instrument with roots in Central Asia several thousand years ago, is the main axis; however, in this case, the Ney is not used as an oriental instrument, but rather as the 'voice' of the electric ensemble. Consequently, the result is a fusion of various genres of music: strong jazz influences, as well as ethnic and stoner stimulus, have always been a characteristic in Agathokleous body of work. Each experimental composition is a distinct album of images, since it progresses according to each musician’s intervention on stage. It is a colourful journey of sound that has several modules and combines East and West with unprecedented mastery.
