Asking how it is that the gaze of technology has the potential to change the way we see ourselves? Sound artist Tasos Stamou will present two exploratory music Orchestras incorporating hacked, DIY and handmade instruments. ?Circuit Bending Orchestra' and ?Hackoustic Orchestra' will perform a series of open compositions and conducted improvisations, placed outside the usual stage arrangement in our bar.
