After creating a live performance and audio-visual installation as artists in residence at Robert Wilson’s The Watermill Center, composer Stavros Gasparatos, actress-performer Serafita Grigoriadou and I, came back together to create this music video trilogy for Stavros’ new release.
“Rage Park” is out on limited edition solid white/black vinyl, CD and digital album on May 20th via Inner Ear Records. Pre-order here.
What would happen if you let yourself lose control, break out, without any repercussions? The moment that we release previously repressed emotions is the core of the music performance “Rage Park” of composer and sound artist Stavros Gasparatos. “Rage Park” draws on pent-up rage and the need to express this rage and liberate oneself. It explores the thin line separating calmness and rage, inviting the audience to a positively liberating experience.
One year after the performance/installation at the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, the music of “Rage Park” is released for the first time. The album consists of 7 instrumental tracks recorded live on Venue B in July 2018 and featuring the musicians: Anastasis Mysirlis (cello), Mihalis Vrettas (violin), Pericles Timplalexis (violin), Panos Tsigos (piano, electronics), Stavros Gasparatos (piano, percussion, electronics). The album artwork is based on the work Spiked-Wire Frieze of the Greek artist Nikos Sepetzoglou.
