In the meantime, here is a taste of our first single, 'Unrequited'.

Enjoy!




Growing up in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s, I was heavily exposed to the sound of the synthesizer and was dreaming of ways to incorporate it in my music.

But, how could that be possible, being a vibraphone player?


When I started experimenting with the Pearl EM1 MalletStation in summer 2018, I realized that this may be the vehicle I needed, to connect me with my teen aspiration: to combine the digital sound with the gorgeous sound of vibes.

Combining e-vibes and vibes is yet further evidence that technology in music is here to stay.

There are endless ways forward and we are voyagers on an exciting journey; let’s dive in and have fun with it!



Sonic Convergence

I am excited to be part of the 2022 Athens Epidaurus Festival, presenting Sonic Convergence, together with world class musicians I look up to and respect! This project brings us together to bridge our different backgrounds and allows us to:

  • create music that is not trapped in artistic silos nor characterized as a particular genre,

  • experience a true learning experience ourselves, through the collaboration and reconciliation of many different elements,

  • develop a musical language that transcends musical categories, instilling messages of social unity through the cultural diversity that music brings

We aspire to create sound convergence and a musical consensus well beyond the limits of our individual specializations and the prejudices and stereotypes that these typically create. We believe that collectively we possess the tools to achieve it substantially, not only for ourselves, but – above all – for a multicultural audience!
