‘Plethora’ combines site-specific soundscape composition with improvisation on circuit bent devices and power tools. It springs from and elaborates on the multiplicity of natural, architectural, historic and cultural elements of the site, as they come from the past into the present through a plethora of myths and everyday stories, symbols and connotations, functions and emotions. Giannoulakis work is about relationships as processes of fusion and dialectic, that is the dynamic combination of different elements in a transformative experience, towards the instantiation of an organic musical unity. Sonic transformation, subtle or dramatic, gradual or sudden, plays with degrees of recognisability and creates imaginary sonic journeys based on the known, but extend to the adventure of the unknown – laying out some kind of idiosyncratic dreamscape for everyone to let evolve and explore in their own mind.
