Christos Chondropoulos - Music From The Early Robotic Societies Of The Basin



A1 Desire As Love
A2 Disco Veduno
A3 Maternal  
B1 The Turkish Bath
B2 Smile Again
B3 Future Basin

This project imagines a futuristic scenario – of a post-human society in the Athenian basin and of its music. Robots are reminded of the fundamental joys of playing, singing and dancing with these eight channel cassette recordings, inspired by Greece’s complex cultural traditions and associations with Asia and Africa.


Christos Chondropoulos (b.1984) is a percussionist and producer based in Athens, Greece. He made his debut as a member of the experimental band XYSM. In 2013 he released “Fingerpainting”, a solo percussion LP. In 2015 his collaboration with Acid Baby Jesus resulted in two releases on Slovenly Recordings. Notable live performances include 2014’s Borderline Festival at The Onassis Cultural Centre and 2017’s MAWA Festival. In 2016 he participated in “634 Minutes Inside A Volcano”, which brought the Greek improvisational scene to the cover of New York Times. In 2017 he was invited by Documenta 14 to join the Listening Room programme – his mixtape “Athenian Primitivism” was also transmitted by Documenta 14’s “Every Time A Ear di Soun”.
