SOLO PERFORMANCE (P r o j e c t)

Solo Music Performance is an interactive music project that travels through a wide range of musical genres. Starting with a lounge mood and ending in dance ethnic atmospheres, Vaggelis Tountas records sounds and melodies on the spot that are continuously reproduced (livelooping) while with the various effects he uses on the violin, guitar, keyboards and percussion, he connects, accompanied by vocals, the traditional sound of the violin with unpredictable musical genres and styles. Vaggelis Tounta’s violin performance combined with the pre-recorded material creates a delightful happening, a plethora of sounds and musical textures with familiar sounds from the world of cinema, but also melodies of his own, as well as covers of well-known songs from the pop , jazz, rock, and world music scene.
