about

Organized Music from Thessaloniki is proud to present a new solo work from Greek artist, Socrates Martinis.

Based in Athens, Martinis has over the years produced a measured and steady stream of electroacoustic sound-works of a distinct hermetic character, under his name and under the pseudonyms ‘nixilx.nijilx’, ‘Hélice Pied’, and ‘blanco estira nuestro (+),hermana Hélice’.

The tools he employs, objects, found sound and field recordings, cannot help but root the music into place – there are clear traces of the environments that surround the myriad sounds of friction, clangs, noises and thin sizzles that shape the narrative of the tracks. But this could be any place. The snapshots Martinis arranges are abstracted and shaped into an unassuming poetics of observation, with the action progressing and cutting from one microscopically detailed sound-moment to the next. The first track (‘Under the arches of her voice love echoes through metallic cylinders’) sets the tone with an extended survey of the quotidian, the listener’s lens shifting to a different scene only once a certain grounding has already been established. Subsequent tracks linger similarly, but often also jump more freely from a moment to the next, releasing the album from any obligation of storytelling, and instead developing a rare warmth of presence and immanence.
