A Greek meets a Mexican in London. The Mexican meets an American in Mexico. The American meets the Greek in Madrid. It sounds like the
beginning of a joke about airplanes and parachutes but in fact, it's the beginning of a trio whose music has been acclaimed by the critics
as "stunning in its clarity, exquisite in it palette of sounds and inexhaustible invention" (James Wyness), the result of an "incredible
level of musicianship." (Dave X - Startling Moniker). For the musicians, each of whom live in a different country, it's all much more
straightforward: it's a chance to make music, which is no small thing.
Wade Matthews is an american composer and improviser. In 1989, he moved from New York to Madrid and became part
of the international improv community. In 2007, he founded Intermedia 28. There, he began to combine field recordings with electronic
synthesis in a 2-computer setup that has since become his main instrument.
Thanos Chrysakis output consists of composition, performance, and installation. He was born in Athens in 1971,
residing for the last ten years in the UK. His work “Inscape 5” was amongst the selected works at the International Competition
