about

'Tiatoma' is a compound latinised spelling of 'τι άτομα' [ti = what? • atoma = atoms/people], a Greek expression which is colloquially used for multiple purposes to show one is impressed, unimpressed or even surprised by people's behaviour. Its interpretation is dependent on the tone with which it's delivered.

The sounds on this record were unravelled by three individual groups of conglomerate atom particles currently experiencing 'life' as a correlational passage of time and space in human format. All this within the limited boundaries of our understanding. These beings came together to experience, express and document sentiments and reactive happenings within real moments spent in the same space interacting through sound.

Saber Rider and Dimitris Foken first met Dave De Rose during Fengaros Music Village (Cyprus, 2014) where he was tutoring a workshop. Unpredictably these grown up youngsters would be there for him to share both friendship and musical exhilaration as Agile Experiments embarked on the making of 'Athens' (Jan/Feb 2019). Together this trio amassed enough outstanding material to feature not only on the DDR012 release but also to present here another whole batch of extremely lit and unique sounds from the sessions in the Greek capital.

Rider and Foken, who'd already been making fantastic music of their own, were particularly impressive with their use of on-the-fly sampling into lo-fi vintage synths, loop mangling, drone ambience, space, tone, lyrical melodies and precious noise. We are extremely lucky to be able to feature their uncompromising original sound on this release.

We hope that you will truly enjoy these minutes of off-the-cuff cooperative creativity.
In good faith and love for people and music,
Agile Experiments

released May 2, 2020

These 44 minutes of music are edits from freely improvised, live sessions recorded at Electric Zen Studio (trio Feb 22nd), Downstroke Studio* (duo Feb 25th) & Wrong Movement Dance Studio** (trio + dancers Feb 23rd) in Athens, 2019. We are extremely grateful to Michalis Kavvadias and Thanos Amorginos* for opening the doors to their recording spaces, creating a great welcoming atmosphere and capturing the sounds we made. The final output was edited down to separate tracks selecting just a start and finish point, and only on one occasion was a live overdub layer of electric bass added to complete the picture (TIATOMO VIII).
Aside from the very faint presence of rumble on the studio floor you cannot hear Theano Ksidia & Athina Kyrousi-Salvucci dancing but both they and the audience greatly inspired the performance which led to 'TIATOMO V'.

Saber Rider (Synthesisers, Live Sampling, Loops & FX)
