In its unlimited expressivity, the piano has landed on to our time as an imaginary space-vehicle that travelled the path from classical to contemporary music and from jazz and its improvisational wealth to modern sonic installations, where computers software and hard-wiring abound. The latter, having opened the floodgates to an unprecedented sonic expression, contributed to the release of sound and its energy from its traditional bondings to rhythm and counterpoint. From the early days of tape-based experimentation until the gradual formation of the musique concrète genre, the occurred sonic renaissance transformed music to soundscapes, sculptures and tumultuous vibrations-more physically experienced than heard. Can an unplugged, “traditionally" played piano be capable of delivering a similar experience nowadays? Having the fundamental principles of musique concrète as a starting point, Vago Tedosio detaches sound from its presumed rhythmical and harmonic function and performs a set of improvisations for solo piano. In his music concept Tedosio defines sounds as entities born into a tabula-rasa aural plane that seek via proprioception an existence free of inherited music theory-based purpose but at the same time have the need to establish such a set of rules anew. Vago Tedosio (London- Athens ) studied piano and composition at the National Conservatory of Athens and at Concordia University- Canada. Self-taught later on and with an deep interest in fusing physics with art, he explores the application of Chaos Theory in music and its influence on the compositional development of music forms. A trademark of his music is the ever-going evolution of sound mass to melody and back, thus establishing an environment where harmony and counterpoint interrelate to sonic densities.
