Liminal Vanguard

The group Liminal Vanguard was created in early 2015.

Their music can be characterised as liminal composition combined with
free improvisation. This can sometimes involve an improvisational
scenario, based on structural composition and songwriting.

LV have composed their version of a soundtrack for live performance for the Brazilian film ''Limite'' (1930) by Mario Peixoto, considered one of the most emblematic films in the history of international cinema.

The Depths Above

(Ishikawa, Sidirokastritis, Varoutas, Lambrakis, Linardou)

''I was lying down across the stern, lulled by the gentle swaying of the vessel, inhaling the smoke of the torch and trying to discern the stars in the depths above.''
Al. Papadiamandis

This excerpt from Alexandros Papadiamantis's novel “The Rose-tinted Shores” sums up the aesthetic experience of the album “The Depths Above”.

Ko Ishikawa, Nikos Sidirokastritis, Giorgos Varoutas, Harris Lambrakis and Anna Linardou interpret the ecstasy of nature, wandering between ancient memory and imagination.

Ancient instruments, such as the Japanese shō and the Middle Eastern ney, a piece of acacia wood and a voice, combined with electroacoustic guitar, electronic sound and live sampling, reflect a poetic contemplation of the human condition between the sea and the depths of the sky.

Ko Isikawa: shō 
Nikos Sidirokastritis: wood, floor tom, cymbal
Giorgos Varoutas: ac.guitar, electronics, objects, live sampling

Harris Lambrakis: ney

Anna Linardou: voice
