The living legend, Domenick Fernow, also known as Prurient or Vatican Shadow, doesn’t need much of an introduction. Some fans also know him from his participation in bands like Cold Cave and Wolf Eyes, or by the alternative IDs of Exploring Jezebel, Mitochrondiral DNA, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement and more. Coming from the US, this experimental noise artist is also the mastermind behind the Hospital Productions record label and in this special show, he will present both his projects, Prurient and Vatican Shadow, for the first time in Greece, in one show. This is a call to the noise and techno supporters of Athens, Greece and the rest of the world! Fernow’s collaboration with labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Downwards, Ostgut Ton and Editions Mego -among others- may be familiar to dancefloor - oriented audience.
Both shows, Prurient and Vatican Shadow will be accompanied by the Hospital Productions’ label manager and charismatic DJ Becka Diamond. Hailing from New York City, acknowledged for her DJ sets on the Hospital Productions nights, Becka Diamond has been crafting decks all around the world, for years now.
Our American guests will be supported by some of the most prominent Greek artists of today. First on this list, we host the live performance of Georgios Karamanolakis, experimental electronic music producer – with influences ranging from monolithic drones and noise, to elements of free jazz and musique concrete, using many -modified or not- analogue and digital synthesizers, field recordings and tapes, metallic objects and various electroacoustic techniques. He might also be known from his leading participation in the Athenian cult, post-apocalyptic synth-punk band ODOS 55, the underground urban intervention team OMIO, his collaborative work with artists such as Hiroshi Hasegawa (Astro) and musique concrete master Jean-Marc Foussat, or even his “Athens Inner City Broadcast” show at the London Resonance FM experimental radio station.
ANFS is probably the most rising Greek artist at the moment. He is the founder of the highly respected label Vanila, and co-founder of the Modal Analysis label. This time he will present a very special collaborative DJ set, for the first time.
Completing the line-up, the residents DJs of Pi Electronics, 3.14 and DΛS will support the night as hosts of Pi39.
This is the last Pi party in Athens for 2018, and two more will occur in Greece, in 2019. More info will be announced in the following months.
