Vassilis Roupas

Hardcore Zen is composed mainly from electric guitar (distorted) sounds. It also includes the voice of a child playing with a wooden toy. The piece tries to demonstrate that noise, when used artistically, can be ecological (see Joseph Nechvatal’s book “Immersion into noise”). In that sense, the word hardcore is associated with noise and the word zen is associated with ecology. Therefore, the title of the piece could be “Noise Ecology”. This idea interests me and I intend to elaborate on it in my future projects. The piece has been presented at the Electroacoustic Days festival (Greece, 2012) at the 3rd Conference of Acoustic Ecology (Athens, 2014) and at the General Assembly of CIME/ICEM (USA, 2014).
