Nikos Platyrachos is collaborating with award-winning Swiss clarinetist and composer Claudio Puntin to create highly meditative, electroacoustic – ambient music inspired by silence. Based on three decades of friendship, this musical symbiosis is re-sensitizing cultural values and decomposing restrictions and borders.

Puntin and Platyrachos evolved a deeply chilled and breathful musical concept. The use of few but essential notes and precise live-electronics, elevates the music to a touching and calm ambient atmosphere. Two experienced artists in their most personal work, radically intimate and essentially wordless. All music is recorded live, in a peaceful environment, without overdubs and stress.

The album “SLOW” consists of 10 sensitive tracks with healing power for when life gets too fast.
