Yorgia Karidi interview for 06:00am


06:00 How would you describe what you do to someone that has not yet experienced your work, your art and performance?

I am an artist that does painting, drawing, videos, performing & singing.
I seek my art to be Fun, Exciting. Various mediums, Interchanging. When I present something I try to surpass a frame of expectations and senses. This is how I regard my everyday life as well.

06:00 How do you approach collaboration?

It happens when it does. I greatly respect collaboration. Especially in playing music, it's the bomb dot com.

06:00 Which are you favorite 5 youtubes from other users and why?

I used to love Ionia nisia cause I 've listened to super unexpected lyrics on there, the channel of make-up artist Lisa Eldridge because of her relaxing voice & cause she is just so efficient. I love vickyoxum8's channel because it seems from somewhere in Brasil and I listen to a shitload of obscure ( to me) brazilian tunes. Eerie recordings too.

06:00 Where do you live? Which are your favorite sounds in the space where you live?

I was born and live in a quiet neighborhood. I like it when a sudden loud thing comes up. A metal bucket against a wall per say. I also hang out a lot in my atelier. I love the sound of the Omonoia sq. traffic as heard from the seventh floor.

06:00 Suddenly every single radio station in the world broadcasts the same song, which song must that be?

Love me do.

06:00 What is the role of art?

It is there. So we can't get no satisfaction.

06:00 What is friendship?

I would' nt know. I only have siss & bros.

06:00 What is rhythm?

Something that's -the- -best-. Individuals dancing.

06:00 What are you listening to these days?

Make up tutorials, my field recordings, the music my friends share or play on their dj sets.

06:00 Which are your 3 favorite movies and why?

Ugh I cant chose! Le notti di Cabiria. A devine film of love, compassion and a zero bottom line so as to not forget we are vulnerable (τρωτοί).

06:00 Which was the last good book you read?

From Argentina.. 'Varamo' by Cesar Aira.

06:00 What is your first musical memory?

Ultra young memory: Though the plastic grid I was poking the net of the speaker of our cassette player with the ballpoint pen.

06:00 Send us a picture of yourself and a picture that best illustrates the current state of your mind.

Great! Attaching my first shot of 2016 (that's a co-selfie with bestie), and my first recording of 2016.

Standard In-Fi interview for 06:00am

























06: How did Standard In Fi start? What are your plans for the future?

Mathieu Tilly and I (Jérémie Sauvage) started releasing cdrs of our band France in 2006 as a means of spreading our music around and start an archival of our music. The name Standard In-Fi appeared with the first Lp we produced, Puech, Gourdon, Bremaud, which is also a project where we were not implicated as musicians, but rather as curators. Since 2006 we’ve been starting from scraps and growing slowly at our own pace, our plans for the future is to keep that going, and produce a maximum of recordings of the musicians and music we’d love to hear.

06: How do you approach collaboration?

(I assume you are refering to collaboration with other labels for a release ? ...) Collaboration is a way to share expenses, at least that’s the way we saw it originaly. Cutting expenses by half means you can do twice as many releases with the same amount of money, and that means more music spread. But the offspring of such collaborations goes way beyond money related issues. You share information, contacts, auditors etc. but most importantly you share artistic points of views. It’s rare to share deep thoughts or very specific notions present in one’s work with someone else (whether as a musician or an editor). Collaborations enable you to do so.


06: How did you decide to include an interview of Pierre into the “Territory” album of Tanz Mein Herz?

For one thing, the music we release with Standard In-Fi always serves a greater purpose, or is part of something bigger than just a band or a musician expressing himself on a piece of wax. Sadly, there are but few occasions for an artist to express his thoughts and explain his or her work. Even in the underground, you can get the feeling of simply being there as a mere entertainer. For an underground musician who will sacrifice many things in his existence to work on a certain form of art and getting little from it, that feeling is unacceptable. Pierre has been writting a lot lately, being very active in Saint Etienne, and I very much have enjoyed discussing precise topics with him and reading his essays. There is a great freedom in his written work, in his expression, ideas and sensivity. His way of articulating emotions, physical phenomenons, philosophy and spirit is pretty much banned by all the thinkers and faculty-raised-entities who usualy write and release books, essays, critics etc. on similar subjetcs and which we read. Standard In-Fi felt it was im- portant to share such thoughts, and spread them around as we could to all the curious minds out there. We initiated the interview sheet with the Toad album and hope to continue doing so for our upcoming releases.

06: Pierre Bujeau mentioned in your interview "As hard as it may be to create composed music in a resonating space, it is entrancing to use this resonance in order to create music in situ. Crafting a listening situation and a sonic construction is currently at the heart of my acoustic research. One of the goals of this type of research would be the creation of a volume or space dedicated to a single sound."
In which (practical) ways, that you've discovered, is crafting such a listening situation possible?

Crafting a listening situation for an audience, as far as I know, is simply leading them to a certain place and time, with the idea that they will hear something, music or sound. Eventually, anyone can start listening to anything and anywhere, whether they are in the streets, at home etc. As far as my experience goes, the simple written word "concert" on a poster for example, can go a long way.
Concert means lots of things, it induces a gathering, but also a shared comprehension, a communion...and of course one goes to a concert with the intention of listening. In that way, you can invite people for a walk in the woods, tell them it's a concert, and people are going to start listening. Apparently, you can also expect people to start listening when they set the needle on a record in their living room. Working around those two simple examples can go a long way in the crafting of a listening situation.
But that might not be what Pierre meant...

06: Suddenly all the radios in the world broadcast the same song. what song must that be?

A worldwide broadcast... I guess Nasa’s Voyager record could be interesting. Humans talking to ... humans.

06: What was the last good records you bought?

Lately I buy a lot of tapes from In-A-Minute Records, based in San Francisco, active in the early 90’s, and other tapes related to that area and time. RBL Posse’s «A Lesson To Be Learned» has been bumping in my car all summer. I’m impressed by the freedom and love induced in afro ame- rican music, whether it be spritual jazz, or agressive ghetto (specific zones) music like Bay Area hip-hop from the 90’s. RBL’s blend of sampled black music dancefloor beats and dubbed voice/ lyrics just makes a lot of sense. That energy is gold. I see them as musicians commited to making music for a local audience, talking about what they see, experience, live... and how they hate po- lice or other half-assed ignorant/lazy lifestyles. In very similar ways but from another area, the best record I bought this year was probably Jan Dau Melhau’s «Lo Deleser»... because I couldn’t afford his «Lo Diable Es Jos La Porta» record...
As for recent artists, concerts will always be better than records in my eyes... all in all, I don’t listen to much recorded music, I get my kicks when music is played live!

06: What is home? What is a city?

Home is where you get the feeling of familiarity. I can’t really think of anything else to define it, it can be a lot of things! A construction like a house, a neighborhood, a country... What is a city? I don’t know, I live in the country-side now.

06: What is the role of art?

Once again, art is made of many things, and it’s roles are numerous. Art should be the greatest good, a light on the situation at hand. I prefer when that light is shed with passion and love... in that way it’s role is to fulfill my needs of the moment, whether they are poetical, intellectual, philosophical... Art has the power to fulfill all these needs at once.

06: What does one miss when she/he grows up?

Nostalgia is something everyone experiences, and corresponds to a broader feeling than simply the act of missing. I can be nostalgic about a period in my life, or a relation I had with someone... that feeling will be very rich and substantial. The sense of missing is superfluous... for example I miss that car I sold back in 2007, a grey Peugeot 205 Open series, a true beamer.

06: Do you think that people should live in outer space?

People do what they want, mind you, I’d rather continue living in our atmosphere, enjoy the sun rays as they are down here.. quite perfect. I’ll wait for Death as a cosmic departure..

06: What is friendship?

It’s what’s closest to familyship. It’s very precious. I guess Martin Scorcese has painted a fair portrait of friendship throughout his work.

06: Which three records would you definitely play to your kids?

I don’t have kids. Maybe that urge of passing something on can explain the existence of our label? I reckon I’d rather let my kid play with a selection of three instruments.

06: What is in your music that is in you as well as a characteristic of biorhythm and character?

I’m hoping all of it!

06: What is your opinion about the current situation in the EU?

In a forest, we would be the bramble. everybody hates bramble. But do they realize bramble is here to protect areas that need to grow again? Enabling young, tender trees to grow free from the attacks of animals, or protect an area that musn’t be stamped on? Even dead, it’s branches are like glass and are almost as efficient in terms of bariccading as the living ones, if not more. In order to survive and spread, although razor sharp and aggressive, these weeds bare one of the most delicious berry fruit.

06: send us your favorite pictures of yourselves and a picture that best illustrates your current state of mind

Άγγελος κυρίου (Angelos kyriou) interview for 06:00am

For ENGLISH scroll down

how would you talk about your work if someone would ask “so what is your music like?”

θα έλεγα ότι είναι ένας συνδυασμός ήχων που προκαλώ και λέξεων φράσεων προτάσεων που σημειώνω

describe one “regular'' recording process of yours.

αυτοσχεδιάζω ηχογραφώντας ό, τι έχω γύρω μου εκείνη τη στιγμή,
ηχογραφώ αυτοσχεδιάζοντας με ό, τι έχω γύρω μου εκείνη τη στιγμή

what are you listening to these days? what was the last good record you bought?

Ξανά αυτά από το παρελθόν
Plone- for beginner piano
El-p -fantastic damage
και αυτό από πιο νέα Atlanteans -cluster

τελευταίος: big fat lips - looting (αλήθεια και είναι φανταστικός δίσκος πραγματικά)

suddenly all the radios in the world broadcast the same song. what song must that be?

Don& juan -what's your name ή pere ubu -breath ή beach boys – let the wind blow
(ντάξει το 3)

where do you live? what is your favorite sound in the space where you live?

Στην αθήνα, αγαπημένος ήχος είναι ο ήχος της βρύσης στο μπαλκόνι
όταν βάζω πλυντήριο (παίζει κάποια σύνδεση που δεν καταλαβαίνω αλλά κάνει ένα πολύ ωραίο σκάσιμο και φτύνει λίγο νερό σαν να κάνει εμετό)

what is your first musical memory?

μπροστά σε κασετόφωνο λέω ένα παιδικό τραγούδι, ξαφνικά σταματάω, ο πατέρας μου λέει 'πες το παιδί μου' εγώ λέω 'ναι' και πατάω stop, μετά πατάω rec και ο πατέρας μου λέει 'έλα ρε άγγελε' και ξαναπατάω stop

How have you been living and working around and about the current turmoil we live in? What is your opinion about what is going on?

Η απάντηση σε μια τέτοια ερώτηση δεν μπορεί να'ναι 'αλλη από την ίδια την ερώτηση ή και μια σειρά από νέες που ίσως χρειάζεται να της θέσουμε

Have you always been living in the same neighborhood as when you were a kid? If yes, how has it changed through the years?

Όχι μένω τα τελευταία 8 χρόνια στην ίδια γειτονιά, μεγάλωσα σε χωριό και πριν έρθω εδώ ζούσα σε μια άλλη πόλη.

Have you ever thought about releasing in one single release all the recordings you ve uploaded online?

Ναι αλλά η αλήθεια είναι ότι με ενδιαφέρει περισσότερο η online κυκλοφορία όσον αφορά τις ηχογραφήσεις μου, οπότε αυτές τις μέρες συγκέντρωσα σχεδόν όλα τα album που είχα κυκλοφορήσει μέσω του blog μου σε ένα αρχείο και το μοιράστηκα

From your recordings, which is the most important for you and why?

Δεν μπορώ να σκεφτώ κάποια συγκεριμένη ηχογράφηση ούτε θα 'θελα να πω ότι είναι όλες σημαντικές αν και αυτό μοιάζει να ισχύει περισσότερο.Πιο σημαντική μού φαίνεται η όλη διαδικασία της ηχογράφησης όταν συμβαίνει, γι'αυτό και θέλω (και επιδιώκω) να συμβαίνει καθημερινά.

Do you have a favorite musical instrument?

Όχι αν και μ'αρέσει η ακουστική κιθάρα κυρίως όταν καίγεται μαζί με ρακέτες σε παραλίες

What is friendship?

Μία ή περισσότερες ερωτήσεις σε μισοσπασμένο καθρέφτη (και αυτό δεν σημαίνει αυτόματα ότι κάθεσαι μπροστά του)

Your top 3 pop records of all time?

pet sounds – beach boys
wild honey – beach boys
sunflower – beach boys


Lets say you have two hours left to live and somehow your only choices are to listen to your favorite record or make a final recording that would be a masterpiece. Which activity would you chose?

Θα προτιμούσα να ηχογραφήσω μιας και είναι αυτό που απολαμβάνω περισσότερο γενικά δηλαδή γενικότερα στη ζωή, συν το γεγονός ότι περιλαμβάνει και ακρόαση η διαδικασία μερικές φορές οπότε μια χαρά θα το συνδύαζα, ωραία ωραία
(βέβαια αν θα γινόταν masterpiece ή όχι με αφήνει αδιάφορο)

send us your favorite picture of yourself and one that best illustrates your current state of mind

δεν μου αρέσουν οι φωτογραφίες που με περιέχουν και τις αποφεύγω οπότε θα σας στείλω τη δεύτερη που είναι και εικόνα για ένα αλμπουμ που ηχογραφώ αυτές τις μέρες



thank you very much
we are very happy to be having you on 06:00am!!!

και δική μου χαρά :)

ENGLISH

how would you talk about your work if someone would ask “so what is your music like?”

i d say that it is a combination of sounds i make and of words phrases sentences i note down

describe one “regular'' recording process of yours.

I improvise by recording whatever i have around me at that moment, i record by improvising with what i have around me at that moment

what are you listening to these days? what was the last good record you bought?

Again these from the past

Plone- for beginner piano
El-p -fantastic damage

and this from the newer Atlanteans -cluster

last one: big fat lips - looting (it is the truth and it is a fantastic record indeed)

suddenly all the radios in the world broadcast the same song. what song must that be?

Don& juan -what's your name or pere ubu -breath or beach boys – let the wind blow
(ok the 3rd)

where do you live? what is your favorite sound in the space where you live?

In Athens, my favorite sound is the sound of the running water tap in the balcony
when i do the laundry (there must be a connection there i do not understand but it makes a very nice blowing sound and spits out a little bit of water as if it vomits)

what is your first musical memory?

in front of a cassette tape player i sing a children's song, suddenly i stop, my father tells me 'say it kid' and i say 'yes' and press stop, then press rec and my father says 'come on Aggelos!' and the i press stop again  

How have you been living and working around and about the current turmoil we live in? What is your opinion about what is going on?

The answer to such a question can't be other than the question itself or a series of new ones that we need to ask

Have you always been living in the same neighborhood as when you were a kid? If yes, how has it changed through the years?

No i live the last 8 years in the same neighborhood, i grew up in a village and before i got here i lived in another city.

Have you ever thought about releasing in one single release all the recordings you ve uploaded online?

Yes but the truth is that i am more interested in online releasing regarding my recordings, so these days i gathered almost all the albums i had released through my blog in a single file and shared it.

From your recordings, which is the most important for you and why?

I cannot think of one specific recording nor would i say that they are all important even though this seems to apply more. The most important i find the whole process of recording when it occurs, this is why i want (and seek) for it to occur every day.  

Do you have a favorite musical instrument?

No though i like the acoustic guitar especially when it is burning along with rackets in beaches

What is friendship?

One or more questions in half-broken mirror (and this does not mean that you are sitting in front of it)


Your top 3 pop records of all time?

pet sounds – beach boys
wild honey – beach boys
sunflower – beach boys


Lets say you have two hours left to live and somehow your only choices are to listen to your favorite record or make a final recording that would be a masterpiece. Which activity would you chose?

I would rather record once that it is what i enjoy more in general that is in general in life, plus the fact that it includes listening some times so i d combine it pretty well, nice nice
(of course if it would be a masterpiece or not leaves me indifferent)


send us your favorite picture of yourself and one that best illustrates your current state of mind

I do not like pictures of me and i avoid them so i am sending you the second which is an image for an album i am recording these days



thank you very much
we are very happy to be having you on 06:00am!!!


my pleasure :)
