Human (Mediterranean Instrumental cover)
A Greece-based musician, vasilis ginos was born in Athens in the '60s. He started off playing keyboards in bands, most of which he co-founded. His influences were the big rock groups of the era, his (non-formal but nonetheless) classical training and a late infatuation with jazz. After his Law Degree from Athens University he worked as a session musician and later an arranger and musical director for the local music scene.
An early adopter of music technology (computers and synthesizers) - even worked for Roland as a product specialist for a while - he put his skills in good use, live and in the studio. The result were many platinum-selling CDs and series of successful concerts and live performances all over Greece, backing or arranging for every major artist of his country. While at it, he developed a deep understanding and knowledge of the local repertoire and folk music of the Balkan Peninsula and the Mediterranean Basin. He pioneered the fusion of these world idioms with international pop/rock music and modern production techniques, producing major local mainstream hits for the last two decades. He is also a regular contributor to cinephonix music library, Content Creators Lounge and Soundfirm Audio Library, composing production music for all media.
Keeping busy in this line of work, it wasn't until recently that he started working on the ambigua project, a modern paradigm of 20th-century classical music. Inspired by the great composers of that era, ambigua is an interpretation of selected pieces using synthesizers.
ambigua is conceived in three acts and was completed in late 2017, with plans for 7:1 surround sound and 3D visual content. Electron Stories with Cats (an electronic suite in nine parts, composed, arranged and produced by vasilis) was released in October, 2015. Since fall, 2017 he is teaching classes in Art Music School, Athens. His latest release, the third act of "Ambigua" features Arnold Schoenberg's "Verklarte Nacht" - a soundscaped, cinematic experience, a true breath of "air from another planet".
