Studio Spetson had it’s first live in residents in the summer of 2019. My friends and sometime collaborators the S.L.Á.T.U.R composer collective was participating in the 26th Tectonics festival (held for the second time in Athens) and used Spetson as a staging ground for the festival.
Áki Ásgeirsson premiered the composition 195°, featuring a new instrument which required fabrication and bespoke electronics which he built at the studio. He refers to the instrument as a light-synth, it uses laser to transmit signal to the players and sound-generating sub stations.
It was very satisfying to have houseguests and see the place put to good use.
