A concert is not and should not be monopolised by sound. It is of course its primary element, but TETTTIΞ acknowledges the fact that the stage presence is very important. For that reason, TETTTIΞ collaborates with artists from other disciplines – theatre, dance, architecture, light design, cinema etc. – in order to design and realise projects that shape unified spectacles. In its projects the music works are chosen to draw a dramaturgy that is revealed together with the other arts.


In collaboration with stage director Anastasia Chintzoglou

To mark the 30th anniversary of Giacinto Scelsi’s death, ΤΕΤΤΤΙΞ stages an ambient performance, during which the spectators are left free to immerse themselves in the music or simply to follow it from a distance. Every composer calls forth different expressive means: imperceptible changes made by increasing or decreasing the density of the musical material or emphasizing a particular sound colour and instrumental register.

Guided by the music’s atmosphere, its ‘minimalist’ aesthetic and its impact, which moves between the hypnotic and the stimulating, Panagiotis Tomaras plays with the fundamental qualities of light. Using reflections and gradations of intensity and colour, he weaves subtle optical illusions and creates a singular environment for each work.
