"Flix it at the OCC" is staging a tribute to Lena Platonos which will follow her all the way from the early, unforgettable days of Sabotage
through into the present, where a new generation of musicians both in Greece and further afield have inevitably become recent and enthusiastic converts to her music.
"Flix it at the OCC" is proud to present the world première of λπ
, Christos Petrou's documentary recording the life, work, impact and timelessness of Lena Platonos in a constantly surprising, moving and genuinely inspiring portrait of a great artist.
The music of Lena Platonos, an important figure on the Greek electronic music scene whose ground-breaking work was far, far ahead of its time, is now earning her more and more fans around the world, thanks to the re-release of her records and remixes of her tracks. With the help of colleagues, friends and contemporary artists from Greece and abroad, λπ
takes us back to the era in which these revolutionary LPs were made.
After the film, it will be time to hear Lena Platonos live on stage, playing an acoustic set on piano, picking up the thread of λπ
and conveying it live to the audience in collaboration with the outstanding Philip Jeck
. Jeck is a unique musician: a turntablist extraordinaire, if we want to attach a label to his work, he uses vinyl which he loops and 'abuses' live on battered old—though not only—turntables to create musical environments which defy description. His concerts are musical events. At the OCC, his set will be based exclusively on the three records which form the subject of λπ (Masks of the Sun, Gallup, Lepidoptera).
After the live performance, Josh Cheon of Dark Entries Records
will perform a dj set in the OCC lobby featuring the music that has made him so very much in demand in every corner of our planet.
