Open Studio #9

This is a demo of Martha Graham's technique performed on June, 2013. Choreographed by Olia Tornaritou and video by Socrates Spanos.

Feral

This was the single-project released by my Lumi Dance Company. I came up with the concept, installation and music. Myrto Grapsa made an amazing choreography and performed along with Ioanna Apostolou, Maria Fountouli, Tadeu Liesenfeldand Katerina Liontou. Lighting Design by Thomas Economacos and costumes by Maria Nikolopoulou-Apostolou.

Apurimac

I played with Apurimac from 1993 to around 2000. It was a wonderful experience. At that time Apurimac was the leading latin band in Greece. In 1997 we released the Mother Earth album under the Lyra label, which reached the number one on the Greek music charts.

Rorani

Rorani is the piece I wrote for the Mother Earth album, with lyrics by Despina Fortzera based on a poem by the Indian tribe Paiutes, translated to Greek by Socrates Scartsis.

Singer: Dafni Panourgia
Piano: Lucas Tsolakian
Daniel Armando: zampoña
Alejandro Diaz: zampoña
Nicos Psarianos: percussion
Theodoris Pitsiolis: violoncello

Web Design


I design themes for RapidWeaver and the Stacks plugin. RapidWeaver is a web-design application for the Apple Macintosh computer. With RapidWeaver you can build anything from a personal web page to a small business website, without knowledge of coding. Stacks is the most powerful plugin for RapidWeaver: it allows for building pages in a drag & drop fashion. I also make addons for Blocs, another great application for create websites without writing code.

All my web design work is distributed by Archetypon, my boutique web-design agency founded in 2012 in São Paulo Brazil. Since 2012 Archetypon has served over 40.000 clients worldwide.

Applications


Bell Tree

Bell Tree is a faithful reproduction of a real acoustic instrument, known in Pakistan as Tree Bells and in China as Bell Tree. The instrument was found at a flea market in Athens, Greece. It was unbranded and had no fabrication details so it’s not possible to determine where or when it was made, but according to the seller it was brought to Greece from India.

Original sounds were recorded at Esoteron Music Studio in Athens, with George Dovolos as recording engineer.

We can record / playback our sequences and add effects. Effects include various reverb simulations, delay and 3 band equaliser.

Designed and developed by me and my dear friend Jason Michailidis.

About


Hello, my name is Lucas & I live and work in Athens, Greece

I consider myself to be extremely fortunate, because my work generally entails doing what I love. I'm a musician / visual artist / web designer / computer programmer.
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil and moved to Greece in 1986. Since then I'm working as musician at the State School of Dance. I also work at the Greek National Opera Dance School and have worked and many other professional dance studios in Athens. My work with dance began very early as I've worked at Bale da Cidade de São Paulo in Brazil, long before moving to Greece.

In 1993 I joined Apurimac, the most relevant latin band in Greece. Together we released the Mother Earth album and topped the Greek charts back in 1999.

I have my own web design agency Archetypon which is based in São Paulo, where I travel constantly. I make themes for the most popular web design applications for the Apple Macintosh: RapidWeaver and Blocs. I also make addons for Stacks plugin for RapidWeaver. Since 2012 Archetypon have served over 40.000 clients worldwide.

I've also made some mobile applications for iOS and Android,: Bell Tree and As Mulheres. Both are available at the Apple iOS store, As Mulheres is also available at Google Play.

My installation work has been presented in some rare occasions in Brazil and Greece. The Rodelophones installation travelled many countries with the Rootlessroot company, as part of their premier performance.

I have a bachelor degree in Arts and Music from the Music and Drama Conservatory in São Paulo, a programmer certificate from the KEPA Institute in Athens and a computer programmer diploma from the Greenwich College in London, UK.

My downtime revolves around family, with a healthy dose of culinary creativity.
