Description of work with field recording
Yiorgis Sakellariou's practice is founded on the digital manipulation of environmental recordings. His palette of sounds is all-encompassing; from vibrating rail-tracks to refrigerators' static, and from noisy waterfalls to the humming of insects, all may find their place in his arsenal.
