Über mich



Novi_sad is the guise for Thanasis Kaproulias (b. 1980) who holds a degree from the Economic University of Piraues. He lives and works in Athens, Greece. Influenced by the pioneers of audio assault, he began generating sounds in 2005. No studies, no academic education, no scholarships, just pure learning by doing. Amplified environmental recordings, drone manipulations, structured ambient soundscapes, microtones vs overtones, all come together in a hyper structure of iconoclastic form.

Novi_sad’s artistic output displays a high level of technical ability, as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of location. The strength of his soundscapes works in the same elaborateness for the whole creation process, starting from a basis of very strong conceptualism, the intense examination of field recordings over the actual composition work, to the point of performing back the result onto location. Every sound that occurs is treated with a sculptural integrity and his sonic power operates on a level in which the audience participates as transcendental listeners.

His approach is similar to the 'cinema pour l'oreille' (cinema for the ear) and in turn would like to ‘donner à voir’ (lead to seeing) by means of sound. Being immersed in his sonic environment offers an absolutely visceral and cerebral experience at once. Novi_sad explores sound as sensation pulling apart its physical properties to reveal its relationship with human perception. Some of his projects are primarily focused in architectural acoustics and the relationship between architecture and sound, when other projects are based on various methods of audio analysis in extremely unique recordings and the use of quantitative and numerical data from different sources.

His vertiginous structures destruct and reconstruct architectonic, organic and sentimental abstractions with precision and hypnotic beauty, which functions as a gateway onto eternity. His music has been described as ‘a complete surrendering of the senses’. Novi_sad’s albums found plenty of receptive ears, receiving glowing reviews in music media around the world. His audio works are available from Sedimental (U.S), Touch (U.K), Staalplaat (NL) and Sub Rosa (BE).

He has performed his work live in cinemas, industrial spaces, theatres, churches, museums, galleries, squats, in festivals like Mutek [Montreal, Canada], Ultrahung [Budapest, Hungary], Observatori [Valencia, Spain], Gaudeamus Musis Week [Amsterdam, The Netherlands], Field recordings festival [Berlin, Germany], Interferenze [Bisaccia, Italy], Suoni per il popolo [Montreal, Canada], Full-Pull, [Malmö, Sweden], and in such spaces as VPRO National Radio [Amsterdam, The Netherlands], Diapason Gallery [New York, U.S.A], Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts [Copenhagen, Denmark], Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ [Amsterdam, The Netherlands], Fylkingen [Stockholm, Sweden], The Chapel [Seattle, U.S.A] a.o.
