Listen to music by Greek composer Manos Milonakis on his new album Festen.
Manos Milonakis is a composer from Thessaloniki, Greece. His Twitter page describes his music as “minimal, modern classical, experimental”. Manos produces modern classical music for films and theatrical plays, as well as for his independent solo work, and also works as a freelance architect at his own architectural studio in Thessaloniki. He’s a former member of the multi-instrumental cinematic-folk musical duet of Your Hand in Mine.
He composed the original score for a theatrical adaptation of Thomas Vinterberg’s film Festen for the National Theatre of Northern Greece – a soundscape odyssey fusing piano, wurlitzer piano, synthesizers, persephone, glockenspiel, violin, viola, cello, guitar, beat programming, and loop processing.
