Ioannis Kalantzis’ Antiparastaseis for string quartet and tape was also particularly enjoyable as it explored, like many works before, the aesthetic contrasts between real and synthetic sounds with the latter so hard to distinguish at times from the live sounds that the work almost approached the form of a double quartet.

Two musical offerings, “SIM4” (2007), by Ioannis Kalantzis, and “Notturno” (2007), by Antonio Scarcia, were created and realized by computer, recorded and presented in absentia. With slowly-emerging Feldman-like deliberation, the latter piece provided a soothing contrast.
And Kalantzis’ work, with scintillating color and well-punctuated timing, represents electronic music par excellence. The audience expressed appreciation that hopefully rippled through the airwaves.
