Ioannis Angelakis

"I was born in Thessaloniki in 1988 but grew up in Athens. I'm a composer of contemporary experimental music, working, that is, with classical acoustic instruments and exploring idiosyncratic aspects of their physicality. I seek to discover sounds that are not fully controllable by the performers; that are inherently unstable and constantly moving; that entail a particular logic in the way that they unfold; that presup- pose a particular body-instrument relationship, and that call fora new mode of listening, disentangled from classical
forms and traditional parameters and intended for the kind of pleasure that arises from the revelation of sound's internal structures. structures.
Greekness" is expressed in my music through the violent use of instruments, the bluntness of the human voices, and the constant strife between two contradictory elements: disparate musical materials that remain indeterminate and anarchic, and a determinate structure that violently imposes form on the formless and shape on the shapeless. I think that all Greek tragedies thematize the violence stemming from this conflict: a man striving, without order, to shape his course within a condition that is predetermined by the gods. However, violence and bluntness in my work are not just sonic events that point to the Greek identity of my music. They also demarcate violence and barbarism as political concepts. I want my work to be revealing, not because of its bold themes but because the violence in the sound may give prominence to our fragility and vulnerability."

The portrait photography of the composer Ioannis Angelakis took place in his studio in Athens for Electra Hotels Magazine.

Athens Rollerskating

With a look at parks and sports venues, one will notice that next to the bikes and skateboards there are also skates. "K" magazine met in OAKA the team of City Skaters of Athens, to learn the secrets behind the new hobby that conquered the open spaces and streets of Greece during the pandemic.In what categories are skates divided? What are the capabilities of each type and how much does a good pair of rollers cost? Is it the sense of freedom it offers to the members of City Skaters of Athens and motivated them to engage in this hobby in their spare time? How did the pandemic become the perfect timing to "slip" on the streets and in the parks? What kind of routes are there for beginners and advanced? What are the reactions of the drivers who meet them on the avenues of Athens? Are there other groups that deal with different types of rollerskating in Greece? And finally, is it an easy hobby for someone who has no experience and is curious to do it? The published roller skaters portraits photographs follows.

Periklis Koskinas

Periklis Koskinas from the age of 19 he travels non-stop "plowing" the continents in search of new experiences, different cultures in England, France, Scotland, Spain, America, Canada, Venezuela, Athens.
Through the prism of the seasonality and locality of the ingredients, the quality, the rules and the limits set by the Greek cuisine, it shaped its techniques, philosophy and course in the world of cooking.
Subtraction and moderation determine his food.
Tireless traveler and uncompromising cook. Philosophical theoretical knowledge and knowledge of the social sciences are considered essential tools for him in his profession. The images of his wanderings, the memory and the man mark his food and not the recipes. For him, cooking is the art of everyday life, it is what is left on the table, after a Sunday meal. In 2014, he opened the restaurant Cookoovaya, in the Hilton area, as a co-owner with 5 other top chefs. Cokoovaya in its fifth year, is still among the top restaurants in the country and full every day.
I had the pleasure of working with him many times and being part of his projects. His headshots portraits follows.

"I am self-taught on the piano. My older sister, Eleni, had started classes and so we bought a piano at home. I was excited, I was experimenting on my own and at 13, after endless efforts, I wrote my first melodies. One of the first pieces I wrote was about a theatrical performance of "Glass World" at school. It was a subtle and fragile sound. At the same time I wrote another piece, which my friends encouraged me to send to the Ministry of Tourism, because it reminded them of ouzo and Greek summer. I sent in a random mail that I found the piece and a letter and they immediately replied that they like it very much and they want me to write them one more. I went crazy. It was the first time someone showed acceptance for my music. Eventually these songs played in the Visit Greece campaigns."
