Giannis Papaioannou (aka ION) is back with new album, out today!

Balancing between atmospheric dub drones and ambient soundscapes, field recordings (on various locations all over Greece) and post-rock guitars, this is first ION album in five years. Following the release of “Elfish Tapes” (2010) this album continues as an exploration in silent harmonies born in abandoned Greek landscapes. Featuring 13 compositions for electronics, tapes and guitars “MAYΡΗ ΣΥΧΝΟΤΗΤΑ” is a full length adventure into sonic isolationism that gets its Greek name from the black noise frequency, also known as “silent noise”.

* Giannis Papaioannou is a musician, sound artist & DJ active in the Athens underground scene. As songwriter and producer he is also leading the industrial band Mechanimal since 2011.
