A live loop session will take over the part of the Limassol coast occupied by the Columbia Beach next Tuesday as the hotel continues to dedicate the midweek night to live music.
Welcoming Stefanos Georgiadis, the musician is ready to lift the night’s party spirits with his looping station. Looping comprises sounds that are recorded live, and are then looped over and over again, creating a tune from just one performer and a machine.
Music is a long-standing passion for Stefanos, having studied for a BA in England and bagging a Sheridan Instrumental Prize. He continued with an MA in Contemporary Music under Dr Jonathan Clark, during which he got involved with the live looping technique under the guidance of bass guitar soloist Steve Lawson.
It was then when he established the Loop Station Project, since when his performances are based on live looping. His project was presented on national television in 2008, combining covers of Greek and English tunes. Since then he has expanded his repertoire and his gear for solo performances.
His craft however, goes beyond looping. Multi-instrumentalist is a title Stefanos takes from time to time when collaborating with bands, working on album recordings and as a composer, arranger and guitar tutor. In fact, some of his songs were performed in England, France, Greece and Cyprus.
Now, he brings his music passion to Columbia Beach for an alternative music party, different than the usual jazz, pop, funk nights the venue usually holds.
