about

Nothing aiming is a splinter is the debut EP of Center no Distractor. The project is an explosion of movement, physicality and gritty, thumping beats, for taiko and live electronics.
A truly contemporary collaboration, Center no Distractor re-contextualize the taiko (a traditional Japanese drum) in a digital environment while retaining the essence of its aesthetic, athletic and musical qualities. This meld creates a visceral, industrial, post-primal/post-digital experience – an immersive and intense environment full of evolving soundscapes and fine detail, throbbing percussion, gut-moving bass, and turbulent oceans of sound.
The project features fully Do-It-Yourself instruments: Stephanie plays a self-constructed nagado taiko, made from an oak wine barrel which she built over a period of 1.5 years. Stelios performs with a modular instrument he created in the SuperCollider programming language, with custom-made processes and generators tuned for responsive, hands-on playing.
Center no Distractor performances are simultaneously a concert, an exploration of sound and body, a visual spectacle; they are dance for the ears, the body, the eyes and the mind. Nothing aiming is a splinter was recorded live, aiming to capture as much of this raw energy as possible.

Nothing aiming is a splinter es el EP debut de Center no Distractor. Este dúo de taiko y electrónica en vivo es una combinación explosiva de movimiento, fisicalidad, desborde y ritmos pulsantes. Center no Distractor es un auténtico proyecto de colaboración contemporánea que re-contextualiza el taiko (un tambor tradicional japonés) en un entorno digital, reteniendo la esencia de sus cualidades estéticas, atléticas y musicales. Esta conjunción crea una experiencia visceral, industrial, post primal y post digital – un ambiente intenso y envolvente lleno de paisajes sonoros cambiantes, pequeños detalles, percusión muy marcada, graves que te mueven las tripas y océanos turbulentos de sonido. El proyecto utiliza instrumentos completamente artesanales: Stephanie toca un nagado taiko hecho con un barril de roble que ella misma construyó en el lapso de un año y medio. Stelios desarrolló un instrumento modular en el lenguaje de programación SuperCollider, con procesos y generadores creados especialmente para el dúo y altamente sensibles a las imprevistas manipulaciones en vivo.
Las actuaciones de Center no Distractor son a la vez un concierto, una exploración del sonido y el cuerpo, un espectáculo visual; son una danza para los oídos, el cuerpo, los ojos y la mente. Nothing aiming is a splinter fue grabado en vivo, con el fin de capturar lo más fielmente posible esta energía en crudo.
