Gavounna Warm Industry
- Words: Steve Nickolls
- Label: Melodic
Continuing their lineage of discovering unknown, highly talented artists, Melodic provide a debut release for Greek producer Athanasios Argianas as Gavounna, a worthy labelmate for Melodic's already impressive stable, which includes Minotaur Shock, Lucky Pierre and Pedro. A proponent of found-sound-sampling, Gavounna constructs incredibly delicate instrumental tracks, imperceptibly shifting through both organic and electronic sources, touching on contemporary classical, electronica and (although not obviously) a certain atmosphere of traditional Greek music. Plaintive and often melancholy, Gavounna deftly conjures sounds that evoke life, rich in texture and often dreamlike in quality. For comparison, see Susumu Yokota and Mira Calix; for gentle experimental joy, see Gavounna.
