It is quite possible, if not certain, that any biographical entry will refer to Costis Drygianakis as an experimental musician. We would do the same. He himself, in a recent article of his regarding the meaning, or more precisely, the definition of experimental music, goes as far as to question even the very existence of experimental music itself. We linger on a sentence in Costis’ text, one which we read over and over: “The experiment, in every way, is connected to the present”. Let’s hold that thought. Since the first days of the label, we were certain that we would someday propose a collaboration between Costis Drygianakis and Coherent States, for reasons that are, in a nutshell, summed up in the vast admiration we have for his work over the years, from his rather improvisational project Optical Musics (1984-1994) and our all time favorite ambience of “Hours and Seasons” cassette (1992) to the eerie ghosts of his “Blown Into Breeze” LP (2013). It was always bound to happen. And as with all appropriate moments, it didn’t come until it came. When we were holed up in our homes. Literally. At the end of April. In the present. In the place to where the experiment must be connected in every way.
