Sister Overdrive


Yannis Kotsonis explores the limits & intersections between improvisation, sound art and electroacoustic composition, to construct variable, complex sonic events. Ηis pieces incorporate disparate sound materials including concrete sounds, malfunctioning devices, field recordings, feedback and software synthesis.

Since 2005 he has released several stylistically diverse albums under the alias Sister Overdrive, and has been active as an improviser in several different small and large group configurations, most notably in the improvising duo ‘acte vide‘ with Danae Stefanou. He has worked as a musician and sound designer for theatre, film, video dance and multimedia installations and is active as a curator and workshop/residency coordinator for events focusing on improvisation, field recordings and site – specific sound art.
