Ghosts & Strings – or G&S, is my personal project to write music for no one but myself. It combines my love for minimalist, ambient, shoe gaze, space rock, post rock, and guitar based music. Described by many as atmospheric cinematic rock, G&S music has been used in many video, films, and installations. Live performances range from solo act, to up to 7 musicians on stage. Most shows feature live projections by video artist Mickey T, or 16 mm film maker Anna Geyer. G&S has toured Peru, Argentina, and NYC. Music can be found on Dorog Records (Peru), Resting Bell (Berlin), or through myself.
Impuritan is a San Francisco-based experimental/ambient/psychedelic rock project which started as a solo recording project by Alex Eliopoulos in 2005 and has recently also become a live band. I helped produce, mix, tweak, and added organ, bells, and ambient tracks to the recent EP “Hijacked Artifacts, Treasured Forms.” It is available on iTunes and all other online distributors on Distant Spore Records.
