Mecha/Orga is the project of Yiorgis Sakellariou, a self-taught musician working in the fields of computer music and phonography. Having a background in classical and folk (Mediterranean) music, he came to develop his personal language during the '00s. Since then, he is active internationally being responsible for solo albums, having composed music for short films and theatrical performances, leading workshops and ceaselessly performing his music around the globe.
His practice is founded on the digital manipulation of environmental recordings. His palette of sounds is all-encompassing; from vibrating rail-tracks to refrigerators' static, and from noisy waterfalls to the humming of insects, all may find their place in his arsenal. He only performs in absolute darkness, fostering an all-inclusive and profoundly submerging sonic experience.
He is member of the Athenian Contemporary Music Research Centre (founded by I. Xenakis) and the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers' Association. Since 2004 he runs the label Echomusic.
