Carte Blanche to Ben UFO
(Bokeh Versions, Ecstatic - GR)
Jay Glass Dubs is an exercise of style focusing on a counter-factual historical approach of dub music, stripped down to its basic drum/bass/vox/effects form.
Dimitris Papadatos (b.1981,USA) is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece. The main concern in his work is an apposition of disparate elements that assume a re-appropriation of historically applied methodologies while questioning forms of empowering them.The biggest body of his work reflects issues as copyright, spirituality and originality, undergoing a constant state of transfiguration of its outsourcing.
At the moment he actively runs three projects. KU, The Hydra and Jay Glass Dubs.
His work has been presented in various international institutions and festivals from documenta14, the Transmediale, the Athens Biennale, the Onassis Cultural Centre and Fasma Festival, to the Athens/Epidaure Festival, Cynetart Festival, Ombre Lunghe Festival, Fraternity Of Sound Festival and the Greek National Theatre.
