Every incident is connected to a specific sound. Dissolving the compound opens new perspectives. Abstractions expose that the present view is merely a modifiable convention. 

Fireworks could unfurl entirely different.


In their musical dialog and radical improvisations Spanish guitarist Antonio Bravo and German film composer and guitarist Wilhelm Stegmeier deconstruct complex wavering noises to hallucinating hypnotic feedbacks that explode into improvised action paintings of colourful contemporary psychedelic soundscapes. Melodic abstract sculptures clash with repetitive rhythmic lines. Sustained, eclipsed and fluent blurred drone clusters, dense collages of various sounds with no pulse, expand in all directions, to merge surprisingly in explosive vertical and horizontal eruptions or fragile sensual microtonal fragments.

The soundtrack to the film is performed live as instant improv composition and varifies from performance to performance exploring the visuals as oscillating perfomative act.

Dos Plus is the audio visual collaboration of  filmmaker/visual artist Eleni Ampelakiotou (TEENAGE RESPONSE, ICH BIN HIER, BIRTH OF A SPHINX,  LIGHTS ON/OFF) and the experimental improv Electric-Guitar-Duo William Bravo Duo. Together they perform multisensorial interferences between narrative abstract fiction and instant improvised compositions to create a visual and sonic resonating experience.

The William Bravo Duo explore the sound map of their diverse musical origins, clashing their influences from the free jazz improvised music scene with the deconstructive energy of the avant-garde progressive pop movement performing as an electrified experimental post free noise jazz guitar duo based in Berlin.

In their recent collaboration with filmmaker/visual artist Eleni Ampelakiotou, the musical energy resonates with visual experimental storytelling deconstructing narrative structures and clichés to a distinctive synaesthetic audiovisual experience. 

The soundtrack to the films is performed live as instant improv composition and varifies from performance to performance exploring the visuals as oscillating perfomative act.
