Mihalis Shammas


Proximity Music

Mihalis Shammas is an artist with a background in architecture, industrial design and music originally from Cyprus and based in The Hague. He graduated in 2021 from the Institute of Sonology, creating a new electro acoustic instrument called Lyraei. A modern electronic interpretation of the ancient greek harp, this is a string instrument that is played as an electronic synthesiser. Electromagnetic induction electronics designed and fabricated by the artist are employed to excite the strings and generate continuous sounds that can be controlled with unprecedented precision. The instrument is designed to create an immersive and physical experience in which the player leads listeners into a state of trance through dense sonic tapestries. For Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought Mihalis Shammas will perform daily concerts.

Proximity Music takes place from 8 - 10 April. Find out more here.
