Consciousness Federation is Kostas Akparidis and Kostas Loukovikas, both born in Xanthi, a town in northern Greece. Both followed the “musical path”, attending music academies, followed by participations in local music projects and bands. The attraction and love for the electronic based music and the technology behind it, drove them to participate in sound technology courses where they got their degree in audio engineering and music production.
Soon after, they started to compose and produce electronic music. Their first project by the name “telepathic Frank” is a fusion of psychedelic rock, drum n bass, electro music. The love of combining analogue instruments and digital based sounds transformed them later on to Consciousness federation.
The music of Consciousness Federation features ambient, atmospheric melodies grafted with a ubiquitous space/cosmic feeling. Their sound is rich in elements deeply rooted in the 70’s psychedelic and progressive rock music, beautifully merged in today’s aesthetics and standards. They signed with the Synergetic Records which released an LP under the name “Plasma” and with Uxmal Records whitch released 2 EPs’ with titles: “Terrestrial Intelligence” and “Extrospection”. During this period, the’ve played in events and festivals such as Aurora Festival, Utopian Technologies (Void Network Festivals), Small Music Theatre(Athens), F.E.X (Culture House of Xanthi) and in radio broadcasts. Currently in collaboration with the Astronomy club of East Macedonia, they performed with planet observations by long rage telescopes . The live performances of consciousness federation varies from time to time, accompanied by analogue instruments, vocals and video projections giving a unique audio and visual guide of mind-expanding journeys to distant spaces.
