Escape Velocity is the Ambient project of Tilemachos Vlachos and Dimitris Theodoropoulos.
They both come from Corfu, Greece a place with classical music tradition where up to nowadays the cultural remains of the
Venetian Empire are apparent and have had a huge impact on the development of their sound.
They first met back at school at a very early age, but in 2007 they decided to reunite again and create the Escape Velocity project.
Dimitris is a musician, producer and composer with Chemical Engineering studies.
He started his musical studies at the Conservatoire of Corfu at the age of seven and has obtained his diploma in Clarinet.
He has played in many concerts and has collaborated with many musicians and Philharmonic Orchestras.
He has been involved in electronic music since 1998.
Tilemachos is a musician, producer and Dj who studied Sound Synthesis and Sound Design alongside his Civil Engineering studies.
He started his musical studies at the Conservatoire of Corfu at the age of twelve and has been playing the drums and percussion since then.
Tilemachos has been a member of many rock and funk bands but at the end of the nineties
he got fascinated by the electronic techno and trance scenes and started djing and exploring a different perspective of music composition,
which this time included synthesisers, samplers and drum machines.
Escape Velocity use both analog and digital tools in their production.
They experiment with the timbal characteristics of sounds, shifting tempos, the rhythms and time signatures
but the mathematical laws of harmony and proportion always distinguish their sound.
Melancholic Harmonic Ambient blended with Experimental Glitches, is what describes Escape Velocity's sound best.
