TETTTIΞ (with triple t, pronounced tétix) was born in 2017 on the initiative of Michalis Paraskakis. Its first performance took place in mid 2018, in the small, underground venue Zp87, in the centre of Athens. Since then, it has performed in the Onassis Cultural Centre [Athens], TV Control Centre [Athens] and participated in the last feature film of director Nikos Kornilios “Where the worlds cross”.
ΤΕΤΤΤΙΞ is a team of young musicians, brought together by their love for contemporary/new music, after their long friendship and collaboration. Consisting of 13 musicians, it has a unique formation: flute, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, accordion, piano, guitar, harp, percussion, double bass and 3 composers. TETTTIΞ aims at the creation of new repertoire for its bizarre instrumentation, from young and established composers from around the world. Meanwhile, as a genuine child of its era, TETTTIΞ is flirting with improvisation and other music genres, pop, rock, jazz, rembetiko, electronic, traditional, to name a few.
