Xaver Xylophon | Moving Silence

These days Xaver Xylophon is making animated short films but in his early years he wanted to become a composer for film music and that's why he convinced his parents to get piano lessons. Even if interests have shifted since then, Xaver still plays the piano and sometimes there comes the opportunity to accompany one of the ongoing projects with some homemade music.

Αυτές τις μέρες ο Xaver Xylophon φτιάχνει ταινίες μικρού μήκους – κινουμένων σχεδίων, αλλά όταν ήταν μικρός ήθελε να γίνει συνθέτης για μουσική ταινιών και γι’ αυτό έπεισε τους γονείς του να παρακολουθήσει μαθήματα πιάνου.  Παρόλο που τα ενδιαφέροντα του έχουν αλλάξει από τότε, ο Xaver συνεχίζει να παίζει πιάνο και κάποτε έχει ευκαιρίες να συνοδεύσει ένα από τα εν εξελίξει έργα με «σπιτική» μουσική. 

Xaver Xylophon will be performing to the films "Kurzschluss" and "Zyklus 1" by himself on Friday 14 December.

On Saturday 15 December Xaver Xylophon will  be performing to the film "Jellyfishes" by Matthias Fritsch

Νιώθω πως η απόλυτη χαρά αφορά μόνο μια αγέλη γουρουνιών.
I feel that absolute joy relates only to a herd of pigs.

Ζήτα και  θα σου δοθεί
Ask and you shall receive

Spyros Touliatos | 65 λεπτά!

Θέλω να κάνω το καλό, αλλά δεν θέλω να κάνω θόρυβο.
Γιατί νιώθω ότι ο θόρυβος δεν κάνει καλό και το καλό δεν κάνει θόρυβο.

I want to do good, but I do not want to make noise.
Because I feel that noise does not do good and good does not make noise.
