*EXTRA ACTIVITIES* (Optional)

As a musician, deeply dedicated in music and sound art, i decided to organize and propose some additional activities :)

Here some ideas for the lovers of music and sound explorers:

- Music gatherings; we'll get our instruments, find a beautiful spot down town and play some music, getting know better each other :)

- Music concerts; we can organize and go to a music event or a concert. In this city there are REALLY a lot of events happening and as a musician i always stay tuned ;)

- Soundwalks; we can take our Digital recorders and cameras and walk through silent neighbourhoods or natural landscapes and record the sounds and the images of the city. We 'll have much fun doing this while we can later process the material and have a great document of the city - even exchange the experience with other travelers in other cities!

Here some activities and Soundwalks i have organizing in my Studio, in the village of Epanomi, just 30' from the city:

Nikos ha sido un gran acompañante de viaje por thessaloniki haciendo de nuestra visita un paseo entre amigos. el paseo que hemos dado juntos se adaptaba a lo que como visitantes y observadores del mundo necesitábamos. muy recomendable si eres de dejarte llevar.
