In 2015 the first electric lute is constructed on the island of Crete. The creator and designer, Dimitris Sideris, attempts a series of improvised music recordings in locations of exceptional acoustics, architectural structure and history. Affected by these features, the musician enters into a state of dialogue with each space, inspiring for sight specific compositions with the electric lute.
