Biography

Alexis Georgopoulos is a San Francisco-based artist, writer and musician, though he hesitates to use such terms, especially the latter. As a member of rhythmic experimentalists Tussle and OutFolk collective The Alps, Alexis Georgopoulos has toured the world and released critically acclaimed work. He’s performed in gallery spaces such as DEITCH PROJECTS (Manhattan & Brooklyn), MoMA (San Francisco), JACK HANLEY GALLERY (SF), LUGGAGE STORY GALLERY (SF), ADOBE BOOKSHOP (SF) and the FRIEZE ART FAIR (London). He’s composed music for sound installations; curated art programs which have included artists such as SIMON EVANS, JO JACKSON and CHRIS JOHANSON; written on Visual Art, Design and Music for international Arts & Culture publications such as i-D, Tokion, The Blow Up and Vice, Sleazenation, San Francisco Guardian and Anthem; taken part in various avant-garde workshops; and had numerous deejay residencies. This site is devoted to his most recent project: ARP. An attempt to return electronic music to a less-sterile time, Alexis spent a few weeks in Spring 2006 improvising with analog synthesizers, pulse machines, flute, strings, pedals and an old 4track cassette recorder. Nearly all the music was recorded live. Very few loops were used - in fact, only one. This gesture was meant to bring back some of the rough (re: natural) edges Alexis feels have been lost in so much “Electronic Music” today.
