It is improvised sound.

By Maria Gregoriou

This Wednesday (yes we are getting in there early because next week is Valentine's week and plans must be made), get ready for some improvised music which will explore a whole world of possibilities and take us all on an unexpected journey in Nicosia.

The journey's leader (as it were) will be Andria Nicodemou on her vibraphone, while her special guests Savvas Savva on the piano and Alec Harper on the tenor saxophone will complete the three corners of this musical night.

Nicodemou, who is a local percussionist, improviser and composer, specialising mainly in the vibraphone, loves to play improvised music as it is "a composition in real time, taking risks and challenging oneself".

During the concert Nicodemou, along with Savva and Harper, will continue to explore music, take risks, and move forward into what the moment brings.

But let's get to know the main face behind the music. As mentioned above, Nicodemou's main focus as a musician is the vibraphone. She is a graduate of the Corfu University in Classical Percussion and also has a Master's degree in Contemporary Improvisation from the New England Conservatory in Boston.

She has been involved in diverse art projects with multimedia artists, dancers, actors, and visual artists at many festivals and theatres in Europe and America.
