As Θ (Theta), Themistoklis Altintzoglou employs metaphysics and biometrics to stimulate mental and physical reactions. The result is close to dark ambient with a noisy texture that flirts between dystopian crust punk and existential bl(e)ack metal. Θ uses any type of media that can lead to sound experiments that, even though thoroughly planned, allow the planned system to express probabilistic individuality. Θ develops sounds that are inspired by nature and technology, but mostly by the interaction and thresholds between the two and the dystopias this interaction can lead to. Θ has broad musical origins from mouldy hardcore punk to early experimentalists such as Xenakis and everything worthy in between. Θ originates from the city Drama, Northern Greece and is located in Tromsø, Northern Norway.
Parallel to playing in bands since 1996, Θ has started in 2010 with the first release coming out in 2013. Θ is also behind the side projects tjære, pangaion and karadere. Θ is part of glacial mass, metatag, isølatiøn, mass ejection, katorama and deathrise. Θ has been scoring for film and documentary, live scoring silent film, background music for podcasts, soundscapes and atmospherics for albums.
Θ is continuously working on new material and in parallel works on collaborations with various artists.
