Manos Tsangaris has always worked to expand and refine the use of media in his composition and craft. His main focus is on how various human areas of perception are linked to one another in art works and how they can be developed so as to converge. Tsangaris has written pieces for conventional concert ensembles, but also writes literary texts and creates art works and installations. However, when these different media come together within one context, he is not concerned merely with arranging them as skilfully as possible; rather, the composer is principally interested in examining the intersections where such media combinations are possible in the first place. The originality of his approach makes him one of the most significant proponents of a new form of music theatre, an innovative artistic format combining sound, speech and setting (Patrick Müller)
