"Review of Live @ PAVED Arts"

"These three live tracksare marvels of minute sonic artifacts... testaments to the imagination-inducing powers of small sounds." - Disquiet (USA)


"Review of Delay Line Memories"

"Scant Intone is a project that is meant to explore the experimental possibilities of computers and other electronic devices. Occupying a minimalist territory, these short pieces make for a consistent listen despite the widely different techniques that are used. Scant Intone reminds me of the most abrasive Fennesz records combined with some Pita in an interesting claustrophobic space." - Indie Workshop (USA)


"Review of La Salle D'Attente"

"I have no idea who or what we are dealing with here... More of processing static, white and pink noise, feeding it off through a bunch of sound effects. Nice again, this violent form of drone music..." - Vital Weekly (NL)


"Review of performance with London Concrete"

"Atmosphere you could cut with a knife. Pushing listening out to the extremes of perception." - ILL FM (UK)


"Review of performance at Send + Receive Festival"

“Montreal’s Scant Intone, aka Constantine Katsiris, set up next... With his laptop resting on the floor, inches from the crowd, Katsiris swayed over his computer while providing an assortment of aquatic textures that rose and fell featuring well-crafted drones.” - Exclaim! (CA)


"Press release information for Live As Though Dead"

The dryest and subtlest wine of noise music... Sound planes that might be cousin territory somewhere between Iannis Xenakis and Christian Fennesz, where a fascinating breed of 'cute-noise' fairies hum entranced buzzing and bubbling tunes, rendering most delicately their harsh and granular environment." - BricoLodge (CA)

Bio

Scant Intone is the solo project of Canadian artist Constantine Katsiris dedicated to his explorations in modern audio. From stark minimalism to densely complex textures, his output incorporates elements of field recordings, raw data and digital sound synthesis. The compositions are experiments in abstract electronic music, with influences including ambient, lowercase, noise, glitch and drone. As a live performer, he has brought his sound to many notable venues, such as the Society for Arts and Technology [Montreal], Whitechapel Art Gallery [London] and Brut Konzerthaus [Vienna].

Constantine has been active in exploring the electronic arts since the early 1990s as a producer, designer and DJ. He was formerly based in Montreal where he was operating the Panospria label and coordinating events locally and abroad since 2002. During a period of over six years he was integral in organizing countless events, including the Textures deep-listening concert series for experimental, improvised and electronic music which ran for 25 editions. These events featured performances by artists from all across Canada as well as international artists from Sweden, Norway, Italy, Japan, USA and Mexico. This experience lead him to be involved with programming showcases for festivals such as Mutek and Suoni per il Popolo, both world-renowned. His own live performances are numerous over the past years, including many collaborations and improvisations with like-minded sound and video artists. Scant Intone has been showcased by many international festivals, including Cap Sembrat [Barcelona], Congresso di Musica Elettronica [Palermo], FILE Hipersonica [Sao Paulo], Mutek [Montreal], Suoni Per Il Popolo [Montreal], Send + Receive [Winnipeg], Lab.30 Electroconference [Augsburg] and Electro-Music [Philadelphia]. He has also shared the stage with Aidan Baker, Tim Hecker, Sawako, Hive Mind and Vromb, to name a few.
