In Situ is a journey through the universe of contemporary improvisational music. The starting point is the city of Thessaloniki during the ‘80s, an international crossroad attracting several musicians in the genre of free improvisation. We travel across Greece, Italy and Germany following the trails of these musicians, documenting their assorted perspectives on improvisation, sound, silence, life and art, revealing their creative methods and witnessing closely the very moment “In Situ” music comes to life.
Chryssa Tzelepi has worked in creative photography since 1993 and has had several solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad to her credit. Since 2004 she has been working as a director and producer and is also involved in organising the Experimental Film Festival Strange Screen.
