Aftofono is the name under which Kiryakos Stefanis composes and produces music. It’s a Greek word play describing something which has its own voice, something which is audible without the use of any other means.
Kiryakos has been a musician, a composer and a producer for more than a decade. He studied classical and jazz guitar, as well as music technology and was a member of various bands spanning from blues-rock to progressive metal.
The music of Aftofono is a mixture of natural and synthesized sounds producing symphonic atmospheres, dark ambiances and low-tempo beats. Its distinct sound and character was established for the first time with the album Intellectronica, released on 2008.
Aftofono has since then collaborated with musicians like Tengu ni Naru, Paramorphonic, MentoR and Aris Siafas, as well as video artists like Eleni Tsimidou, Zonat and Kyriakos Nohoutidis to name a few, leading to music for performances, concerts, video-art etc.
