Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases “The Nebula Voyager” Album Exploring Sounds From The Outer Space!

For Immediate Release

Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases “The Nebula Voyager” Album Exploring Sounds From The Outer Space!

An album of 19 Spaced-Out compositions inspired by Astronomy and artists such as Tangerine Dream, Hans Zimmer, Steve Hillage and John Carpenter

Athens, Greece – Experimental musician and author, Billy Yfantis, releases his 5th album entitled “The Nebula Voyager.” A nebula is a gathering of interstellar clouds that forms a unique body (which can consist of cosmic dust, hydrogen, helium, molecular clouds; possibly as ionized gases). The great majority of Nebulas are hundreds of light-years in diameter. Billy Yfantis explores musically the “Nebula” concept by composing music inspired from the formation of existing nebulas as they are described in official astronomical catalogues.

The new album features 19 instrumental tracks including “City Lights” which was performed at the online edition of the Mrož festival 2020 and a 2021 remix of the previously released track “The Mysterious Trip.” The dreamy atmosphere of the album was created by using the Sound Design recording technique through the use of both hardware and software synthesizers. If you are familiar with cinematic soundtracks and music styles such as Avant-Garde, Krautrock, Experimental and Ambient, then you are definitely in the spirit of this release!

Billy Yfantis commented on the release: “The main scope of the album was to explore Astronomy beyond the popular science fiction concept. The 16 tracks of the album (except remixes and the festival performance) refer to real Nebulas that have been recorded in official astronomical catalogues by famous scientists. If you look for information about these Nebulas while listening to the album, then your listening experience will be an augmented one.” Billy Yfantis plans to experiment with new instruments and technologies for the recording of his 6th full album, with a release schedule in late 2022. Stay tuned for more information!

Billy has been working on music since the late 1990s by experimenting with tape mixing and sound design. Billy is playing digital keyboards, but prefers to express his artistic dream through the electronic sounds that come from unusual machines. He has experimented with the recording of vacuum cleaners, electric blenders and other strange sounds that have resulted in musical releases. Moreover, Billy has authored books on music, business and science while from times to times he speaks about the electronic governance at scientific conferences all over Europe.

Famous Quotes (What Others Have Said)
Krautrock legend Harald Grosskopf (Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze, Cosmic Jokers): “I always like electronic music made by younger musicians who consequently follow their personal instinct, rather than trying to copy what’s already been made in the past, in the spirit of: Whenever you meet Buddha kill him. Keep on tracking Billy!”

Tom McLoughlin (Director of the movie “Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives”): “I really dug his music!! VERY cool stuff!!”

Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep): “I like the track ‘Waiting for the battle.’ Great riff. I can see this as soundtracks to Psycho – punk movies and the like.”

Bobby Borg, (Music Business Author, Consultant, Professor): “This is fkn bad ass music that everyone needs to hear… imagine the coolest meditation music out there and the coolest sci-fi movie soundtrack rolled into one! Stream it and trip out today.”

Steve Whitfield (Producer and engineer of The Cure, The Mission UK): “This music is crying out to be used in films but at the same time it’s great to just sit back listen and immerse yourself in them without any moving images and let your imagination run wild!”

Snowy Shaw (ex-King Diamond, Therion, Mercyful Fate): “I didn’t know what to expect when I had this album sent to me by the composer Billy Yfantis. To be perfectly honest, 9 times out of 10 when people send me their new album it makes me feel a bit uneasy and awkward. Firstly because I don’t listen an awful lot to contemporary music and secondly, even less to other metal & hard rock artists due to lack of interest and I don’t wanna hurt their feelings. I don’t mean that in any rude, disrespectful or arrogant way, but I’m into creating my own music, not so much into consuming music of my peers. However, this was something entirely different. I’m not even sure it’s considered music, but it’s the kind of atmospheric and meditative type of sounds that I’ve been listening a helluva lot over the past few years to try relax and cope with my stressful, turbulent life, constantly on the verge of being burnt out. That being said, I liked it and it made me calm, mindful and sleepy. Presumably the worst kind of reaction my metalhead peers would wanna hear about their new album but in this case it’s probably the best sort of compliment one could get.”

Inspired By The Universe And Tempted By the Sci-Fi Culture, Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases The Album “Noises from the Outer Space”

6 evolving soundscapes with a duration over 60 minutes in the music style of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno

Athens, Greece – Experimental musician and author Billy Yfantis, releases his 3rd Sci-Fi/Space album entitled “Noises from the Outer Space”. The album features 6 instrumental tracks composed by having in mind the atmosphere of Sci-Fi movies and the science of Astronomy. The Spaced Out vibes of the album mix perfectly with the evolving tonality of the music and create an Avant-garde trip to the universe. The album was composed and recorded in Athens, Greece by Billy Yfantis who explored musically several virtual synthesizers mainly used for cinematic Sound Design. Each track represents the aesthetic and sonic perception of Space from the composer’s point of view, consequently the final result sounds as close as possible to the soundtrack of a classic Sci-Fi movie.

The cinematic atmosphere of Billy’s music has created positive feedback from important professionals of the music industry. Steve Whitfield (Producer and engineer of The Cure, The Mission UK) commented upon listening to the music of Billy Yfantis for the first time: “This music is crying out to be used in films but at the same time it’s great to just sit back listen and immerse yourself in them without any moving images and let your imagination run wild!”

Noises from the Outer Space Track list:
1. Astral Noise
2. Cosmic Noise
3. Galactic Noise
4. Interstellar Noise

Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases Sci-Fi/Space Album “Entering the Solar System”

For Immediate Release

Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases Sci-Fi/Space Album “Entering the Solar System”

9 Songs For The 9 Planets Of The Solar System and One track featuring original sounds from Mars! 

Athens, Greece – Experimental musician and author Billy Yfantis, releases the Sci-Fi/Space album entitled “Entering the Solar System”. The album features 9 instrumental tracks composed for the 9 planets of the Solar System, plus 1 track called “Landing” consisting of re-worked sounds that were originally recorded on the planet of Mars by NASA. The album was composed and recorded in Athens, Greece by Billy Yfantis who used a mix of virtual instruments and field recordings. Each track represents the sonic aesthetic perception of each planet while “Landing” is the re-editing of sounds created by InSight’s robotic arm as its camera scanned the surface of Mars.

The Solar System was formed 4.6 billion years ago from the collapse of an enormous interstellar cloud. The majority of the system’s mass consists of the Sun along with the other 8 planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. The whole scientific concept was a major influence for Billy Yfantis who is deep into Science since he is an active researcher of the University of West Attica. Billy commented on the new release: “Although my Ph.D. research is on a different field, Astronomy and Space have always been my passion. I believe that it was time to explore Space musically through the path of the virtual music technology.”

“Entering the Solar System” Tracklist:
1. Earth
2. Jupiter
3. Mars
4. Mercury
5. Neptune
6. Saturn
7. Sun
8. Uranus
9. Venus
10.  Landing

Experimental Musician BILLY YFANTIS Releases New Music And Video

For Immediate Release

Experimental Musician BILLY YFANTIS Releases New Music And Video

Athens, Greece – Experimental musician and author Billy Yfantis, reveals a new digital single entitled “The Mysterious Trip.” The song is an exploration of the analog synth sound as it was defined by artists such as the Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Klaus Schulze and other pioneers of the experimental electronic music. The recording of the song took place in Athens, Greece during a mysterious and trippy live session.

Billy commented on the new release: “After the experimentation with strange sounds and machines, I decided to invest time and effort in straight edge electronic music. A late midnight live session close to a noisy Athenian road, led to the decision about this recording. It is a mysterious trip to isolate yourself from the surrounding noise and focus on your emotions.”

Billy Yfantis also released a new video so as to visualize aesthetically the analog synth sounds of his new track. The promotional video deals with the concept of the analog machines from the 1970s era.

Greek Music Artist Billy Yfantis’s Experimental Music Made Of A Vacuum Cleaner

For Immediate Release

Greek Music Artist Billy Yfantis’s Experimental Music Made Of A Vacuum Cleaner

Greece – Greek experimental music artist Billy Yfantis continues experimenting with unconventional sounds that operate as a medium to create electronic music. This time the inspiration comes from a vacuum cleaner, an object which tends to be more useful than you may imagine. Billy recorded the physical sound of his vacuum cleaner and also embedded a futuristic synthesizer to create the composition “Dust Not Found”. The whole result sounds like a psychedelic trip into Krautrock and John Cage’s controversial music.

The track was recorded a few hours after the arrival of 2017 when everybody was outside celebrating the new year. Billy stated regarding his new composition: “I prefer to record the sounds made of objects that end up in the recycle bin of the houses, but boost a personal excitement to re-use them as a medium to create music. Music creation as perceived by most creators is actually a Matrix made by labels and managers. The real challenge is to read between the conventional lines of music commercialism.”

Billy started recording sounds from the late 1990s by experimenting with video game sounds and environmental soundscapes. The next recordings are already on the way and there are also plans for the live performance of the whole concept.

Billy Yfantis holds an MSc in Information Technology (University Of The West Of Scotland) and an MSc in Information Security (Luleå University of Technology), moreover he is the author of scientific articles published worldwide. Technology as a medium and music as a mission led him to experiment with unorthodox sounds and machines since the late 1990s.

Billy Yfantis is playing electric guitar and synthesizer, but prefers to express his artistic dream through the electronic sounds that come from electronic machines. As an electronic musician, he started experimenting with tape mixing and sound design in the 1990’s, although the first official releases arrived later. In 2003 he released the demo “Look What The Cat Mixed In” under the project name of Hanoi Cocks which included remixes of famous Glam songs along with the use of cult movie samples. That demo gained publicity from the local Greek press by being voted as one of the best demos of the month at the Greek magazine Metal Hammer. In 2004, Hanoi Cocks released a second demo with more remixes and personal material.

After spending a decade in science and music studies, he returned officially in the discography by releasing the single “The Missing Link” in 2015. The music style of Billy Yfantis varies from electronica to experimental / avant garde music and he has released four singles until now. Nowadays, Billy experiments with physical sounds of everyday machines such as vacuum cleaners and electric blenders. He considers music as a medium to recycle sounds that end up in the waste bin of the nature instead of becoming an innovative way of entertainment.
