Every incident is connected to a specific sound. Dissolving the compound opens new    perspectives. Abstractions expose that the present view is merely a modifiable convention.

Dos Plus is the audio visual collaboration of filmmaker/visual artist Eleni Ampelakiotou and the experimental improve Electric-Guitar-Duo William Bravo Duo. Together they perform multisensorial interferences between narrative abstract fiction and instant improvised compositions to create a visual and sonic resonating experience.

The William Bravo Duo explore the sound map of their diverse musical origins, clashing their influences from the free jazz improvised music scene with the deconstructive energy of the avant-garde progressive pop movement performing as an electrified experimental post free noise jazz guitar duo based in Berlin.

In their musical dialogue and radical improvisations, Spanish guitarist Antonio Bravo and German film composer and guitarist Wilhelm Stegmeier deconstruct complex wavering noises to hallucinating hypnotic feedback that explode into improvised action paintings of colourful contemporary psychedelic soundscapes.

In their recent collaboration with filmmaker/visual artist Eleni Ampelakiotou, the musical energy resonates with visual experimental storytelling deconstructing narrative structures and clichés to a distinctive synaesthetic audiovisual experience.
