Giannis A. Papaioannou (a.k.a. ION) is a Greek composer, music producer, and sound designer. Active in local discography since 1985, his participation in bands such as Rehearsed Dreams, Spider's Web, Raw, ION as well as the record productions of Elfish Records (1991-1995) establish him as one of the most active figures in the Greek independent scene.
In his solo sound explorations, he turns the laptop into a musical instrument and portable studio, which drives a chain of analog and modular synthesizers while as ION he has managed to create a very deep and personal sound: some original mix rich in minimalist allusions, ambient industrial drones, and dub-techno rhythmic precision.
His works have been presented in famous venues such as the Athens Concert Hall, the Onassis Foundation House, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and the Benaki Museum and have played in dozens of festivals in Greece and abroad. He has composed and performed original new soundtracks for two silent classic films, Nosferatu (1922) and The Great White Silence (1924) which were commissioned by the Athens International Film Festival. At the same time, Giannis A. Papaioannou is the founder and producer of the industrial group Mechanimal, which is still active today and continues to receive thrilling reviews in local and international press for its audiovisual action.
