Alecto is a multimedia group consisting of Kakia Gkoudina (composition / electronics / visuals) and Kendra Wheeler (saxophones). Their work centers around experimenting with “storytelling” through combinations of visual and audio stimuli. Using the inherent characteristics of each medium, their aim is to develop the aesthetic and narrative experience of each work they compose and perform. A most important element of their artistic practice is drawing from “local” / personal experiences that transcend any one culture or person. This glocalization of ideas is critical to their output. This is why their work is consciously political, and is fully intended to be part of communal conversations.
