About Stefan:

Stefanos is the music producer & composer of Zen Garden. He was born in Athens in 1979. He started playing the guitar at the age of 10 and he is self-taught. When he was 15 years old, he joined ‘Vice Human’ as a guitar player and he participated in their live shows and CD- LP recordings. Between 1995 and 1998 he played with several groups such as Glower, Agnoun, On-Off and others.
Since 2000 he practices on music technology (samplers, synthesizers, music production) and instrument learning and experimentation (percussion, strings, piano).
In 2003, Stefanos orchestrates and produces the “Mayas to the Atlantis” record by Tom Baton Kee (Native American flute Keeper), with whom he also performs live touring in Greece (percussion and guitar), as part of the Cultural Olympics.
Between 2004 and 2006 he participates in the (IEK) - college AKMI Music Technology competition and connected with PLANETWORKS record company.
Soon after that, collaborations with Dj Viton, Dallas, Mike& Stef, and others follow.
His love for theatre music and live orchestration begun in 2006, when he worked for the orchestration, sampling and sound design of the “Persians”, the famous ancient Greek drama by Aeschylos, presented by the National Theatre of Greece (directed by Lydia Koniordou, music by Takis Farazis). He followed the play all the way from Epidaurus ancient Theatre to the tour around Greece and New York (New York City Centre), playing live samples, percussions and strings.
In 2006-2007 he composes, orchestrates and produces music for the“Deva” Dance-Theatre performance,. directed by Silvia Macchi, of the Synergion of Arts dance group, in collaboration with Roxani Garefalaki. Together they also scored the soundtracks of short films 'Gaia' and 'Long Distance Drunk' (by Post Bukowski Project), the parts of the music orchestration for the documentary Chania/Ecotourism (directed by V. Kalaitzis).
Since 2007 he has also been collaborating with “Taki Street Percussion” music group and the “Afro-Cretan” Band by L. Grigoriou , doing sampling, production, playing guitars and keyboards in their live shows around Greece.
Én 2008 he composes music for the dance theatre production “Facts and Faculties” (produced by “Fygein Adynaton”, choreographed by Natasa Aretha).
In 2009 he cooperates with Takis Farazis in writing the music for the short film “of memory”, a film about the work of sculptor Venia Dimitrakopoulou (directed by F. Koutsaftis). In the same year he works as a sound engineer for the Athens and Epidaurus Festival in the production of “Ornithes” play (directed by S. Hatzakis, music by Minos Matsas).
He also contributed with sampling in theatre productions such as “Mana, Mitera, Mama” directed by S. Hatzakis (Veaki Theatre) and “Troades” (Theatre of Neos Kosmos).
In May 2010 he improvises live with both electronic and natural instruments for the dance theatre “Roes” for the Greek Choreographers’ Dance Festival.
Moreover Stefanos is involved with the making of sound design and music for tv-commercials, and short-films and as a member of the Tomako team, a visual productions group, he created sound design and soundtrack compositions for company presentations such as Nike and Heineken, as well as the audiovisual introductions of popular Greek artists live shows (Ploutarxos, Vertis).
Since 2007 Stefanos has been the main composer and producer of the band Zen Garden.

The (InterAxion Dub) project is the first fully length work of Vlastur. Influenced by all his beloved sounds from Dub to Dubstep trough Psy, Ambient, Drum n' Bass and Traditional Mediterranean sounds !
Vlastur MegaDrop is the live project of him. He performs his material with the help of 2 skilled musicians. Dark Elf (Synth, Fx, and Mixing/Master) and Spyro. K (Drums and Rythms)

You're ridiculous!
The world knows that i works there, did not I did the festival.
And all the friends who play in this event, they know very well if it was my fault.
For this, Look at your job and live on your blackness.

Uforica025 to be honest Aura has nothing to do with organization of Aurora festival.
He was only responsible to be in touch with artists.
We really would like to help and resolve this argument.

Usually i don't make comments but when I see ridiculous comments by ridiculous people it is time to make some..
Ïberon don't be suprized with the audacity of some promoters and specifically on this one..Your audacity is worst and bigger cause you don't have the guts to find the owner and organizer of Aurora festival and make your complaints to him and noô to those who actually worked hard to keep it alive and not finished earlier.Unfortunately i'm sad and angry that there are scumbags like you and slander our scene and instead of trying to do something good they have audacity to filled it with dirt and scummy vibes!!
Everyone knows who you are and what you do as a promoter at Aurora 2008...so stop being so stupid and jerk and don't underestimate the perception of people !!
If you have some respect to artists(because you are an artist too) and some are friends of you might be better to apologize and not to offend them public .. Too bad because it shows that you aren't professional and you don't deserve to belong in this scene..and this appears!!

I had explained many times what was happened at aurora 2008.
If you're not follow the posts about it, stop saying bulshit and mostly withowt know me personaly, but just from things you heard!
From the other hand, i get bored and tired talking all those years about how shity the scene became from some assholes who care only about bussiness and profit.
I realized that i can't do nothing about to bring back the real spirit!
So, be happy with your scene that you made it like a big Skyladiko style...
