Niko Tzoukmanis holds a PhD in Mathematics, specialising in Functional Analysis and Calculus of Variations, he graduated in 2004 with the thesis °∆Local Minimizers of Singularly Perturbed Functionals with Nonlocal Term°«. Niko Tzoukmanis has also been producing music since 1995. In 2013, he released °∆Hope Is The Sister Of Despair°«, issued here for the first time on vinyl with 4 previously unreleased tracks. The album was made following the end of a relationship and taps into a rich vein of sequencer romanticism, from Tangerine Dream-obsessed-°∆Berlin School°« daydreamers to the whole nebula of music inspired by Warp°«s Artificial Intelligence series. It also looks forward, prefiguring the return today, in troubled times, to the comforting inner space of °∆90s-worshipping ambient techno.
