Kostis Kilymis has been making music since 2006. He explores electronically produced sounds, enviromental stimuli, electroacoustic phenomena and the manipulation and arrangement of pre-recorded material. He produces records based on collage and arrangements of sound, though live he prefers to improvise on a no-input mixing board setup. He performs with others, though he usually records alone. Since 2009, he has started using the moniker "Syndromes" for his solo work.
He started to write music as Larry Gus (larigas: greek for throat, larynx) in 2006, inspired by the rural enviroment of his hometown (Veria, Imathia). His early influences have been Creedence Clearwater Revival and Minor Threat. He had been member of the seminal bass and drums duo Ginger, fusing hardcore punk aesthetics and hip hop beats. When Ginger broke up, he started composing music for TV commercials, which were in fact his first works as Larry Gus. Later on, he got his name due to some chaotic live perfomances, incorporating live looping techniques in an improvised pop manner.
