Born in Athens, Greece, 1971. First degree in Electronic and Biomedical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. Master of Arts in Digital Music Technology at the University of Keele with Mike Vaughan and Rajmil Fishman. Ph.D. in Electroacoustic Composition at Bangor University with Andrew Lewis.
Composition with recorded and synthesized sound, sound design, live electronics, sound diffusion performance, tools for creative sonic manipulation, circuit bending, free improvisation, pop culture, instrument construction, transformations of form and essence, cross-genre stylistic studies and interdisciplinary practical research. Music for concert, theater, video, dance, installations and video games.
Using recording equipment and the modern electronic music studio I integrate many different types of sound material into works articulating a personal musical language. Employing live performance and sound synthesis techniques, sonic transformations and elaborate editing I experiment with concepts, degrees of control, stylistic, aesthetic and compositional approaches, as well as with the ideas of tension manipulation and resonance.
My electroacoustic works are being performed at international festivals and conferences. Teaching and writing about music and technology in Athens. I am a founding member of HELMCA (Greek Union of Composers of Electroacoustic Music, www.essim.gr)
