Yiorgis Sakellariou

Yiorgis Sakellariou is an electroacoustic music composer. Having a background in classical and Mediterranean folk music, he came to develop his personal language during the early '00s. Since then he has been active internationally being responsible for solo and collaboration albums, having composed music for short films and theatrical performances, leading workshops and ceaselessly performing his music around the globe.

His practice is founded on the digital manipulation of environmental recordings. His palette of sounds is all encompassing; from vibrating rail-tracks to refrigerators' static, and from noisy waterfalls to the humming of insects. His current research as a PhD student at Coventry University focuses on the relation between electroacoustic music and the use of sound in ecstatic religious practices.

Yiorgis Sakellariou is a member of the Athenian Contemporary Music Research Centre and the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association. Since 2004 he has curated the label Echomusic http://mechaorga.wordpress.com/
