"Auriphone is a landscape of contrasting qualities and values. Passing from vast to small, distant to intimate, and disorganisation to organisation, Auriphone seeks a final way out of dissent. Consonant and dissonant harmonic relationships and transfers from composure to disturbance seem to enhance the disagreement. Through all these contrasting values Auriphone represents internal processes of the spirit. Auriphone is an amplification of the soul. The sound material is based on recordings of cymbals and human utterances, and synthesised sounds have also been used. A variety of techniques, including sound convolution, cross-synthesis, granular synthesis and combination filtering provided the final sounds used in the composition."
Born in Piraeus, he first studied piano and music theory. He then studied at the Department of Music Studies of the Ionian University, focusing on the field of composition of Electroacoustic Music and Music Technology. In 2002, he completed his studies in Electroacoustic Music composition, at postgraduate level, at CITY UNIVERSITY in London, where he obtained the degree with distinction.
A key part of his artistic work is in music production, composition of electronic music and sound design for the Performing Arts. Since 2004 he has been systematically composing music for theater, while he has participated in documentaries and short films. He has collaborated with important actors and dance groups in Greece, but also with important cultural institutions such as the Onassis Foundation Cultural Center “STEGI” (2014-15), the Athens & Epidaurus Festival (2017) and the Cultural Center of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (2020).
In 2006 he started his collaboration as a Laboratory Associate (Sound Engineering and Music Technology courses) at the Department of Sound Technology and Musical Instruments of the former Technological Institute of the Ionian Islands, where in July 2018 he was elected in the rank of the Assistant Professor. Today, he continues as a faculty member in the Department of Music Studies of the Ionian University while he is practicing as a music producer in studios in Athens and as a sound engineer in concerts.
His works have been performed in Greece and abroad. He was granted a scholarship from the Lillian Voudouri Foundation.
