Selected to participate in the Prize Phonologia 2012-2013 for electronic music, at San Fedele Musica in Milan.
Performance of the short electroacoustic piece ”Elle Loge La Folie” at Sound Art Festival Berlin 2012 as part of the 60×60 (2012) Voice Mix project. ”Elle Loge La Folie” is a short electroacoustic piece after Roberto Matta’s painting with the same title. My intention was to use as many different sources as possible in a very limited duration without losing the individuality of each source. Mixing and editing of the various sounds aims to create a kind of surrealistic “biomorphism” of sound objects and dissolve boundaries between artificial, natural and biological forms in a similar way that Matta’s painting does with visual objects.
Lefteris Papadimitriou is a Greek composer and performer. He is currently studying for a PhD in composition at the University of Huddersfield with the support of a scholarship from the Huddersfield contemporary music festival and the Centre of Research in New Music. Compositional interests include the exploration of the notion of ”hybridity” between instrumental and acousmatic media, psychological mapping of aural signals on conceptual and physical musical spaces, employment of surrealistic and visual techniques, information networks and montage. In 2006 he won the international Gaudeamus Prize with his composition for piano and orchestra, titled “Black and White”. He has studied composition with Iannis Ioannidis and he is a graduate of the music department of the University of Athens. He has written many compositions for acoustic instruments and electronic media that have been performed in various countries and also performs live electronic and improvised music.
