BIOGRAPHY

 

Konstantinos Karathanasis (born in Athens, Greece) is an electroacoustic composer who draws inspiration from modern poetry, artistic cinema, abstract painting, mysticism, Greek mythology, and the writings of Carl G. Jung and Joseph Campbell. Equally interested in acousmatic, soundscape, instrument and live electronic genres, he carefully orchestrates elements of sound objects processed in various degrees and unprocessed field recordings in his compositions. Clear music structures with identifiable sections and formal functions play also an important role in his compositions.

His electro-acoustic compositions have been performed at such festivals as ICMC, ICEM, NYCEMF, SEAMUS, SYNTHESE, Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, Musica Viva, BIMESP, SICMF, Sonorities, NAISA, EMM, and Third Practice among others. His music has received recognition in a number of international competitions, including the International Competition of Electro-acoustic Music in Bourges, Musica Nova in Prague, SEAMUS/ASCAP, Musica Viva in Lisbon, and SIME in Lille. Recordings of his music are released by SEAMUS, ICMA, Musica Nova, Innova and HELMCA. He holds a Ph.D. in Music Composition from the University at Buffalo and is currently an Associate Professor of Composition & Music Technology at the University of Oklahoma.
