Marinos Koutsomichalis

Active internationally in both academic and non academic milieus, MK is being composing and performing exploratory sound (and sometimes visual) art since the mid ’00s using a variety of mediums – computers, programming languages, acoustic instruments / ensembles, analogue electronics, loudspeakers, domestic appliances, environmental sounds or photography amongst others. He is mainly interested in how sonic/visual phenomena manifest in the space-time-consciousness complex and how he can create aesthetically intriguing artworks based on such manifestations as mediums in themselves. He has no interested in expressing or representing anything – his art aims rather at fulfilling space and at essentially stimulating one’ s state of being instead.

Hitherto, he has released several solo albums that were met with enthusiasm by critics, in labels such as the Brtish Entr’ acte or his own agxivatein. He has exhibited works of his worldwide in acclaimed galleries, academias, festivals, churches, independent venues, etc. He has collaborated with Z’EV, Francisco Lopez, Marc Behrens, Kasper T. Toeplitz, Greg Haines, the Red Note Ensemble, N. Kyriazopoulos and others in various projects. He is member various research centres and institutions like the CMRC (founded by I. Xenakis), HELMCA, FKL and others. He has lectured at the Technical University of Crete and at the Centre of Contemporary Music Research (KSYME). He is stilll undertaking his Ph.D. in the Music Research Centre, University of York under the supervision of Dr Tony Myatt.
