Hello! My name is Yannis. I am from Athens. I am an architect (Dr Jekyll by day!) and a music composer (Mr Hyde by night!) (I hope you know R.L. Stevenson's classic novel "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" or else you don't know what I am talking about!). I teach architectural drawing (by hand) and computer-aided design (CAD). As for my music, it is mostly ambient electronic with ethnic elements (with my synthesizers and other instruments) and ballads (with my guitar). For the last few years, I write music for dance-theatre performances based on Greek mythology and literature.
I lived in Los Angeles for 16 years (from when I was 24 until I was 40). I have travelled to Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, England, Russia and, of course, all over Greece and California!
