emdy-Catshag22 / cirqular-Prague

Anastasios Kokkinidis (aka emdy) is a composer, producer and musician, active at the era of electronic and electro-acoustic music scene.
His composition pieces, with a clear-cut experimental agenda, have managed to remain musically intense and emotional. An amalgamation of a detailed sound design taking on various music styles (from electronic and experimental to cinematic, classical, minimal, avant-garde and dance music), and several electronic-based music pieces. Engaged in contemporary fields of composition, emdy's music creates the sense of contrast between the experimentalist scene and music simplicity by stretching creativity and multiplicity in the production development.
He studied in Brighton, where he graduated in Digital Music with a specialisation in sound production and composition. He had previously studied classical piano (1986-1999) and Electronic Music (1996). In 2005, he completed a M.A. in Composing for Film and Television in London.
Nowadays, he is as a lecturer in Music Technology & Sound Engineering and he works as a freelance composer and producer. Involved in the electroacoustic medium, he became a member of HELMCA (Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association), as emdy. During the past ten years his music has been presented in live performances, installations and tape audio representations.
