Biography

I am a Lecturer in Bournemouth University's Creative Technology Department, a member of EMERGE Experimental Media Research Centre and Centre for Games & Music Technology Research here at Bournemouth University. I am music technologist, composer, sound practitioner, and researcher. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Music Informatics from Ionian University in Greece, a MusM in Electroacoustic Composition & Interactive Media from The University of Manchester in the UK and a PhD in Music Technology from De Montfort University.

My work and research falls in the area of sensory ethnography with sound and the role of recorded speech, and soundscapes in the way new artistic musical works and narratives can be created. Also, to the role of artistic work in raising awareness about the importance of cultural heritage. Special importance is placed on the synergy of soundscape recordings, verbal narration, technology and the opportunities provided by the electroacoustic studio. I joined Bournemouth University in January 2016, where he is a Lecturer in Music & Audio Technology.
