Yannis Kyriakides

From a young age Kyriakides was immersed in music, learning to play the violin, piano, and singing as a chorister in the English choral tradition. He composed his first pieces at the age of eight, that were performed by his choir and school orchestra. He received a music scholarship to continue his studies at a specialised secondary school. At eighteen he travelled for a year in Greece and the Middle East, studying Eastern traditional music, and learning the Ud. He continued his education with musicology studies at the University of York and later composition with Louis Andriessen and Dick Raaijmakers at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
As a composer and sound artist, Kyriakides looks for ways of creating new forms and hybrids of media that problematize the act of listening. The question as to what music is actually communicating is a recurring theme in his work and he is often drawn to the relation between perception, emotion, and language and how that defines our experience of sound. In recent years, his work has been exploring different relations between words and music, both in concert compositions and installations, through the use of systems of encoding information into sound, synthesizing voices, and projecting text to music. The latter work has led to about 30 music text films that play on the idea of imagined or inner voice.



In 2000, he won the International Gaudeamus Composition prize for his composition a conSPIracy cantata. The CD, Wordless, received an honorary mention in the Prix Ars Electronica 2006, and his recent CD, Antichamber, won a 2011 French Qwartz Electronic music award. Other prizes include the Dutch Toonzetters prize for best composition of 2010 for Paramyth, the Willem Pijper Prize for Dreams of the Blind, and the International Rostrum of Composers Prize 2014 for Words and Song Without Words.
