Product Notes

ANDREAS GEORGIOU Andreas Georgiou composer and multi instrumentalist,was born in Famagousta Cyprus.He began his musical activities at the age of ten,with classical guitar studies and continued later with classical piano,classical and contemporary harmony,counterpoint,fugue and composition with composer Dimitris Dragatakis. Furthermore he studied Byzantine music at the National musik school of Simon Karras with precentor George Remoundos. His research,expanded in differend ethnomusicological idioms,such as African and classical Indian regions, playing traditional instruments like sitar,shahnay,tambura, african sanza,cretian mandura,pithkiayli of Cyprus,and small percussion. Georgious interest towards the polyrhythmic approach of the guitar,lead him to the design of differend multi-string acoustic guitar models,with 13,14,15,16 and 19 strings, all materialised by the Greek luthier Leonidas Vrachatis. Furthermore his research for non tempered scales,lead him to the design of an electric fretless guitar,which can create very special 'etherial' quality of sound,by the superimposition of electromagnetic fields. Georgiou has composed music for the Third program of the Greek National radio,for theatrical performances and dance theater. During the last 25 years he has been giving concerts in Cyprus,Greece,Holland,Hungary, Germany, Ireland, Russia, Argentina,solo,leading as well as participating in Jazz and Ethnic groups,such as 'Sansa Quartet','East-West Wind','Szabo Sandor Duo','Hermae','Embryo','Aeora', 'Trio Kutsukuta','Trias','Andreas Georgiou Ethnic Jazz Quintet'.
