Fani Konstantinidou is a composer / sound artist and researcher living and working in the Netherlands.
She is mainly interested in conceptual composition, sonic images and the awareness/imagination of the listener in electroacoustic music. Through her music she explores the power of space and time on each individual sound, especially as compositional tools that affect the perception of the listeners. She has a particular interest in the combination of computer generated sounds with physical sound sources. This year, she examines the possibilities of greek traditional instruments in contemporary music focusing on their integration with (live or not) electronics.
