Yannis Michos is an Athens based sound artist. Largely influenced by the urban environment and its connection to the rural setting of his upbringing, as well as the social conditions that developed in each of these places independently, he considers noise as an initially flexible material which - after being moulded and solidified - can represent a multitude of emotions and ideas. After completing his studies at the Contemporary Music Research Centre, hosted by the Athens Conservatory, he composes and performs musical compositions, mainly influenced by musique concrète. He also creates sound installations incorporating self-made or circuit blended electronic devices, field recordings and various objects. (@yami.chos)
