Costinho


    Costis Zouliatis was born in Athens, in 1979 and up to now he has kept himself busy only with music and images. He studied Music at the Ionian University (Corfu), where he is also a Ph.D. Candidate (under the subject of the composer Jani Christou's life and philosophical thought). He is the founding member of several musical bands (Night On Earth, The Rembetators, Paracroussis a.o.) for which he composes music and participates as a musician and improviser, while he also gives solo piano and guitar performances.

    He has contributed in theatrical performances as a composer and musical supervisor, composed music for short films and documentaries and directed/produced short video films and music videos, including a short portrait of contemporary Greek composer Dimitris Dragatakis. His study in cinematography concerns the work and teachings of Ed Wood, Andrei Tarkovsky and Caravaggio and a staggering masterclass of cinematographer Christopher Doyle, as well.

    As a researcher, he worked for years on the work and life of composer Jani Christou with highlight being the creation of the film Anaparastasis: life & work of Jani Christou (2012). He has also published the following essays: A musicological approach to John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme' and its importance as an expression of spiritual passion (2000), Politics and music in the works of Luigi Nono (2003), Symbolism in Alban Berg's music (2004), Jani Christou - T.S. Eliot - Peter du Sautoy: Seven letters for Six songs (2010 - published in the journal of Greek Music Workshop of the Ionian University), Jani Christou: Alchemist of Dreams (2010 - published in the journal Difono).
