Yannis Patoukas (1989) studied musicology (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 2014) and electroacoustic music composition (Institute of Sonology, Royal Conservatoire of the Hague, 2019). He is currently a research associate and guest teacher at the Institute of Sonology. In his music, he explores the different creative possibilities found at the intersections between experimental rock music of the 1960s and 1970s and electroacoustic music; with regard to studio practices and production techniques. When inside a recording studio, he usually follows a more improvisational workflow; welcoming mistakes, trusting random or open processes and always making the most of the physicality of any device in the vicinity. He is attracted by the “technical limitations” found in analogue technology and enjoys the performability of tape machines, mixing desks and voltage-controlled modular systems alongside other devices or instruments.
