Thanos Fotiadis was born in Thessaloniki. After graduating as a composer from the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki (2003) and as classical pianist from the Contemporary Conservatory of Thessaloniki (2004), he continued his studies in the Conservatory of Utrecht for his MA degree (2007). During his studies in the Netherlands he worked closely with many artists active in the field of Music Technology and Sonology. In the years after, he continued as a solo pianist performing the music of John Cage, Morton Feldman and Steve Reich. As a member of various bands, ranging from noise-rock to post-metal bands, he has toured and performed all over Europe as a guitar & bass player. The last 5 years he has concentrated in his own “Owlbites” project in order to fit his fascination with music experimentation and psychology into one uni-body of work. He currently lives and works in Utrecht, NL.
