Dimitris Papadatos (b.1981,USA) is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece.
The main concern in his work is an apposition of disparate elements that assume a re-appropriation of historically applied methodologies while questioning forms of empowering them. The biggest body of his work reflects issues as copyright, spirituality and originality, undergoing a constant state of transfiguration of its outsourcing.
His work has been presented in various international institutions and festivals from the Transmediale, the Athens Biennale, the Onassis Cultural Centre and Fasma Festival, to the Athens/Epidaure Festival, Cynetart Festival and the Greek National Theatre.
He has performed in venues and spaces such as Corsica Studios in London, Departamento in Mexico City, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Urban Spree and Echo Buecher in Berlin, Bios in Athens, Salon Des Amateurs in Dusseldorf ,MoE in Vienna and Détail Gallery in Paris among others while he has recorded broadcasts for stations such as NTS Radio, Radar Radio, dublab, Noods Radio and Resonance FM.
His music has been released on labels such as The Tapeworm, Infinite Waves, Phinery, Bokeh Versions, Inner Ear and Seagrave among others, with forthcoming releases on labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Anòmia, Speaker Footage, Bokeh Versions, Duppy Gun and more.
His releases have been featured in various magazines, websites and radio shows including Tiny Mix Tapes, Boomkat, The Ransom Note, Inverted Audio, Impose, Noisey, The Quietus, Trax Magazine ,BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, NTS Radio, WFMU, Rinse France, Resonance FM, Independent Music Podcast and Dublab to name a few.
