MARIA KAOUTZANI

I am a composer from Limassol, Cyprus, based in Chicago. Color and texture are central elements in my work. Through texture and orchestration I enjoy exploring the ways in which a number of instruments, no matter how diverse they are coloristically, can function as a unified entity that evolves over time. Voice and text are significant in my work: many of my pieces are based on poetry or literature, while voice is often used in my music in various roles.

 

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago and hold a Master of Music Theory and Composition from New York University Steinhardt.
