Michalis Moschoutis is a composer, curator and educator based in Athens, Greece. Driven by the desire to observe and explore sound in all its guises, Moschoutis’s work calls for physical and mental engagement with the environment and the sounding objects. From live noise shows, to recordings of empty churches, and from eclectic festival programming, to music teaching, his output remains informed by the somatic and material nature of music.

Moschoutis has toured Europe and has worked among others with Xavier Charles, Aki Onda, Ingi Garðar Erlendsson, Danae Stefanou, Giannis Kotsonis, Acid Baby Jesus, Thalia Ioannidou, Sofia Labropoulou, Ilan Manouach and Spyros Polychronopoulos. He has collaborated with Parisian filmakers’ collective Nominoë on a series of expanded cinema performances and has composed the score for the award winning film Kismet. Although primarily a guitarist, in 2019 he extensively performed the Halldorophone onstage and in the studio for the score of Georgis Grigorakis’s feature length film DIGGER.

In 2013, with the support of Onassis Stegi, he initiated INMUTE, a festival opening up shared spaces between cinema, sound art and experimental music, commissioning new audiovisual works and performances. Together with orchestra conductor Ilan Volkov he curates Tectonics Athens and since 2018, he is the curator of Borderline, the annual experimental music festival of Onassis Stegi.
