NMR Artist Spotlight Exclusive: Greek Classical Film Composer George Kalyvas

What is your story?

I was born and grew up in Athens Greece and musically I started with piano lessons at the age of 9 which lasted for four years as I didn’t like the environment where I had to study just for the annual exams. I thought at the time that music was more of a discovery from inside out rather than learning how to place your fingers at the keyboard and play what you see. Of course when I grew up and at the age of 19 I understood what is the meaning of a composition and I was intrigued, as I started guitar, music theory and music harmony lessons where I obtained my first degree in music, by the story of each composition and about the mechanics of it.

I later decided to study on my own counterpoint, fugue and to start analysing scores from quartets to symphonies of the great classical composers. Now I am living in the UK and I am pursuing a career in the music industry. I already have scored 3 short films, 2 feature films and I am writing songs in a more orchestral style.
