Dr Pavlos Antoniadis (PhD University of Strasbourg-IRCAM, MA University of California, San Diego, MA University of Athens) is a pianist, musicologist and technologist from Korydallos, Athens, Greece, currently based in France. He performs complex contemporary and experimental music, studies embodied cognition and develops tools for technology-enhanced learning & performance. He is currently researcher at EUR -ArTeC, Paris 8 and following up at the Berlin Institute of Technology (TU-Audiokommunikation) as a Humboldt Stiftung scholar. He collaborates with the Interaction-Son-Musique-Mouvement team at IRCAM and he is a member of the Laboratory of Excellence GREAM, Université de Strasbourg, where he also taught seminars on computer music and contemporary performance practice.

As a pianist, he has performed in Europe, North & South America and Asia with the new music ensembles Work in Progress-Berlin, Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, Phorminx, ERGON, Accroche Note, as well as a soloist with the Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra. He has participated in recordings for Mode (2015 German Recording Critics Award / Deutscheschallplattenkritikspreis) and Wergo records. As a soloist, he has worked with composers Mark Andre, Helmut Lachenmann, Brian Ferneyhough, Wolfgang Rihm, Tristan Murail, Richard Barrett, Walter Zimmermann, Wieland Hoban, and has premiered solo piano works by James Erber, Nicolas Tzortzis, Andrew R. Noble, Luis Antunes Pena, Dominik Karski, Laurentiu Beldean and others. His programming features the most complex contemporary works, extremes of physicality, live electronics, multimedia and musical theatre, often in eclectic dialogue with ancient repertoire from Cabezón to Bartók. He is also active in free improvisation with the composer and improviser Panos Ghikas (London) and has collaborated with the physical theatre group Zero Point (Athens).

As a researcher, Pavlos was a Musical Research Residency fellow at IRCAM in 2014, where under the supervision of Frédéric Bevilacqua and Dominique Fober (Grame, Lyon) he developed GesTCom (Gesture Cutting through Textual Complexity), a sensor-based environment for the gestural control and analysis of complex piano notation, for example of works by Xenakis or Ferneyhough. His research record includes fifteen (15) publications in English, German and French and over fifty (50) talks and lecture-performances in several institutions (HfM Dresden, INMM Darmstadt, IRCAM Paris, Orcim Gent, Goldsmiths London, Trinity Dublin, Aristoteleio Thessaloniki, Cité de la Musique et de la Danse Strasbourg, Hong Kong University, Yamanashi Gakuin University Kofu, Wocmat Taiwan, LEAD Dijon, SARC Belfast, UdK Berlin) and international conferences.

Pavlos holds degrees in piano performance (Piano Diploma, Nakas Athens; Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag;  MA, UC San Diego) and musicology (MA, Athens National University, PhD Université de Strasbourg in co-direction with the  IRCAM, under Pierre Michel and Frédéric Bevilacqua). He has studied on LabEx GREAM, IRCAM, Fulbright, UC San Diego, Nakas conservatory, Internationale Ensemble Modern Academie Frankfurt and Impuls Academie Gratz scholarships. His PhD thesis was awarded the “Prix de thèse 2019” from the University of Strasbourg. His main piano teachers were Chryssi Partheniade, Ian Pace, Geoffrey Douglas Madge and Aleck Karis. In ensemble performance, he has followed the seminars of Ensemble Modern and Klangforum Wien.
