Sakis Gouzonis (Greek: Σάκης Γκουζώνης, born March 16, 1978, known to his listeners simply as Sakis) is a Greek composer, orchestrator and producer of electronic music.

Until now, Sakis Gouzonis has released 15 electronic music albums, all of which are available on his official website [1]. In addition, he has won 10 international music awards and distinctions, and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers in many countries through social networks, such as MySpace [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]. It has all been done independently, with no record labels involved in supporting him.

Sakis Gouzonis is also one of those composers who prefer to use electronic musical instruments rather than computers to compose and orchestrate electronic music [7] [8].

Former BBC reporter Steve Sheppard wrote about Sakis Gouzonis: "...His sweeping melodies and stunning chord changes are a real testament to his undoubted talent..." [9]

Biography[edit]

Early Years[edit]

Sakis Gouzonis was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. At the age of ten, Sakis and his family moved to Elassona, which is located at the foot of Mount Olympus, the mythical place of the twelve Olympian gods.

Sakis had always dreamed of having his own electronic musical instrument. His dream came true in 1990 when he got his first electronic keyboard. Sakis immediately started composing and orchestrating music, without any conservatory education at all. Although he was very young, he had the innate ability to play music by ear, without the aid of music books.

In 2001, Sakis began working as an English teacher at a foreign language school. After about a year, Sakis bought his first professional music workstation, which he would later use to create a number of electronic music albums.

Two months before the 2004 Olympic Games, Sakis moved to Athens, where he continued working as an English teacher, while at the same time he continued composing original electronic music.

In September 2007, Sakis returned to the city of Elassona. As the internet began to radically change the way new emerging artists were discovered, his stay in Athens was no longer necessary.

Music Career[edit]

In September 2007, Sakis created his own recording studio in order to release his own electronic music albums.
