Daniel Kōnstantînos-Theodore Souphis is currently finishing his bachelor’s degree in Music Composition at the Chicago College of the Performing Arts at Roosevelt University; currently he studies Music Composition under Dr. Stacy Garrop and Dr. Kyong Mee Choi. Mr. Souphis has also received an associate in Piano Peformance and a certificate in Studio engineering from Harold Washington College.
Issues of human desire or the “human condition” encompass much of the inspiration for Mr. Souphis’ compositional output. It is his intent to sonically express the range of emotions that come along with topics such as freedom, loneliness, meaning, and mortality. Surreal sonic landscapes, contrasted sonorities, and a dented-beauty aesthetic are the most important elements to his compositional style. “I believe that the most beautiful things in life rise from or fall into the earth; the truest forms of beauty will always contain a bit of dirt”.
