Dimitra Kousteridou(GR) is a multidisciplinary artist, who currently lives and works in Athens, GR. Her Diploma in Art and Design was received from Akto Art and Design College, her Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the Hanze University|Academy Minerva, Groningen, NL and a Master's degree in Music Composition with New Media from the Musicology of National and Kapodistrian University Athens, GR.
Her work is driven by a desire to invent a language in composition that examines tactile and sound aspects within site-specific art installations, painting and improvisation. Through multidisciplinary forms that include installations, ephemeral situations and fractures of objects, she creates a space for research, while using the sound and aesthetics of the materials in time. Recently working on improvised sound compositions with handmade

instruments (interactive handmade synthesizers). She has performed and exhibited in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Serbia, Libanon and Greece
