Nick Demopoulos & The Smomid



Nick Demopoulos has worked in a wide variety of contexts in the world of music and sound creation including guitar performance, composition, sound design, musical instrument design and music software development. With his electronic jazz ensemble "Exegesis" he has released two CDs. In 2010 he started designing, building and composing music for an instrument he calls the Smomid, which stands for string modeling midi device. This instrument can be most simply described as a touch sensitive guitar that controls highly responsive software. This software allows for variation of beats, bass lines and patterns within a musical performance in real time. It also allows for a dynamically, variation rich and ever evolving live performance of electronic music.

In 2008 Demopoulos worked as a cultural ambassador through the American Music Abroad Program. This program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, enabled Nick to perform and conduct educational workshops in Bahrain, Oman, Yemen, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. Since 2008 he has been performing and recording with renowned percussionist and NEA Jazz Master Chico Hamilton. In 2012 he created music for choreographer Camille Brown for a piece which premiered at the Joyce Theatre in New York.
