Kriton Beyer is a Greek-German musician and composer who works – as a performer and improviser – mainly with the harmonium and the daxophone.
He studied musicology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. From 1990 - 2004 he played with a variety of local music groups in Greece, such as Sakis Papadimitriou's "ad-hoc ensemble" and the post-rock group "Sigmatropic". In 2004, he moved to Berlin, where he got heavily involved in the improvised music scene of the city.
Since then, he has worked with many musicians like Phil Minton, Kalle Kalima, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Kresten Osgood, Tristan Honsinger, Tomomi Adachi, Richard Scott, Willi Kellers, Matthias Bauer, Antonis Anissegos, Olaf Rupp, Els Vandeweyer, Harri Sjöström, Nicola Hein and Liz Allbee. Kriton Beyer is a member of the electroacoustic trio "uproot", the ensembles "Redox Reaction", "AEAEA" and the "Berlin Soundpainting Orchestra". He is involved in the multimedia project "Dark Eye" with Korhan Erel and Nicolas Wiese, the movement, sound and light experiment “enLIGHTenment” with butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki and has cooperated with japanese visual artist and live painter Akiko Nakayama.
In his work with the harmonium, Kriton Beyer uses both the natural sound of his instrument and "traditional" playing techniques as well as preparations, objects and extended techniques. His daxophone play is characterized by a very personal musical and sonic aesthetic, deviating from that of the instrument’s inventor Hans Reichel, who often had a tonal approach to the instrument. Kriton Beyer chooses to work sometimes with a stripped, minimal and strictly acoustic sound of the instrument, while at other times – in contrast to that – he also works with setups ranging from subtle to sometimes extensive use of effects and electronics.
As an improvising musician, he has performed throughout Europe. His compositions are largely based on conceptual art. Kriton Beyer has also conceived and commissioned the music software CinePrompt®, which was specially developed for the use for live musical performance and live recording to films.
He curates and manages the concert series and record label "The Procrustean Bed" dedicated to Experimental Improvised Music.
