Kriton Beyer is a Greek-German musician and composer who – as a performer and improviser – works 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 troupe "omada epi topou" (the "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 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, as well as the performance series "Audiovisual Ventures at the Kühlspot Social Club" dedicated to Realtime Visual Performance and Improvised Music.

Steve is interested in the repetitive acoustic territories of everyday life informing his and others sonic agency. His research revolves around the physicality of sonic boundaries and how it informs compositional methodologies, materials and structures along with the listeners corporal reading thereof. His music is a collision of captivating simplicity and fleeting subtle complexity. Hypnotic and compelling.
Steve current music projects/bands vary from avant-garde, free jazz to noise, drone rock, progressive fitness disco and include: Stiff Leather, The Still, Booklet, Y, Shelter and The Splitter Orchestra. Steve´s music is riddled with noise and rapture, sudden links, resonances, offered assistance and conflicts of interest.
