Interview Guest: FRIEDA BIRNBAUM, PHD; and Performance Guest: GEORGE KARPASITIS
George Karpasitis’ language is music. He is a Los Angeles based music composer, producer, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, best known for his lyrical guitar style. He has performed and recorded internationally, in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, such as Abbey Road Studios in London, UK.
He was born and raised on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, where from a young age he was exposed to the local sounds of Greek and Middle Eastern music, as well as The Beatles and Louis Armstrong, through his dad’s audio cassette collection. His relentless love for music led him to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Guitar Performance from the London Centre of Contemporary Music, and a Master’s Degree in Film Scoring from Berklee College of Music.
As of 2023, George has released two albums of original compositions for solo classical guitar (‘Sounds of Mar Vista’, 2019 and ‘Breakwater’ 2020), and has worked in the music department for more than 20 films, including titles by Disney and Discovery Plus. His debut single as a singer-songwriter, titled ‘Speaking of Love’, was released in 2021. He has also recorded and produced artists such as ceremonial songstress Winter Jendayi (‘Hilos Sagrados’, 2022), world music duo Corasonho (‘Ebo’, 2022) and singer-songwriter Wesley Sol (‘Om Shreem/Nas Aguas’, 2022).
He is currently creating the sound and music of ‘Palmares’, a historically based Capoeira action musical that will be performed as part of the Hollywood Fringe festival throughout June 2023. He is also producing the upcoming debut EP by the Golden Sisters collective, who bridge culture, tradition and language through their songs. His next personal release, titled ‘Sounds of Rajasthan’ will be a collection of mantras he learned during his recent travels to India.
When he is not creating music, George enjoys meditation, martial arts, travel and long walks in nature, where he finds inspiration.
