Dimitris Diamantis, also known as Corvum.
Greek born musician, composer, producer, DJ ,sound designer.
The first contact with music was at the age of 5 when started playing classical piano and was introduced to the classical culture, philosophy and sound. Practically lived in a conservatory until had finished all classical music studies. After that, has left Greece and went to the University of Graz in Austria (Universitat für Musik und kuns Darstellende) and then to Bologna's University in Italy ([D.A.M.S (Dicipline delle Arti,della Musica e dello Spettacolo)] to expand his knowledge in music.
It was when he heard, for the first time, music by Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis Papathanasiou that changed his perspective on music. Suddenly, the electronic element intruded his mind, boosted the passion for creation and changed the way that wanted to create and listen to music for ever!
The piano gave its place to synthesizers and started playing and producing more "electronically".
He began listening to artists/groups and music in general, based on synths, electro and synthpop. In the late 80's was involved with House and Techno music, EBM, IDM and other various sub-genres of electronic music.
It was in the early 90's when created Corvum and since then he embarked on a musical journey of experimentation.
Computers were the new tool added to his arsenal and along the studies he was involved with digital software and hardware music production and Djing.
As Corvum first era created 4 unreleased hypnotic industrial downtempo minimal LPs.
The passion for innovation and the everlasting attraction to electronic music, clubbing culture and Djing, led things happen and started professionally producing Corvum's new era that made him invade the music industry and discography
