Trumpetancy

Lefteris Theodosis has been awarded a PhD title in Theory and History of Architecture and has contributed to diverse projects on the subject of postwar urbanism. Recently he has initiated a research about the origins of modern music in Greece examining in particular the activities of Constantinos Doxiadis’ Athens Center of Ekistics that took place during the 1960s with the participation of distinguished artists such as Iannis Xenakis or Anestis Logothetis. Altogether, his interest and experience in music has followed diverse paths: he has obtained the diploma in classical guitar while the past years under the alias Zeda Vega he has developed a solo musical project using analogue and electronic equipment. Currently his research interests focus on interdisciplinary projects that blur the boundaries between urbanism, architecture, sound experimentation and music performance.
