BIordanis is the artistic name of Iordanis Boutsioulis. However, my profession, education and expertise (although very creative) are not that of a typical artist. Let’s start from the beginning. I did 5 years piano lessons (when I was in primary and high school). From the first year of lessons, I started playing my favorite music songs by ear. Being lucky and having a piano at home, I started playing, experimenting and creating my own music compositions and improvisations. In the late years of high school, I bought my first synthesizer and that was the first time I started composing music tracks. At that time, this was just my hobby since the main focus was on school and the rest similar activities.
When I was student in College, I joined, as a member, the music group of Stylianos (a new singer and artist of that time) playing keyboards. As a group, we did almost 30 live concerts and one videoclip . I stayed there for a couple of years. When I graduated, I focused on my profession and I continued to play and compose music for my pleasure.
After many years of work, I finally created a home studio that gave me the ability not only to play and compose, but to produce also my records and tracks. That was a very happy period; I could express my feelings through my music being simultaneously able to produce whatever I wanted. However, I liked also my work and gradually I was focusing more on it, so once more the music continued as a parallel hobby. I did postgraduate studies (relevant to my work) and after 2 years my family (wife and son) and I relocated in London, UK, staying there for almost 3 years.
In London, I was concentrated again on work, but I have never stopped playing. After this period had passed, we returned back to our beautiful country (Greece). You see the sun is a glorious thing! Anyway, this time I decided to do both things (profession and music), since this pattern is repeating itself all my life! That is why I created two websites, one for my profession (www.ibbds.com) and one for my music (www.biordanis.com). I hope people will enjoy and like both!
