  • 24th January 2016

A composer and filmmaker well-known for his interdisciplinary practice (he has been called “the Phillip K. Dick of contemporary music”). He is a member of the Plymouth University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research, and is composer-in-residence for the Plymouth Marine Institute. Alexis has completed two PhDs, one in Arts and one in Technology. He has worked as a Project Manager and a Stock Market Analyst. Alexis is a poet who has been invited to read at Glastonbury Festival, and was editor of the UK’s first poetry webzine ‘Brink’. Alexis’ music has been featured in the international media and performed worldwide, but his proudest moment was a cartoon attacking his opera in the Sunday Times.

Alexis will be collaborating across a number of Engine House projects.
