Biography

As an Montreal artist and composer, Georges Dimitrov composes music in many genres, whether contemporary music, classical, pop, rock, electronic, or for films and video games. In addition to scoring the music of many shorts and a documentary, he received commissions from ensembles such as the Montreal Metropolitan Orchestra, the Orchestre Symphonique de l’Isle, La Machine, Arkea, Blue Rider or Quatrix, and his works have been conducted by the likes of Cristian Cort, Dana Gilbert or Lorraine Vaillancourt.

Georges presently teaches theory and composition at Concordia University as a full-time faculty member for the fifth year. He previously taught for six years at the University of Montreal, where he completed his doctorate in composition. Working in within a research-creation approach, he publishes articles, attends symposiums and sits on the board of the Société Québécoise de Recherche en Musique (SQRM). He likes however to broaden his field of composition outside the academic circles, incorporating influences from Montreal’s undeground electronic music scene. In addition to his composition and teaching activities, he also works on the development of video games and co-hosts a weekly radio show on CISM 89.3 FM.
