Georgi Dimitrov

Los Angeles, CA   

Georgi writes 21st century acoustic music which explores the relationships between distinctive sound molds; how they relate, mix, and complement each other in order to create a viable sense of form. His harmonies are often enjoying the high-definition purr that results from the inclusion of intervals tuned in just intonation. He is currently rehearsing his recently-finished, one act, one-hour chamber opera Maximus, which will be premiered in April 2014 at the University of Southern California and performed further in Los Angeles. The opera takes place in the near future and concerns a parking ticket that utterly destroys its protagonist’s life. It is scored for Clarinet, Violin, Viola, Cello; and a soprano, baritone, and bass who all portray multiple characters.

Active as a performer, Georgi is also a proficient string player who began practicing violin at the age of 6. His violin instructors include Antoine van Dongen from the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, as well as Lorenz Gamma and Mark Menzies from California Institute of the Arts. In 2013 Georgi studied Baroque Viola with Sue Feltman at USC. He is currently studying modern viola and is a member of Che-Yen Chen’s studio at the Thornton School of Music.

Georgi was born in 1989 in Bulgaria. At the age of fifteen he moved to Natick, Massachusetts, in order to study composition with Professor Whitman Brown at the Walnut Hill School. After graduating in 2008 he enrolled at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Music Composition. His principal instructors there included Wolfgang von Schweinitz and Karen Tanaka. Since September 2012 he has been earning a Master in Music in Composition degree at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. His current composition teacher is Professor Stephen Hartke.

Georgi plans to earn a doctorate degree in order to begin his career in academia and share his knowledge and experience in the craft of writing contemporary music.
