John Psathas, ONZM

John Psathas ONZM has not only achieved a level of international success as a composer unprecedented in New Zealand history, he is also now widely considered one of the three most important living composers of the Greek diaspora. 

John has a natural inclination toward mega-projects.  Since writing much of the ceremonial music for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, John’s music has been on the radar of a wider public than that normally associated with a contemporary composer.  His works have been played by many of the world's great orchestras and soloists.  His music fuses the languages of jazz, classical, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, avant-garde, rock, and electronica.

John's recent collaborations have included crossover projects with Serj Tankian, roots musicians Warren Maxwell and Little Bushman, Greek folk master musician Manos Achalinotopoulos, author Salman Rushdie, film director Dana Rotberg, and jazz luminaries Michael Brecker and Joshua Redman
