Dimitri Voudouris started composing in the 90s.He composes for acoustic instruments,electronic sound sources, multimedia, including dance and theatre. Voudouris bases his technical and theoretical compositional approach on research of cognitive psycho-acoustic behavioural patterns in humans, and the behaviour of sound in relationship to continued environmental changes. These theories help to create moments of isolation allowing for the morphological study of each individual sound source, a strategic necessity that brings a degree of order and allows for the creation of various building blocks used in the construction of micro-environments that intern form the backbone of his compositions. His socio-cultural interests have led him to research the survival of music in the 21 century and the impact that media and technology have on the composer.
In 2003, Dimitri Voudouris became director of electronic music for NewMusicSA, and organisation that promotes contemporary new music in South Africa.
In September 2005, Dimitri Voudouris pioneered UNYAZI, the first electronic music symposium and festival to be held in South Africa and the first on the African continent.
