Yuri Demetz is currently doing his master in composition at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Leipzig, with Prof. Dr. Fabien Lévy.
In 2019 he obtained his bachelor degree at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, where he was studying classical piano performance with Deniz Gelenbe and composition with Douglas Finch and Amir Konjani.
One of Yuri’s priorities as a composer is to be able to successfully combine the wildly different styles of music that are most relevant to him personally, no matter how contrasting. He often even tries to emphasise these contrast, to achieve a greater expressivity and viscerality in his music. This approach has partly been inspired by his numerous past experiences in various Rock Bands and his deep interest in electronic music.
