is only to be expected from one whose biography in music goes back
to the early age of 17 and with his epic symphony composition, "The
Blazing March, from Genesis to Europe", unanimously approved
by the board of directors of the
educational institute to be included as part of the high school
curriculum in music.
This new challenge,
composing the original soundtrack motion picture score for the multi-million
dollar production "Bronze And Blood", is one that Demetrios
is taking in his stride. "I welcome this new challenge"
he says in his deeply accented voice, "we must always be growing,
until now I have always composed to my vision, now I am composing
to someone else’s. That vision begins with the writer of the
script and ends with that of the director, and I find that to be
wonderfully rewarding in that it is also a means of growing and
expanding my own musical vision".
is without a doubt the forerunner in the world of composing dramatic,
orchestral and symphonic music, many of his existing works can be
found on EMI, Virgin Classics and Polygram and in film music libraries
around the world, so
it would only seem like foresight on the part of producer Christopher
Devereaux to have Demetrios Katis on board for this epic film about
the legendary "Cuchulainn" ferocious warrior champion
of Ireland. "Yes why not?" Demetrios asks with a shy
shrug and self-deprecating smile, "this is a film that almost
feels like it was written with my kind of music in mind, I had that
feeling from when I first saw the script, so yes, it is a good match."
Like the great
history of Greece itself Demetrios rise through the music industry
has not been without it's share of setbacks and pitfalls. When pressed
about his experiences he remains placid as if it is only to be expected
for anyone in the music business. "Let me tell you something,
even through the dark ages for Greece
when the sons of Heracles sought to conquer us, eventually through
adapting and growing good came of it. From those sons of Heracles
came the great Macedonians and Spartans."
Look out Hollywood
a son of Heracles has entered the arena well prepared to claim his
stake in the field of epic and dramatical works.
