About the artist
Dmytro was born in the UK to Ukrainian/Italian parents who were displaced from their respective countries after the second world war. He never felt truly comfortable with any of those cultures and therefore used music in his search for an identity. He says his compositions belong to their own genre, one of an 'Other World.'
His music is intensely personal yet generous to the audience, highly evocative of powerful conflicting emotions, beautiful, passionate & moving, allowing a glimpse of his journey in search of an 'other world'.
Classically trained on piano to LRAM, Dmytro has been a session musician for rock bands and various singers but his main focus is as composer of original music for film, theatre, dance and public performance.
Winner of the prize for best original music at the Southampton Drama Festival.
Member of National Student Theatre Company (1978-80). Commissioned by Amnesty International: The Unforgiving (1997), Prisoners of Conscience (1998): Films include, Portrait of Evil (1997), Buckshee Countess (2009), Oasis (2011/2012)
Dmytro has held a number of residencies both artistic and commercial. He lived in Edinburgh, Scotland for 25 years before moving to Perthshire in 2013.
