A Greece-based musician, Vasilis Ginos was born in Athens in the '60s. He started off playing keyboards in bands, most of which he co-founded. His influences were the big rock groups of the era, his (non-formal but nonetheless) classical training and a late infatuation with jazz. After his Law Degree from Athens University he worked as a session musician and later an arranger and musical director for the local music scene.
An early adopter of music technology (computers and synthesizers) - even worked for Roland as a product specialist for a while - he put his skills in good use, live and in the studio. The result were many platinum-selling CDs and series of successful concerts and live performances all over Greece, backing or arranging for every major artist of his country. While at it, he developed a deep understanding and knowledge of the local repertoire and folk music of the Balkan Peninsula and the Mediterranean Basin. He pioneered the fusion of these world idioms with international pop/rock music and modern production techniques, producing major local mainstream hits for the last three decades.
He also scored for TV (regular shows and advertising), theatrical shows and the movies. In an experimental level his latest solo releases include "Ambigua", a synthesized tribute for 20th century modernist composers in three acts and "Electron Stories With Cats", an electronic suite in nine parts.
