After almost becoming a biomedical engineer, el Buho (born Elias Malassidis) studied Music Technology, as well as the art of script writing, and then embarked on a mission to describe in sounds & pictures what he felt the majority doesn’t hear or see.
He wrote, directed and scored his first short film, “Live Broadcast” in 2009. The film won the Special Prize at the Patras International Film Festival (2010) and was an Official Selection at the 32th Short Film Festival in Drama. “Intersection” followed in 2012 and was officially selected at the 35th Short Film Festival in Drama. Another short film, “Delete Contact“, was completed in 2015.
The 2020 lockdowns found el Buho working on his first album with non-soundtrack material. The single “Shopping List” was released in February 2021, followed by “Solarium Blaze” in July of the same year.
El Buho loves orchestral pop & film scores and is fascinated by urban landscapes.
