After gloriously deciding to drop his nearly finished studies as a biomedical engineer, el Buho (born Elias Malassidis) studied Music Technology.

In the meantime, he studied the art of script writing and 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.

In the meantime, el Buho kept writing music for short films, TV and internet commercials.

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.

Late 2014 found el Buho releasing his first single “The first heartbeat” and preparing his future releases.

El Buho loves orchestral pop & film scores and is fascinated by urban landscapes.
