Born 1970, cello.
Nikos Veliotis was born in Athens, Greece and, though initially trained as a pianist, he later devoted himself to the cello.
He became active in the London improvisation scene in 1998-99 mainly through the trio CRANC (with Rhodri Davies and Angharad Davies) while researching performance issues relating to graphic scores under the Mmus course at Trinity College of Music. He was awarded the Mmus certificate later that year
He is now based in Athens working as a freelance cellist. His contemporary music repertoire includes works for solo cello by Xenakis, Peter Sculthorpe and Helmut Lachenmann as well as indeterminate and graphic works by composers such as Cornelius Cardew, Philip Corner and Sulvano Bussoti. He runs the Athens 2:13club whose activities include monthly concerts and an annual 2:13 three-day festival.
