Katerina Stathis (she/her) is a multi-instrumentalist and composer born in Melbourne’s West. Her soundscape practice explores connections between self and place, creating visceral experiences using a blend of analogue and digital synthesisers, found sound and acoustic instruments.

She has released a number of solo compositions including Delusions & Heroines, Refract: Covid Soundscapes Vol 1, Hope Springs Eternal and the soundtrack for Cloudland, a collaboration with installation artist, Chi-Uh Star. Her compositions have been included in various compilations including MESS Ltd’s Capacitor and Music Under Lockdown: Melbourne 2020 on the Shame File Music Label.

Katerina is one third of the composer collective STATHIS//DAVEY//KIM who were involved in sonic installation collaborations for Mona Foma 2020 & 2021: Hypnos Cave (in collaboration with Robin Fox and Soma Lumia) and Chairway to Heaven - A Suspended Symphony in the Sky.​ She is also a member of the MESS Synthesiser Orchestra whose performance of Magnitudes by Mat Watson, debuted at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2021. She has worked in collaboration with visual artist Jessie Scott and synthesiser artist Alex Nosek to forge a shared lexicon between analog and digital, audio and visual in Analog-Graft. Most recently Katerina worked in collaboration with Lucy Guerin Inc. composing the soundtrack for a new dance work, How to Be Us, commissioned by the Australian Ballet for Dance X.
