Profile:
Floros Floridis was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. He studied Physics and got his diploma in Aristoteleion University of Thessaloniki. He then studied classical clarinet with the Romanian professor Konstantin Ugureanou and started being a professional musician in the 70s. From the beggining his main interest in music was improvisation, and that continues up to now. Since this is a tough task, he performed in a range that goes from a Symphony Orchestra to a wedding band.
He has composed music for short films, documentaries, feature films, theater (mainly for director Roula Pateraki) and dance performances. Furthermore he has been painting and doing grafical work (covers for records, books, posters, etc.) since the 70s. From 1981 on Floridis started his label j.n.d.records and after a break of 15 years restarted it as j.n.d. re-records.Again the label stoped it's activities in 2007. In the summer of 2008 organized the "Impro-days-hydra" event .
As a leader/co-leader he has collaborated with Peter Kowald, Paul Lytton, Paul Lovens, Phil Wachsman, Hans Schneider, Louis Moholo, Vincent Chancey, Jean Marc Montera, Pinguin Moschner, Mark Charig,Milos Petrovic, Okay Temiz,Nicky Skopelitis Ivo Papazov as well as with Greek musicians such as Michalis Siganidis, Kostas Vomvolos, Dimitris Polizoidis, Argyris Bakirtzis, Yannis Mourtzopoulos, Ilias Papadopoulos, Savina Giannatou, Nikos Psofogiorgos, Nektarios Karatzis, Vagelis Tsotridis,"Spyweirdos" and Babis Papadopoulos among others, resulting in the release of more than 25 CDs.
Throughout the years, he has participated in various CD-productions of other artists in Greece as well as abroad. He founded the Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music of the Municipality of Thessaloniki in 1984 and was both the artistic director and co-coordinator of eight of the nine festivals that have taken place.
