My name is Sofia Kourtesis but you might know me as Sofia Kourtesis. I was born in Lima and grew up in Germany -New York. When I was a child my idol was David Bowie / Björk / LL Cool J, because of their music. When I was 18 i started with music, but i began in a kind of funny hip hop band. It was then when I realised that i do like more minimalistic stuff and decided to change the Direction. Since then I do electronic music.
One of my best gigs I played was at Melt Festival. It was so much fun cause i played with my best friends and drunk.
One of the best gigs I have been to was The Knife / Björk / Aphex Twin. I loved old analog cameras.
Now I live in Berlin with myself. In my house you can find lots of movies and cake and my refrigerator is usually full with cheese. I enjoy my super 8 mm camera and Ballet a lot. I can spend hours watching Star Wars. One of my favorite places to visit is Lima/ Tokyo, because emotions.
On weekdays I try to get out of bed and on weekends I usually Dj.
My favorite song at the moment is Dauwd – Shimmer. A film I watched lately and really liked was Woody Allen – Blue Jasmin. The last series I watched and loved was Girls.
I am very inspired by my grandma but she died. My dream is to make a 35mm Science Fiction Movie. My worst nightmare is losing my parents.
I love cakes and hate Fake People. I am addicted to Vinyl, I just cannot stop sleeping. I get totally fucked up, when I lose my grandmothers necklace, i did it twice in 2 different countries.
Local Suicide reminds me of Dots and Dashes.
Tomorrow I am playing in Tel Aviv. Next month New York. Next year Don’t know yet. In 10 years I hope to make a movie.
If I wasn’t a Musician or Booker, I would be a Ninja Turtles. If my life was a Hollywood movie, Laura Harring in Mulholland Drive would have the main role, because it’s Laura Harring. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be hahahahahhahahahaha.
If I was a car, I would be a BMW. If I was an animal, I would be a Lion. If I was an object, I would be a Triangle.
If I could play with anyone it would be Björk / big dream. I would like to collaborate with Dauwd.
If I had only one wish, it would be secret.
I would never say never, because everything is possible.
My word of advice to the reader would be to don’t care about others, care about yourself and the people that love you.
