Dimitris Theodoropoulos was born in 1976 in Athens, Greece. He has studied Physics and is the guitarist and the main composer of the gothic metal group Shadows Dance. In 2003 “cold blood industries” released their debut album under the name “A quatrain for the damned”. Since then he has created a luthier shop in which he constructs traditional instruments like oud and cretan lyras. His main purpose is to use Physics in lutherie. He uses TAP TUNING in his acoustic instruments, a method that is used to “tune” the woods and achieve a sonic balance. He also constructs electric guitars, basses, something pretty different from traditional instruments.
