Panayiotis Demopoulos was born in Athens, Greece in 1977 and grew up in the town of Kozani. He took his first music lessons at the age of 5 and gave his first public performance at the historical Parnassus Hall, Athens, in 1984. In 1996 he decided to study music formally and moved to Edinburgh where he joined the piano class of Margaret Murray-McLeod. In the next five years, he completed a BMus with honours at the Ian Tomlin School of Music, Napier University. This was followed by the opportunity to study the piano with Murray McLachlan and composition with Anthony Gilbert at the Royal Northern College of Music on a scholarship. In 2007 he obtained his PhD in music composition from York University. In 2007 he moved back to Greece with his wife, the organist Nicola Harrington. He entered full-time employment in education, teaching at the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki and leading free improvisation and composition classes at the Openart music school in Larisa. He is the founder of Anaeresis (anon.) publishing and the Ricercati vocal ensemble.
