Born 1954 in Sevlievo, Bulgaria. After studying at the Music academy in Sofia he won a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) scholarship and graduated from the Folkwang high school in Essen, Germany, having studied electronic music composition with Dirk Reith (Institut für Elecktronische Musik und Computermedien) and horn with Hermann Baumann. Djambazov composes electroacoustic and acoustic music, music for theater and cinema. He participated in the festivals Synthese in Bourges; Elektronischer Fruhling and Elektrokomplex in Vienna; November Music in 'S Hertogenbosch, Ghent, and Essen; Bienal Internacional de Música Electroacústica de São Paulo, Brazil; and also in festivals in Athens, Sarajevo, Sofia and Rostrum in Belgrade. The confrontation of "live" instruments with electronic sound is an important aspect of Djambazov's works. He is active in educational and public spaces: He teaches virtual studio technologies and MIDI at Sofia University and at New Bulgarian University. He serves as treasurer of the executive board of the Society for New Music in Bulgaria and is a member of the selection committee for the festival "Musica Nova." He is co-founder of the Bulgarian Classic FM Radio and the Pianissimo Foundation, which organizes the annual international festival for new piano music ppIANISSIMO in Sofia.
