Robert Piotrowicz is a sound artist, composer, and improviser. He has authored radio dramas, sound installations, as well as music for theatre productions, and collaborates regularly with other artists on audiovisual performances. As an instrumentalist, Piotrowicz works mainly with his own live performance setup, developed around the electric guitar and analogue modular synthesiser. His music has as much in common with contemporary electro-acoustic compositions as it does with sound art. His concerts feature saturated, detailed musical forms created with analogue synthesisers and computers. He has developed his trademark sound of intense dynamics seized in dramatic
and balanced structures.
Piotrowicz has released several solo albums as well as collaborations with artists such as Xavier Charles, Kevin Drumm, Jérôme Noetinger, Burkhard Stangl, Zbigniew Karkowski, and Anna Zaradny. Piotrowicz has given live performances throughout Europe, North & Central America, Japan and Australia. Co-founder of the Musica Genera Festival and the Musica Genera label. Author of music to Zbigniew Libera’s film Walser, which will be screened before Piotrowicz’s concert at the Festival. The soundtrack of the same title was released by Musica Genera.
