Polish | Danish Konrad Korabiewski (1978) is an experimental multimedia artist, currently residing in east coast of Iceland. As a sound-artist, composer and media artist, Konrad Korabiewski has a minimalist, yet detail-oriented unconventional and experimental artistic approach, characterized by a marked tendency to transgress various genres and media. Focused on absorption, content and substance of art rather than a certain media, he experiments and develops new possibilities for expressing philosophical views and artistic ideologies in sensing music and other art fields.

A synchronized sound track is created using tapes, bass, electric hums and feedback an improvised live set between dynamic electro-acoustic music and visceral noise.
