The Nam June Paik Art Center is pleased to invite Zbigniew Krkowski for its 2nd workshop titled Composing Chaos, on September 12th. Krkowski is an active sound artist as well as a composer focusing on experimental and computer music. Traveling and living around the globe, Krkowski’s music embraces diverse genres from noise music, and electronic music to computer music. Krkowski believes that geographical, political and cultural boundaries must be challenged for creativity to occur. He makes no exception to this in his music. Krkowski’s idea parallels Nam Jun Paik’s attitude towards music in the 60s in Germany. For this workshop, Karkowski will discuss the wide range of his music career and introduce his radical composing style which breaks with the traditions of music.
Following the workshop, Karkowski will perform two places in the Memorabillia room (2nd F1) : Number Crunching includes video work by Atsuko Nojiri and Circularity, to be premiered at the Nam Jun Paik Art Center. In addition to Karkowski, the performance of Circularity will include the participation of Atsuko Nojiri, Chulki Hong, Hankil Ryu, Joonyong Choi, Sangtae Jin.
