Music Wallingford/Greenlake

Karl Fousek (b. 1984) is a musician and composer. His works explore the sonorities of electronic sound synthesis algorithms (analog and digital) in a variety of contexts – from improvised music, to generative composition, to drone and minimalism. As a performer, he is committed to the pursuit of a truly “live” electronic music, participating in both concerts for solo synthesizer and in group improvisations alongside electronic and acoustic instrumentation. His music has been published internationally on labels such as Second Editions (DE), Dinzu Artefacts (US), Mondoj (PL), and others, and he has been featured in concert at MUTEK, Cluster New Music + Integrated Arts Festival, The Banff Centre, Sounds Like Audio Arts Festival, Vector Festival, and elsewhere. As collaborator Karl has worked with musicians Roger Tellier-Craig, Yves Charuest, and Nicolas Caloia, artist David Hartt, and filmmaker Dan Brown amongst others. As an educator he has given lectures and workshops on sound synthesis, performance, and algorithmic composition at Parsons School of Design, Université de Montréal, and many of the festivals at which he also performs. Karl is currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
