Polish | Danish | Icelandic Konrad Korabiewski (1978) is an award- winning experimental sound and media artist, characterized by a marked tendency to transgress various genres and media. His works with sound art, film music, installations, radio, video and multi-media art have a strong site-specific element. His musical atmosphere is sombre and intense, demonstrating a precise attention to musical space; at times with a meditative character, where distortion expresses an emotional depth that demands and attracts attention in minimalistic scenarios of sound.
Among international prizes and grants in 2014 Konrad Korabiewski was awarded the prestige Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD academic award & working grant and nominated for 2 Media Art Awards: European Sound Art Award (formerly known as Deutsche Klangkunst-Preis) and Marler Videokunst-Preis in Germany. He holds a Master in Electronic Music Composition from The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus, Denmark. Konrad Korabiewski is founder and currently the director of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music. He is an independent curator and Research Associate at Film and Digital Media Department of University of California, Santa Cruz. Also a member of Danish Composers’ Society since 2004.
