Konrad Korabiewski (PL/DK)
Polish | Danish Konrad Korabiewski (1978) is an award- winning 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 approach in his way of working and feeling. Focused on absorption, content and atmosphere of sound rather than a certain media, he experiments and develops new possibilities for expressing philosophical views and artistic ideologies in sensing music and art. This is also highly visible at Korabiewski’s live performances, where he involves other actors and medias to add layers and new dimensions to his music, sound and radio art pieces, installations and videoworks. As with his latest pioneering and prize awarded crossover, interactive art-book project Affected As Only A Human Being Can Be with the mixed media artist Litten.
Konrad Korabiewski’s musical atmosphere is sombre, intense, distorted, and has a profound sence of musical space and depth – at times with a meditative character, slowly developing transitions and blooming characters that demands and attracts attention in minimalistic scenarios of sound.
By international press his musical expression is often compared to Norwegian ambient master Biosphere – “only darker and more industrial”.
In 2011 Konrad Korabiewski won the international sound-art competition Europe – A Sound Panorama.
Konrad Korabiewski is currently project manager, festival director for Skálar – Centre for Sound Art and Experimental Music, and running a Gallery and Art studio HOF in Seydisfjördur, Iceland.
