Bálint Bolcsó

Over the last 14 years, I have worked with electronics in a wide range of different situations. Starting from pure musical compositions for “tape”, I have increasingly got engaged in interdisciplinary cooperations and made sound installations, continuously researching new possibilities of sound and interaction. Improvisation is another tool I appreciate as a powerful way of communication and connection across different genres and disciplines as well as between performer and audience.
