Konrad Korabiewski – composer | sound | media artist
Danish | Polish | Icelandic Konrad Korabiewski (born in Łódź, 1978) is an award-winning experimental composer, sound and media artist working worldwide and currently residing in East Iceland, and California.
Characterised by a marked tendency to transgress various genres and media, his sound art, film music, installations, radio, video and multi-media art works have a strong site-specific element. Konrad Korabiewski’s 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, Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland. He is an independent curator and Research Associate at Film and Digital Media Department UCSC (University of California, Santa Cruz). Also a member of Danish Composers’ Society since 2004 and since 2016 ambassador for the Danish Parliament green political party ‘The Alternative’.
