Her project FRACHTART exemplifies her curiosity about art formats that give supposedly archaic structures a stage for reflection in order to amaze, amuse and (most importantly) encourage artists and audiences to think along.

Luís Antunes Pena/Köln · electronics www.luisantunespena.eu
Luís Antunes Pena is a composer of electronic and instrumental music. He describes his approach to composition based on the “consciousness of uncertainty”, which is a method to integrate various manifestations of noise. His works often include different instruments and sounds from low-fi custom-made electronic circuits and megaphones to acoustic instruments of the western music tradition as well stones, sounds of analog synthesizers or computer-generated structures.
