Slavek Kwi is a sound-artist, composer and researcher interested in the phenomena of perception as the fundamental determinant of relations with reality. He has a long-standing fascination with sound-environments, developing what he terms ‘electro-acoustic sound-paintings’ that oscillate between sound only works and interdisciplinary works exploring social, spatial and temporal processes. These complex audio-based situations are created mainly from site specific recordings, resulting in subjective reports for radio broadcast, ‘cinema for ears’ for multi-channel playback, sound installations integrated into the environment and performances. From the early nineties Slavek has operated under the name Artificial Memory Trace. Then, gradually he metamorphosed into genderless sound-entity alfa00. Since 2018 he is active in uni.Sol_ (United Artists for Well-Being of Solar System & Everything Else), a international project exploring extrasensory communication and synchronicity.
