He has as well written music for film, video, theatre and dance. His scores are published and distributet by STIM in Sweden and until today he has released more then 100 cds by labels all over the World. He is conviced that it is a responsibility of an artist in in the present day to travel and work around the World in order to learn and understand different cultures and traditions and discover truth about ourselves and our planet. He also strongly believes that geographical, political and social exile is a necessary condition for true and honest creation. He is not interested in the traditional definition of music, in his opinion, all musical theory and systems as cultural concepts must be destroyed. In his latest work, his main concern is to realize drama with sound - electronic and acoustic walls with the architectures of ruins transcribed in the scores. www.myspace.com/zbigniewkarkowski www.disquiet.com/zkarkowski.html -Brian O'Reilly (US) Brian O?Reilly werkt met video, geluidsinstallatie, kinetic sculpture, assemblage books, electro-acoustic composition, en is tevens een contrabassist.
