Barbora Tomášková

Slovak composer Barbora Tomášková combines live electronics with her own acoustic instruments to create soundscapes in which the flow of music is based primarily on the principles of intuition and ritual. Conventional instruments, self-made sound objects and electronics are transformed and combined into a hybrid form that is abstract yet rooted in familiar sounds. In addition to solo performances, the musician, who studied composition at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava, and in Portugal, also produces works for classical ensembles and a number of her compositions have been performed at festivals in Portugal, Spain, Georgia, Austria and the Czech Republic.
