Marcin Pietruczewski

Composer and researcher

Marcin Pietruszewski (*1984 in Gniezno, Poland) is a composer and researcher based in Edinburgh. He engages with sound synthesis and composition using computers, exploring specific formal developments in the tradition of electroacoustic music and contemporary sound art, as well as extra-musical domains of auditory design, computational linguistics, and psychoacoustics. He works across performance, multimedia installations, and radio productions, probing the dynamics between formalism of synthetic sound and its material realization. He has collaborated extensively with musicians and composers, including Marcus Schmickler, Tristan Clutterbuck (fancyyyyy), Jules Rawlinson, and Lauren Sarah Hayes. Among his recent projects are a collaboration with Florian Hecker and graphic design company NORM from Zurich, philosopher Chris Schambaugh (The New School, New York), choreographer and dancer Agnes Cebere (Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, New York), the Laboria Cubonics Collective (the authors of Xenofeminist Manifesto).
