Composer / Soundartist, lives in Berlin
Konstantin Schimanowski is a re-immigrated German of Black Sea German descent. He is also a Cossack, a Ukrainian and a Russian – a colorful cultural kaleidoscope of origins.
He studied philosophy and art history, where he became interested in Land Art and the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. He wrote his final thesis on the topic of deconstruction as a principle of social renaissance.
He is an art-pop musician and released two albums about the Shetland island Vaila as a fantastic metaphor of contemporary life.
At the University of Arts in Berlin he did a master’s degree in SoundStudies and Acoustic Communication. He wrote his master’s thesis in the field of acoustic architecture, studying the interplay of natural and cultural sounds during a trek along the Adriatic-Vienna Pipeline.
His works, whether pop-musical or in the field of contemporary art, deal with the various manifestations of the spirit in a technocratic-rationally organized world and with the relationship between the synthetic and the natural.
