Konstantin Schimanowski is a composer and performer.
Born 1985 close to Murmansk in northern Russia, he is a decendant from a polish musicians family.
He spend his youth at an elite boarding school in the Black Forest, where he wrote and recorded first fragments.
Later he joined the d.i.y. network OMAHArecords, played in several bands and experimented with silent film scores. He created sounddesigns for movies and wrote music for theatrical plays.
He studied Philosophy and History of the Arts at the Albert-Ludwig University in Freiburg (i. Brsg.) and Sonic Arts at the University of the Arts in Berlin.
His compositions burst with a strong visual atmosphere and are not bound to formal genrefication. Often an electric guitar is used and a spiritual voice wavers through the soundscapes.
Based in Berlin, he is working in collaboration with artists like Sergei Sviatchenko and Nicholas Bussmann. He writes scores, contributes to exhibitions and is about to release his first longplaying musical work.
