Karkowki returns to Lampo to perform computer mutations of his instrumental music, reworking material he originally composed for orchestra and small ensemble.
Zbigniew Karkowksi (b.1958, Krakow, Poland) emigrated as a teenager and lived in Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris and Los Angeles. He studied music composition with Oliver Messiaen and Pierre Boulez, but cites Iannis Xenakis as his most important teacher.

Zbigniew Karkowski first performed at Lampo in February 2002.
