Curated by Michael Durek
Michael Durek is a multi-instrumentalist, artist, and curator who plays as Cloud Cloud. From a chip-tunes beginning in 2009, Cloud Cloud became an electro/experimental chamber ensemble, and finally meshed into it’s current form: A saucy blend of pulsitile, structured, yet free electronic music making use of synths, theremins, and sampled sounds recorded from Durek’s everyday life. Durek has performed in six different countries with PAS (Post Abortion Stress), leads a group called the SK Orchestra, co-organizes the Omega Sound Fix festival, plays in George Sand, Ping Pong, and has appeared on over a dozen albums.
