In addition to fascinating insights into art, technology and society, the Ars Electronica Center’s exhibitions offer a wide variety of opportunities for exciting challenges. At “Beat the clock” in our Open Sound Studio, musicians and sound artists take on the challenge of producing a beat or even an entire track in just 10 minutes.
After Marco Palewicz, born in February 1982, grew up well sheltered in Tyrol and enjoyed a thoroughly musical school education, he decided to leave the mountains of his homeland behind and study jazz and popular music in Linz at the Bruckner University. He finished this very pleasantly inspiring study with distinction for instrumental and vocal pedagogy for piano and keyboards. While still a student, he had his first commissions as a sound designer at the Landesheater in Linz. In addition, he was commissioned to compose music for image and art movies, installations and workshops for the city of Linz, the Brucknerhaus, Ars Electronica Center and other cultural institutions. He is very involved in the field of electronic music and has been teaching at the Music School Linz since 2006. Current notable formations include the Chameleon Orchestra (Christian Wirth), Saint Lu in Berlin, The Temporary Jazz Orchestra (Thomas Mandel), Max the Sax, Dermitaziach and ongoing work as a musician and sound designer at theaters.
