Drawing upon conceptual art, software art and meta-media, his work intentionally defies categorisation. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Lisek is also a composer of contemporary music, author of many projects and scores on the intersection of spectral, stochastic, concret music, musica futurista and noise.
Fondazione Mondo Digitale, Rome Artist in Residence: Vicky Clarke and Dave Birchall of Noise Orchestra (UK)
Noise Orchestra are Manchester sound art duo David Birchall and Vicky Clarke.
