Dominik Brun

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Dominik Brun is a Swiss musician and composer based in Athens. Dominik produces and performs electronic sounds under the name Karatech. In 1999, he began collaborating with the underground party label Pharmakon, organising and performing at secret parties in Zürich and other Swiss cities. Since then, Dominik has composed and produced three albums: Der Tatendrang des Datenstrangs, XAOS, and ΔΕΟΣ — which also included a recording of the live project Lebenssequenzen.

Throughout his career, Dominik has both composed and performed with a variety of hardware and software, constantly interrogating the means by which electronic music is made.

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
