About

Günther Berkus, wannabe Music Composer

Controllerist and Modular Synthesizer Explorer, Gadgeteer, Waterphone Player

I hit and scrape things in the streets of Cork City, Ireland, and I record the sounds. I then process the recordings to create beats, drones and complex evolving noises for making original new music, both live and in my studio.

For live performance, I improvise on a Waterphone, a Modular Synthesizer, and on anything else I can make noises with, along with structures which are usually algorithmic and indeterminate.

I have a disability, and I try to promote music making as an activity for people with limitations.
