Lukatoyboy is a musician, sound artist and educator from Belgrade, currently based in Berlin, Budapest & Athens.
His sound art practice is based on performances dealing with networks, sound and narrative, using walkie talkies and site specific topics.
Focused on the relation of chances and structures, he creates participatory works with suggested rules, questioning exclusivity and authority of an artist.
He is currently researching alternative methods of listening, using found architecture and proposed distance as tools for discovery.
As a musician, he is mostly involved in electroacoustic improvisation (based on real-time sampling of various objects, toys, voices, and field recordings) using feedback and analogue synthesizers. Lukatoyboy also produces nanotechno and free IDM on a Game Boy.
