Damian T. Dziwis was born 1986 in Chorzów (Poland). The Düsseldorf (Germany) based composer and engineer creates the majority of his multimedia works with audiovisual generative algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence, live coding or DIY electronics. He began his artistic education in instrumental composition under David Graham, followed by electronic composition under Christian Banasik and finalized it with his master studies in electronic composition under Michael Beil in Cologne. Damian’s compositions and installations were played and exhibited at various festivals, for example the „CTM Festival“ in Berlin, „Music Tech Fest“ Stockholm, „inSonic Festival“ at the ZKM Karlsruhe, „Beethoven Fest“ Bonn, the „ACHT BRÜCKEN“ festival in Cologne, „die digitale“ festival in Düsseldorf, „60x60“ Festival in Chicago or the „THE WRONG - New Digital Art Biennale“.
