David Petráš: Live Performance
David Petráš (b. 1994) is a Slovakian guitarist who writes electroacoustic music and presents it in diverse formats: from analog reel-to-reel machine, in public listening sessions and as sound installations. Most of the time he is touring as a solo and carrying the entire backline with him – vintage tape machine, amplifier, guitar and lot of instruments. His works can be specified as an experimental music with a various atmospheres and loops.
In 2015 he began to develop an approach focused on principles of analyzing the structures of his pre-existing musical works and transposing them into scores for electro-acoustic taped music. This process has led to the creation of various soundscapes and compositions, which can be heard in his live set.
