Ivan Palacký (born 1967, Czech Republic) is a musician and architect. In the 1980s and at the beginning of the 1990s, Palacký played with various groups and took part in several music projects. At the end of the 1990s he founded the guitar/double bass/bassoon group Sledě, živé sledě (Herring, live herring) and since 2003 he has performed in an audiovisual duo called Carpets Curtains (Koberce, záclony) with VJ Věra Lukášová.
He “writes” a sound diary of his journeys collecting excerpts of stories, weird sounds and various acoustic mistakes. He likes to take part in one-shot improvisational groups or duos (such as with Cremaster, Ruth Barberán and Margarida Garcia, Will Guthrie, Andrea Neumann, Klaus Filip, Steve Beresford, Toshimaru Nakamura, Tetuzi Akiyama among others), as well as playing solo performances. Since 2005 his main interest has been to dig out sounds from an amplified 1970s Dopleta knitting machine. In 2009 Palacký founded the label Uceroz and since then he has released two studio albums recorded with his most frequent collaborators.
