KRK, founded in 2005 by George Cremaschi and Matthew Ostrowski, has devoted itself to a muscular integration of electronic and acoustic soundworlds, drawing on their more than 40 years of combined experience working in a variety of genres. Their concise, spontaneous compositions unite formal tautness with a fierce yet controlled energy, melding real-time musique concrete with virtuosic extended technique to open up undiscovered spaces in electro-acoustic performance. Building on their experience, with more than 60 concerts in over a dozen countries to their credit, KRK continues to innovate and redefine contemporary improvisational practice.
