Kris Limbach (born in 1978) is a audiovisual artist, film maker and curator residing in Berlin.
Thinking audiovisual art coming from experimental sound, he is also heavily involved in film
projects, exploring constantly formats and aesthetics of cinema.
In his sound art work he uses film-editing techniques, prepared drums, tape manipulation , no input
mixing and a vast amount of raw and processed fieldrecordings. He released on labels such as
Richard Garets s ́ Contour Editions, Staaltape, Modisti, Framework Radio, Agxivatein and
collaborated with artists like John Bock, Pierce Warnecke, Hopek Quirin, Jochen Arbeit, Rinus van
Alebeek, Rieko Okuda, Juan Antonio Nieto aka Pangea, Lisa Müller-Trede and more.
His experimental feature films “Music for dysfunctional Airports” and “The Lost Color” were shown internationally on film and media art festivals alike.
In his film works he wanders between highly abstract live film- and video – manipulation and
feature-like experimental cinema. His long term work in set-recording, composition and scoring,
especially for performance artist and film maker John Bock influenced his unique process oriented
approach to film making.
He curates, together with Pierce Warnecke and Seiji Morimoto, the emitter micro label and emitter
micro festival, a biennial experimental sound Festival in Berlin. He curates evenings of
experimental music and performance in various places, ranging from a emitter night at the
Kontakte19 festival at Akademie der Künste to a experimental streaming series T.A.T.V. at
Ausland Berlin. He s frequently collaborating with the artist collective Aktuelle Architektur der Kultur (AADK). At the moment he is finishing his third experimental feature film “Ohnmacht” that will be premiered in late 2022.
