Karl Fousek (b. 1984) is an electronic musician and composer based in Montreal, Quebec. His works explore the sonorities of modular synthesis and custom audio processing software in a variety of contexts from improvised music, to generative music, to drone and minimalism.
As a performer he is committed to the pursuit of a truly "live" electronic music, participating in both concerts for solo synthesizer and in group improvisations alongside electronic and acoustic instrumentation.
