Peter KUTIN is a Vienna based artist. He works with sound across genres. His live-performances or installations hold a physical and psychological impact and might throw you as much off balance as they will embrace you.

In his most recent works, he implements kinetic sculptures or light systems as main performative elements. In doing so he attempts to dissolve the presence of the human performer to a maximum. He creates a dialogue between the trinity of ‘object-sound-light’ and the audience. His pieces aim to open up a corridor that leads to aesthetic encounters. They have been exhibited, commissioned, performed or screened at various occasions and venues across the globe.
For the composition “Desert Bloom”, a cooperation with the german composer and pioneer of sound-art Christina Kubisch & his long time collaborator Florian Kindlinger, the trio received the Karl Szucka award in 2016. In 2019 his kinetic instrument “Torso” received the Golden Nica at the Ars Electronica festival.
Kutin’s latest release is EPDEMO, together with his trio PLF (Peter Kutin, Lukas König, Freya Edmondes), which appeared on Opal Tapes in early 2022.
