Adam Łukawski is a Polish composer of contemporary classical and experimental music. His music is often inspired by aleatoric techniques, unique harmonic systems, Shepard tones, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies. He develops a computer software using his theory of a “Periodic Fractal of Shepard-Risset frequency sets” – a new taxonomy of musical elements allowing very quick music composition. Adam studied at Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Richard Ayres and Willem Jeths receiving a Masters’ degree in Music Composition with honors (cum laude), and at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London with Julian Anderson. He became a laureate of several international composition competitions including IBLA Grand Prize (New York, USA), Golden Key International Composition Competition (Vienna, Austria), New Music Generation-2019 (Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan), In Modo di Lutoslawski (Warsaw, Poland). His works are published by Donemus Publishing in The Hague, are performed widely across Europe and received premieres at, among others, The Dutch National Opera & Ballet in Amsterdam, Concert Hall of The Polish Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in Warsaw, Barbican Milton Court in London, Ehrbar Hall in Vienna.
