“Electricity is what separates us from animals” – Thurston Moore

KosmoSCore·Blitz is a sound experiment for electric phenomena and electromagnetic fields. The setup features analogue electronic feedback, uncommon sensors and a tiny yet fierce sounding Tesla coil. Scientist-artist Daniel Maszkowicz creates multi-channel soundtracks with which he immerses his audience in a subtle hypnosis of low-frequency immersions and sonified brainwaves. With his sensory laboratory, he qualitatively studies psychoacoustic and binaural effects on consciousness, with a specific orientation towards the use of electricity.

Sometimes, Daniel Maszkowicz deploys his 16-channel portable Kosmosmonium setup with small speakers spread among the public.

Sometimes, Daniel Maszkowicz deploys his bigger Tesla Coil, and the project takes the name of FULGUR.

Daniel Maszkowicz (Daniel Siemaszko) is a Geneva-based research engineer, film programmer, multidisciplinary performer, composer and producer. Daniel Maszkowicz works with SuperCollider and with electrical machines that were once used in various laboratories. Co-founder of the electroacoustic jazz duo INFLUUT and electroacoustic duo BIBLIOTEQ MDULAIR, his solo project KOSMOSCORE uses various types of sound immersions to create multichannel sound pieces. With his machines he generates soft and noisy ambient sounds, for a brainwave immersion with multiple binaural effects.

Daniel Maszkowicz is also interested in the sonification of scientific data and autonomous sound installations. He has presented his work internationally and has contributed to several original soundtracks and publications. He gives seminars with a view at the crossroads between science and art, involving the engineer and the artist. He has presented several sound installations with algorithmic musical compositions in several galleries.
