Matthew Ostrowski – electronics
George Cremaschi – contrabass, electronics

Drawing on their more than 40 years of combined experience working in
a variety of genres with such artists as Evan Parker, John Zorn, and
Nicolas Collins, KRK is a collaborative project which aims to
synthesize and interpret the neo-postmodern musical landscape. Ghosts
of reductionism, noise music, free jazz, and the classical tradition
all may or may not appear in any given performance. To date, KRK has
performed in Austria, Belgium, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Switzerland,
Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia,
Bulgaria, Italy, Germany and the US.

A New York City native, MATTHEW OSTROWSKI has been working with
electronics since the early 1980s, working in improvised music, music
theater, and audio installations, with a continuing interest in
density of microevents, rapid change, and using technology to stretch
the bounds of perception and experience. He has also worked
extensively as an improvisor, having played with such luminaries as
Anthony Coleman, Andrea Parkins, Nicolas Collins, John Butcher,
o.blaat, Paul Lovens, Ikue Mori, Anne Wellmer, David Linton, Charles
Cohen, Alfred Zimmerlin, and a host of others. His work appears on
over a dozen recordings.
His work has been seen on four continents, including the Wien Modern
Festival, the Kraków Audio Art Festival, Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, PS 1
and The Kitchen in New York, the Melbourne Festival, and Unyazi, the
first festival of electronic music on the African continent. He has
received a NYFA Fellowship for Computer Arts, awards from the Media
Alliance, Arts International, and many others, and was a nominee for
the prestigious Alpert Award in 2006.

GEORGE CREMASCHI was born in New York City, and studied music and
composition there. He has played with, and composed for, dancers, rock
bands, installation artists, improvisers, poets, film, folk musicians,
theater groups, orchestras, and pop divas. He has worked with a long
list of fantastic artists: Greg Goodman, Saadet Türköz, Matthew
Ostrowski, Nicolas Collins, Evan Parker, Trinh T. Minh-Ha, Liz Allbee,
Burkhard Stangl, Mats Gustafsson, Kai Fagaschinski, Lê Quan Ninh, Gino
Robair, Rova Saxophone Quartet, Frédéric Blondy, Christof Kurzmann,
Nels Cline, Andrea Parkins, Paul Lovens, Marshall Allen, Butch Morris,
and many others.

As an interpreter, he has performed works by Morton Feldman, James
Tenney, John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Cornelius Cardew, Roscoe Mitchell,
Christian Wolff, Wadada Leo Smith, Krzysztof Penderecki, Jon Raskin,
Ana-Maria Avram, Louis Andriessen and Matthew Goodheart among many

He has appeared on over 30 recordings on the Apestaartje, Evolving
Ear, Black Saint, Leo, Beak Doctor, Emanem, Rastascan, Music & Arts,
Nine Winds and 482 Music labels. He currently lives in Tábor, Czech
Republic, where he is a curator and administrator at CESTA, an
