BIO/CV

Kyle Luntz is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary Artist working extensively with Sound. He makes interactive installations and music performances involving modified acoustic instruments, live audio processing, experimental composition, electronic sound, sensors and live video. His work references perception, auditory illusions, convergent and divergent timescales and the physicality of sound.

An important aspect of his work is viewer participation; designing musical systems with variables, constraints and tendencies over predetermined outcomes. His work aims to form cause-and-effect relationships between participants’ actions and the resulting soundscapes that are both intuitive and expansive. This collective experience is akin to his interest in the open-source/DIY community, mitigating the singular centrality of the artist and suggesting a sense of connectedness between people, objects and environments.

He continually exercises his creativity working as a Project Designer at Beam Center, a hands-on project-based organization collaborating with NYC public school youth to build projects ranging from wearable electronics to interactive public art sculptures.
