Kris Limbach

Christoph “Kris” Limbach (born in 1978) is a sound artist residing in Berlin. Limbach graduated in applied physics from FU-Berlin and his physical knowledge merges into his sound and art work. His emphasis is always on exploring sound and image in an experimental way. Although his focus is on sound, he is involved in film projects since 1998, exploring always formats and aesthetics of cinema. His first experimental film, Cuento Incompleto was published in 2005 and since then he has collaborated with various artists performing live film screenings using expanded cinema techniques. This work for film has an outstanding influence on his current sound-art works, using film-editing techniques and film sound aesthetics for his sound pieces like the ongoing begin_ if _ () sound project and live performances. He released on labels such as Richard Garets’ Contour Editions, Staaltape, Modisti, Framework Radio and more. He does sound engineering and installation for John Bock in addition to production and mastering work at Emitter19 Studios.

He is part of the audiovisual trio Panoptik. He curates, together with Pierce Warnecke, the emitter micro Festival , a biennial experimental sound Festival in Berlin.
