Lukasz Szalankiewicz (alias ZENIAL) – He is an electronic music performer and sound artist. Lukasz is a member of the Polish Society for Electroacustic Music (PSeME) and the Polish Society for Contemporary Music (the Polish subsection of the ISCM). His formative artistic years began in the early 90s with an immersion in the demoscene —an early computer community based around transcending hardware limitations. The multimedia nature of demoscene has remained an important element of his solo artistic work, where sound is often combined with visuals and influenced by a conceptual framework.
