Luka Prinčič is a musician, sound designer and media artist. He has been writing music, creating sound art, performing, and manipulating new media in various ways  since mid-’90s. He specialises in computer music, elaborated funk beats, immersive soundscapes, incidental music for live arts & video, and digital media experiments.

His release “Pacification” under Wanda & Nova deViator moniker has been described as “skilfully traversing the boundaries between serious artistic and raving club discourse”. Furthermore, his work with Maja Delak was described as “energetically charged, with a cutting, even punk or underground poetics” and “extremely fresh interplay of different practices from the field of theatre, dance, music and intermedia art” (Liberal Academy’s Golden Bird Award). In 2013 he was awarded with Ksenija Hribar award for his sound design for performances in the field of contemporary dance.

He performed at festivals like Ars Electronica (Linz), EMAF (Osnabrueck), Netmage (Bologna) and Trouble (Brussels), worked at  Ljubljana Digital Media Lab (Ljudmila) and local hackerspace CyberPipe (Ljubljana), exhibited at Kapelica Gallery, Museum of Modern Art and MSUM Ljubljana, and travelled with his work all across Europe and further (New York and New Zealand).

Luka Prinčič is passionate about free software, science fiction, social awareness, critical expressions and peculiarity of contemporary human condition.

He currently works at Emanat Institue and runs Kamizdat, music label for adventurous music, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
