About the artist:
JOHN DUNCAN was born in the United States, currently lives and works in Bologna.
John Duncan portrays his work as a catalyst, inciting a transmission of energy through which he seeks to compel the audience to actively participate in the process of investigation and self-discovery. His lengthy career of electroacoustic intensity and confrontational performance art events is the result of rigorous investigations into a number of arcane, metaphysical, and at times transgressive themes.?His audio releases are all considered by critics and composers alike to be benchmarks in the field of experimental sound and contemporary music.
