Sound art

full creative value

And it is through the performance at WORM that Mukarno, through a rite of passage, delivers the fragments of an object that was the life partner in the artist’s journey as a composer. To break, to be reborn; not to be attached to an object because it is a means of creating something that remains in our ears and in our heart, soul.


With Philemon Mukarno we enter the mysterious world of musical composition. An art made of sounds, notes and technique: something that happens in the mind and spirit and that is not materially palpable.

Philemon Mukarno

This is the central “node of the conversation” with the composer, who carries with him an object that all common mortals use, but in his hands it becomes a container of spirituality and technicality: the computer. For Mukarno, the computer is only a means of being able to create his art. Inside it there are many of his most important musical compositions.

Philemon Mukarno,

Mukarno is a unique figure in Contemporary Music. The use of electronics is one of his trademarks. The compositions demonstrate in their own way his original ideas and his strife for intense expressiveness, in a musical language that does not refer to tradition.
