Barbora Tomášková is a Slovak composer, who intertwines live electronics with acoustic instruments to create soundscapes where musical direction is determined by intuition and ritual. She uses these alongside sound objects which, when used alongside electronics – become hybrid instruments. Her music is abstract, yet rooted in sounds that sound very familiar. Apart from solo performance, she is also a composer who focuses on writing pieces for classical ensembles, many of which have been performed at festivals in Portugal, Spain, Georgia, Austria or Czech Republic. She studied composition at VŠMU in Bratislava and a masters degree in Portugal.
Special concert performance for electronics, violin and self-built sound objects was commissioned by the NEXT Festival., featuring Rozália Miklášová on violin.
