is one of the monickers of Catalin Matei, a Romanian sound-artist living in Bucharest. Sillyconductor’s main focus has always been on classical music and its relationship with mathematics: projects such as Ventichitara (a selfmade improvisation instrument built out of USB fans), 100 Catronomes (a golden rendition of Ligeti’s Poeme Symphonique employing 100 Maneki Neko cats) or the Pianosaurus (a post-modern mechanical piano) explore the overlapping shapes between technology, classical music and humour. Recently he’s been working with artificial instinct generative structures in A/V domains, recording protests around Europe or collaborating with hyper-spectral music guru Iancu Dumitrescu.
