Eliška Cílková

Eliška Cílková (*1987) studied composition and orchestra conducting in Prague (Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory, BA with Bořivoj Suchý), in Bratislava (Vysoká Škola Múzických Umění), and in Vienna (Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst), where she also studied multimedia composition and electroacoustic work under Professor Reinhard Karger. She is currently studying under Hanuš Bartoň at HAMU for her master’s degree in composition.

Although her work is oriented primarily towards modern contemporary classical music and electroacoustic projects, she is also heavily engaged in work for documentary films and media (Artur Radvanský, dir. M. Slunéčko; Genpatsu Fukushima Movie, dir. L. Hashimoto).
Her Chernobyl-related work includes the project Sounds of Chernobyl Zone, which includes an audio exposition and interactive installation. A related project is the CD Pripyat Piano, based on the discovery and playing of nine abandoned pianos that remained behind in the Chernobyl Zone.
