Lou Bunk (b. 1972) is an American composer and improviser inspired by many forms of avant-garde artistic expression. His sonically rich and intricate music investigates sound and silence through extended instrumental techniques, microtones, amplified found objects, electronics, and generative approaches to texture and form.
