lucie-vitkovaLucie Vítková is a composer, improviser and performer (accordion, harmonica, voice and tap dance) from the Czech Republic. Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while her improvisation practice explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. In her recent work, she is interested in the musical legacy of Morse Code and the social-political aspects of music and art in relation to everyday life.

Lucie studied at Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (CZ), Royal Conservatory in The Hague (NL), California Institute of the Arts in Valencia (USA) and at Universität der Künste in Berlin (D). She has studied with professors Martin Smolka, Jaroslav Šťastný, Martijn Padding, Gillius van Bergijk, Michael Pisaro and Marc Sabat.

Lucie is currently based in New York City and is enrolled at Columbia University as Visiting Scholar with Prof. George Lewis.
