  • Tarnovski (Gurun Gurun)



In addition to Gurun Gurun (Buh Records), Tarnovski also performs solo and with the groups IQ+1 (mappa), Wabi Experience, The Czech Psychedelic Society Manifesto, or in a duo with Mexican multimedia artist Laura Luna (Genot Centre). He is part of the AV project Telekinetic Assault Group. He also makes music for theatre, field recordings (under the moniker Prosoxi Skylos), and radio documentaries. He often collaborates with Japanese musicians including Dustin Wong, Takako Minekawa, Gallery Six, and Asuna. He has collaborated with the singer Haco on two albums and toured with her in Japan and Europe. He also published a split with the Italian AV project Mai Mai Mai and produced a retrospective 8-CD set by the Czech folk legend Oldrich Janota. He has also performed with Miki Yui, Seth Graham, Black to Comm, Yearning Kru, Dane Law, or Gregg Kowalski. Tarnovski is a curator at the small label Jipangu, which focuses on experimental music and sound art.
