30.06.1936, Warsaw



Piotr Kamler was born in Warsaw in 1936. His artistic training goes through the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and continues in France, in the Fine Arts in Paris, and the RTF Research Service, headed by Pierre Schaeffer, which has the mission to support authors who associate image and sound.

For the soundtracks of his extraordinary avant-garde animations, he almost invariably collaborated with many of the most important electronic musicians, including Iannis Xenakis, François Bayle, Bernard Parmegiani, Ivo Malec, and Luc Ferrari.
