Tatiana Gerasimenok is a composer, researcher, and multi artist. She lives in Leipzig and Moscow. In her work she is interested in the combination of different art forms as a prototype of the coexistence of different senses of the human body. She was born in Belarus and graduated from the Mogilev Rimsky-Korsakov Music College as a musicologist. She studied composition at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. In 2019, she was selected as composer for the MATA Festival in New York, and she was granted residency fellowships at the art residencies Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, Künstlerhaus Salzwedel, and the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Creation Residence in Spain. In 2018, she took part in the project No Medici at the International Darmstadt Summer Course. She won the ‘ad libitum’ composition competition (Baden-Württemberg) and ‘Temporality of the Impossible’ composition competition (Belgium/England). Her works were played on Radio Pulsar CISM in Montreal in 2018 and shown in the exhibition of graphic scores Sound Graphics in the Russian National Library in Saint Petersburg. She has also been selected as a composer for the Académie Voix Nouvelles at Royaumont Abbey, the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, the EBMF International Summer Academy for Young Composers in New York and the Sixth International Young Composers Academy in Chaykovsky, Russia.

In the framework of her fellowship she will work on a piece for large ensemble where she seeks to combine the primeval with the latest times of mankind. Thus, wild and instinctive human behavior and archaic sounds will be combined with the latest technologies and modern human reality.
