Kromproom Live: Journey with Cyborgs - NASA's Spacewalkers, Room 2009

In 2009, Piotr Kromproom Krompiewski, an electronic music artist hailing from Poland, delved into the realms of space and human ingenuity with his composition titled "Cyborg (NASA's Spacewalkers)." It's a fascinating exploration into the intersection of art, science, and technology, driven by Kromproom's lifelong passion for space exploration.

Kromproom's interest in the cosmos began at a young age, nurtured by a curiosity about the mysteries beyond our atmosphere. This curiosity found expression in his music, where he sought to capture the awe and wonder inspired by space exploration. His composition "Cyborg (NASA's Spacewalkers)" is a testament to this fascination.

Inspired by the real-life endeavors of astronauts like NASA's Robert L. Curbeam, Jr. and ESA's Christer Fuglesang, Kromproom sought to imbue his music with the authentic voices and experiences of those who ventured into the vastness of space. He meticulously incorporated genuine dialogue sequences sourced from NASA's archives, infusing his music with a sense of authenticity and immersion.

But Kromproom's creativity didn't stop there. He embraced the live performance aspect of his music, capturing the energy and dynamism of his electronic compositions through webcam recordings in his home studio. This added a personal touch to his work, inviting listeners into his creative process and allowing them to experience the music in a more intimate way.
