Lucie Stepankova graduated in Sound Arts from the London College of Communication, works at Phonica Records and runs a monthly radio show on London's Netil Radio. She currently explores electro-acoustic composition and performance (under her alias Avsluta) and free improvisation. Her work in these fields is focusing on creating and inhabiting environments which could be actual, possible or imaginary. Drawing inspiration from Taoism and Japanese Aesthetics, as well as modern Western art movements, her performances are joining together the emotive and spiritual with the highly aestheticized and conceptual and blur the line between these two worlds. She works with analog synthesis, field recordings, personal objects, and electronics.'
