"ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI , a Polish experimental musician whose work amplified the boundaries of noise music (and also its volume) died today, according to his friend and collaborator Anton Lukoszevieze. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just 10 weeks ago. He was 55. ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI was regarded in experimental music circles as one of noise music's most fearlessly extreme practitioners. Stories circulate that his music once cracked a toilet at San Francisco's Bloody Angle Compound studios; a 2001 performance at Montreal's FCMM, playing needle-nosed sine waves tuned to the resonant frequency of the room, sparked a fire in a speaker and sent chunks of the ceiling tumbling to the floor. But he was also known as one of noise music's most contemplative thinkers. (When a reporter asked him if he was afraid of damaging his hearing, following the FCMM performance, he replied, "Sound is like a wild animal; it will only hurt you if you are afraid of it".
