Anton is an artist, cellist and musician based in Norwich, with a background in performances in avant-garde, experimental and improvised music. His performances and broadcasts include BBC Radio 3, Danish Radio, SR2, Sweden, Deutschland Rundfunk, WDR, Germany and ORT, Austria.

In response to Beatrice Gibson’s exhibition, Crippled Symmetries, pupils from Abbeyhill and Leith Walk Primary Schools worked with artist Catherine Payton and composer Anton Lukoszevieze, to explore themes of abstraction and chance in adventure play, music and high finance.

Pupils and teachers visited the exhibition in 2015 and took part in a workshop led by Catherine, performing musical compositions inspired by the Fluxus music that features in Beatrice’s film Solo for Rich Man. Anton, an artist and musician, who also features in the film, continued this exploration of avant-garde music making, with a workshop in the schools, further drawing on ideas of Fluxus, ‘open-score’, non-hierarchical forms of music making, and the teachings of radical 1960s music educators John Paynter and Peter Aston.
