Born in Moscow and living in Paris, Elena Gantchikova is a high profile Franco-Russian multidisciplinary experimental artist, composer, pianist, pedagog, musical and art journalist.

All interests, skills, time and efforts of Elena Gantchikova are focused on experiments in the field of art synthesis, combining traditional techniques and the latest technologies.

Each of her works is addressed to all channels of human perception.

Her first conceptual multimedia project, combining his works in electroacoustic and symphonic music, photos, videos, installations, sound sculptures, ballet and poetry, was presented to the public in 1995 at the Berlin Academy of Arts and the am Marstall gallery.

Her advisor was Hugues Dufourt.

Later Elena did research at Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel (Switzerland), as well as archives of the University of Basel.
