After completing Secondary Grammar School in Blansko, Lucie Vítková (*1985 in Boskovice) studied accordion and music composition at the Brno Conservatory (2004 – 2010). In 2008, she began studying composition under associate professor Martin Smolek and improvisation under Jaroslav Šťastný at the Music Faculty of the Janáček Academy of the Performing Arts in Brno, from which she has earned a bachelor’s degree.
In 2011 – 2012, she spent a year as an exchange student at the Hague Royal Conservatory, where she actively participated in the cultural scene as a composer and member of three improvisational ensembles – the Electroacoustic Ensemble of the Sonology Department (accordion, harmonica, voice), DaMu (tap dance), and the Atelier Ensemble of Royal Conservatoire (accordion, harmonica, voice). She is currently studying composition under Michael Pisaro at the California Institute of the Arts (USA). She has attended numerous courses in composition (Richard Ayres, Christian Wolff, Elliott Sharp, Thomas Buckner, Rebecca Saunders, Petr Kotík, Phill Niblock, Michael Schumacher, Bernhard Lang, Rod Paton, Walter Zimmerman, Fabián Panisello, David Rosenboom, John Tilbury, and Larry Polansky), and has also participated in the international ÖNCZkekwist project, a 28-member improv orchestra, with which she has appeared and recorded on ÖRF in Vienna. She also appears regularly at contemporary art exhibition openings at galleries in Prague and Brno (Hugo Demartini, Martin Dobeš, Václav Krůček, Vladimír Skrepl, Zbyněk Sekal, Viktor Hulík, Petr Nikl, Jindřich Zeithamml, Alice Nikitinová, Jan Turner, Els Moes, Nosch, and Dalibor Chatrný), for which she always creates compositions on the boundary between composition and improvisation.
Her long-term collaborators include artist Pavel Korbička (Acoustic Paintings, Medialog) and photographer Jolana Havelková (Proposal for Change of Sheet Music). She is a member of Brno-based improv ensemble Marijan and the Dunami Ensemble, also performs with the Jewish group Hachucpa, and has spent the past four years teaching tap dance at the JAMU Theatre Faculty.
