Born in 1975 in Novo Mesto, Slovenia, Igor Lumpert began his training at the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, Austria. During this period, he was a member of the band Sidewinders. After completing his studies, Lumpert was invited by bassist Reggie Workman to study at the New School in New York, NY. He moved to New York in 2000.
He returns to happylucky no.1 with "Resistance of the Earth”. In 2011 Igor was commissioned to create a piece for a closure of the European Capital of Culture. With multimedia artist Zeljka Blaksic he created “Resistance of the Earth” which combines several artistic genres; from video, performance, 16 mm film to live music. The theme of the project covers the world of natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and tornadoes.
