Felix began recording and performing electronic new wave music at the age of 12. After a period of post-industrial experiments in the early 90s he turned to futuristic pop music and launched the independent record label “Gagarin Records” in 1998. Over the past decade he has performed at over 100 international music and media arts festivals including Sonar, Transmediale, Mutek, ISEA, Wien Modern and Ars Electronica.
Since 2001, Kubin has been writing and producing radio plays for national radio stations WDR, BR, DLR, SWF and Vienna’s ORF Kunstradio. His radio plays were awarded several prizes, amongst them Prix Phonurgia Nova (for „Säugling, Duschkopf, Damenschritte“), Best Radio Play Of The Year and Best Audio Book (for „Orphée Mécanique“). He has also composed music for film and theatre productions, including work by Christoph Schlingensief, Mariola Brillowska, Marie Losier, Martha Colburn and Schorsch Kamerun. Since 2005, his commissions include writing compositions for chamber orchestras. He has created exclusive works for a.o. “Internationales Musikfest” (Hamburg), “MaerzMusik” (Berlin), “Art’s Birthday” (Berlin), “NDR das neue werk” (Hamburg), “Borealis” (Bergen), “Presences Électronique” (Paris) and the Institut für Medienarchäologie (Vienna). In 2017, he hosted 20 episodes of his live radio show “Me & My Rhythm Box” for Savvy Funk, the dOCUMENTA 14 radio.
Furthermore, Kubin has been invited to give workshops and lectures at art institutions and universities in Europe, the USA, Canada and South America. From 2013-2015 he taught experimental film sound at the HfBK (university of fine arts) in Hamburg.
