sound installations 2005-2021

die toenen, reactive 6 channel sound-installation, with Agnes Hvizdalek and Thomas Grill, Foto: Julia Tatzreiter

they sound

is an interactive sound installation that understands improvised music as a living organism. Visitors find it in inconspicuous places. It rests hidden in the background and reacts empathetically and attentively to its surroundings. Drawing from a vocabulary of short arrangements and sonic gestures, it comments on its acoustic environment and reacts emotionally to its expressions – with approval, disgust, boredom, withdrawal or joy, not to mention its preference for the element of surprise. read more

Medienkunstlabor Graz Foto: Michael Michlmayr

About the life and death of neutron stars and TV sets

scales the cosmically large to the size of consumer electronics. A composition of pulsar signals and the live stream from Franz Xavers‘ RT03 radio telescope is fed into converted black-and-white television sets. The devices are modified in such a way that the electron beam, which otherwise reproduces the television picture in lines, is concentrated on a point in the center of the screen. Applying a stereo signal causes this point to deflect in the X and Y directions, creating a rotating body. The electron beam slowly destroys the device – burns the screen – until it goes out with a final bright twitch – a micronova. read more

Like you up there

is a contribution to the acoustic land art project: ‚RAPTOR Reloaded‘ by the artist group Alien Productions. Bird defense systems in vineyards are played with electro-acoustic music.

The counter-swarms were arranged from improvised music: voice, violin, synthisizer & trumpet. read more
