Florian Hecker

* 1975, Germany

Born in 1975 in Augsburg (Germany) and lives and works in Vienna and Kissing (Germany). Undoubtedly far-reaching, Hecker’s work discards all format habits embedded in our listening patterns. In this process, computer-generated sounds evolve into a phantasmagoria of acoustic impressions where, spatial movement and psychoacoustic phenomena intertwine. For this same reason, conventional music terminology would be too limited for any form of categorisation. In this work, specifically designed software is constantly manipulated by the artist; between both, the boundaries blur and the listener no longer knows who is responsible. It is this collaboration that continously allows a stretch of our perceptual fabric, where new textures cannot be analysed by former and definite aesthetic idiosyncrasies.
