Florian Hecker

Concert at Kiasma Theatre on Sunday 17.4. at 15:00
Organized in collaboration with Charm of Sound

Florian Hecker was born in 1975 in Augsburg. He currently lives and works in Kissing. Hecker has been working with computer music, independently and in collaboration with other artists such as Russell Haswell, Carsten Höller, Florian Pumhösl, Peter Rehberg, Marcus Schmickler, Yasunao Tone since 1996. Hecker’s works emphasize the connection of most recent as well as historic developments in computer music, hard- and software. Often working closely together with software engineers and scientists, his recent productions incorporate psycho-acoustic effects disorientating the listener's spatial perception in live presentations and studio works. His full length solo recording, Sun Pandämonium, received the Award of Distinction at the Prix Ars Electronica 2003.
