Lasse-Marc Riek

Lasse-Marc Riek (1975, Germany) uses different forms of expression in his producing. His works are interdisciplinary and can be conceived as groups of works of both visual art (action and conceptual art) and sound art. His art of sound can be described in terms such as acoustic ecology, biophony and soundscapes. Here, Riek uses acoustic field recordings, storing them with different recording media, editing, archiving and presenting them in different contexts.

 

Since 1997, he has operated internationally with exhibitions, concerts, lectures and projects and given guest performances in galleries, art museums, churches and museums. Contributions in public media as well as in broadcast. Awards, Scholarships and Artist-in-Residence programs realised in Europa and Africa.
