Hein Schoer
(*1976) is a soundscaper and a musician. He holds a diploma in audio engineering, a BA in Recording Arts, and a MA in Cultural Science. He received his PhD from Maastricht University in 2014 for the Sounding Museum research project.
He is active in research, education, and art, often combining the three. From 2008 to 2014 his homebase was Fontys School for Fine and Performing Arts, Tilburg, NL. During that time he also regularly taught at Hochschule Darmstadt, GER, and worked with the NONAM (Nordamerika Native Museum, Zürich, CH) and the AMS (Aktives Museum Spiegelgasse, Wiesbaden, GER). He lectures, conducts workshops, exhibits, and performs.
His preferred subject is the soundscape and its manifold interconnections with fields such as anthropology, pedagogy, design, and composition. Current research focuses on identity formation and cultural skill development through sound for pupils and inmates of a youth penitentiary. He also cooks.
