Vincent Wikström, *1987 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany
My scope of work spans from studio productions, film and video game music/sound, live performances to interactive installations. Many of my works pose questions about the mechanics of music and hearing habits. In the series Historical Audio Documents, sounds from thousands of years ago are reconstructed by a mysterious apparatus. Of course, no one knows if the reconstructed sounds are accurate, nevertheless listeners will imagine their very own versions by judging the reconstructions. Since 2015, I experiment with digitally animated musical scores to synchronize musicians and electronic music. Those video scores act, visible for the audience, as additional protagonists.
