Florian Hecker's far-reaching work discards all formal 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 reason, his work exists outside the bounds of conventional music terminology or categorization.
Hecker's groundbreaking work articulates both novel and historic developments in electro-acoustic sound and computer music. Through this matrix, he constantly manipulates specially-designed software that blurs boundaries and leaves the listener no longer able to know who is responsible at a given point. It is this collaboration that allows a stretch of our perceptual fabric to the extent where new textures cannot be analyzed by former and definite aesthetic idiosyncrasies.
