Real Name:
Bernhard Gál
Profile:
The Austrian artist, composer and musicologist Bernhard Gál has become internationally known as one of the most prolific sound artists of a younger generation. During the past ten years Gál has created around 50 sound installations and media art projects, combining sound, light, objects, spatial concepts and video projections into intense and often site-specific interdisciplinary art works. He composes music for acoustic instruments and electro-acoustic music, as well as performing live as a (laptop) musician. Since 1997, he has also worked in collaboration with the Japanese artist Yumi Kori ('audio-architectural installations'). Gál runs the record label Gromoga Records and is director of the Austrian art organization ‘sp ce’. His work has been presented in concerts, sound installations, exhibitions, and radio portraits in Europe, Asia, and the Americas and performed by ensembles worldwide. Bernhard Gál’s music has been made available on more than 25 audio publications. In 2005, the German publishing house Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg published the comprehensive catalogue book ‘Installations’, documenting Gál’s intermedia installations since 1999.
