Sound compositionsGoran Vejvoda is a musician and visual artist dealing with modularity and mainly working in sound-related areas. "Capture a square of silence, release a circle of sound" constitutes one of his paradigms. His concerns are a span across various domains including: psychoacoustic phenomena, silence, the origin and disappearance of sounds, their invisibles traces, their socio-political implications, non-emotional listening, the state of electro-acoustic music, future sounds, the process and the final product, the compression generation, the headphones culture, broadcasting...
GV is also interested in the nature and the deep meaning of sound, its modes of representation, dissemination and cross pollination in various fields including, contemporary dance, cultural hybrids, internet, cinema, the media and its visualisation-materialization forms within contemporary art, questioning the numerous points of reference and its permutations.
He never hesitates to question other areas, including the decline of the medium, leftovers of the cultural feast, artificiality, demagogy, process, democratization of the creative act, science, economic and society models, the richness of artistic proposals, evolutionary phenomena, media-arts, words & languages, cybernetics, transversality-interactivity, the notion of sustainability within the arts, outer space thinking, taste and the obsolescence of artistic currents…
With his ‘modular’ unit, - Background -, he creates interdisciplinary performances making use of new technologies, video, dance, happening or fashion... The principle of adaptability, surprise and indeterminacy rules these events.
He has been developing an idiosyncratic body of work in the shape of concerts, exhibitions, records, writing, video, print, photography... Multiple reflections, on these varied fields, produce diverse final products, from the concrete object to the immaterial. He also teaches sound practices and runs workshops.
