Florian Hecker is an artist, who uses synthetic sounds and the listener’s auditory process to create acoustic spaces of experience. His computer-generated compositions dramatize psychoacoustics as well as objective-physical stimuli and their individual, psychic and physical impacts. Complex multi-channel installations unfold a sculptural presence that shakes the idea of a coherent, continuous world of identifiable coordinates and points of reference.

For "Hallucination, Perspective, Synthesis", the exhibition space of Kunsthalle Wien transforms into a performative, resonating space and stage for sound events that withdraw from linguistic description and categorization. Hecker’s works rather produce a form of immateriality, the perception of which is a subjective process of experience. The examination of compositional post-war Modernity and audiology meets with considerations of Conceptual Art and Minimalism on viewer involvement and subjectivization of the objective given: on perspective and situation.
