Robert Stokowy is an artist, composer & artistic researcher from Cologne, Germany, currently living in Berlin. His work entails experimental compositions, text-based interventions, audiovisual performances, prints, paintings, photography & installations. All projects are framed by an overarching artistic research process, focussing on topics of sonic (in)stability, sensory balance, as well as qualitative characteristics & potentiality of sound & place. His radical site-specific Sound Installations are based on conceptual scores & phenomenological practices & consist of small sounds which hold very haptic & organic qualities. With his works the artist wants to explore the potentiality of his sonic surroundings & give recipients access to experience new perspectives on their environment.
