Robert Stokowy is a sound artist, composer & artistic researcher from Cologne, Germany. His works are experimental compositions, text-based interventions, audiovisual performances and (radical site-specific) installations. All projects are framed by an overarching artistic research process, focussing on inner structural characteristics of sonic environments. With his work the artist wants to explore the epistemic and creative potentiality of his sonic surroundings. His aim is to give access, to experience new perspectives in our environment, by exploring the potentiality of sonic and visual structures in our urban surroundings. Emphasis is put on the aspect of the audible visuals as well as visual potential of sound. Using an interdisciplinary approach, his works investigate modes and possibilities of sonic accessibility. In short sound is used as a tool to understand one’s environment and the human condition.
