In his installations, live performances and publications, Florian Hecker explores specific compositional developments of post-war modernity, electro-acoustic music, and other, non-musical disciplines. An implicit influence throughout is the work of experimental composer, Iannis Xenakis.
Hecker dramatizes space, time and self-perception in his sonic works by isolating specific sounds, often evoking sensations and memories, by creating intense, immersive experiences.
For Music for Museums, Hecker performs a new work entitled Reformulation.
Doors open 30 minutes before performance starts. This is a standing event, with limited seating provided on request
