Lasse-Marc Riek (1975, Germany) uses different forms of expression in his production methods. His works are interdisciplinary and can be conceived as groups of works of both visual art (action and conceptual art) and sound art. His art of sound can be described in terms such as acoustic ecology, bio acoustics and soundscapes.
Here, Riek uses field recordings, storing them with different recording media, editing, archiving, and presenting them in different contexts.
Since 1997, he has operated internationally with exhibitions, releases, concerts, lectures, workshops, awards, and projects and given performances in galleries, art museums, churches, and universities. He has made contributions in the public media as well as in public radio and received scholarships and artist-in-residence programs realized in Europe and Africa.
Riek is the owner of Gruenrekorder label, which is specialised on soundscape music and sound art.
The concert starts after closing of the exhibition 'Schattenpfade Helsinki' by Lasse-Marc Riek & Verena Freyschmidt.

Multichannel sounds, Paper Art, Light
Opening Hours: 14-18, Tue-Fri
The walk-in installation piece “Schattenpfade” by Verena Freyschmidt and a multichannel sound-composition by Lasse-Marc Riek. The cut-out traces abstract forms and structures are emphasized in their interplay with light. Emanating from multiple locations in the space, the composition of natural and artificial sounds completes the cut-out and lets emerge in an enticing atmosphere of sound, light, and shadow. This work is designed and composed for the Akusmata. As part of the exhibition, there will be a Gruenrekorder stand with recordings from the publication catalog.
