Stefan Tiefengraber – DOWM
The sound artist Stefan Tiefengraber is presenting his latest sound-performance project DOWM. Three walkmans, three effect pedals, two mixers, a mini-synthesizer, microphones and several feedback loops create a noise-scape that ends in silence and emptiness.
In this project, Tiefengraber refers to his artistic method of working, which he implements not only in performances but also in his installation projects. He extends the predefined functions of the used devices by experimenting with them and using unconventional applications. With this way he achieves new and unpredictable results.
Stefan Tiefengraber lives and works in Linz, Austria.
Since 2016 organiser of sound art concerts and co-founder of Tresor Linz. 2020 Jury member of the Prix Ars Electronica. 2021 Excellence Award 24th Japan Media Arts Festival.
His work ranges from kinetic sound installations and interactive installations to audio-video noise performances. Tiefengraber experiments with the modification of devices, which are originally manufactured for different purposes. Combined with the perception of the audience, this experimental attempt of exploring old and new materials leads him to new and unpredictable results.
The artist’s work was shown at Japan Media Arts Festival 2021 (Tokyo/Japan), Galerie gerken (Berlin/Germany), Ars Electronica Festival (Linz/Austria), TodaysArt 2014 (Den Haag/Netherlands), New Media Gallery (Vancouver/Canada), 16th Media Art Biennale WRO 2015 (Wroclaw/Poland), Blaues Rauschen (Bochum/Germany), …
Nikola Vukovic (trumpet), Ivar Krizic (double bass) and Tin Dzaferovic (double bass) are long time friends and colleagues who met on Kunst Uni Graz back in 2013. After years of playing in different Jazz and improvised music projects, Vazdan Trio was formed as an opportunity to explore different sound possibilities in an unconventional setting.
