Florian Hecker works with synthetic sound in performance and installation dealing with specific compositional developments of post-war modernity, electroacoustic music, and non-musical disciplines. Since 1996, Hecker has given a multitude of performances, audio presentations and concerts internationally, both in major concert halls and at festivals for contemporary electronic music. His most recent collaboration with philosopher Reza Negarestani, A Script for Machine Synthesis (2015), was premiered at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Formulation (FLV Project) (2014) was presented as part of the inaugural exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris. Recent exhibitions and performances include those at Künstlerhaus Graz, Austria and Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis (2015); Sadie Coles HQ, London; MD72, Berlin; Articulação, Lumiar Cité, Lisbon; documenta 13, Kassel; and Nouveau Festival, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (all 2012). Hecker has an extensive discography with over 25 releases, including: Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera (Pan, Berlin, 2015); Articulação (Editions Mego, Vienna, 2014); Chimerization (Editions Mego, Vienna, 2012); Speculative Solution (Editions Mego, Vienna, 2011); and Acid in the Style of David Tudor (Editions Mego, Vienna, 2009). Hecker was nominated for Berlin’s Preis der Nationalgalerie in 2015.

The exhibition Formulations stages a comprehensive sequence of Hecker’s sound pieces in a complex dramatization of auditory events and sonic objects, in close relation to the particular architecture of the Culturgest gallery in Porto.

Curator: Miguel Wandschneider
