Eric Caligaris relates sound works to visual arts, sociology and architecture. Born in 1965, he has practiced several instruments since the seventies and formed his ear with intensive radio practice for more than thirty years, thus developing selective affinities in contemporary music, especially with regard to plastic and spatial issues. After playing in various musical ensembles, he embarked on an electroacoustic, acousmatic sound research marked by fieldrecordings and improvised performative practices. His sound work in film music and in relation to visual artists and authors includes a large part of recycling and the use of ordinary objects as computer composition materials.
