Franz Pomassi

Franz Pomassi operates in a permanent laboratory, in a continuous process of probing, exploring, and optimizing musical and extramusical territories. He is engaged in the permanent deconstruction and expansion of familiar ways of hearing. His work moves along the boundaries of the human aural perception system and oversteps given aural parameters of technical equipment. In the course of extensive research work he has developed electro-acoustic machines and processes with which architecture and the physical perception of space can be transformed. He runs the influential label Laton and is Professor at Vienna Art Academy.
