Berlin — Germany
François Martig's work uses a wide range of media, from sculptural and sound installations to radio documentaries and photography, in order to react on the specific social and geographical context in which it is shown. "Robinsonhotel", the long-term project at the centre of Martig's artistic practice, examines the landscape as a social, economical and political space which is subject to ongoing transformation. The artist is furthermore interested in site-specific sound broadcasting. In addition to his visual work, he produces live sound and music performances as well as soundtracks combining soundscapes, field recordings, electro-acoustic and noise music. Martig, who also works as a sound engineer for movies, has collaborated with numerous other sound artists such as Els Viaene, Philippe Petitgenet, Aymeric de Tapol and Mattin.
Description of work with field recording
I don't make difference between field recording and straight documentary. Specially recorded for radio documentary or experimental music or sound installations, the sound I produce is added to electronic sound elements most of the time.
