Over the past years the terms sound installation and sound art have been used to describe a wide variety of interdisciplinary art making. The terms have been adopted with reference to any number of works which in some way integrate the element of sound generally in a non-conventional manner and which may otherwise be hard to categorize. In his talk Robin Minard situates his own work in relation to these terms, dealing with concepts of acoustic design in architecture, the acoustic function of sculptural elements in his work and the invention of new musical forms and new compositional methods. The talk includes examples of works he has created for various spaces since the mid 1980's. (Robin Minard)

Robin Minard was born in Montreal in 1953. He studied music composition in Canada and Paris. Since the early 1980's a major part of his work has focused in the area of sound installation art. From 1992 to 1996 he was lecturer on the subject of sound installation at the electroacoustic studio of the Berlin Technical University. Since 1997 he has been professor for electroacoustic composition and sound design at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt and the Bauhaus University, Weimar where he is also director of the electroacoustic studio SeaM. He has been artist in residence at the Canada Council Paris Studio, the DAAD Belrin Artists Programme, the Banff Centre for the Arts (Canada), Künstlerhof Schreyahn and Schloß Wiepersdorf (Germany), the Institut für Elektronische Musik, Graz (Austria), Het Apollohuis, Eindhoven (Holland); Villa Serpentata, Olevano Romano (Italy), the Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, Pittsburgh (USA) and IRCAM / Centre Pompidou, Paris.
