Christoph De Boeck approaches sound as a visual and tactile medium. In his installations sound turns out to be a tangible presence. The spatial organisation of sound sources, the choice of materials in media and the method for sound transmission all are part of De Boeck’s permanent research into how sound relates to an environment and to human presence. The dynamic spatialisation of sound confronts the visitor with the idea of acoustic energy as an artistic object and even as a visual principle.
From 2002 until 2102 Christoph De Boeck was co-artistic director of deepblue, the interdisciplinary production structure he created together with Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki. Within this structure he has written, in collaboration with Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki, concepts for performances and he developed spatialised installations for data and audio for those performances. From 2013 Christoph De Boeck continues his work together with Arnoudt Jacobs in Overtoon vzw.
