Stephan Mathieu is a self taught composer and performer, working in the field of electroacoustics and abstract digitalia. His sound is largely based on early instruments, environmental sound and obsolete media, which are recorded and transformed by means of experimental microphony, re-editing techniques and software processes involving spectral analysis and convolution; it has been compared to the landscape paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, the
work of Colorfield artists Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly. He currently collaborates with Sylvain Chauveau, Robert Hampson / Main, Taylor Deupree, Caro Mikalef, van Wissem and David Sylvian.
