ROBERT CURGENVEN 3 Titles
"Curgenven makes the point that sounds are fundamental to our perception of the world... hearing the complexities of a place and time is intersected by memories of the familiar which are in turn displaced and transformed." --Realtime Magazine (AUS)

Robert Curgenven (1974) is a composer/sound artist drawing on the physicality of sound -- not just the physical impact on the body but the way in which the auditory can shape our perception of space and the flow of time, from architectural to open space. His works span pipe organ through to feedback, immersive resonances via turntables and custom-made vinyl, as well as carefully detailed field recordings from remote areas in Australia where he lived for many years. The Wire surmises that "behind the music -- to these ears at any rate -- lurk such [disparate] presences as Alvin Lucier, King Tubby, Murray Schafer and Eliane Radigue."

From beginnings over 30 years ago as a classically-trained organist, the past 10 years have seen him release work on labels such as LINE, The Tapeworm, Winds Measure and his own Recorded Fields Editions. Curgenven has performed extensively across Australia and Europe, including TodaysArt festival (Den Haag/NL), Ultrahang Festival (Budapest), Club Transmediale (Berlin), Cave12 (Geneva), STEIM (Amsterdam), Audiograft Festival (Oxford/UK), Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art (Gdansk), Alice Springs Desert Festival as well as residencies in Milan (O?), Venice (C32/Forte Marghera), Rotterdam (Worm), Berlin (Transit Lounge) and Alice Springs (Art/Land/Culture). He has presented sound, audiovisual and sculptural work in group exhibitions for Transmediale (Berlin), National Film & Sound Archive (Australia), 10 Years of Microsound (Diapason Gallery, New York) as well as galleries throughout Australia, Italy, France, UK, Germany and a solo exhibition at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Torun (Poland).
