Dear all,

I'm booking some selected dates for Janek Schaefer in 2012.
He's available either for performances and/or sound installations.

I will try and combine these dates together.

Please tell me when you could set up something for him.

Please read this biography and also visit:

Sound Artist, Musician & Composer JANEK SCHAEFER was born in England to
Polish and Canadian parents in 1970. While studying architecture at the
Royal College of Art [RCA annual prize], he recorded the fragmented noises
of a sound activated dictaphone travelling overnight through the Post
Office. That work, titled ‘Recorded Delivery’ [1995] was made for the
‘Self Storage’ exhibition [Time Out critics choice] with one time postman
Brian Eno and Artangel. Since then the multiple aspects of sound became
his focus, resulting in many site-specific installations, exhibition &
dance soundtracks, albums and concerts using his self built record players
with manipulated found sound collage. The ‘Tri-phonic Turntable’ [1997] is
listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘World’s Most Versatile
Record Player’. He has performed, lectured and exhibited widely throughout
Europe [Sonar, Tate Modern, ICA], USA/Canada, [The Walker, XI, Mutek,
Princeton], Japan, and Australia [Sydney Opera House]. In 2008 he won the
Paul Hamlyn Award for Composers Prize, and The British Composer of the
Year Award in Sonic Art. The Bluecoat Gallery exhibited a Retrospective of
his 20 year career in 2009.

The context of each idea is central to its development and resolution. His
concerts and installations explore the spatial and architectural aspect
that sound can evoke and the twisting of technology. Hybrid analogue and
digital techniques are used to manipulate field recordings with live
modified vinyl and found sound to create evocative and involving
environments. His CD 'Above Buildings' [2000] was released on Fat Cat to
considerable praise, [The Guardian CD of the week]. He plays in duos with
Philip Jeck (Songs for Europe CD), Robert Hampson  (Comae CD), and Stephan
Mathieu (Hidden Name CD). Janek runs his own label [audiOh!Recordings] and
web site [] as well as releasing work with Asphodel, Sub Rosa,
Hot Air, Sirr, Rhiz, [K-RAA-K]3, Alluvial, DSP, Diskono, BiP_HOp, Cronica,
LINE, ::Room40::, Fat Cat, and Staalplaat. He currently works as a full
time sound artist/sound designer/musician and composer from the audiOh!
Room in Walton-on-Thames.

I hope to hear from you soon.
