There, where electronica within its own experimental limits sometimes encounters contemporary art, the artist from Berlin, Thomas Köner, chooses to explore the colours of sound rather than its rhythm or melody. His performances and installations (shown at the Louvre, Beaubourg, the Hayward Gallery in London...) are an expression of a very particular form of audiovisual research which has given rise to collaborations with such film directors of happenings as Jürgen Reble and Yann Beauvais (Lightcone). Working under the name of “Porter Ricks” with his partner Andy Mellwig, Thomas Köner is also well-known for his techno productions and remixes of Nine Inch Nails and Claude Debussy.
