Andreas Kahre is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, writer, and musician, whose work involves images, sound and text in many different configurations. He has been involved in the creation of more than a hundred interdisciplinary projects with theatre, dance and music ensembles across Canada, and specializes in sited interdisciplinary performance. His collaborative project with Darren Copeland explore the aural, historical and lyrical dimension of the underwater domain by combining hydrophone recording, text, and sound processing to create interactive performance installations using holosonic speaker systems — tightly focused beams of sound that work like audio spotlights. Recent examples include a shortlisted proposal for Toronto’s Harbourfront festival and a commission for Deutschlandradio Kultur in Berlin scheduled for 2008.
