Mark Pilkington

You can see the portrait of a bearded middle-aged man with long hair. He stands in front of a tree and looks past the camera.

Mark Pilkington is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music. His practice encapsulates sound and image as a means to extend spatial imaginings between real and virtual space. The coupling of images and sound is applied to the composition of acousmatic music, site-specific installation, and screen-based works. Forging the immaterial and creative labor through a network of interwoven and augmented territories, his work increasingly queries the way operations carry great critical and creative potential. His artistic research focuses on the relationship between artistic genres and their respective aesthetic theories with reference to electroacoustic music, audio-visual, sound design, and film.  His audio-visual works have been performed, exhibited and screened at ICMC, ARS Electronica, Synchresis, ZKM | Karlsruhe, MANTIS festival, and the Open Circuit Festival.
