Ephraim Wegner

Ephraim Wegner started his career as a DJ of electronic music and began composing and developing digital and electronic music control systems in the nineties. His main focus is currently on controlling the electronics directly, by visitors of interactive installations or by working together with other musicians. Another important focus is the quality of the sound itself, from which oscillations result different sound characteristics. Already existing, recorded noises and sound processes play a decisive role, for deconstruction as well as for simulation.

He operates mainly in the area of musique concrète, electroacoustics and new music. Up to now there were numerous cooperations with other musicians and ensembles (among others @c, Alexander Grebtschenko, Cem Güney, ensemble chronophonie, Ensemble Alarm, Gilles Aubry and Skug). He created musical performances or installations e.g. at the ZKM, Art's Birthday – an event of the SWR – or during the Baden-Württemberg theatre days. Furthermore he composes music for documentaries, art films and short movies as well as for theatre plays. He is a postgraduate Studend at KHM / Academy of Media Arts Cologne and organizes an established series of events for experimental music in Freiburg.
