Paul Gründorfer

Artistic practice in the scope of conceptual and process art, site specific intervention, sound sculpture and performance. Paul Gründorfer develops process-related systems and explores variable or unstable conditions within the occurrence of sound when exposed to amplification, feedback and plural signal streams. His works focus on processes that evolve in a social space, where sound is considered a found object and event, that directly relates to, influences and reflects the environment. They deal with the instability of systems, questioning the role of control and reaction, and researching mechanisms of hidden signals.

Paul Gründorfer is part of velak (verein für elektroakustische musik – organisation for electroacoustic music), a non-profit organisation based in Vienna, Austria and platform for artists who work in fields of experimental music and sound/art. The members of velak have been organizing concerts since 2004.
