eRikm

Musician and artist eRikm (1971) is an inquisitive experimenter and a distant concrete music heir. So while he plays vinyl records, he also breaks, glues and wears them down. In both music and sculpture, his essential tools are collage and sampling.

Staccato (2003) thus represents a musical composition turned into a sculpture, in which 888 fragments of vinyl records featuring music for string instruments are assembled on a long cable and mounted above a mirror. The installation is a visual transposition of the artist’s musical compositions, characterised by fragmentation and dislocation, and evokes the visual materialisation of music by an oscillograph.
