SIP – SoundLAB Interview

Luc Messinezis AKA Sonologik was born in Athens, Greece in 1977. He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Patras, Greece. Despite his scientific background, he engaged with sound and music by studying classical harmony and composition in parallel with his academic studies. Due to his interest in experimental compositional strategies, he pursued further engagement by investigating sound as a creative medium. After relocating in the UK, Luc achieved an MA in Sound Arts at the University of the Arts, London and has developed several projects researching the means throughout which sound can constitute the base for artistic explorations.
Phonography, concrete/acousmatic/electroacoustic composition, audiovisual works and sound installations are just a few of the ways of experimenting with sound and investigating its potential for artistic expression. With his recent work, Luc aims in discovering ways that sound objects can be used for a composition in space rather than in time, by eliminating the temporal characteristics of the used sonic materials. Thus a new body of structuring material is introduced; the choroechon, and a new compositional strategy; choroechoic composition. Luc’s conceptual interests mainly focus in the way sound and its use in creative practice can trigger feelings, challenge the perception and stimulate the imagination of the audience.
