Jacob Kirlkegaard is an artist and composer who works in carefully selected environments to generate recordings that are used in compositions, or combined with video imagery in visual, spatial installations. His works reveal unheard sonic phenomena and present listening as a means of experiencing the world. Kirkegaard has recorded sonic environments as different as subterranean geyser vibrations, empty rooms in Chernobyl, Arctic calving glaciers and tones generated by the human inner ear itself.
Based in Copenhagen Kirkegaard has presented his works at galleries, museums and concert spaces throughout the world, including MoMA in New York, LOUISIANA in Denmark, KW in Berlin, The Menil Collection & at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Aichi Triennale in Nagoya, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan - and most recently with a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denmark. Jacob Kirkegaard has gallery representation in Scandinavia and Europe by the Danish Galleri Tom Christoffersen and in USA and Asia by New York based Opalnest. His sound works are released on the TOUCH, Important Records, VON Archives & Posh Isolation labels. His work is represented in the permanent collection of LOUISIANA - Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
In 2016 Jacob Kirkegaard is the sound-artist-in-residency at Oxford University, U.K.
