German sound creator Frank Schulte has played in various ensembles for improvised and composed sound art. He works with performance artists, dancer, actors and lyricists. He also composes music for scenic plays, experiments with the application of new electronic sound generation techniques, multi -channel sound installations and network performances, creates sounds, tracks and atmospheres for film and television works. In cooperation with video artists he develops and presents conceptual expanded media projects. F.S. combines his sound generating equipment into a musical household of electronic instruments. Out of the European musical tradition, sound installations, music for unknown films and in applications for New Dance Culture or musique concrète he has created noise stories, songlines and dreamscapes in a very specific personal language. He has conceptualised numerous intermedia events, such as SWITCHBOX and electronic lounge, in which his selection of sound arts, ambient music and improvised music, as well as elements from the electronic dance music scene are locked together in dense friction
