Michael Trommer is a Toronto based producer and sound artist; his experimental work has been focused primarily on psychogeographical explorations via the use of field recordings.

He has released material on an unusually diverse roster of labels, both under his own name as well as 'sans soleil'. These include Transmat, Wave, Ultra-red, and/OAR, Audiobulb, Audio Gourmet, Gruenrekorder, Impulsive Habitat, Stasisfield, Serein, Flaming Pines, 3leaves and con-v.

Michael also creates gallery-based audio installation work; He has exhibited work at Australia’s ‘Liquid Architecture’, 'from 0 to 1 and back again' at Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt, Cordoba, Spain's art:tech and soundLAB in Köln. His music has also been included in Dodi Nash’s ‘Listening Shell’ installation, on permanent exhibit at London’s Victoria and Albert museum.

He has performed extensively in North America, Europe and Asia, including events with members of Berlin's raster-noton collective, as well as the 2008 and 2013 editions of Mutek's acclaimed a/visions series. He also regularly improvises with Toronto-based AI collective 'i/o media'.

In 2011, Michael's 'ghostwood' project was awarded a major audio arts grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
