Peter Strickmann is an artist who performs, installs and manipulates sounding activity in public, domestic and institutional environments. He works with improvising musical groups, exhibits in a variety of contexts and generally observes the behaviour of sound and the habits of listening in diverse routine-settings. He uses homebuilt or found and converted sound-tools to play his musics which often meet with the open or recorded field and which have been published very rarely so far.
