Andy Guhl
Performance: Andy Guhl

Andy Guhl (b. 1952, Switzerland), is a pioneer sound artist and one of the fathers of European electronic experimental music. Before starting his solo career in 2003 Guhl was a member, with the artist Norbet Möslang, of the legendary duo Voice Crack.

As part of Voice Crack, he has strongly influenced multiple generations of musicians and artists of the international noise movement. In 1983 they began to crack everyday electronic devices, manipulate them and experiment with them in performances, breaking down the traditional barrier between daily items and musical instruments and their acoustic perception. In the 1990s the duo expanded their reach into visual representation of acoustic phenomena with installations, such as the "Sound Shifting" at the Venice Biennial 2001.

He is currently working with his instrument called "expanded cracked everyday electronics": a sound and image generator that works through a sensor that translates light into sound and generates a totally abstract audiovisual show.

Andy Guhl has given numerous concerts, lectures, exhibitions and workshops in many countries, and he is considered to be one of the pioneering artists of the philosophies of Do It Yourself (DIY).
