Stephan Dunkelman (Brussels, Belgium, 1956) acousmatic compositions are intended not only for concerts but for exhibitions (Charlotte Marchal, sculptor; Axel Miret, painter), for dance (Michèle Noiret) and for fashion design (Azniv Afsar). Collaboration with artists working in other fields, especially in the visual arts, has led Stephan Dunkelman to experimentation that has enriched and brought into focus the ‘space’ that music must englobe. It has also allowed him to develop the imaginal qualities of the sonic material he uses in his concert music. Stephan Dunkelman obtained a graduate degree in acousmatic composition (1999) as a student of Annette Vande Gorne at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Mons (Belgium). His music has won honours at a number of international competitions: a jointly awarded Public’s Prize at Métamorphoses 2000; the award (1998) and a special mention (1993) at the Stockholm Electronic Arts Award; an honourable mention at the Prix Ars Electronica (1995); and was a finalist in the Luigi Russolo Competition (1991).
