Marc Sauter is a german composer and sound artist. He founded the duo Seltsam & Strahler and released his first ambient electronic album on source records (2005). Together with Susann Hempel interpretations for electronic and piano to poems of Else Lasker Schüler followed. His work is presented in exhibitions and audiovisual performances.
Marc studied philosophy and ethnology in Heidelberg first but fell in love with the arts at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, where the vibrant mixture of architecture, design, art and philosophy led to multidisciplinary collaborations with visual artists to international exhibitions and performances. His work reflects the attention-feedback of human perception and how it multiplies to thought, imagination and emotion.
His compositions maintain a contrast between static, architectural sound settings and a considerable amount of movement and structured activity from where carefully placed fragile beauty emerges.
