as an artist, hans w. koch likes working with things in plain view, but not obvious.
he considers art sculpting thoughts in different materials and personally favours conceptual approaches: more thought, less material.
the result can be scores, performances, installations or anything else, including daydreaming and no result at all.
in 2008 his piece "the benchmark consort" won an award of distinction at the ars electronica festival in linz/austria.
since 2016 he also works as professor of sound at the academy for media arts in cologne.
