Contemporary Sound understands sound as a portrayal of the action that created it. A collection of ciphers moving as waves through the air, which attest to a one-time configuration of forces.

The sequence, structure and form of sound are used by Contemporary Sound to create possibilities for expressing the active, performative quality of contemporary art.


Contemporary Sound's expertise lies in working with artists to develop precisely the right music, sound or noise for their projects, whether video, film, performance, video-sculpture, sound installation, radio drama or recording for vinyl and digital release.


Contemporary Sound has created sound for and with artists exhibiting or performing at the Tate Modern London, M HKA Antwerp, Biennale de Lyon, Schaustelle der Pinakothek der Moderne Munich, GAK Bremen and Mousonturm Frankfurt am Main.


The founder of Contemporary Sound is the producer and composer Filip Caranica, who was classically trained at the Academy of Music in Berlin (HfM) and the Conservatoire de Paris (CNSMDP).
