Michael Schumacher is a composer, performer and installation artist based in New York City.
He works predominantly with electronic and digital media, making computer generated sound environments that evolve continuously for long time periods. In their realization, Schumacher uses multiple speaker configurations that relate the sounds of the installation to the architecture of the exhibition space. Architectural and acoustical considerations thereby become basic structural elements.
His sound installations have been heard at festivals and venues in North America, Europe and Asia. Schumacher's most recent project is the pop/rock band, ELSE.
Schumacher is founder and director of Diapason, a gallery devoted to sound art located in Brooklyn, NY. Since 2001, Diapason has presented the work of over 300 sound and media artists, including premiers by David Behrman, Jacob Kirkegaard, Stephen Vitiello, Leif Inge, and others.
