Erik M (ErikM) is a French musician, composer, and visual artist. He explores a wide spectrum of electroacoustic sound production, media art, and performance in his work.
From a young age, in 1987, he immersed himself in various rock-noise or industrial rock bands, while also dedicating himself to fanzines, street art, and creating his first installations.
In the 1990s, he emerged as one of the leading artists in the field of sound art and concrete music. He is undoubtedly one of the pioneers of glitch music and imagery.
Alongside repurposing objects from media and the music industry, ErikM continuously questions sound derived from the living, the invisible, and the unheard through his intense practice of field recording.
ErikM is one of the most influential turntablists of his generation, gracefully manipulating a variety of electronic devices. He crafts sparkling and captivating soundscapes, sometimes referencing electronic dance music.
He collaborates with improvising musicians, collectives, conceptual artists, and contemporary music ensembles.
He designs acousmatic or radiophonic works and composes mixed music for instrumental ensembles such as Ensemble Intercontemporain, Laborintus, Phoenix Basel, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, Dedalus, among others.
He has collaborated with Luc Ferrari, Jean-Luc Nancy, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, Bernard Stiegler, Mathilde Monnier, FM Einheit, Voice Crack, creating interdisciplinary works that offer a unique kaleidoscopic vision, juxtaposing the intimate with the political, the popular with the scholarly.
Beyond his performance and composition activities, extensively documented in various audio formats, he has exhibited drawings, photographs, sculptures, and sound installations in numerous galleries and museums.
His work undoubtedly reflects his explorations at the margins of science (phonography, electronic lutherie, etc.) and his curious poetic worldview.

ErikM is managed by Alters Egos production
