VOOV®systems : luxury noise | audio releases | events

The name VOOV stands for Violation Of OrdinaryValues. Christian Graupner runs the media & revent production with numberous collaborators. ... the Berlin-based artist uses his latest work to explore the practices and myths around pop and experimental music and combines multi- channel videos & sound with partly machine- partly user-controlled 'humatic' interfaces and mechanisms. His recent sculptural / media work includes gambling machines and asian mojo figures, feedback guitars and beatbox-like vocal- & dance performances. In processing visual and audio material, he not only uses and adapts available computer programs but also uses the developments coded by his project collaborators.

VOOV refers to a grounded state of mind and disassociates himself from all hippie-esque and esoteric activities that are mistakenly associated with the artist name.
