Christopher Dahm lives and works in Mainz, Germany. After performing as a Techno DJ for many years, he studied Sound & Music Design in Darmstadt (with Dr. Barbara Lüneburg, Moritz Bergfeld and Carsten Kümmel), as well as Sound Art-Composition at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (with Anke Eckardt, Peter Kiefer and Stefan Fricke). Christopher Dahm’s installations and sculptures focus on the transformation of architecture and physical phenomena into the medium sound. In the process, space itself becomes a decisive component of the mostly site-specific works. A further focus of his work is artistic research on digital, multi-channel soundscapes, which are used in the field of Expanded Realities or in Multimedia Installations. In the School of Design at Mainz University of Applied Sciences, he passed on his knowledge to the students as manager of the media laboratories. Since 2022 Christopher Dahm is tenured Professor for digital technologies video/sound at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences.
