Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard is turning sound inside out.
By multiplying instruments again and again he makes the sound transcend itself and become a pure new sound.

His interest in multiplying sound, has lead to the SOUND X SOUND series, which is a series of works where each piece is an exploration of one single instrument that is multiplied.

Løkkegaards early work is influenced by the language of jazz and improvisation. Throughout his later production he moves towards an expression between classical music and improvised music. His latest work is transcending the borders of genre and form, and through a series of experiments and installations he explores the overlap between sounds, science and music. How sounds have the capability to affect the human body-and how the human body is to be heard in sounds are the main focus of his work.

Løkkegaards work has lead him into different collaborations a.o. with MoMA & Hello Monday as he composed the sounds for their recent René Magritte exhibition and he has received several awards for his work, among others a 1. prize from The Danish Arts Council.
