Goran Vejvoda

Sound design

Goran Vejvoda was born in London in 1956 to Yugoslav parents. From 1985 he lived in Paris and since 2015 in the USA. Goran Vejvoda has retained an attraction to various artistic fields from his first musical experiences (rock music, contemporary music and classical music at the Belgrade Conservatory). In Belgrade he played oboe, drums, guitar and worked with sound consoles. He is a musician and producer of several bands in former Yugoslavia and France. His desire for diverse experiences led him to create sound illustrations for documentaries, short films and commercials, to design sound productions for exhibitions and fashion shows, to compose music for performances and to perform interdisciplinary performances. His discography now includes more than a dozen albums, including Etats Hautement Reverberes, released in 2015. He also wrote the soundtracks for the films Tykho Moon (1997) and Immortel (2004) by Enki Bilal. He also works as a sound engineer and director. He creates music for performances, especially for Angelin Preljocaj: Roméo et Juliette (1990), Le Parc (1994), La Peau du monde (1992), Paysage apres la bataille (1997) and Casanova (1998). In 2017, together with Florence Müller, he realised the two-part documentary All Sounds Considered, a history of sound art since the post-war period.
