Jeph Vanger (b.1989 in Athens) is a sound artist and composer working between Athens and London. The interaction between sound, space, and the body is an important part of his artistic practice. He has worked in the fields of dance, theatre, and art installation and has received the Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) Digital Music and Sound Arts Breakthrough Award during his studies at the University of Brighton in 2017. He is also one of the Composers-in-Residence for 2021-22 at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) in Stockholm, Sweden, supported by HelpMusiciansUK. His personal projects and collaborations have been exhibited and performed in institutions, theatres and organisations in China, the UK, France and Greece, including: Today Art Museum in Beijing, Sadler’s Wells, Fort Process festival (UK), Onassis Cultural Centre, Megaron – The Athens Concert Hall, and ICI – centre chorégraphique national de Montpellier (France). His works often combine multi-channel sound systems, modular synthesizers and handmade sound sculptures, focusing on the physicality of sound in space as a moving and raw entity. He has collaborated with several choreographers and artists from Athens and abroad, including: Anna Herrmann, Tribe//, Coda Dance, GesamtAtelier, George Poulios, Anastasia Valsamaki, Euripides Laskaridis, Chara Kotsali, Candy Karra, Michalis Theofanous, Georgia Tegou, Paul Blackman, and Christina Gouzeli, amongst others. He has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
