Michael Gary Dean
Singles and EPs
Canadian-born, Lisbon-based Michael Gary Dean is a new media artist who straddles both the avant-garde edges of digital art and the more traditional veins of classical music. Previously operating and releasing under the name Wiklow, Dean’s past output was predominantly electronic. Dean's latest instrumental work is melancholic yet hopeful and filled with raw moments of reflection and contemplation. In his performances, Dean challenges the idea that the performer should be the focal point, often removing the stage entirely in order to place the audience on an equal level with the artist to create a shared experience. Through collaborations with artists of different mediums, often with a strong visual aspect, Dean has performed at festivals and venues across the world, including Sónar, MUTEK and London's Somerset House.
