Swiss sound artist, musician and researcher living in Berlin.
His practice is based on a performative approach to field recording, documents and historical sources, often in collaboration with other disciplines. He critically addresses listening, sound practices, music, technology and environmental voices, examining their relations to power structures and ideologies in various contexts.
Using formats such as installation, live performance, film, publication and radio, his works are presented as speculative spaces for shared experience and reflection, such as the piece “The gramophone Effect” commisioned by documenta14 in Kassel and Athens.
He has toured and exhibited internationally, including Casablanca Art Biennale (2018), documenta14 (2017), Tinguely Museum Basel (2017), Alhamra Art Center Lahore (2017), café Oto London (2017), Kunstraum Bethanien Berlin (2016), Clark House Mumbai (2016), Art Council Karachi (2016), Skulpturenmuseum Marl (2016), FMAC Geneva (2016), MAGA Museum Gallarate (2015), Kunstmuseum Lucerne (2015), Khoj Art Center New Delhi (2015), TUSK Festival Newcastle (2015), Tsonami Festival Valparaiso (2014), Savvy Contemporary Berlin (2014), Friedmann Gallery New York (2014), Marrakech Biennale (2014), LEAP art space Berlin (2013), HeK Basel (2013), Camera Austria Graz (2012), House of World Cultures Berlin (2012), Kontraste Festival Krems (2011), MACBA Barcelona (2010).
