Daisuke Ishida (1980, Tokyo) is a Berlin based artist, working with sound and contemporary media, studied Political Science and Economics and Sound Studies in Japan and Germany respectively. He is interested in the consequence of artistic praxis and theory in sound, space and perception. His works explore the boundaries of ephemeral and time based media to open up new perspectives on spatialities, while his understanding of space extends from the physical, to the social and political realm. He strives to induce a multitude of complex individual experiences of space, that cause the spectator to reassess his/her understanding, position and relation to their physical and conceptual environment.

Since 2012, he has been teaching at The Berlin University of the Arts, UNI.K Studio für Klangkunst und Klangforschung (Studio for Sound Art and Sound Research) and the master’s program Sound Studies and Sonic Arts. He was a recipient of the Work stipends New Music and Sound Art by the Berlin Senate in 2017. In 2002 he co-founded The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA which has received Honorary Mention of the Prix Ars Electronica 2004 and 2019, the Stiftung Niedersachsen work stipends 2009 at Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst, and a Grant from the Saxon State Minister for Higher Education, Research and the Arts at Cynetart Awards 2018.
