Daisuke Ishida (1980, Tokyo) is an artist, based in Berlin since 2004, 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/their understanding, position and relation to their physical and conceptual environment.
Since 2020, he is a professor of Sound Art / Klangkunst at the master’s program Sound Studies and Sonic Arts in the Berlin University of the 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, Stiftung Niedersachsen work stipends 2009 at Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst and Grant from the Saxon State Minister for Higher Education, Research and the Arts at Cynetart Awards 2018.
