Gilles Aubry is a Swiss sound artist, musician and researcher. 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, performance, film, publication and radio, he creates works that playfully reconfigure materials and discourses into speculative spaces for shared experience and reflection. He has taken part in numerous festivals, exhibitions and biennales worldwide, including Documenta14 in 2017. Aubry's current PhD research focuses on listening practices and sonic materiality in Morocco, as part of which his recent movie "Salam Godzilla" (2019) was produced and premiered at the International Film Festival "Visions du Réel" in Nyon.
