Gilles Aubry is a Swiss sound artist based in Berlin since 2002. Informed by researches on cultural, material and historical aspects of sound production and reception, his works address the politics of the audible. In his performance Archive sound-check, a sound performance, Gilles uses location recordings, sound archives, music and interviews to create live performances, sound installations, publications and ‘movies without pictures’.
His work Notes via a Soundscape of Bollywood, based on a sonic research about the Mumbai film-industry, was presented as an installation at the House of electronic Arts in Basel in 2013 and premiered as a movie at FID Marseille in 2014. His latest work “and who sees the mystery” documents a research on the return in Morocco of the Paul Bowles Moroccan music collection and was presented at Marrakech Biennale 2014.
