Pablo Diserens (b. 1994) is a field recordist, acoustic ecologist, composer, filmmaker and visual artist based in Berlin who engages with various topo- and phonographies with a wide range of visual and sonic recording techniques. Blending a rich variety of located sounds with texts, analog photographs and video, Diserens' work brings the bio- and geological features of the explored environments to the foreground. They also compose electroacoustic sound pieces by fusing and altering an array of found sounds, objects and self-made instruments. With a background in film making and sound art, Diserens proposes new narrative structures that weave with and within the mind of the audience, accentuating the power of the imagination and memory, to stimulate a new range of sensory images with the aim of sparking environmental awareness.

Pablo Diserens is also the co-founder/curator of forms of minutiae, a publishing platform that supports a plurality of projects in the field of electroacoustic music, phonography, acoustic ecology and visual art. Since 2015, they also are (as Ōtone) the founder and curator of ygam, a record label for industrial sonic tapestries and peculiar studies of noise to unfold.
