       Ō

Pablo Diserens is an artist, field recordist, composer, filmmaker and photographer based in Berlin (Germany) who engages with various topo- and phonographies with a wide range of visual and sonic recording techniques. Their work brings the bio- and geological features of the explored environments to the foreground by blending a rich variety of located sounds with texts, analog photographs and video within site-specific gestures, installations, live performances, exhibitions and releases. Diserens composes sonic environments and electroacoustic sound pieces by fusing and altering an array of field recordings, found objects and self-made instruments. These play with the listeners’ acoustic memory to create new sonic combinations and associations until new landscapes emerge. Through their various practices embedded in sonic ecology and acousmatic forms, Diserens draws attention to fragile biomes, unheard or unseen minutiae and the [political] act of listening with the aim of sparking ecological 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.

Member of CENSE (Central European Network for Sonic Ecologies) since 2021.
