Pablo Diserens (they/she ~ b.1994) is a field recordist, musician and artist devoted to non-human realities, attentive listening, and possible forms of interspecies coexistence. Through an ecologically engaged multidisciplinary creative practice, they investigate diverse biomes and acoustic occurrences with sonic and visual recording techniques. Their work blends sound, music, images, and text to emphasize deep listening gestures and interconnectedness. Here, sonic ecology, photographic, and electroacoustic forms bring the bio- and geological features of the explored environments to the foreground. By placing listeners into environmental propositions and (sur)realities, publications, live performances, and installations bear the potential to inspire individuals to shift their perspective and sense of scale while experiencing otherness and alternative forms of being, ultimately making listening a political act. In solidarity with a wounded planet, Diserens’ practice invites people to attune to the present moment in an attempt at rethinking caring strategies and our relationship with the world and its biotic communities.

Based in Berlin (Germany), Pablo Diserens is also the co-founder/curator of forms of minutiae, a publishing platform for attuning listenings, electroacoustic music, sonic ecology and visual art.

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