Oscar vanLeest

I am a multidisciplinary artist based in Arnhem, the Netherlands. My practice consists if two parts, both evolving around the wider phenomenon of sound; the first is a sound art practice in which I explore socio-sonic topics, like the spaces in which we experience and make sound, and the many physics, technologies and politics involved in this complex relationship. This commonly crystalizes into performative interventions and (site-specific) sound installations. In the second part, a sound-design and musical practice, I make electronic sounds and music; from ambient and experimental to dance-floor oriented. There I mostly work with code, software and hardware, and occasionally as DJ. As an extension of that, I am also part of the Syntax club-night collective, based in Arnhem.
