About the author (2004)

Brandon LaBelle is a sound artist and writer from Los Angeles. Working in the fields of sound, performance, and installation art since 1992, LaBelle aims to draw attention to the dynamics of sound as it is found within spaces and objects, public events and interactions, language and the body. Through a performative interaction with objects, found sound, and minimal electronics, the work draws attention to the quality and nature of what is already there through an emphasis on and displacement of listening and interaction, as a technological and architectural glitch. LaBelle's interest in site-specificity reflects a desire to consider the relationships and tensions between art and a broader social environment. His work has been featured in "Bitstreams" at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in Amplitude of Chance at Kawasaki City Museum Japan, at the 9th International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Liverpool and Manchester, Sampling Rage Festival in Berlin, the ICA London, Experimental Intermedia in New York, the Arizona State University Museum, and as part of Sound as Media at ICC in Tokyo. His work has been released on the SELEKTION , Fringes Recordings , Ground Fault , and La Bruit Secret labels.
