New York-based Venezuelan sound artist and programmer Wolfgang Gil explores the interrelationship of sound, the listener, and the space of listening. Gil’s sounds are temporally discrete, physical events; and yet are linked in layered logics to produce unified, tangible, sonic constructions. He creates sound that goes beyond the speaker; filling, narrowing, dividing, coloring, saturating, and emptying the space of listening.
Gil’s work is experiential. Thus, it is in the listener’s willingness to engage in a personal dialog with the sound and space that the work finds its purpose. In Gil's work, sound becomes the contexts in which the listener is encouraged to contemplate time, space, and the act of listening itself.
