SONIC RESEARCH by Chris Obrist is an open knowledge platform that collects, describes and shares his discoveries and works. As teacher and artist in the field of sound design and aesthetic research he primarily understand sound as material for shaping space and time. He explores oscillations, resonances, feedback and noise between sound art and electronic music.
Rooted in the local DIY-Maker scene, Chris Obrist is concerned with social topics such as open source, repairing, sharing economy, do-it-yourself, which he also addresses in his artistic work. Most of his instruments and sound installations are Handmade Electronics i.e. self-made, soldered and tinkered. In the interplay between sound, environment and nature, he searches for answers to social challenges and changes.
