Esther Venrooy

Professor of contemporary music, sound art and performing arts at the Belgium’s Ghent School of Fine Arts, Esther Venrooy has a sharp focus both in her studies and creative impulses on audio topography.

The Dutch artist explores the way sound inhabits space and lets temporal structures impose on the shape and form of her work. Having collaborated live and in the studio with a variety of visual, sound and dance artists, Venrooy’s biography reads like a mixed media map of projects from architecture to dance. Venrooy uses a combination of electronic and traditional instruments favouring the piano, guqin, pipa and satsuma-biwa and has performed all over the world.
