Sound artist Marcus Fischer discusses installation and sound composition with a focus on his work in the 2019 Whitney Biennial, followed by an improvised performance using analog and digital processes. Fischer is a musician and interdisciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. His work typically centers around memory, geography and the manipulation of physical audio-recording mediums. He builds soundscapes from field recordings, found objects and chance, along with tape loops and live instrumentation, to create immersive sonic environments. These sounds have found their way into multimedia installations, short films and the award-winning public radio program Radiolab.
