Raviv Ganchrow (*1972) is an artist and sound researcher based in Amsterdam, NL. His work researches the interdependencies between sound, place and listening,
aspects of which are explored through installations, writing, and the development of pressure-forming and vibration-sensing technologies. His installations examine context-dependent sites of contemporary listening relating to environmental infrasound (Long-Wave Synthesis, Dark Ecology, Kirkeness, NO and Sonic Acts, Amsterdam, NL), mineral piezoelectricity (Quartz Attention, Hyperobjects, Ballroom Marfa, Texas, USA), anechoic chambers (Padded Sounds, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, DE) and materiality of radio transmission (Radio Plays Itself, Forecast for Shipping and Knallfunken) in collaboration with ORF Kunstradio, AT, BBC Radio 4, UK, and Deutschlandfunk Kultur, DE, respectively. Recent installations develop in-situ circuits relating to human-mineral binds (Agora Circuit, Tuned City / Onassis Cultural Foundation, Messene, GR) and telluric currents (Westhafen Ground-Electric, Singuhr at ZK/U Berlin, DE). Raviv Ganchrow is currently a faculty member at the Institute of Sonology, University of the Arts, The Hague, NL.
