Kristen Roos
Kristen Roos is an artist based in Vancouver, unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. His practice includes site-specific installations, sound design for dance, and performance. His work explores a fascination with the outside – what lies beyond standard perception, cognition and experience. This fascination has led him to create work with transmission, audible and inaudible frequencies, electromagnetism and tactile vibration. A prominent feature of this work is the exploration of infrasound and electromagnetic radiation through material processes that sonify inaudible events. His work has been shown across Canada, the United States, the UK and Europe. Kristen holds a BFA from Concordia University and an MFA from the University of Victoria, which focused on a series of site-specific micro radio broadcasts (published in Islands of Resistance).  He has received funding for numerous projects through the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council, and a People’s choice award for his Ghost Station installation at Nuit Blanche Toronto in 2007. He has designed and composed sound for several choreographers whose work has toured internationally, including Company 605 and Justine Chambers. His writing on sound and radio art appears in the Radius GRIDS booklet published by  Half Letter Press (Chicago 2015), the Errant Bodies publication Radio Territories (Berlin, 2007) and the New Star Books publication Islands of Resistance: Pirate Radio in Canada (Vancouver, 2010).
