Doug Van Nort's work explores deep listening, the noise of the world, viscerally immersive experiences and the radical sculpting of sonic materials in dialogue with his acoustic environment. These explorations manifest as composition, installation, workshops, happenings and as improvised electroacoustic performances, in recent years at venues and festivals across North America and Europe such as the Stone, Experimental Intermedia, Casa da Musica, the New Museum, Issue Project Room, Xfest, the Guelph Jazz Festival, the Miller Theatre, the Red Room and Eyebeam among various others; he often performs solo as well as with a wide array of artists spanning musical styles and artistic media. Regular collaborators include Pauline Oliveros, If, Bwana and the Composers Inside Electronics. His music appears on several labels (such as Pogus, Deep Listening, Zeromoon, Attenuation Circuit, Striking Mechanism) and his writings on sound/performance/electroacoustics have been published by a number of outlets (such as MIT and Cambridge U. Press).
