Luis Sanz is a multidisciplinary artist working with synthetic sounds, computer graphics and physical audiovisual experiences. As an artist, Sanz develops installations that focus on the relationships between bodies and spaces, creating acoustic-imaginary dimensions that combine video, spatial sound, light and field recordings. As a musician, Sanz uses programming languages to develop rhythmic techniques and algorithmic processes of modulation and pattern generation in digital and analogue devices. His sonic works integrate noise, rhythms, processed field recordings and extreme computer music. Sanz has co-founded Fakedac~, an algorithmic art platform based in London, and Amarus, an experimental music network based in Bern. He has performed in Southeast Asia, Europe and parts of Latin America with the electroacoustic noise duo Noijzu and as a solo artist. Sanz holds a BA in Art and an MA in Contemporary Art Practice from the Hochschule der Künste in Bern, Switzerland.
In recent years, his works are shown across the world at international festivals and venues including Ruang Gulma (Yogyakarta ID) / IKLECTIK (London UK) / Myanmart Gallery (Yangon, MM) / Sonorities (Belfast GB-NIR) / The Wire 40 X ESS (Chicago US) / Solo Harsh (Central Java ID) / Live Cinema (Rome IT) / Borderline (Dolnośląskie PL) / Spectres (Zürich CH) / The Institute (Zürich CH) / DOM (Łódź PL) / Cabaret Voltaire (Zürich CH) / CASo (Buenos Aires AR) / Frestas (Río de Janeiro BR) / Porta (São Paulo BR) / Klang Moor Schopfe, Biennale für Audiovisuelle Kunst (Hochmoor Gais CH) / STUENZI, Gamut (Zürich CH) / Hors Normes (Le Pont CH) / Volumens (Valencia ES) / Fantoche (Baden CH) / Berlin Atonal (Berlin DE) / CTM (Berlin DE) / Espacio Espositivo (Madrid ES) / Node (Lausanne CH) / International Film Festival (Rotterdam NL) / Buh Records (Lima PE) / M4Music (Zürich CH) / Circles of Light (Moscow RU) / Ludicious (Zürich CH) / Mapping (Geneva CH) / Mira (Barcelona ES) / Proyecto AMIL (Lima PE) / Fakedac~ (London UK) / Centras (Kaunas LT) / Botanical Garden (Bern CH) / Centre for Narrative Practice (Pristina XK) / Museum of Broken Relationships (Zagreb HR) / OKC Abrašević (Mostar BA).
