Christina Kubisch (b. 1948 Bremen, Germany) is among the world’s leading sound artists. Inspired by the work of John Cage, Phill Niblock, Pauline Oliveros and other composers that connected conceptual art and avant garde music, she has since the 1970s created sound installations that displace the hearing range of the average human.

Kubisch has studied both electronics and composing and has a long history of working with sound outside the confines of the static presentation allowed by the concert stage. She was one of the first to use the term «soundscape» to describe a listening experience were the listener is contained «inside» a shifting field of sound. In Kubisch’s installations visitors’ movements and sounds captured by electronics often add an element of chance to the experience.
