Kristen Roos is a Vancouver-based artist whose practice includes site-specific installations, sound design for dance, and performance. His exploration of underground, low frequency, and electromechanical sounds is a prominent feature of his work. The muted sounds and tactile vibrations implicitly suggest a primal association, mingling with the deep droning noises of modernization and labor, the spectral, resonant shimmer of the past, present, and future.
He has exhibited in artist-run centers and festivals across Canada, and performed in new music venues in Austria and the Netherlands. His writing on sound and radio art appears in the Errant Bodies publication Radio Territories and the New Star Books publication Islands of Resistance: Pirate Radio in Canada.
