Born in 1985, Vincent Giles is a sound artist and composer who creates works for concert halls, galleries, theatre, the outdoors, lounge rooms, etc. paying keen attention to space and site, and his works have been presented all around the world. His work has been described as “… flourishing and melding in an unsettled but vibrant electroacoustic language” and painting “an amazing landscape”.
Vincent has a keen interest in physics and evolutionary biology, which is a major driving force in his creative work and has lead to doctoral research at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, examining the link between memetics and microsound in sound art. Asides sound, Vincent enjoys spicy food, craft beer, real ale, gardening, coffee, reading and being a recluse.
