Budhaditya Chattopadhyay

Budhaditya Chattopadhyay is an Indian-born artist, researcher, writer and theorist. Chattopadhyay’s work questions the materiality, site-specificity and objecthood of sound, and addresses aspects of contingency, contemplation, mindfulness and transcendence inherent in listening. His artistic practice intends to shift the emphasis from 'object' to ‘situation' and from ‘immersion’ to ‘discourse’ in the realm of sound. Chattopadhyay has received numerous fellowships, residencies and international awards, and his works have been widely exhibited, performed and presented. Chattopadhyay graduated from Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI) - the national film school of India, specialising in sound, completed a Master of Arts degree in New Media at Aarhus University, Denmark, and received a PhD in Sound Studies involving artistic research at Leiden University, The Netherlands. http://budhaditya.org/
