Tristan Louth-Robins is an artist working principally in the medium of sound art, composition and acoustic ecology. Ideas of sound and its signification are key elements in Louth-Robins’ practice, traversing the spaces between the visual and aural his work is realised through recordings, installation, visual art and performance. He is interested in sound and its associative implications - including its relationship to the surrounding environment, objects, technology and urban spaces.
Since 2011, he has facilitated an ongoing acoustic ecology project, the Fleurieu & Kangaroo Island Sound Map (FKISM.) Originally encompassing only the Fleurieu, in January 2020 the sound map was expanded to accomodate Kangaroo Island.
Recently, he has begun to employ data science tools for acoustic ecology projects and is exploring the possibilities remote sensing technologies to facilitate his research in this area.
He is a current board member of the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology and the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (Treasurer.)
