Studied art at the ESAD of Orléans (DNSEP Master II). Then, he been a member of the Sound Art Research Group at the ENSA Bourges. Quentin Aurat work in a very transdisciplinary field, at the crossroads of several forms of expressions : videos, sound installations, graphic design, music and performances.
The Quentin Aurat’s works often operates a relationship context of generation of perceptible or imperceptible phenomenons with technological and human devices, sometime leaded by a paradoxical report the ones to the others. The particular poetry which gets free of it is often due to the encounter of archaism and sophistication in the same piece. This work expresses a need to study situations where mysterious relations happens between human factor and inerts things. He tends to implicitly emphasize the existence of the human being as techno-organic artifacts of his own civilization, not by limiting himself to a practice in particular, or just by combining heterogeneous forms, but rather in a long time hybrid process. The strangeness of forms created, and the sometimes the hostile tension which results from them, is an important characteristic of this process.
Also, the artist is a self-taught musician with a practice focused on improvisation and sound performance in the field of experimental music, noise, electroacoustics, as well as in musical genres derived from post-rock and jazz. Since 2004, he made several sound pieces for theater and danse shows, and he integrated several musical ensembles (musical works are coming soon on the site).
finally, Quentin Aurat design electronic circuits, digital and mechanical devices. With a solid technical culture applied to the artistic field, he intervenes punctually with other visual artists, musicians and students. Finally, the artist runs workshops and meetings around interactivity, Human-machine relations, image-sound relations and hacking.
