Dan Gibson is an English musician and sound artist. In 2011 he completed a Ba (Hons) Degree in Creative Music Technology at the University Centre Doncaster and he is currently in the middle of a MA in Instruments and Interfaces at Sonology and STEIM in the Netherlands. Gibson’s work incorporates experimentation and improvisation and aims to explore the sonic subtlety, textural nuance and dynamic intensity found in the natural soundscape through the embodied practise of playing and building
investigative hardware and software instruments.
Gibson’s current work at STEIM focusses on combine voltage control patching interfaces with DSP software in order to provide intuitive and tangible interfaces for real-time exploration, manipulation and organisation of sound. The aim is to provide the spontaneous and expressive control required in
improvisational contexts through the use of gestural interfaces and dynamic mapping techniques.
He also plays and records under the pseudonym noisesinthenight, the name chosen to evoke the acousmatic qualities of listening at night in which the sound sources are unknown and a sense of quietude exposes previously unheard sonic activity. The music works through electronic decoupling of
sound from its source, manipulating the associative qualities of sound and intertwining traces of disparate
