Sonic thinker, composer, sound-artist.
Together with Bruce Odland he founded O+A in 1989.  Their central theme is “hearing perspective”. Their work is known for large scale, public space sound installations which transform city noise into harmony in real-time. 2009 O+A started on the “Sonic Commons” questioning the dominance of the visual culture in our perception of the world.
Beside his artistic work Sam Auinger was a guest professor at the University of the Arts in Berlin, running the department Experimental Sounddesign at  Master’s Program Sound Studies – Acoustic Communication.
He is collaborating with cityplaners and architects, giving lectures and is a frequent participant of international symposiums on the topic of urbanplaning, architecture, media, the senses and sound in specific.
