Gabriel Shalom


Gabriel Shalom is a director, audiovisual artist and composer living and working in Berlin, Germany. His signature work takes the form of rhythmically edited audiovisual compositions (videomusic). Taking inspiration from musique concrète, he explores the hidden musicality of everyday objects, unusual handmade electro-acoustic instruments, and manipulation of traditional instruments. He understands video to be a fundamentally audiovisual medium and strives to create highly synaesthetic works. He has written and spoken extensively on Hypercubism, his theory of aesthetics for object-oriented moving images. He has been commissioned by brands such as MINI, Sony and BMW Italy.

In addition to making audiovisual artworks, he is a director of experimental narratives. His company KS12, founded together with partner Patrizia Kommerell, is a creative studio which produces videos that blur boundaries between documentary and fiction, artwork and essay.

He has been a guest speaker on audiovisual trends in London, Berlin and São Paulo, and since Spring 2009 he is adjunct faculty at the Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule in audiovisual media. He is a contributor to opinion-leading blogs on the future of cinema and augmented reality.
