Virginie Dubois is a sound artist, experimental composer and independant researcher. 

Her work explores the physical and perceptual aspects of sound, as well as the relational forces and dynamics between sound and the listeners. 

Focusing on the relationship between sound and architectural acoustics, Dubois’ work invites us to connect with our environment and to renew our aesthetic and social experience of everyday life. Her artistic production encompasses sound installations, electro-acoustic music, and experimental performances. 

She also leads sound-walks, and guides collective listening experiences as a socio-political practice that enables people to engage consciously with their body, their voice, their environment and, the living. 

Dubois’ current research investigates the power of listening, and the role of sound as a vibrational and relational material for activating of different modes of attention. 

“My role as an artist is to create, and hold spaces where listening becomes a way of activating our connection with the living forces within and around. For that, I create experiences in which I integrate elements of mindfulness, contemplation, storytelling, imagination, and transcendence, in order to arouse, induce and let emerge other modes of attention. And, then invite to lend attention to these modes of attention.”

Virginie Dubois received her first masters degree in Economics from La Sorbonne, Paris (1999), before later completing two further masters degrees in the Arts – Music at the ArtScience Interfaculty in The Hague (2013), followed by Design at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam (2014). 

She is currently an artist-in-residence at Locus Sonus Vitae at ESA-AIX, France.
