Andrius Arutiunian (b.1991) is an Armenian-Lithuanian artist and composer. He works with hybrid forms of sound, focusing on aural fabrications, speculative and vernacular sonic materials, as well as the politics of listening. He often works through installations, sound objects, and time-based collaborations with musicians and performers.
