Andrius Arutiunian is an Armenian-Lithuanian composer and sound artist. His music explores the socio-cultural aspects of specific histories through their sonic artefacts, often dealing with ideas of identity, sonic appropriation and thresholds of noise and sound. His works comprise of electroacoustic pieces for chamber ensembles, sound installations and multimedia pieces, such as his recent performance 600 Notesat documenta 14, multimedia piece on the decommissioned Visaginas nuclear facility in Lithuania or a recomposition based on the NASA’s 1977 Voyager Golden Record. Arutiunian’s Armenian-Lithuanian background is also a strong influence on his work, compelling him to look into the layers of personal and shared histories through his music.

Based in The Hague, Arutiunian works, performs, and teaches within both contemporary music and contemporary art contexts. He obtained his BA and MA degrees at the Royal Conservatory The Hague under Yannis Kyriakides and Peter Adriaansz. He is a researcher and lecturer (Master Artistic Research department (KABK), Sedje Hémon Stichting). His work has been recently shown or played at documenta 14 Parliament of Bodies (DE), Contemporary Art Centre (LT), Melos-Ethos (SL), deSingel (BE) and MAZE festival (NL), and he often collaborates with various international ensembles (MAZE, Modelo62, Ensemble Klang, Nadar, Slagwerk Den Haag, Synaesthesis and others). Andrius Arutiunian’s works are published by Donemus (NL).
