Gascia Ouzounian


Dr Gascia Ouzounian is Senior Lecturer in Music at Queen’s University Belfast. As a musicologist and artist her work is positioned in relation to experimental traditions of the last century. Her writing examines the topic of sound and space in a number of contexts: sound installation art, site-specific sound, the history of spatial audio, acoustic mapping, and sound art in urban and public space. As a violinist and artist she has performed and presented her work internationally, at venues including Carnegie Hall, STEIM, Modern Art Oxford, Diapason Gallery, Issue Project Room and others.

In 2013 Ouzounian founded Optophono, a label that publishes interactive works of music and sound art. Along with the architect Sarah Lappin she co-directs the interdisciplinary research group Recomposing the City. From 2015 to 2018 Ouzounian and Lappin will lead the project "Hearing Trouble: Sound Art in Post-Conflict Cities", generously funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council of the UK.
