Marco Cher-Gibard

Marco Cher-Gibard (b. Auckland, 1983), is an artist working with sound. His practice often incorporates software design and favours live process, which can be seen in his practice as an improviser and within other performance contexts. He is a diverse and constant collaborator working across a spectrum of projects (performance, installation, composition, improvisation, community and design) who explores the world, context and social relations through the medium of sound.

Marco has performed across Australia and internationally including France, Japan, Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan.   In 2016 Marco’s collaboration with Ben Speth, sister, premiered ‘work’ for the Bendigo International Festival for Exploratory Music.  Other notable collaborations include a duo with Rosalind Hall (modified saxophone), where Marco performs using custom built video sampler.

2016 sound designs included Back to Back Theatre’s Lady Eats Apple as part of the Melbourne Festival 2016 and Shian Law’s Epic Theatre, for Sydney Dance Company.  Other recent achievements include a greenroom award for composition and sound design with David Chisholm for I am a Miracle (Malthouse Theatre), and sound designs for Chunky Move, Ridiculusmus, Zoe Scoglio and Samara Hersch.

Marco has undertaken residencies in central Java, Indonesia, Campbletown Arts Centre (NSW) and Foodcourt Artspace, amongst others. He performed in Tino Seghal’s This is so contemporary at Art Gallery NSW (2014), exhibited in Melbourne Now at the National Gallery of Victoria (2013–14) and screened Blue Light Running (2010) at Art Not Apart festival in Canberra (2014).
