Aernoudt Jacobs is a Belgian artist working primarily with the medium of sound. His work is both phenomenological and empirical. It has its origins in acoustic and technological research and investigates how sounds can trigger sonic processes that will affect the observer's scope of perception.
His work focuses on a central question: how can the complexity, richness and stratification of our direct, daily environment be translated into something that can really be experienced. His work has been exhibited widely at Bergen Art Museum (NO), Macba (ES), ISEA (GER), Singuhr Hoergalerie (GER), Netwerk (BE), NIMK (NL), STUK (BE), Vooruit (BE), Kaaitheater (BE), deSingel (BE), Le Bon Acceuil (FR), Lydgalleriet (NO), Tschumi Paviljoen (NL), Palais de Tokyo (FR) and Hermitage (RU)
In addition to his artistic practice Jacobs co-directs with Christoph De Boeck Overtoon, a platform and production facility for sound art based in the centre of Brussels.
