Byron Dean is a sound artist, sound designer and field recordist living and practicing on Kaurna land. Working with sound across the areas of acousmatic composition, performance, moving image, site, radio and installation, his work negotiates and reimagines emplaced listening through field recording.

Interested in the relationship between sounds, environments and temporalities, Byron's compositions often explore transformation, polyphony of perspective and the portrayal and expansion of sonic experience. His work has been presented in events, exhibitions and festivals in Australia, China, Japan, Austria, Scotland, Norway and the Netherlands.
