Jesse Gilbert is an interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of visual art, sound and software design, creating flexible frameworks that are activated in live performance, via network interaction, or in installation settings. Since 2010 he has primarily developed and performed with his software SpectralGL, an interactive listening instrument that generates real-time visual landscapes in response to sound. Building on his work as a composer, sound designer and lifelong technologist, Gilbert’s creative output probes the phenomenological nature of listening itself through a practice centering on improvisation and collaborative dialogue. Gilbert co-founded Dark Matter Media, LLC in 2007, through which he consults on a variety of projects in the art and entertainment industries. From 2011-2017 he was the founding chair of the Media Technology department at Woodbury University, and has taught interactive software design at both CalArts and UC San Diego. Gilbert’s collaborative and solo work has been shown widely in the US and abroad at venues including Ars Electronica (Austria), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Färgfabriken (Stockholm), Operadagen Festival (Rotterdam), Millenium Park (Chicago), Mostra SESC de Artes (São Paulo), Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall (Istanbul), Festival International de Musique Actuelle (Quebec), Molde Jazz Festival (Norway), Sons d’Hiver (Paris), Suoni per il Popolo Festival (Montreal), Café OTO (London), Voll-Damm Festival Internacional de Jazz (Barcelona), Whitney Museum (New York), and PORT (MIT, Boston), among many others.
