Gerome Gadient

Gerome Gadient (*1996 in Basel) is an artist, composer and dj based in Basel. In installations, compositions and sculptures he engages with sampled and recorded material from digital and (non-)human surroundings to form surreal stories. The expansiveness of ambient is a recurring element and navigating tool inside his practice. With an emphasis on vocal recordings such as spoken text and singing, he works out techniques to transform and de-construct his sonic palette into vital organic compositions.
With a non-hirachical, non-judgemental approach to sound design, synthesis and sampling he aims to create topologies that sound unreal, yet incredibly familiar or vice-versa. Most of his works are shown as part of sublte scenographies that orchestrate his works, equipment and minimal spatial elements into one cosmos. He has released physical and digital matter containing field recordings and musical compositions on tape and CD and composes for film and performances. His first extended-play will soon be self-released on vinyl.

Gerome Gadient holds a Master as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute HGK FHNW in Basel, where he currently works as a technical assistant. Since 2018, he has been involved in various self-initiated and self-organized curatorial projects and collaborations. He has been in the board of the exhibition space Ausstellungsraum Klingental in Basel since 2019, he is co-founder and co-curator of the 2021 launched online plattform and runs the recently started independent host and label-project periphery serpentine.
