Andrew Belletty is an Indian-born Australian sound artist and researcher, working with vibrotactile materiality of sound, across visual, performance and media arts. His work creates intimate, tactile listening experiences by redesigning images and sounds of country as flexible experiential forms through both gallery and site-specific installations. The multi-layered, experimental and site responsive works draw from ancient Indian knowledges and practices which connect bodies and heal country, reconfiguring audio-visual technologies to create a decolonised techno space. A founding member of acclaimed Australian band Yothu Yindi, Andrew also works internationally as a cinematic sound designer with hundreds of screen credits to his name. Andrew holds a PhD in Visual Anthropology, Art, Design & Media from the National Institute for Experimental Arts, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
