Gabriel Paiuk (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1975) is a composer, sound artist, pianist and researcher concerned with the ways in which we listen.

His work takes the form of sound installations, works for musical instruments and electronic sources, and collaborations with other disciplines.

He received his bachelor’s degree in Music from the Center for Advanced Studies in Contemporary Music in Buenos Aires (ARG) and his master’s degree in Sonology (with honors) from the Institute of Sonology of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (NL).
