Cole Peters

Visual/sound artist


Cole Peters is a multidisciplinary artist fascinated by matter, energy, space and time, and the ways in which these elements shape our universe, our environment, and our perception. With a focus on physicality and temporality, his work emerges in compositions that emphasize material properties and processes.

Cole’s work in sound builds on the techniques of musique concrète, field recording, and reductive synthesis. His recordings examine texture, pressure, place and time as subjects unto themselves and as scaffolds in an evolving thematic framework drawing on the natural sciences and sensory experience.

His work in the visual arts, encompassing photography, paint, mixed media and video, has explored themes of formalism, information paucity, geography and entropy, both as extensions of his work in sound and as independent works.

He is currently based in Canada.
