Andy Graydon is an artist and filmmaker originally from Maui, Hawai’i. His work is concerned with natural and social ecologies, and with sound and listening as creative practices.Recent projects have focused on island ecologies and the imaginal and narrative forms employed by the natural sciences. His projects frequently engage structures of music such as the ensemble, the score,improvisation and variation, and techniques of the voice. Often ephemeral in nature, Graydon’s work combines minimal physical materials with elements that are absent, fictional, or imaginary.

His work has been presented internationally including shows at the New Museum, New York; Berlinische Galerie, Berlin; the Frye Art Museum, Seattle; MassMoCA; and the Honolulu Biennial. Graydon was a fellow at the Film Study Center, Harvard, and artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony, NKD Norwegian Artists’ Center,and the Center for Computer Music at Brooklyn College. He has collaborated widely as a musician and sound artist, including projects with Jan St Werner, Jennifer Walshe, Michael Pisaro, Stephen Vitiello, France Jobin, Delia Gonzalez, Zimoun, sawako, Amnon Wolman, John Hudak, Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder.
