Gabriel Paiuk (*1975) is a composer and sound artist whose work deals with the way our listening is informed by material conditions, protocols and notions of media.

His work takes the form of sound installations and compositions for traditional instruments and particular loudspeaker setups, and has been performed internationally by ASKO ensemble, Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, Slagwerk Den Haag, Francesco Dillon, Ekkehard Windrich, Modelo62, NeoQuartet, Rank Ensemble, Ensemble 306, Kwartludium Ensemble, Quinteto Sonorama and Alexander Bruck. His electronic work/sound installation Res Extensa was awarded the Gaudeamus composition prize in 2006.

He is a member of the faculty staff at the Institute of Sonology (The Hague, NL) and a PhD candidate in Leiden University. He was director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Contemporary Music in Buenos Aires (2009) and taught sound design at the Center for Cinematographic Investigations in Buenos Aires (2004–2009). In recent years he has articulated his compositional practice with theoretical research, leading to talks and workshops in contexts such as the Master Artistic Research at KABK (co-led with Raviv Ganchrow), KASK-School of Arts (Ghent), the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (University of Amsterdam), HKU Utrecht and to publications in Organised Sound magazine (Cambridge University Press, UK) the Orpheus Institute research Series (Leuven University Press) and an upcoming article in the Kunstlicht Tijdschrift Journal (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

He has regularly colaborated with other artistic disciplines, mainly as stable composer of the La Otra dance company (2001-2017), regularly staging works for dance/physical theatre in theatres and festivals in Buenos Aires.

As a pianist-improviser he collaborated with musicians like Axel Dorner, Jason Kahn, Keith Rowe, Andrea Neumann, Burkhard Beins, Rhodri Davies, Gunter Mueller, Lucio Capece, Robin Hayward, Sergio Merce and others, performing in venues and festivals in Berlin, Brussels, New York, Barcelona, London, Paris, Amsterdam and Lisbon and editing records in diverse specialized labels. 

He has been organizer of many contemporary and experimental music series in Buenos Aires between 2000 and 2009.
