TheISRO_ArtistResidency – Shun Owada at the Studio

The Indian Sonic Research Organisation is a Bangalore based collective of instrument builders and artists dedicated to the proliferation of experimental music and sound art. 


We run an open community sound studio in Bangalore where we build instruments, learn and collaborate through workshops, performances and artist residencies. 


Our studio is always open to the public. You are welcome to drop by our studio to build instruments, record, work on your sound or just hang out. To find out more about the studio, please visit the studio page.

The studio also hosts regular workshops. If you would like to participate in our workshops, please subscribe to our mailing list and visit the workshop page for more information. Our workshops are beginner friendly and range from practical instrument building and D.I.Y electronics to more process based workshops such as deep listening and introduction to sound art.


For sound artists and experimental musicians, we offer 4 residencies every year. The artist residencies are open to international artists as well. We offer accommodation, studio spaces and help with funding for travel and realization of projects. Please visit this page for more information about the residency.
