Andrew Siedenburg is an artist, sound designer and filmmaker based in New York. His art practice weaves into his sound work for film, as each explores materials, emotional response to an image, and mystery within the banal. His work resists the urge to categorize or restrain the possibilities between sound, music, image and material.

Andrew started his career in 2012 as a recording studio engineer working with 24-track 2-inch tape transferred directly to digital. This built on an innate passion for sound, its harmonics, and its musicality.

He began making photographs in 2016 at The School of the ICP, which led to his receiving an MFA in Photography & Media from CalArts in 2020—further developing into a material art practice and filmmaking.

He was part of the of the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2022 and has shown installation works at galleries in New York and Los Angeles. He has worked as a sound designer and production sound mixer on short films and features, most recently Family Portrait directed by Lucy Kerr, which was an Official Selection of Locarno Film Festival’s Concorso Cineasti del presente in 2023.

Siedenburg works independently on sound for film projects through his studio, Color Decibel, and is co-owner of the doc house Lost Horizon Films. He is a current recipient of the Creatives Rebuild New York Artist Employment Grant and is working on a documentary on environmental justice and land use issues on the North Shore of Staten Island.
