John Grzinich (Estonia/US) is an artist working with various practices combining sound, moving image, site-specificity, and collaborative social structures. He has been composing, performing and exhibiting since the mid 1990's. He has performed and exhibited in North and South America, Europe and Japan.

The focus of his work in recent years has been to combine sound and listening practices with various media to challenge age old anthropocentric perceptions of the world we inhabit. CDs of his compositions have been published on such labels as SIRR, Staalplaat, Edition Sonoro, Mystery Sea, CMR, erewhon, Intransitive Recordings, Digital Narcis, Taalem, Semper Florens, and Cloud of Statics. Apart from his personal artistic practice, he coordinates activities for the artist-run organization MoKS and is currently a visiting Associate Professor at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
