Deploying diverse media, including sound, text, and moving image, Chattopadhyay’s large-scale installation and live performances address contemporary issues of climate crisis, human intervention in the environment, urbanity, migration, race, and decolonisation.

    His sound-works have been published by Gruenrekorder (Germany) and Touch (UK); and his writings on sound and media arts have appeared in publications such as MIT Press’s Leonardo Electronic Almanac and the University of Leiden’s Journal of Sonic Studies. His books The Nomadic Listener and The Auditory Setting are forthcoming this year respectively from Berlin’s Errant Bodies Press and the Edinburgh University Press. Chattopadhyay holds a PhD in sound studies from the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, Leiden University, Netherlands, and an MA in new media from Aarhus University, Denmark, and recently completed a one-year Mellon postdoctoral fellowship at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
