ROHAN CHANDER (electronics) (a.k.a AIY­YER) is an artist and producer based in New York and Los Angeles. His work concerns the positioning of personal experience upon post-digital culture, calling attention to identity, body, performativity, and bias. Chander’s primary engagement with genre space as a vehicle for critique of community against the self creates larger, often extra-terrestrial narratives about methods for self actualization. His work attempts to grapple with how these processes enable a malleable understanding of identity while recognizing our responsibility towards community, equity, and expressive liberty. Described as “hypersensory” by the Washington Post, Chander’s work has been commissioned by organizations including the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, the Matt Marks Impact Fund, and Bang on a Can, and he has had works performed by the Inter­national Contemporary Ensemble, Alarm Will Sound, Chromic, Sō Percussion, and Bear­­thoven. Chander was recently named a finalist for the 2022 Gaudeamus Award for his upcoming solo album Final Skin, to be released by Cantaloupe Music this spring
