Aaron Ximm / Quiet American

Aaron Ximm (b. 1970) is a San-Francisco-based field recordist and sound artist. He is best known for his composition, installation, and performance work as Quiet American, much of which can be found at www.quietamerican.org. From 2001 to 2005, Aaron curated and hosted the Field Effects concert series, which, like his own work, sought to showcase the quiet, fragile, and lovely side of sound art, particularly that working with found sound and field recordings.

Ximm performed at the Tenth Annual Activating The Medium festival in 2007, and contributed an installation at the Seventh Annual Activating The Medium festival in 2004.
