DB Amorin is an artist from Honolulu, Hawai’i currently living and working in Portland, Oregon USA. He works within video, expanded audio and augmented environments, drawing upon DIY methodologies and using lo-fi or open source technology to create mediated experiences.

Since 2005, he has curated deepwhitesound, an online exhibition of experimental audio by international artists. His work has been supported with awards from several organizations including the Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Precipice Fund grant funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Calligram Foundation and administered by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) in 2013, and Open Signal Portland Community Media Center in Portland, Oregon.
