Gerhard Eckel uses sound to explore unconventional ways of world making. He aims at articulating aesthetic and epistemic forms of listening, engaging all senses. His works are the result of research processes drawing on the practice and theory of music composition, sound art, choreography and dance, installation art, interaction design and digital instrument making. Gerhard works as professor of Computer Music and Multimedia at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. He also serves as affiliated professor at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
Besides his artistic work and teaching, he directs publicly funded transdisciplinary research projects and supervises scientific, scholarly, and artistic doctoral research.
Gerhard Eckel will be present at impuls between July 26th and August 3rd.
