My name is Andreas and I must be some kind of artist. I did my diploma thesis in Mediadesign at HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd and earned a MA in Musicolgy from KFU Graz. Sometimes I do things that you can see
but sometimes I also do things that you can hear. And sometimes even both. In fact for me it makes no difference.
My studio is called ›the void‹. This website is a collection of works – regardless whether they`re audible
or visible – that emerged from the void.
As an artist I am interested in the intersections between art and science. My special interest lies in the aesthetics of algorithmic and generative art and music. Beside my practical work I wrote essays – for example on the construction of identity in social media and the web, on the role of chance in arts and especially composition or audiovisual aesthetics of music in movies. I am also one of the editors of music media publishing. I enjoy coding with Processing and JQuery.
At the moment I´m at my PHD at Julius-Maximilians University Würzburg. My subject is algorithmic Composition. I also teach ›Creative Programming‹ at Kunstuniversität Linz and ›Medientechnologien und angewandte Informatik‹ at Graz' very own Ortweinschule in the department of Grafic- and Communication-Design.
