David Pirrò (*1978 Udine, Italy), is a sound artist and researcher based in Graz, Austria. His works include interactive compositions and sound installations as well as audiovisual and electroacoustic pieces in which performative and spatial aspects are central. Departing from a radical inclusive point of view, he seeks ways of composing by which the work of art is constructed through mutual interaction of the agents involved in its performance.
David studied piano at the Conservatory "J. Tomadini". In 2004 he obtained the Master degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of Triest. In 2005 he worked at the CSC (Center for Computational Sonology) in Padua wih Prof. De Poli. in 2007 David concluded his studies at the Conservatory "G. Tartini" in Triest with a Master in Computer Music and audio-visual composition.
Since 2007 David works at the IEM (Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics) in Graz, Austria as lecturer and researcher. He collaborates in various scientific and artistic research projects on sonification ("QCD-audio", "An Acoustic Interface for tremor analysis"), sound spatialisation ("The Choreography of Sound") interaction design in Computer Music ("Embodied Generative Music", "Klangräume"). He writes his dissertation Thesis in Computer Music (tutor Prof. Gerhard Eckel) "Composing Interaction".
