Particular pieces and systems:

Algorithms are no longer an abstract formalisation, the image of thought, immaterial, static and timeless. They emerge from artistic praxis and experimentation, become entangled in material processes that produce space and time.

SoundProcesses/Mellite is an open source computer music software framework and environment, respectively.

A modular installation series investigating the relationship between the algorithmic and the corporeal.

A forerunner project on the iterative and durational nature of algorithms, their resistance to coming to completion.

Exhibition project on becoming swarm, becoming a holobiont. Almat contributed to its micro-symposium.

Sound art piece studying the act of re-configuration, coming back to a previous piece and rethinking/remaking it.

A wearable for two or three persons. How do you experience a hybrid shared reality?

An improvisation duo, an attempt of aligning, orienting, coupling systems with one another.

A sound installation and the question of writing and graphematicity, and the process of its repeated reconfiguration.

the continuous exposition emerges in the background, develops threads which will be assembled on this page.

⬀Algorithms that Matter (ALMAT) is an artistic research project within the framework of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) – PEEK AR 403-GBL – and funded by the Austrian National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development (FTE) and by the State of Styria. It is hosted by the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

impuls academy 2017 & 2019

A "workshop-in-exposition" implemented in collaboration with BEK Bergen Center for Electronic Arts and a group of artists who responded to our call for participation.

Workshop in the special programme of impuls academy, co-tutored with Agostino Di Scipio (2017) and Robin Minard (2019).

Embedded in the ZKM festival inSonic, we issued a special call for presentations (papers and performances) around the question of spatialities of the algorithmic.

A collaboration with the European Master Module in Art, Science, Technology (MAST), coordinated in Austria by the Institute of Spatial Design of the TU Graz.

A series of exhibitions connected across public space through a digital sound work, this project is part of the Graz Culture 2020 programme on sustainable urban future.

Research iterations:

Experimenting with ultra-sound; creating feedback configurations with ultra-sound; visiting Riga; talking about Hayles' Unthought; understanding the Patterns library by translating it to a different framework.


A place where everything that happens between iterations, between events, between pieces, can live. A breathing space for thoughts.
