intra-sonic is an electronic duo based in Graz, Austria. Consisting of an engineer (Visda Goudarzi) and a composer (Artemi - Maria Gioti), intra-sonic focuses on the exploration of sonic human-computer interaction both from a performative and a compositional perspective. Through our performances we try to explore different notions of human-machine interaction, including live coding, new interfaces for musical expression and artificial intelligence. In addition to interaction, our interests include sonification and participatory and collaborative sound art.
Artemi - Maria Gioti
Artemi - Maria Gioti (b. 1990) is a composer and researcher working across the disciplinary boundaries between art, science and technology. Her interests include among others human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, sonification and the development of mechanically controlled and sensor-augmented instruments.
She studied Composition at the University of Macedonia (Greece) and Electroacoustic Composition with K. Essl at the University of Music and performing Arts of Vienna. She holds a Master's Degree in Composition - Computer Music from the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) of the University of Music and Performing Arts of Graz (teacher: Gerhard Eckel).
Her compositions include works for solo instruments, ensemble, live and interactive electronics and fixed and generative media and have been performed in Greece, Austria, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands and in the USA. As a composer and researcher she has appeared in international festivals and conferences, among others: ICMC 2016 (HKU Utrecht, Netherlands), SMC 2016 (HfMT Hamburg, Germany), INTER/actions 2016 (Bangor University, UK), Electroacoustic Winds 2015 (University of Aveiro, Portugal), ICAD 2015 (IEM Graz, Austria), Next_generation 6.0 Festival (ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany), 6th International Symposium on Music/Sonic Art (Musikhochschule Karlsruhe, Germany), 3rd International Forum for Young Composers (Lisbon, Portugal) a.o.
Visda Goudarzi is currently a Phd. candidate at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) of the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. Her research interests are in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Auditory Interfaces, Sonic Interaction Design, and Data Sonification. She holds a Master's degree in Music, Science, and Technology from CCRMA (Stanford) and in Computer Science (specialized in HCI) from the Vienna University of Technology. Besides research, she curates Open CUBE concert series at IEM, and teaches Live Electronics and Sonification.
