Ulla Rauter, born 1980 in Wr. Neustadt, Austria, studied Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. As a media artist and musician she works at the interface between sound and fine art – her works include performative sculptures, music performances and self-built instruments. One main field of her work is the development of experimental sound devices. Her sensor-based electronic music instruments have been shown internationally in solo performances or as objects in exhibitions.
Two other recurring themes in her artistic work are silence as a material and place of longing – since 2009 she has been realizing a series of interactive works in public space on this subject – and the human voice, which is the basic material for her visual and acoustic translation and transformation processes. In 2010 she co-founded the annual sound-art show Sound Manifestos. Since 2013 she’s got a lectureship at the University of Applied Arts, Department of Digital Art.
