Gerriet K. Sharma is a composer and sound artist.
He studied Media Arts (Dipl. Media Arts degree) at the Academy of
Media Arts Cologne and received an MA in Composition/Computer Music
with distinction from the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz
(KUG). He took part in the Dr. artium programme at artistic-scientific
doctoral school of KUG, supervised by Marco Stroppa, Marko Ciciliani,
Robert Höldrich and Elena Ungeheuer. His doctoral thesis is titled
“Composing Sculptural Sound Phenomena in Computer Music” (Dr. art
with distinction). He is currently senior artistic researcher within
the project Orchestrating Space by Icosahedral Loudspeaker (OSIL)
which is funded by the Austrian Programme for Arts-Based Research(
His sculptural sound compositions have been invited to and performed at several international festivals (e.g. NIME, ICMC, SMC, MuSA, NYCEMF, next generation ZKM, ICSA, ELIA NEU/NOW Festival). In August 2014 he presented his work at Internationale Ferienkurse Darmstadt, Germany.
Within all the fields of his activities Sharma addresses the impact on and alteration of human perception through (auditive) media. Within the past 15 years he was especially working on the development of a dynamic spatial-sound conception in electroacoustic sound projection (WFS; HOA, Binaural, IKO). Within his Residency at the Institute of Musicology Wuerzburg/Germany 2011 – 2013 he conceived and established the Atelier for Sound Research with Elena Ungeheuer. One of the fundamental research topics of the atelier is description and verbalization of electro acoustic spatial phenomena.
He received scholarships by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in 2007 and 2009. In 2008 he was awarded with the German Sound Art Award, being the youngest artist to receive this price heretofore. He received a research scholarship by the Austrian Ministry for Science and Research bm:wf and the KUG in 2010 and the special grant for Artistic Research by the KUG in 2011. The state of Styria/Austria supported his series of “Building-Sound-Compositions” Oblivious to Gravity from 2010 – 2014 and his series of site specific sound installations Archipel in 2013 as well as the Kunststiftung North-Rhine-Westphalia in 2014. In spring 2014 he was composer in residence at ZKM Karlsruhe/Germany.
The German Goethe Institute sent him on a three months performance and workshop tour with the ensemble slope performing in 15 Brazilian Cities in 2008. Between 2008 and 2015 he was curator of “signale-graz” a concert series for electroacoustic music, algorithmic composition, radio art and performance at Ligeti Hall, MUMUTH Graz.
