The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) is a multidisciplinary research center within the University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz, Austria. The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics is located at the Studienzentrum Inffeldgasse on the Campus of the University of Technology. The Graz University of Music and Performing Arts - Graz University of Arts - with its 2,400 students in Graz and Oberschützen is an internationally renowned training center. It offers high-quality teaching and research, development and development of the arts at 17 institutes, two doctoral schools and a center for gender research. Located in the heart of Europe, the university unites a unique Austrian tradition in music and performing arts with a directional contemporary positioning. The Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics - IEM, founded in 1965, confines the development of the arts with research and experimental development, taking a pioneering role as an interface between science and art, between new technologies and musical practice. Research and development includes the fields of artistic research, signal processing and acoustics as well as computer music. The special infrastructure at the IEM allows experimental inter- and transdisciplinary questions to be investigated experimentally. The development and development of the arts is also supported by the development of new works of electronic music, sound and media art. The main aim of the program at IEM Graz is to make students more aware of the possibilities and procedures of computer music, and to convey the knowledge of how to use a computer music system. The Lehrstudio (teaching studio) is available for the necessary practice sessions; it is also the place where most of the classes are held. Research and development includes the areas of Artistic Research, Signal Processing and Acoustics as well as Computer Music. Concerning artistic research, the scientific research methods will be expanded to convey and further develop existing and newly acquired forms of knowledge by means of actual artistic activities. In the research area of signal processing and acoustics, the focus lies on analyzing sound – including the transformation and synthesis of sound – in time, frequency and place. In addition to investigations in signal and system theories, information relevant to the sense of hearing will also be included. Sonification, live electronics and interaction design are the main thematic branches that will be actively investigated in the area of computer music. The main research areas are: Artistic Research, Signal Processing and Acoustics, Computer Music. Artistic Research contains: sound and space, embodiment, algorithmic composition. Signal Processing and Acoustics contains: spatial audio, audio signal processing, psychoacoustics. Computer Music contains: sonification, interaction design.
