GIULIA RAE: POLARVILLE – DITCHING SCHOOL
Giulia Rae (she/her) is an Italian composer, researcher, performer and sound designer currently based in Turin (IT). With a background in noiserock and punk, she obtained a Bachelor Degree in Electroacoustic Composition in 2018 at Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi (Turin, IT), and a Research Master Degree at the Institute of Sonology (The Hague, NL) in 2021, where she currently is a Research Associate. With a keen interest in creative coding and sound design, semi-generative systems and live performance, she bases her artistic practice and research on immersive sound and the listening experience. Influenced by the theoretical discourse on human-machine interaction, embodiment, deep listening and perception, she develops her works in the field of algorithmic music, VR, multichannel and 3D audio. She uses coding as her main creative tool for sound design and composition, where the border between the two is blurred by a process-based approach.
In 2022 she worked as an artist in residency in the studio for 3D audio at CICM of Paris VIII and at iMAL studios in Brussels, working with the Kinetic Sound System.
Since 2016 she carries out a solo project where she explores the intersections between algorithmic music and club-oriented electronic music, performing in venues and independent festivals around Europe. Her releases are on Søvn Records, Light Item, Ovaal, Intersezioni, Solium Records, Guerrilla Bizarre.
In parallel, she works as a composer and sound designer for video, theatre, dance and multidisciplinary projects.
