The institute sees itself as an interface between natural science and arts, between new technologies and musical practice. Research and development include the field of “Acoustics” and theoretical work as well as putting into practice conceptual formulations of sound studies, computer music and media art. Exploring and unfolding of the arts concentrate on the development of artistic forms of expression and aesthetical questions. Assigned to the institute are interdisciplinary education in the field of electrical engineering/audio engineering together with the Graz Institute of Technology, computer music education in the field of composition, and courses on scientific consolidation of the practical/theoretical studies of the art and of the inter-university studies of musicology which is organized in cooperation with the University of Graz.
