Caroline Profanter


Caroline Profanter, born 1985 in Bolzano, studied Computer Music and Electronic Media at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and is currently attending a Master’s degree program in Acousmatic Composition at the Conservatoire Royal de Mons in Belgium. Works in the field of electroacoustic music and sound art as a composer and performer.
Her focus lies on acousmatic composition, soundscapes and live electronics. She is interested in sounds and noises taken from the context of everyday life, transformed digitally and used as pure material. Therefore she collects and classifies recorded sounds and relates them to instrumental sounds or generated sounds, from analog synthesizers
and feedback­ systems. She collaborates with different musicians and artists within interdisciplinary projects between video, literature and radio art.

Since 2009 she is an active member of Velak ­ association for Electroacoustic Music of Vienna. Since 2011 she is on the committee of FKL – Forum Klanglandschaft. Together with Ulrike Bernard she was awarded with the Transart­SKB­Museion Prize 2013 for the Live ­Radio­ Play Aui Oi held in the cable car Rittner Seilbahn in Bolzano (I).
