The Institute:
The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics is a department of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz founded in 1965. It is a leading institution in its field, with more than 35 staff members of researchers and artists. IEM offers education to students in composition and computer music, sound engineering, sound design, contemporary music performance, and musicology. It is well connected to the University of Technology, the University of Graz as well as to the University of Applied Sciences Joanneum through three joint study programs.

The artwork produced at IEM is released through the Institute's own Open CUBE and Signale concert series, as well as through various collaborations with international artists and institutions.

What we expect from applicants:
- A project proposal that adds new perspectives to the Institute's activities and resonates well with the interests of IEM.
- Willingness to work on-site in Graz for the most part of the Residency.
- Willingness to exchange and share ideas, knowledge and results with IEM staff members and students, and engage in scholarly discussions.
- The ability to work independently within the Institute.
- A dissemination strategy as part of the project proposal that ensures the publication of the work, or documentation thereof, in a suitable format. This could be achieved for example through the release of media, journal or conference publication, a project website, or other means that help to preserve the knowledge gained through the Music Residency and make it available to the public.
- A public presentation as e.g. a concert or installation, which presents the results of the Artist Residency.


What we offer:
- 24/7 access to the facilities of the IEM.

- A monthly salary of approx. EUR 1100 net per month in addition to health and accident insurance.

What we cannot offer to the successful applicant:
- We can not provide any housing.
- We also cannot provide continuous assistance and support, although the staff is generally willing to help where possible.
- We can not host artist duos or groups, because of spatial limitations.
- We can not offer any additional financial support for travel or material expenses.
