As a sound-artist, Stefano Murgia searches for new methods of creating and presenting music. After having studied to become a sound engineer, he continued his research in the field of sound. While studying ArtScience at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague, Murgia had the chance to research sound in both philosophical and scientific approaches. Here, he started to make his own instruments and speakers and drew inspiration from the work of Moondog, Harry Partch, among others.

In the past years Murgia focussed on topics such as ‘sonic architecture’ and ‘acoustic ecology’. Through his research he got inspired by the source-path-receiver concept. Where this concept normally gets applied to deal with environmental noise, Murgia uses this model as the base for his projects. He interprets the source-path-receiver interface as follows:
The creation of the sound source, the location where the source will be, and the way in which it will be presented and perceived.

Areas of research:
sonic architecture - sonic ecology in an urban setting - acoustics - microtones - the language of objects and sounds - (musical) instruments - (modular) synthesizers - spatial and/or nonlinear compositions - metallurgy
