In his talk, Marcus Maeder describes interactions, overlaps and potential for innovation at the interfaces of art and science that deal with environmental issues. Maeder will show examples from his own projects and provide an insight into the relatively young research discipline of Acoustic Ecology. Research projects in the Amazon, in the Swiss Alps and in Ireland are reflected in Maeder's media art works, which have attracted international attention and open up new, sonic perspectives on the environment.

Marcus Maeder is an artist, researcher and composer of electronic music. He studied Fine Arts at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences HSLU, Philosophy at the Fernuniversität in Hagen and completed his PhD in Environmental Systems Science at ETH Zürich. Maeder has been working as a researcher at the Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology (ICST) of the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK since 2005 and is Humboldt Research Fellow at Freie Universität Berlin. In his research, Maeder is working on ecoacoustic investigations of areas, communities and organisms under the influence of climate change and other environmental issues. He contextualises his artistic and scientific work in the fields of Acoustic and Soundscape Ecology, as well as Artistic Research.
