Algorithms that Matter (Almat) is an artistic research project that aims
at understanding the increasing influence of algorithms, translating
them into aesthetic positions in sound. Throughout Almat, we built new
perspectives on algorithmic agency by subjecting the realm of algorithms
to sonic experimentation and diffractive reading, working on several
sound and intermedia pieces, inviting guest artists to participate in
artistic research residencies, and collaborating with national and
international partners to organise events such as workshops and new
formats in artistic research around the topics of Almat. The vast
collection of materials coming out of these instances was developed in
the form of a Continuous Exposition, a network of pages on the Research
Catalogue platform: texts, sketches, sounds, images, videos,
transcriptions, code. In the past year, all these materials were
annotated with meta data, and a parser software was developed to store
the data in the form of a novel search engine accessible at

In 2020, Almat collaborated with the project Algorithmic Segments, a
parcours in the context of Graz Kulturjahr 2020 that presented various
positions in sound art and digital art, spread across gallery and museum
spaces in the inner city of Graz. During the Signale Lecture, a short
version of the Algorithmic Segment video documentation will be featured.

Algorithms that Matter ran within the framework of the Austrian Science
Fund (FWF) – PEEK AR 403-GBL – and was funded by the Austrian National
Foundation for Research, Technology and Development (FTE) and by the
State of Styria. It was hosted by the Institute of Electronic Music and
Acoustics (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.
