Julia Läger (Physics, STM Imaging) – Talk
Analytical Engine (Experimental Music) – AV Performance
with a short introduction by Alice Cannavà
The second session of The […] Experiment is coming! This time the intersections and tensions between hard sciences and the arts that we aim at exploring will be embodied in one person, Julia Läger aka Analytical Engine. She will start by giving a talk about techniques and examples from her research in physics — focused on scanning tunneling microscope (STM); then, after a short break, she will gently switch to her work as musician — partially informed by her scientific practices — by presenting a live audiovisual performance.

ABOUT JULIA LÄGER
She graduated in Physics in 2015 with a focus on investigating 2D materials with scanning probe microscopy. As ANALYTICAL ENGINE she uses her voice a the source material, algorithmically layered into dense ambiences and merging with sonified images inspired by her background in science. The results of her improvisations are eerie soundscapes transforming from mesmerizing pop drone to pulsating noise.
