About Me

Short bio, CV and contact

Tadej Droljc

I am an interdisciplinary artist and engineer who works in the field of electronic music (genre-based and experimental), experimental audiovisual composition, sound for picture and intermedia art. My work consists of composing, sound design, sound visualization, image sonification, programming my own musical and audiovisual instruments and effects, designing and programming system for interactive installations, utilization of unconventional MIDI/OSC interfaces or controllers, field and studio recordings and music mixing. In the past I was also a musical journalist and worked at a radio for 9 years.

I graduated with a honours degree in Computer Music at the University of Hull (BSc first-class). In 2014 I was awarded a Denis Smalley Scholarship in Electroacoustic Music by University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM). Here I am pursuing a doctorate under the mentorship of dr. Alexander Harker and prof. Pierre Alexandre Tremblay (with support of scholarship from Slovenian Ministry of Culture). My PhD research is about audiovisual composition based on non-hierarchical real-time relationships between music, sound and physically-based 3D animation. At the University of Huddersfield I also teach and assess undergraduate module Computer Composition.

In 2017 I won a Most Promising Video Artist Award at the Madatac festival in Madrid. Currently I am in the final selection for Lumen’s Meural Student Award with my audiovisual composition Capillaries Capillaries which I also had an honour to perform at the Ars Electronica Festival.

In last years I collaborated with or executed projects for institutions or individuals such as Mini Teater, Radio Študent, POP TV, Kiberpipa, K4, Rampa Lab, IRZU (institute for sonic research), Martin Bricelj Baraga, Saša Spačal, Gea Erjavec, Bright Visuals, Rotonda Museum, PiNA, MC Kotlovnica etc.
