Sebastian Frisch (DE) researches and creates works as an artist, musician, and developer. He makes use of a diverse set of media technologies to create immersive experiences and discover possible connections between the digital and the palpable. His main interest belong to the fields of sound, space and acoustic ecology. Sebastian studied Sound Art and Computer Science at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and graduated recently from the ArtScience Master’s program at the Royal Conservatory and the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.

Sebastian founded his studio for immersive experiences in the year 2011 to create a framework for his interdisciplinary work between Art, Science and Technology. He has presented his work at festivals, galleries and institutes like Ars Electronica Festival - Linz (AT), GOGBOT Festival - Enschede (NL), Zone2Source - Amsterdam (NL), Oddstream Festival - Nijmegen (NL), Art:Rotterdam (NL), Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (AT) and V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media - Rotterdam (NL).

Beside's running his own studio, he supports other artists in the making of their works with the development of concepts and technologies.

I see the continuous development of my research methodology as a key aspect of my art practice. My method frames the development of my artworks and draws attention towards the context of the works. The method I currently use is inspired by a sequential approach often used in scientific research.
The sequential steps of my research cycle can be described as : observe - explore - idea - general theory - question - observe - explore - make - observe - reflect - question - explore - make - observe - reflect,. . . . . . , result.
