Senem Pirler is an intermedia-sound artist whose work includes sound engineering & production, sound design, as well as video art and audiovisual performance. Born in Turkey, she studied classical piano at Hacettepe State Conservatory and sound engineering & design at Istanbul Technical University (MIAM). She developed her artistry over ten years working as a composer, performer, and recording engineer in Turkey before moving to the U.S. in 2010 to study Music Technology at NYU with a Fulbright Fellowship. She is currently finishing her Ph.D. in Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and working on her practice-based dissertation, titled “Creating a Queer Utopia in Audiovisual Space.” Her current artistic practice is an interdisciplinary attempt that crosses over into sound art, video art, dance, performance, and installation.
