Berit is a composer and researcher interested in the way we perceive, categorize and aestheticize sound. She approaches this question through academic and artistic research, which takes the form of constructing teaching methods and workshops, writing academically, composing and developing sound installations and music software. Her experience spans broadly from teaching and presenting at academic conferences to coding and making music, while consistently engaged in the same overarching enquiry into perception and sound. Recently she has taught workshops about building synthesizers and sound design through movement as part of the Digital Art Lab project of the Patching Zone. She has exhibited her installation work at the Elive Festival and the Festival a/d Werf in Utrecht. She programs in C++, C and Objective-C for projects such as STEIM's live sampling software LiSa, and has been part of the research group at STEIM since March 2010.
