In this episode of the Immersive Audio Podcast, Oliver Kadel and Monica Bolles are joined by composer and sound artist Mariam Gviniashvili from Oslo, Norway. 

Mariam works as a composer and sound artist  – combining electronics, electroacoustics and 3D sound technology with visuals, dance and live performance to penetrate deep into the physical and emotional essence of sound and space. Growing up in eastern Georgia, she sang and played the piano, and studied composition in Tbilisi, Budapest and Oslo. Through her subject matter, her compositions display a curiosity about the world and society – from distractions during online meetings in DAYDREAMING (2022), to the viral patterns in DECONSTRUCTION (2020). Other works explore the Syrian war, a globally- sourced collection of songs and prayers, and a river soundscape in Oslo. Gviniashvili’s music has appeared at festivals all over the world – the New York Electroacoustic Music Festival (USA), BEAST FEaST (UK), Transitions at CCRMA (USA), ICMC (Korea), Mixtur Festival (Spain), ARD Hoerspieltage (Germany), Ars Electronica (Austria), Klingt Gut (Germany), Heroines of Sound (Germany) and Ultima Festival (Norway).

Mariam talks about her journey as a conventional composer evolving into a multidisciplinary sound artist performing her work in spatial audio on multi-channel arrays in different immersive spaces across the world.
