Billy Roisz

(born in Austria, resident in Vienna). composer.  Roisz has done intensive work with video and sound media since the end of the 1990s. The focus of her work lies in experimenting with linking auditory and visual stimuli. Her work is the about the interaction of sound and image, the interchangeability or unity of image- and sound–producing electromagnetic signals in the generating machines. The implementation of these experiments usually occurs in the form of live performances in collaboration with musicians from the areas of experimental electronic and noise, as well as new and old composed music. A further field of work is the production of single- screen works for cinema. Recently, music production has become an increasingly important part of her work.
