Transposition Industries

We are proud to present Transposition Industries here at Piony Studio. Transposition Industries (TPI) is an art collective founded by Gerhard Eckel, Michael Schwab and David Pirrò. A trio of artists researching how scientific data can be transformed into art. They have shown their works in books, video, installations, as sculptures and graphic formations.

(A presentation of Transposition Industries in English will follow.)


At Piony Studio you will find our t-shirt "Correlations" which is available in several variants. The graphic pattern comes from mathematically transformed scientific simulations. Transpositions, Artistic Data Exploration

Transposition Industries is an artist collective involving Gerhard Eckel, Michael Schwab, and David Pirrò. In the project Transpositions - Artistic Data Exploration they investigated the possibility of generating new auditory and visual forms based on the analysis and mathematical transformation of scientific data.

Transposition Industries first collective work was Rebody . A video and installation piece in which the captured motion of a dancer is transformed into a dynamic drawing that informs a musical composition. An intense collaboration followed in the context of the artistic research project Transpositions - Artistic Data Exploration which produced many artworks, events and publications.

David Pirrò is a sound artist and researcher based in Graz, Austria. His works include interactive compositions and sound installations as well as audiovisual and electroacoustic pieces in which performative and spatial aspects are central. Departing from a radical inclusive point of view, he seeks ways of composing by which the work of art is constructed through mutual interaction of the agents involved in its performance. David is currently working at the IEM (Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics) as a lecturer and collaborating in various scientific and artistic research projects.
