Expert Bio

Norbert Herber, a musician and sound artist, is a senior lecturer and unit director of media arts and production in The Media School at Indiana University. His work explores the relationship between people and sound within mediated environments — spaces created by software, sensors, speakers and other mediating technologies.

Field recordings, live instruments and electronics are brought together in an ever-changing, generative mix of texture and tone that leverages the processing capabilities of contemporary technology to create music specific to a place and time. Using this approach, Herber is focused on creating sound and music in digital environments for art, entertainment and communications applications. His works have been exhibited in Europe, Asia, South America and the United States.
