Bio

"I make music and write code to listen in, finding the fractured and the fragile. My search takes me between natural chaotic order, software sublimity and the fundamental nature of sound."

Erik Natanael Gustafsson is a musician, coder, composer and new media artist. In his work he brings the vulnerable and the invisible to the foreground, often through the use of intricate software processes. Erik's work places us with the tiny, the invisible, and the fragile to unveil a reverent and enchanted view of the world.

Erik has built several digital musical instruments, created public audiovisual installations, regularly performs as a violist, and has written and produced music for short films, for which he received the award for Best Original Music, Novemberfestivalen 2016. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Composition from the University of Gothenburg and a Master of Arts (First Class Honours) in Art and Technology from the University of Limerick.

Since October 2019 he is working as a Research Engineer in Software Art at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) together with the re|thread collective, bringing the invisible software that powers society to the ears and eyes of citizens through music, visualisations and interactive installations.
