PhD Thesis

Franziska Schroeder - saxophonist and theorist
(Germany | UK)

Research interests:

The intersection of critical theory and performance in digital environments,
in particular the role of the body in the age of technological change.


In 2006 Franziska was awarded a PhD from the University of Edinburgh for her research into performance and theories of embodiment.

She has since written for many international journals, including Leonardo, Organised Sound, Performance Research, Cambridge Publishing and Routledge. She has published a book on performance and the threshold and an edited volume on user-generated content for Cambridge Scholars.

Franziska has performed with many international musicians including Joan La Barbara, Pauline Oliveros, Stelarc, the Avatar Orchestra, Carin Levine, Chris Brown, Tom Arthurs and Evan Parker.

Franziska has several CDs on the creative source label, a recording on the SLAM label with a semi-autonomous technological artifact, guitarist Han-earl Park and saxophonist Bruce Coates, and recently released a recording on ‘Buster and Friends’ (digital download) with Han-earl Park (guitar).

Franziska has been an AHRC and a RCUK Research Fellow at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast and is now a Lecturer at the School of Creative Arts, Belfast, where she coaches 3rd year recitalists and MA performance students.
