Giertz has a background in choreography as well as engineering. Today she works with physicality of sound in relation to bodies, structures and electronics.
The core of her work is immersive audio which is often manifested in multichannel sound compositions. Since the relationship between the body of the listener and the sound in the space is such a vital part of her method, some of the stereo versions on this website will just give an idea of the music and can not be compared with the embodied experience taking place in a physcial composition.
She has presented works at the Venice Biennale, Unsound, Intonal, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Audiorama, MDT, K3 Hamburg, Norrlandsoperan and Norberg amongst others.
She gives lectures in immersive audio, synthesis and composition at the Malmö Arts Academy and Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) in Stockholm. As an audio engineer she has been supervising the development of the multichannel studio at the Royal Arts Academy in Stockholm.
Giertz is currently based in Stockholm, Sweden.
